Our body types are influenced by our metabolism. The way the body metabolises food determines the spots where you are most likely to put on weight, your energy patterns and your food cravings. Knowing your body type will help you understand your metabolism better and develop strategies to keep your weight down.
Body type is determined by the dominant gland in your body. Women can be thyroid types, adrenal types, gonadal types or pituitary types, while men have only three body types – thyroid, adrenal or pituitary – because the adrenal and gonadal types are combined for them.
But what exactly is the connection between body types and food cravings? The answer lies in your dominant gland, which relies on certain foods for energy boosts.
