Body Type Quiz from Yahoo!

August 27, 2011 § 6 Comments

While I was reading this article from Yahoo! about “Vanity Sizing” I came across this link on how to tell your body type. Here’s the link:

You have to answer some easy questions then voila! you have your body type. I took the test and here’s my result.

Your body shape is triangle. Your body type is primarily endomorph with some mesomorph tendencies.

Your Shape
Classically feminine, with shapely legs, a whittled waist, and a curvy bum.
Your Health
Triangles have higher levels of estrogen, which signals fertility. Wider hips may protect from heart disease and boost the chances of living longer. With your body shape, obesity increases your risk for memory loss and mental decline; staying trim as you age is important.
Your Beauty
Humans are hard-wired to find your figure attractive, from way back in caveman times. A triangle body shape, which stores fat in the hips and thighs, suggests that you can maintain a pregnancy and produce healthy children.
Fashion Tip: Add structure
Your chest and shoulders are small, so add volume to your upper half. This summer, try a boatneck shirt with horizontal stripes, or a wide scoop neck in bright jewel tones. On chilly evenings, go for a cropped jacket, or a cardigan with three-quarter sleeves.

You’re soft and feminine, reminiscent of the Renaissance’s most lauded ladies. Your metabolism might feel like your biggest foe, but try focusing on your favorite body part and doing strength-training exercises to highlight it. Most women are endomorphs, but as you build muscle and burn fat, you might see a stronger secondary, or even primary, body type emerge.
Nutrition Tip: Eat an energy-boosting breakfast
Aim for foods that will provide long-lasting energy. Start your day with a low-fat yogurt and fruit smoothie. Add coconut water instead of juice—sugar-sweetened drinks will make your energy spike and crash. Complex carbs are great for your body too. Try oatmeal or whole wheat toast with nut butter or scrambled egg whites for a healthy, hearty kick-off to your day
Exercise Tip: Love your legs.
Most women aim to increase muscle tone, but shy away from leggy workouts and focus on their abs instead. Think of it this way: Muscle is a fat-burning powerhouse, so the key to all-over tone is building strong legs, glutes, and lats—the biggest muscles in your body. Yoga and pilates work all three while improving balance and support

    favor”.I’m attempting to find things to enhance my site!I suppose its ok to use a few of your ideas!!

  • My result is:

    Your body shape is hourglass. Your body type is mesomorph.

    Your Shape
    You have the classic pinup figure—a feminine hourglass with a whittled waist and smooth contours.
    Your Health
    Shapely curves signal higher levels of estrogen, which promotes fertility. Wider hips protect from heart disease and boost the chances of living longer. An ample bust is also shown to boost health.

    Fashion Tip: Add structure
    You were born with the look that most strive to achieve, so let your shape shine. Opt for solid color fabrics with a bit of stretch that gently hug your body. Keep it clean and simple-pencil skirts, scoop necks, and waist belts are great summer choices.

    You’re muscular to the core, with a medium frame and little fat. When you gain weight, you can lose it pretty easily, and when you work out your challenge is to keep from getting too muscular. Your body is naturally toned, but exercising regularly will keep your heart and bones healthy.
    Nutrition Tip: Pack in protein
    You build muscle easily, so you want a protein-packed diet. Try lean meats like sautéed chicken over quinoa (a grain high in protein), or sliced turkey sandwiches with avocado, lettuce, and tomato on whole wheat bread. For vegetarian options, go for lentils over brown rice, tofu stir-fry, or black beans tossed in a Southwestern-style salad.

    Exercise Tip: Stretch your muscles
    You’re likely a natural athlete. You excel at strength training, but overdoing it can make your muscles too tight (a recipe for injury). Help your body relax with pilates and yoga—both great ways to get a balanced, total body workout. Tight muscles can make your shoulders look hunched, so you’ll even appear taller when your shoulders loosen up!
