Female Body Types Explained: How to Go From Endomorph to Hourglass | Nutrition Fit



Endomorph women are usually short with soft, round bodies. Blessed with thick arms and strong legs, endomorphs take to leg exercises like the squat naturally. Endomorph women who want to get an hourglass figure find their bodies difficult to enhance and maintain because they gain fat very easily.

Achieving an hourglass body is a matter of increasing metabolic rate. As the human body’s appearance is approximately 30% exercise and 70% diet, endomorph women must adhere to strict nutritional habits to control their weight. Every calorie must be carefully scrutinized to ensure it’s dense in nutrients that support their desire to maintain a banging body.

“From a metabolic perspective, the endomorph body type sometimes has varying degrees of carbohydrate sensitivity and insulin resistance,” says fitness expert Tom Venuto. “If someone is metabolically carbohydrate intolerant due to a genetic tendency, then high carbohydrate diets are not the preferred choice for fat loss goals as they stimulate excess secretion of insulin and glucose will be partitioned into the fat cells.”

To shed unnecessary weight, as an endomorph you must immediately cut processed and refined carbs from your diet – especially white sugars and flours. A baseline example of a moderate diet for your body type is 40 percent protein, 30 percent carbs, 30 percent fat. High protein intake is vital to an endomorph’s nutrition, so eating plans like the Primal Blueprint serve as ideal potential eating plans for endomorphs.

Nutritional compliance is key for endomorphs that want to get a small waist. While other body types can stray from their diets 20 percent of the time, expect to stick to your diet 90 percent of the time in order to achieve – and maintain – results.

What about fitness? How should an endomorph beauty train her body for results? Endomorph women with hourglass figures tend to find it easy to put on weight. Unfortunately, most of this weight is fat that has to be controlled through weight training and cardio exercise. Weight training with products such as kettlebells will supply a 2 in 1 cardio and exercise workout that not only burns calories during exercise (up to 1200 calories per hour), but transforms your body into a fat-burning furnace throughout the day. Another upside of kettlebells is that certain exercises with them, like swings and deadlifts, can help you build a bigger, perkier butt.

Getting an hourglass figure as an endomorph may feel impossible, however out of all the body types, you’ve probably got the strongest chance of getting and maintaining your Coke bottle once you achieve it. Many endomorphs have natural hourglass potential, and despite the stricter exercise and diet requirements, getting a smaller waist comes effortlessly once you maintain your lifestyle habits.
