    Can you judge the genetics of people based on their appearance and class them into 3 different categories ? Yeah sure do that, i don’t get the point but have fun.

    But everyone is bounded to the same laws of thermodynamics and biochemistry.

    take some responsibility, your own actions have a greater influence than you would like. newbies always thinks its 90% nature against 10% nuture, when its really not.
    its always either
    >i eat 1000kcal and browse IST all day, why am i a stick? i MUST be an ectomorph
    or
    >i eat 5000kcal and browse IST all day,
    why am i fat? i MUST be an endomorph

          How long did it take you to go from left pic to right pic?

            the left pic is ancient and i didnt start lifting the next day.
            the right pic is somewhere between 2.5 and 3 years lifting, starting from a similar base as shown on the left

    Depends what you mean by real. People exist who tick all the boxes of each category. Is that enough to say it's real? IMO to say it's real there's got to be some kind of force that influences people who have one trait to have others in that same camp for bodytype. But in reality having a slow metabolism, thick wrists, thick ankles, big hips, wide ribcage, wide shoulders, thick connective tissue, more fast twitch fibers - everything I just said are genetic traits which exist independently of each other, you can have some of these but not all or almost none or almost all or anything in between. Mesotypes are good descriptors for certain people but the average person doesn't neatly fit into a box most of the time

    Read the original book. It is mostly about psychology. The description of the ectomorph will make you suicidal.

      Yes the original study about psychology has been debunked. Nobody is denying that, yet the part about archetypal body shapes has been researched further and shown to be somewhat true.

      But instead of 3, you have 9

      Meso-meso
      Meso-ecto
      Meso-endo
      Ecto-ecto
      Ecto-meso
      Ecto-endo
      Endo-endo
      Endo-ecto
      Endo-meso

      Where most people have combinations of 1 to 2 somatypes. Depending on torso and limb length

        That wasn't my point, my point was the psychology was frighteningly accurate, especially for the ecto (virgin nerd) type

    Researchers know things aren’t real and still use them, they use known terms for shorthand

    Imagine not having the word ectomorph and having to describe a skinny guy in 2-3 sentence detail every time.

    Also body types are nominally real, but the theory that some store fat easier or don’t isn’t true, physiologically.

    They are real but not in a sense most people think. Its just genetics and frame making you look different.

    they're real because people are born with different frames and proportions. they don't really change shit though.
