What Are the 4 Body Types

author avatar Dr. Eric Berg 08/31/2023

The adrenal body type is characterized by a sagging belly caused by fat accumulation influenced by the stress hormone cortisol. For effective weight management, reducing stress and prioritizing sufficient sleep is essential, along with incorporating a slightly higher protein intake and plenty of vegetables into the diet.

The thyroid body type typically shows weight distributed all over the body, and if diagnosed with a thyroid problem, it might be related to other underlying issues such as estrogen levels, liver and gallbladder functions, or adrenal health. Identifying the root cause and consuming foods that support the specific issue identified is essential.

The liver body type, more common in men but also observed in women, is characterized by a protruding belly or pot belly. Avoiding alcohol consumption before bedtime and opting for a diet with a smaller protein intake and an emphasis on vegetables is advisable for this body type.

Lastly, the ovary body type is identified by weight carried around the hips and below the belly button, often linked to estrogen dominance. Maintaining estrogen balance with the help of cruciferous vegetables and choosing hormone-free dairy and meat can be beneficial for this body type. Understanding and catering to these individual body types can aid in achieving optimal health and weight management.

Knowing your body type through a personalized test can provide valuable insights into your unique physiological characteristics, metabolism, and potential health challenges. By understanding your body type, you can make informed decisions about your nutrition, exercise routines, and lifestyle choices to optimize your overall well-being and achieve your health goals more effectively.
