|What body type are you?|
You're all muscles. You excel at most sports that you play and don't have a problem running a race or lifting some weights. Sports you would be good at are baseball, basketball, football, soccer, jogging, swimming, boxing, hockey, wrestling, and weightlifting. You'll probably tend to favor sports that require a combination of strength, endurance, speed and power. Therefore you're most likely to play football, wrestle, box, weight lift or hockey.

Now for the fun part. Trying to figure out a diet that is best for me. I have done many quiz's telling me what type of body I have. So I have really done some looking around to find this answer. Before I get into what I have found, Let me discuss with you the importance of finding out what your body type is. Well, you have heard of the saying no diets are the same, and that not every diet works for every person. This is true for one main reason. The different body Types. Some diets where designed around people who have one specific kind of body type while others are more helpful with someone of a different type. What helps an Endomorph may not work or an Ectomorph. Below are the descriptions of the 3 body types found at bodybuilder.com
An Endomorph's biggest concern should be the losing of fat and adopting a lifestyle that keeps it off. Strength training should be done to get a better muscle to fat ratio and therefore improve metabolism. Use moderate weights at a fast training pace (very little rest between sets and exercises). You should lower your calorie intake (but not try to starve yourself) and should eat frequent but small meals. Sugars, sweets and junk food should be eliminated from your diet. Engage daily in some activity like brisk walking, biking, etc., and try to increase the amount of time you spend each week.
A Mesomorph has a naturally fit body but to maintain it or improve it they should exercise and diet correctly for their type. Strength training can be done more often and for longer sessions then would be good for an Ectomorph, but you must still be careful not to overdo it. You should train with moderate to heavy weighs and at a moderate pace, not resting too long between sets. You will find you gain muscle quite easy (some women and even men might not want to get too bulky, but this won't happen suddenly. When you are happy with your muscle size simply train to maintain it). Stick to a good healthy diet to keep you lean and muscular, and watch for any slow creeping fat gains. Engage in and enjoy aerobic activities, sports, etc. but do not overdo.
Ectomorphs should concentrate on gaining weight in the form of good lean muscle tissue (some women that are too thin may also want to put on a little fat to look more feminine). Weight training should be done but not too often or for too long each session. Weight should be fairly heavy and workout pace slower (longer rest periods between sets). Diet should be high in calories (good quality food not junk) and you should eat more then you're used to and often. Aerobic and other activities (sports, dancing, etc.) should be kept to a minimum, at least until you are happy with your weight and looks.

Now for the goody part. Which meal plan I have found to work better for my body type. Let me tell ya, this was no easy task. Especially when a few of them told me to stick with sweet, sugary snacks. I was like ummm NO! Then looked at other places. I found these 2 articles very interesting and helpful.
