What Is My Body Type/How Do I Know My Body Type?


Did you know that the somatotypes, AKA the three body types — endomorph, ectomorph, mesomorph — as well as the triangle body types, 10 body types, hormone body types, etc. are not grounded in any real science? They are arbitrary, subjective shapes with no actual scientific basis.

Current mainstream science and medical doctors define body type by three main scientific standards:

  1. The Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) found in any mainstream scientific human body anatomy book (directly influenced by genetics/DNA), with fully developed muscles/muscle mass, no less
  2. Body Mass Index (BMI), calculated directly relative to the BT1
  3. Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), which is the number of calories per day your specific body needs for basic survival functioning, calculated directly relative to the BT1 and BMI

Body Type Quiz, Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) - Scientific What Is My Body Type Quiz/Test
Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1)

Mainstream science (scientists and medical doctors) says that your body (really every human body) looks identical to the Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) so long as your body is safely within your scientifically/medically safe BMI weight range. The only exception is if a licensed medical doctor has diagnosed you with a specific malformation, underdevelopment, abnormality, or the like (such as Poland syndrome or scoliosis), which, all things relative, is rare. So, have you been diagnosed by a licensed mainstream medical doctor with a specific abnormality, malformation, underdevelopment, or the like?

The Importance of Skinny Fat

 

If not, then why are you experiencing skinny fat? The skinny fat phenomenon (some form of fat including cellulite, thin fat, saggy skin, loose skin, crepey skin, and/or normal weight obesity) means having an unusual amount of fat on your body even though you are safely within your medically/scientifically safe BMI weight range. Normal weight obesity is defined as having too much fat on your body when within your safe BMI weight range and carries with it the same relative risks as the disease of obesity. Obesity is having too much fat on your body which takes you outside your safe BMI weight range.

Again, mainstream science and medical doctors say every human being is born in a BT1. So, why do you have skinny fat where there should be muscles/muscle mass when within your safe BMI? Where is the muscle/mass? In people under 40, especially people under 30, there is no scientific evidence that shows that safe weight loss causes a loss of default muscle/mass — during safe weight loss, the body will always burn fat and calories consumed first.


Why Current Body Type Standards are Not Accurate – Scientific Body Type Quiz (Women/Men)

 

The Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) is not accurate because, genetically, it is a fact that any part of the human body can be underdeveloped or undeveloped, to whatever degree. This includes muscles/muscle mass and vertebrae/posture. If you are within safe BMI but still have skinny fat where there should be muscles/mass, this is due to genetics. 

Scientific Body Type Quiz - BMI Weight Scale
Body Mass Index (BMI) Weight Range Scale

Body Mass Index (BMI) is not accurate because, genetically, skinny fat, including normal weight obesity, is real (both terms are quite new, only being recognized by science in the last decade or so). If, when within safe BMI, you have skinny fat in place of where there should be muscle on your body, it directly affects your metabolism, no less. This is because one pound of muscle mass burns six (6) calories per day, but one pound of skinny fat and/or fat burns only two (2) to three (3) calories per day. As well, it is possible to have excess muscle mass on your body which will put you into the overweight or obese columns of your BMI weight scale, but because you do not have excess fat on your body you are not overweight or obese. 

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is not accurate because, metabolically, the scientifically calculated standard Mifflin St Jeor equation and Harris-Benedict equation for activity do not take into account skinny fat. The more skinny fat you have on your body, particularly when within safe BMI, the more negatively your metabolism is affected (fat/skinny fat burns fewer calories than muscle), the less accurate your BMR calculations are, and thus the fewer calories your body actually needs daily. 


What Is My Body Type, Scientific Body Type Test/Quiz Variables – How to Know What Your Body Type Is


What Is My Body Type - The Four Body Types, Body Type Quiz Male/Men & Women/Female)
The Four Body Types

The Scientific Body Type Quiz for women and men uses widely accepted science-based variables including diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism, BMI, BMR, and genetics/DNA, no less. Whether biologically male or female, the Body Type Test helps you identify your muscle mass development (or lack thereof) and skinny fat based on the vertebrae in your spine. There are 26 vertebrae in the human spine (24 moveable and two fixed bones) — cervical (7), thoracic (12), lumbar (5), sacrum (1), coccyx (1).

Body Type One (BT1) – All 26 Vertebrae Fully Developed, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (0 Vertebrae Underdeveloped in relation to Posture & Muscles/Muscle Mass)

Body Type Two (BT2) – Between 25 and 18 Vertebrae Fully Developed, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (1-8 Vertebrae Underdeveloped in relation to Posture & Muscles/Muscle Mass)

Body Type Three (BT3) – Between 17 and 09 Vertebrae Fully Developed, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (9-17 Vertebrae Underdeveloped in relation to Posture & Muscles/Muscle Mass)

Body Type Four (BT4) – Between 08 to 0 Vertebrae Fully Developed, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (18-26 Vertebrae Underdeveloped in relation to Posture & Muscles/Muscle Mass)

The Four Body Types - Scientific Body Type Quiz Examples, BT1, BT2, BT3, BT4
Note how the Body Type One (BT1) looks identical to the Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) (see above) with all muscles and muscle mass fully developed, yet the obvious lack of muscles/muscle mass on the Body Type Two (BT2) around no less than lumbar 1, Body Type Three (BT3) around no less than thoracic 5-12, and Body Type Four (BT4) pretty much everywhere.


