About 8 years ago i got into computing, spent basically all of that time on computers. I always made excuses to get out of gym class and started smoking 4 years ago. I was never a big eater, a sandwich or small meal would all i have to eat for a day and that was fine for me.
Now by looking at my body, i'm an Ectomorph but then it got me thinking.. If i was physically active throughout these years and ate the correct amount then my body would look like a Mesomorph, and if i ate a lot but stayed on my computer i would look like an Endomorph. By my lifestyle i'd think no matter what body type you would have naturally grown into, i think it's inevitable to stay skinny and weak when i never exercised or ate?
So does your physical appearance decide body type, or does your matabolism?
I just ask this because i quit smoking 1 month ago, started working out 2 weeks ago and completely changed my diet this week. Even though i'm 5'8 147lb i've got quite a clean diet made for cutting, i'd like to see what muscle i do have and how easy it is to lose weight before bulking. That being said almost everyone recommends bulking first for Ectomorph...
Hope you can help me understand, thanks.
