How to Eat and Workout for Mesomorph Body Types

Are you frustrated that you do not see the results you desire?

You might be training and eating for a different body type than you are. It’s important to understand your body type and learn the basics to reach your fitness goals.

What’s your type?

Different body types need different training methods and diet plans. There are three types of body: mesomorphs (endomorphs), ectomorphs (mesomorphs), and Most people have a combination of both body types. One is more dominant. This article will focus on the mesomorph body type.

Mesomorphs are naturally muscular and have a medium build. They also have a medium-sized bone structure. They have a well-shaped body with wide shoulders and narrow waists. Mesomorphs, the strongest of the three types, are best for bodybuilding because they can easily lose or gain weight.

Fitness Goals

Both male and female mesomorphs who want to build muscle can get a jumpstart genetically. Mesomorphs can gain weight and must focus on diet and a comprehensive training program to lean.

Although mesophorhs have a genetic tendency to build muscle, focusing on diet and cardio is important if you want to lose weight.


Because of their higher muscle mass, the calorie requirements of mesomorphs are slightly higher than those of other body types. Muscle is heavier than fat and therefore requires more calories to sustain. All body types require carbohydrates, protein, and fat. However, mesomorphs seem to prefer higher-protein diets. Our research has shown that mesomorphs respond well to meals with three-thirds of their food:

  • One-third protein
  • One-third of fruit or vegetable
  • One-third of whole grains (or healthy fats)
