Podcast #35: How to Lose Weight Based on Your Body Type
How to LOSE WEIGHT?!?!?
Yup, I totally went with a “click-baity” podcast title this week. Did it suck you right in? Like a tractor beam? 😉
Let’s be honest, though. The topic of weight loss will ALWAYS be an attention grabber for MANY of us no matter how many #BodyPositivity chicks we follow on instagram. Why? Because we all want to look our best. And for most, that means lean and svelte.
But as we all know, in order to actually shed your excess body fat, you’re more than likely going to have to tighten up your diet.
And you’re in luck because this week on the podcast, I am telling you EXACTLY how to calculate your calories in order to lose some weight. AND I’m also going to tell you exactly how much protein, fats and carbs you should be eating based on your very own, individual body type.
Sounds great, right?
Well folks, after recording this week’s episode, I drew the conclusion that although extremely informative and useful, weight loss calculations actually make for a REALLY FUCKING BORING audio experience.
And fine. It’s no surprise that determining your macros and calories is a boring topic no matter what format it’s delivered in. And that’s also why most people would rather just hire a coach who can do all of these boring calculations for them. Then hand them a program to follow that they hopefully actually follow.
And if that person is you, I may know a guy who can help with that…
Oh hiiiiiiiiiiii, Sam Shorkey!
You like how I did that, there? Non-aggressive (and pretty cute) shameless self-promo?
But anyway, despite my cuteness, if you don’t wanna hire me and you just want to know a quick weight loss formula or two, I definitely suggest listening to this week’s podcast. And in fact, I’ll even save you from listening to the whole episode and break down some of the formulas right here in this post.
Cute AND generous **sigh** 😉
BUT I still think you should listen to the whole episode. Because we still do provide all kinds of entertaining Shorkey sister banter in our lovable Canadian voices that you shouldn’t want to miss. And I’ve been told that our voices are quite soothing for listeners whilst doing cardio or taking the “loser cruiser” ride home from work.
Fine, I made that up. No one has ever called my voice “soothing.” Ever.
But most importantly, you should listen to the whole frickin’ episode because we help you uncover which body type you are! And the calculations won’t do you much good without knowing what body type is yours! So give it a listen, will ya?!
Man, this post has turned into THE most pathetic attempt at getting podcast plays EVER! I did, however, somehow turn it into a fantastic opportunity to promote my vegan coaching services!
Here are the BARE BONES version of the “body type specific” formulas as mentioned on this week’s podcast. That’s right, I’m ONLY giving you a little taste.
Baseline Calories for Mesomorphs: your bodyweight x 15.
Baseline Calories for Ectomorphs: your bodyweight x 16.5.
Baseline Calories for Endomorphs: your bodyweight x 13.5.
Protein Intake for Mesomorphs: 1 gram of protein per lb. of bodyweight
Protein Intake for Ectomorphs: 1.4 grams of protein per lb. of bodyweight
Protein Intake for Endomorphs: 1.2 grams of protein per lb. of bodyweight
Fat Intake for Mesomorphs: 0.3 grams of fat per lb. of bodyweight
Fat Intake for Ectomorphs: 0.6 grams of fat per lb. of bodyweight
Fat Intake for Endomorphs: 0.6 grams of fat per lb. of bodyweight
