What is Your Body Type?

I'm sure all of you know at least a skinny person who seems to eat a lot but not gain any weight. I know I do.  You may wonder how is this possible.  Is there a black hole in their stomach?  Does their body not process calories?  Are they human?

Well, I found an article online that can help explain some of this.  The article, which is shown below, talks about the three main body types people have.  They are: ectomorph, mesomorph, and endomorph. 


The skinny person I was talking about in the first paragraph is most likely an ectomorph.  An ectomorph is a person who finds it very hard to gain weight.  Typical traits of an ectomorph include fast metabolism, small shoulders, flat chest, and lean muscle mass.
