Why do we sometimes train a lot and diet even more difficult and still don’t get any results or even get negative results? Nutritionist Barbara Schmidt says it’s because all women’s bodies can be divided into four basic types, each with its own peculiarities.
Based on this classification, we put together a list of recommendations that will help you get the body of your dreams according to your build.
What Your Body Type Says About You
Delicate Type (Rectangular Figure)

Diet: Substantial breakfast and modest dinner; more carbs and fewer proteins.
Little to no milk, sweets, pastry, or raw foods.
Curvaceous Type (Pear-shaped Figure)

Time of exercise: early morning, late afternoon.
