How to Eat for Ectomorph Body Type…..Tall & Slender

Ectomorphs are the body type that is the most resistant to weight gain due to a fast metabolism. In other words, ectomorphs are often able to overeat, while gaining little or even no weight.

This body type is mainly characterized by it’s lack of mass, i.e. ectomorphs tend to have little body fat, are only lightly muscled and have a small frame (and joints). Because they have little fat, bone and

muscle, ectomorphs naturally weigh less.This lack of mass also means that female ectomorphs tend to have a more linear body shape.

Ectomorph Eating Plan: Basic Paleo Diet low fat/ high carb/ high protein

This Diet is essential for an Ectomorph to grow. If you don’t pay attention to your diet I can almost guarantee you will hardly gain any weight. The main goal of this diet is to gain some muscle.

Eat Slow Absorbing Things: Eating slow absorbing carbs and proteins is important to gaining muscle. First of all fat gain isn’t the issue so I’m not even going to touch base on it, but aside from that eating fast absorbing carbs and protein all the time will leave your body depleted of nutrients since an Ectomorph metabolizes things fast.
