    Still a fun theory to toy with, but I imagine a lot of highly specific, genetically based factors would still affect how someone gains/loses muscle or fat. Like someone with ectomorph characteristics may assume eating more before bed will help prevent them from losing muscle through the night, but they might just become obese instead, because their metabolism wasn't particularly any faster than the others, to begin with.

    I'm sure some of the basic framing of the theory might have some utility, though. Long as people pay attention to how their bodies truly are, vs how they expect them to be, based on misconceptions around their own 'type.' Ha, this sounds familiar.
    I kinda see what you're saying but I think it's just a general framework kinda of like how typology is in a way. I find the descriptions fit me well because I do indeed gain fat easily if i just sit on my ass. I find cardio helps alot for me and I tend to gain muscle rather easily if I work out.

    @bold- haha yeah, that's why I said "this sounds familiar."

    Overall, we're probably on or near the same page, actually; just a matter of semantics.

    It's hard to say what mesomorph would be for women since none of us really gain muscle bulk "easily". Am I a mesomorph because I have muscular legs without working out and a fairly sturdy frame, endomorph because I could stand to lose 10 lbs of stomach fat (in between 3 and 4 on the chart linked above), ectomorph because I have an insane appetite and eat more food than most 6'+ men I know without my weight increasing? I have no idea.

    If pressed I'd probably say mesomorph, but I don't know if there's much validity to dividing people into those 3 groups in the first place.

    I thought "pure" female mesomorphs tended to be the stereotypical "hourglass" with balanced body proportions.

    Uber-ectomorph. It has always been very difficult for me to put on weight, but incredibly easy to lose it.

    Mesomorph. I've been told I "don't take advantage of my build" by multiple people, which is true.


    Working on it!

    It's more just about how the weight in your body is distributed you can be overweight in all 3 categories technically.
