Marc Nelson Fellow One Research lead scientific researcher, appeared on the Infusion Health Podcast with hosts Rachel and Cris to discuss Body Type Science (The Four Body Types) including BMI and BMR.  Most people do not realize that the popular endomorph, ectomorph, and mesomorph somatotype body types are unscientific, arbitrary, subjective, baseless nonsense, just like the hormone body types as well as the Kibbe, triangle, 10 body types, etc. The conversation focused on clarifying the current mainstream science and medical doctor’s body type standards, which are:

  1. Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1)found in any scientifically approved human body anatomy book. This first standard is inaccurate because it does not recognize that it is a scientific/genetic fact that any part of the human body can be underdeveloped to whatever degree, nor does it give credence to any form of skinny fat.
  2. Body Mass Index (BMI) is the second standard. It is inaccurate because it does not take into account skinny fat or the possibility of excess muscle mass, which can put one into the overweight or obese column of their BMI weight scale but they are not overweight or obese.
  3. Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the third standard. It is not accurate as it does not calculate skinny fat into the Standard Mifflin St Jeor Equation and Harris-Benedict Equation for activity, yet science recognizes that one pound of muscle mass burns six calories daily but one pound of fat/skinny fat only burns two to three calories daily, which directly, negatively affects metabolism
