Which body type can eat whatever they want and not get fat w/ no exercise. ? Cuz I wanna be that one. Right now, I'm not feeling right because my spirit is one body type and my body is another. It's awful! I'm not trolling. I'm totally serious.

Even more seriously. How does one exactly know what type they are if they're a combo of both? If you're an hourglass but then gain weight you're an apple. See what I'm saying. This body stuff is stupid .. People should burn Cosmo and be done with it. :p

Ectos don't gain fat as easy as endos, for example.

Your post just reminded me of something. When I was in college, one of our psych majors polled women on their shoulder width (narrow, average, or broad) and their perception of their weight.

It turned out that the ladies with more broad shoulders, even at thin and average weight, perceived themselves as heavier than the narrow shouldered ladies. And I mean certainly, if the two of them both wore the same sleeved articles of clothing, the broader shouldered woman will look wider.. clothing could even drape down to make the rest of her body look wider, too. So it made sense to me.

And despite the failed communication between deranged and myself, I do believe that whatever type you are, you can be at your lower healthy weight -- I'm just not going to pretend that an endomorph with a large frame is going to be able to get to the lowest weight that an ecto with a small frame could achieve.

There are also various medical issues and medications that can hinder ones ability to burn calories as effectively. So, when people start up with the "its as simple as calories in-calories out" they are mistaken. Insulin resistance for example, complicates the calories out mechanism. Cortisone shots will as well.

Lastly, on behalf of every average mom out there, I gotta say, I would be in the right to sue someone for all the psychological issues of not embracing Freddie Krugers face on my stomach. Tiger stripes my ass! I want to see every model be a size 6 minimum!! I want to see every male model with a little pudge on their belly. I want to see women over 40 with wrinkles being drooled over. I want to see a dudes balls hang low in porn! I want to see saggy boobs and bald heads but not both on the same gender :tongue:

that's want I want! Who else wants this!! Call every NFP out here and let's start another revolution against the industry!!

Being an ectomorph is fun that you can eat and not have to deal with getting fat but there are two downsides. Gaining muscle is also difficult for ectomorphs and gaining fat. Actually I just repeated the definition. But if you're like me an ectomorph but at the same time you don't have a giant appetite, then you might deal with problems of being underweight. My family criticizes me for being underweight (though according to BMI scales and the doctor himself, I am not underweight). I don't remember what it was called but it was about appetite and preferences, for example one type would prefer eating a few times a day and another got hungry very often. I think it was about metabolism. Like slow oxidizers and quick ones whatever it's called.

I don't know what kind of shoulders I have. :( My collar bone sticks out even when I've reached muffin top crash diet status. :/

Generally, an apple will gain her weight mostly in her tummy and upper arms. Lindsay Lohan really is a great example of a skinny apple. She is a very thin girl, but you can still see that her fat storage is in the upper body. She has very narrow hips and tiny legs.

An hourglass will gain it all over, but not as much in the waist -- so a larger hourglass is still going to look different from a large apple. The lady from mad men for example - shes still at a healthy weight, but I wouldn't call her skinny, and shes an hourglass.

And yes, finding one's body type can be tricky. I didn't realize that I was an inverted triangle until recently lol. I thought I was just "some weird hourglass with very strong shoulders and arms." lol XD

(And fuck cosmo.)

Yeah, I think larger breasts can happen across the board, but they're just less common in some types than others.

If one's measurements come up as smaller on top than bottom or vice versa, they're likely not an hourglass. I read an article a while back on celebrities whos figures look like hourglass, but don't have the measurements for it - I think angelina jolie was one of them.
yeah I realise how the measurements work, I should probably figure out my type one of these days...

Not sure if you've heard of this theory that is a little better IMO in helping understanding body type that's primarily focused on the hormones rather than what to dress (the presentation of type). Plus it's applicable for men as well. Most of men fall in the third I've found past the age of 50 when out of shape. Even if they don't drink beer. :p

I have a love hate thing I've got going. When I was very little I was cliche INFJ friends with (no lie here) 3 best friends. One was the girl who had a lazy eye. The other was obese. The other very foreign polish. I recall feeling fat but in pics I wasn't at all. The girl with the lazy eye told me once "my mom said that ugly girls grew up to be pretty and that pretty girls grew up to be ugly" (and considering her mom, she no doubt said that). I've always had a super weird relationship with my body. I had so much attention paid to me as a little girl and as a teenager for being pretty. And it seriously depressed me. Like, no one knows me!  lol! .. As an adult over the years, little by little, each year, I realize how absolutely ridiculous I am! And vain! Which is weird. Not serious vanity. Just that I notice every little imperfection because of years of having my attention brought to it. I am one of those people who fluctuates in weight. I build muscle easy and lose it easy but I have to eat less carb but that is what my body likes!  it's not fair! :p

when my mind is in "recovery" resolving it's own issues, I make fun of myself or the issue A LOT! So I really hope I'm not coming off as a jerk face. :( but if I joke that I've Freddy Kruger on my tummy and hips, and Ethiopian saggy boobs, I'll laugh and realize that my brain is full of shit! Because I'm no where near that severe. People tell me so. I've never had a guy NOT want me naked. So really. It's all in my head. That and I get scared letting men be first to be in control and if I relax and allow myself to notice the attention, I get a little anxious like I'm not safe but I know I am. And so goes the internal torment nightmare we call NK. :p

Not that extreme. I also have an inner emo. This is the part of myself that's a big baby. I do these things because then it detaches me from the parts of the psyche that need to be counseled / coached. I know this is weird. But honesty, the technique works. Name it, creates a detached in-between. I suppose you could say I have those tendencies. But I'm creepily self aware so no, not that extreme as I do the counter phobic thing 24/7 and face my fears as I'm afraid of being afraid. And not having needs met seriously blows. :p

BUT I could still get away with suing the industry on behalf of everyone who has the disorder. Like how people are not allowed to smoke indoors anymore. See .. See .. I think I'm on to something! :D ;)

I am an hourglass. I run, ride bike and eat almost entirely vegetarian. I am not a skinny runner, some women get that way, but it only compacted my thighs and made me curvier. I lost 5 pounds only, also. I figure this is where my body is supost to be. I used to be skinny, but I was never really a tiny small framed gal. I was uncomfortable with my body when I was younger, but now I feel sexy and happy with it. Women judge themselves too harshly.

yeah what's up with that. When I'm "on the wagon" working out and diligent about what I eat, I don't get skinny. It's kinda annoying when you're short. People my height are often 95 pounds. But when I'm at my thinnest, I'm 117 if I'm lucky. Otherwise, 120 which according to BMI for my height is overweight. Still think if all of woman kind everywhere got together to sue, we would totally win. Like million man march style demanding the industry reform their retarded ways. I vote we start a riot. :tongue:
