    Does Dr Berg ever answer questions in the comments? The test said thzt i am adrenal but i take thyroid meds so maybe i am both.

    My body looks like Ovary type but when I did the body type quiz, the result is the Adrenal type. I kinda confuse. However, I think I have both types. Therefore, I think I need to exercise suits both types. Where Adrenal exercises are stretching, yoga and walking and Ovary is plyometric or full body workout that emphasizes the hips and legs.

    Does it mean people of adrenal type would never get muscular and lean at the same time? I am pretty sure you won't build muscle by just doing walking, yoga or stretching.

    I have low thyroid, but the quiz said I was adrenal… I'm going to stick with the adrenal plan because without knowing it, thats what I've been doing for the past few weeks and I've managed to lose some weight and an inch off my belly. I understand I could be derailing my success by weight training, but its a way that I actually DECREASE mental stress. I go to the gym, put on my headphones, and lift weight. I will modify what I've been doing by increasing the reps while keeping the weights low. I find that when I feel strong after lifting weights, my mental stress decreasing significantly. If I stop lifting for this reason, I feel that it would almost be counterproductive and increase my stress levels. We will see I guess…

    Is this video for people who are really fat? If I have A body type and barely any fat, and I must be toned for work, I suspect with walking and stretching and some yoga I'll not be really ripped. I do those already and they're good, but ever since I've been working out my music lessons with weights I've seen progress. When I did yoga and walking, I just got got more fat.

    if you're an Ovary type, go swimming. In 2 months I weight loss 15 kg I think it is like 30 pounds. Br Berg is right.

    I'm type A and I have noticed this as well but it sucks because I like hiking but it's difficult to find trails that don't stress my body too much with steep hills, stares, and climbing over rocks. Mentally I need it.  Should I just hike slower?

  • stefanie böke 1 month ago

    I did the body type test twice and it told me I'm the adrenal body type. But I'm pretty sure I'm the ovary body type, coz I absolutely look like in that picture, plus I have estrogen dominance symptoms :/

  • Donthese types change overtime? What if you are a Adrenal type now? Because ive always benefited from strength training and such…i think due to an exuberant amount of stress, depression and anxiety i am at an adrenal type. If I correct that, can I still do strength training. barre classes, Hit classes? I cant do yoga or stretching i find it boring and doesnt do anything for me to lower my stress

  • Kayleigh Wilson 1 month ago

    See my issue is, I have none of the symptoms of any of these nor do I think I look like these, I mean I will try both the adrenal and thyroid (at separate times) but I'm still not sure

  • Janus Bevins 1 month ago

  • mintym_ 1 month ago

    a tip for other adrenals out there: casual cycling (not the crazy heartbeat-through-the-roof-kind of one) in a nice environment in good weather doubles as stress management and just the right amount of excercise !

  • sugarcube700 1 month ago

    What if you're a combination of all

  • leah g 1 month ago
