    I have very wide shoulders, extremely obvious belly and just normal hips. I should be type 1. Altrough relatively unhealthy and represented by a woman in the video, I consider that type the most mascuiline. And since I am a man, I am glad of my body proportions.

    So, can I deduct this? :
    1 – fat man or old woman
    2 – slim man
    3 – attractive young woman
    4 – relatively unattractive young woman

    Are there type 3 or 4 men? Or young women of type 1 or 2?

    I am lean and muscular. This is because I don't sit on the couch all day eating potato chips. You are what you eat and what you do. Period.

    I am puzzled by your statement that thyroid problems are rare. The rarity is finding a dr who knows what they are looking at when they see it, how to test for it and how to best treat it. I have had Hashimoto's for over 20 years and I've never looked like the last type, more like a blend of #1 and #3. I am in total agreement that people with thyroid issues gain weight a certain way, I can pick out a person with it in a grocery store on any given day. The last body is more like a person who has gone undiagnosed or undertreated with replacement long enough to experience myxedema. Which means it could've and should've been diagnosed by a knowledgeable dr a long time ago.

    I don't fit into any of these categories. I tried to do the test, but honestly could not answer anything. I put on weight when given steroids as an adolescent to shrink a benign brain tumor. I couldn't lose it for five years, then eventually lost it through anorexia. Exercise curtailed that, but I've taken care to stay slim since then. I have a host of health problems now, but will have to guess what body type I really am to work on them :/

    I am a cross between the last two, very big in the thighs but also the bellie. Already had my thyroid checked and that isn't an issue. Oh, and I am 53 years old . I have no idea why I am just now gaining all this weight.

  • Google Gay Frogs 3 months ago

    I think I'm all the body types. I am pear shaped but I have known issues with pretty much every system in my body. So when I go to take the quiz I would have multiple answers for some of the questions. Like the pain, sleep and symptoms questions…I have all of them.

    Please tell me which I am. I used to be size 6 to 8 then had kids. Now i have fat thighs, but thinner calves and started recently to get arm fat and my little belly is slowly growing. My belly is low but goes across. I have big butt. My thryoid tests well, but liver is testing as fatty, despite good diet and no alcohol I would greatly appreciate your advice.
