Individualising your nutrition. The latest eating styles guaranteed to get you results!
Individualising nutrition is fast becoming the most popular way of eating...but does that really mean?
Being an Endomorph or a Mesomorph does not mean you are a Transformer – you are not related to Optimus Prime! What is does relate to is your body type and how to fuel your body type.
As we all know everyone comes in different shapes and sizes so realistically we should all be eating different types and amounts of food to suit our body types. To determine what we should be eating and how much, the first point of call is to gain proper understanding of our body type.
So how do we figure out what body type we have?
