What your body type can teach you about fitness & weight loss

Look up “body types” in any search engine and you’ll be bombarded with pages of articles describing your supposed “correct” body shape. Women’s bodies are often categorized into fruit and utensil shapes, which can be both amusing and confusing. Are you a spoon or a fork? Apple or banana? How can anyone resemble a banana? Luckily, there are three body types that can provide a more clear representation of our appearance, focusing less on the overall shape and more on general body fat. They go by the names ectomorph, mesomorph and endomorph, and are body types characterized by fat and muscle distribution.
