4 Easy Tips for an Ecto-Meso Body Type

Although you exhibit some mesomorph traits, you’ll get better results if you stick closer to the guidelines for ectomorphs.

The most important factor in reaching your fitness goals is nutrition. And it doesn’t have to be super complicated!

1. Healthy Food Choices

The food you eat is the easiest change you can make to reach your fitness goals. Try to add more natural whole foods to your diet. And avoid processed or pre-packaged foods.

2. Proper Calorie Balance

Next, finding your personal calorie target gives you the most “bang for your buck”.

Often, ecto-mesos have a big appetite. And you probably feel like you eat a lot. In reality, you’re still not eating enough if you’re having issues gaining muscle!

Therefore, it’s important to find an accurate calorie target. And make sure you hit your target consistently.

3. Carbs + Protein

Third up is macronutrients – specifically carbs and protein.

Carbohydrates are your body’s easiest source of energy. And protein provides the building blocks for muscle.

When you combine ample carbs and protein you increase protein synthesis. And that’s a recipe for muscle gain.

4. Meal Schedule

Lastly, when you eat can affect whether you gain or lose muscle. Eating plenty of carbs and protein around your workout is most beneficial.

During the rest of the day you’ll still want to include protein. But you can substitute fat for carbs as needed.