Scientific Body Type Quiz Results – Science-Based Metabolism & Health Scores

 

The Body Type Quiz scientifically calculates your science-based Mifflin St Jeor formula FORMR metabolism score. It takes into account skinny fat to determine the Standard Mifflin and Adjusted Mifflin BMRs and whether you have a slow or normal metabolism (fast is not possible at this time). The Harris-Benedict formula calculates the FORMA metabolic rate score to gauge your activity level, be it decreased, steady, or increased.

Further, the Quiz/Test also measures the basic science-based diet, exercise, and lifestyle FORCA health score. Moreover, it tallies the more comprehensive science-based diet, exercise, and lifestyle FORTH health score. Finally, skinny fat and fat tendencies (overweight or obese, including childhood and adult obesity) are identified.

All of which offers final results that allow you to better understand how to know what your body type is, be it a Body Type One (BT1), Body Type Two (BT2), Body Type Three (BT3), or Body Type Four (BT4) — one of The Four Body Types.

    Holistic Body Typing

    The Somatotypes or body types as they are popularly called were first described by W.Sheldon as endomorphs mesomorphs and ectomorphs based on temperament and body types, these somatotypes have been disproved by a lot of scientists as there is currently no proof to back these body types up. These somatotypes have never been scientifically validated by actual controlled experiments. You can check this out on https://muscleevo.net/body-type/

    The Hormonal Body types were popularised by a weight loss expert, Eric Berg, who described the Adrenal, Thyroid, Liver and Ovary body types based on hormonal imbalances, as the reason many people could not lose weight or gain weight. It is very interesting to note that there is actually no science backing these body types. Not one research paper!

    On the other hand, This quiz takes on a more holistic and scientific approach of considering variables that could contribute to an individuals weight such as Genetics, BMI, Skinny fat, Diet, exercise, lifestyle as well as metabolism. All these variables have at one point or the other been proven by research as factors that influence weight gain thus giving this quiz a very strong scientific backing. This is further validated by https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/weight-management/adult-overweight-obesity/factors-affecting-weight-health

    Before now, I used to think I was a borderline meso/endomorph (I never quite found a type that fit perfectly) however upon participation in this quiz, I have discovered that I am a Body type 3. I really appreciate the fact that some of the questions about my weight have been provided by this quiz.

    Very eye opening

    It was eye-opening to have the scientific evidence (based on the Fellow One Research Body Type Science data) that the mainstream way that we are taught about body types isn't accurate or scientific. Based on the evidence provided by Fellow One, a person can fall into certain statistical categories which defines them as a specific scientific body type - a Body Type One/BT1, Two/BT2, Three/BT3, or Four/BT4. The mainstream says everyone is a BT1, even if they are experiencing skinny fat and have underdeveloped musculature. Learning about the many other factors taken into account, (which areas of your body experience skinny fat and fat, genetics, vertebrae, muscle mass, and posture, etc.) gives a better understanding of your specific body needs to help in terms of your specific body type (and health) based on your specific metrics.

    Some of the previous theories on body types lacked proper scientific evidence and study. For example, the somatotype research done by Dr. Sheldon in the 1940s, while sadly it's still widely used today, those endomorph, ecotmorph, mesomorph body types have been fully debunked as nonsense. See this link for a quick synopsis on Sheldon's theory and why it's nonsense, lacking scientific basis and usefulness. https://www.reddit.com/r/gainit/comments/nm4x5p/two_articles_on_why_somatotypes_are_complete/

    Overall I'm very happy with the information I've received about my body type.

    Really useful

    Since I was little my body mass index has been low. It has never been dangerous and I have never suffered from obesity problems.
    However, my body has always looked different from the body type 1. I have cellulite on my thighs and buttocks and I have trouble gaining muscle.
    This investigation is more complete and takes into account more factors than the others, like muscle, genetics, skinny fat, diet, exercise, etc. I understand now why I'm a body type 2. It's not just about my weight and height, but about more other variants.
    With this, I consider that the body mass index theory devised by Quetelet is not enough.
    I found myself reading about Sheldon's theory of somatotypes. I consider that it was a probably useful theory in its time (1940) but now extremely limited. It divides the human body into three and considers that each of these types has a personality that is attached to it. I consider that this thought is not scientific at all and that it doesn't take into account different variables (which probably had not been studied at that time).
    I was also surprised by the calculations provided by this study, as I consider them very accurate with my lifestyle.
