Lose Weight for Your Body Type & Keep It Off

Don't let anyone tell you size doesn't matter!

Pretending that you're ok with your weight and what you see in the mirror doesn't bother you.

I was so tired of slow fat loss or sometimes NO weight loss at all that I really wanted to give up. Did I really need to lose the weight? I kept telling myself "I wasn't THAT overweight so my size really doesn't matter." Well it does matter to me. 

And I'm sure it matters to you too...

Losing weight after 40 is no easy task. In fact, it's one of the hardest things I have to do. I've never been seriously overweight. I've always maintained my weight by exercising and kinda watching what I ate.  I didn't pay a lot of attention to my diet. I only worked out because I enjoyed it.  But everything seemed to change after I turned 40.  I packed on a few pounds but nothing alarming. I just continued to workout every now and again, eat my normal diet without attention to how many carbs I consumed each day or what types of foods I ate as well. 

 

After having a baby at 41,  I gained baby weight and lost most of it but I never returned to my pre pregnancy size. After that I started to focus on losing the weight just so I could wear all of my size 8 clothes in my closet. After that I realized that it was truly a struggle for me to lose the weight which was really only about 10lbs and to this day I have struggled on and off throughout my 40's to lose 10 - 15 lbs.  Today, at age 48, I still have not reached my goals because I have gained the weight back on a several occasions.  Some weeks I'm successful and I lose a few pounds and when I stop focusing on my diet and having more cheat days than normal,  I notice that the weight creeps back on which can be discouraging.  

 

So I decided to do some research and realized that hormonal imbalance and my body type was contributing to my many failures.  I was so focused on making sure I naturally balanced my hormones by eating a healthy diet which included a healthy balance of proteins, carbs (a little more carbs than protein) and fats that I didn't realize that it was causing me to either not lose weight as quickly as I hoped or gain weight when I wasn't consistently exercising.

 

Have you ever heard of an Endomorph Body Type? Well, that's my body type.  Knowing this helped me to focus on certain foods and decrease other foods I was eating. If I want to be successful, I had to pay attention to my diet and ensure that I continue to workout on a regular basis.  Doing this consistently has not been easy but it was something I had to do. So if you find that you're an Endomorph body type like me then you're gonna have to put in the work and figure out what works for you. It's going to take some trial and error and will be somewhat frustrating but in the end you will get results. The good thing is you'll lose weight and keep it off which is the ultimate goal. But if you do gain a few pounds here and there you will know exactly what to do to lose it again. Endomorphs have to be more conscience of what they put into their bodies to avoid unnecessary weight gain. Carbs are really not your best friend but you can still eat them you just have to eat the "right" ones. Keep reading below to learn more about each body type and request the plan that closely matches your body type.

What Are Body Types?

Which Body Type Are Your?

Which Body Type Are Your?

The body type concept was introduced in the 1940's by William Sheldon. He determined that humans could be characterized by three body types - Endomorph, Ectomorph and Mesomorph. This theory took into account that not everyone would easily fit into one category and may be described by two of the three body types. However, this characterization is a great start for helping you to determine your body type and how to eat and train for your specific body type.

I'm an Endomorph!

 

Personally, I found that knowing my body type has been extremely useful in helping me to understand why losing weight was so difficult especially getting rid of belly fat.  I realized that other factors such as my age and my hormonal health played a role but understanding the body type concept and applying it to my situation helped me tremendously in trying to lose weight after 40. I totally understood why it was such a struggle for me. After carefully researching the body types, I realized that I closely resembled the characteristics of the Endomorph body type. It perfectly described me and my personal situation. Knowing that I am an Endomorph and adjusting my training to include more resistance training like P90X and ChaLEAN Extreme as well as high intensity cardio like Insanity and tweaking my diet, I saw great results in less than a month. I saw belly fat disappear and more definition in my abs.  Also strength training workouts that include compound movements like in 21 Day Fix Extreme  and ChaLEAN Extreme that work more than one muscle group at a time are the best exercises for Endomorphs. Although I was able to lose weight as depicted in my before and after photo, I also gained it back as shown here as well after I stopped working out due to knee surgery.
