Nutrition Tip: Mesomorph – Eating for Your Body Type

We’ve talked about two of the three body types, endomorphs and ectomorphs. This leaves us with the final body type. Mesomorphs tend to have a naturally athletic, medium-sized build. It tends to be easier for them to put on muscle mass without adding much body fat.

If you’re a mesomorph, we have some tips to help you optimize your training and improve your physique.

  • Balanced Meals – Even though mesomorphs have an easier time putting on muscle mass than others, they still need to consume balanced meals throughout the day.
  • Training – If you’re training, eat a high carb and protein snack before and after your workout session.
  • Food Variety – When choosing what foods to eat, make sure you have a variety of colors and textures to get the most nutrients out of your meals. Aim for about 1-2 palms of protein, 1-2 fists of vegetables, 1-2 cups of fruit, and a good source of healthy fats.
