The mesomorph is the most fortunate of body types when it comes to diet and fitness. No other body type responds to exercise and a good diet as well as the mesomorph; they lose weight quickly, gain muscle quickly and are able to include most types of food into their diet without adversely affecting their training results. The mesomorph is truly a lucky person.
How then do you know if you are a mesomorph? Well the first clues have already been given. If you know that you lose weight quickly following exercise you are on your way to being able to claim to be a mesomorph. Yet, besides this rough guide, the only real way to assert your claim is to have a full physical analysis conducted by a sports scientist, trainer or physiologist. These professionals will, through a series of measurements of bone size, muscle mass, fat levels and metabolic rate, be able to determine your exact body shape. The mesomorph is the most athletic of the three types, though it is true to say that everybody has aspects of each type within their overall physical make-up.
Ensure your diet is appropriate for your physical needs is the first stage of any exercise and diet plan. A mesomorph diet for training success will contain plenty of protein and carbohydrate to ensure that you have the energy and amino acids required for an active lifestyle. It is better to eat small amounts of food several times a day that it is to eat three large meals. The act of regularly grazing on smaller amounts helps to maintain a steadier release of sugars into the blood stream and is therefore beneficial for all-round health and well being. Equally, it is thought that mesomorphs should eat on average 1.5 grams of protein for every pound of body weight to ensure that they have a proper balance of nutrients and amino acids. Vegetarians should ensure that they include each of the amino acids in their meals by selecting complete proteins or by including two or more sources that can contribute to the full compliment. Complete proteins can be found in eggs, soya beans and avocados, quinoa, spirulina and buckwheat.
