When you sign up for one of my style programs, you’ll learn many things about your body architecture, including what is referred to as your “body type” or body shape. It’s a major factor in determining how to put together flattering outfit.
Much to my surprise, I found out that your body type can also help determine your nutritional needs and, as a result, help you develop an optimal nutrition program that addresses related health problems. This is big news as many of us jump into our 2012 New Year’s resolutions.
I met certified nutritionist Dawn Aubrey at a presentation hosted by Christine Tusa (co-star of my High Heel Fit & Fab video series) at Beets Cafe on West 5th Street. Dawn’s presentation opened my eyes to a whole new way of considering how body shape affects who we are and how we should eat.
Dawn outlined four nutritional profiles with personality traits based on your bone structure. Below is a brief glimpse into those profiles. You may be quick to judge which profile you are, but it’s really best to be measured first.
The next step is to find out what you can do to optimize your diet for your body type. Read the snippets below and call me at 512.217.9869 or email email@example.com for your nutritional questionnaire and get your resolution off to a great start. Afterall, you have to feel good to look good!
Para Profile: Clavicle and hip bones are same width apart and the woman (or man) gains weight evenly through her body, usually hourglass shape. She’s usually gluten sensitive but craves breads, tends to skip breakfast and needs lots of protein. Thyroid issues are common. You may know her as the life of the party 🙂
Estro/Testro Profile: Clavicle bones are smaller in width than hip bones, like a triangle. She loves ethnic foods, sauces, ice cream. Prone to hormonal imbalances causing PMS and uterine fibroids. She’s the one you talk to when times are tough and you need some TLC.
Supra Profile: Clavicle bones are wider than hip bones like an inverted triangle. She craves meat and salt. She tends to have joint aches/pains, back problems and adrenal stress but has great legs! These are go-getters who say it like it is and stand by their convictions.
Neuro Profile: Clavicle and hip bones are same width apart like a rectangle, tend to be wiry but overweight version looks soft and fluffy. She craves milk and cereals and tends to have sensitivities to both along with a weak immune system. She’s the consummate artist, maybe a bit shy, with a keen analytical mind.
