Nutrition Tip: Endomorph – Eating for Your Body Type

As we discussed in a previous post, everyone has a different body type. Today we’re talking more about endomorphs. Endomorphs generally have a larger frame and a slower metabolism. They often struggle with losing weight and tend to have to work harder than most when it comes to training.

If you are an endomorph, here are some tips that will help you reach your weight loss and training goals.

  • Calories – Being in a calorie deficit doesn’t mean you should starve yourself. Cutting too many calories can negatively affect your physical and mental health. Stick to a 400-700 calorie deficit.
  • Carbs – Avoid consuming starchy carbs. Instead, choose fibrous, whole-grain options. This includes brown rice, fruits, and leafy green vegetables.
  • Meal Composition – In major meals, try to include 1-2 palms of protein, 1-3 fists of vegetables, 0.5-1 cupped handfuls of starchy carbs, and a small source of healthy fats.
