Hormonally Correct Eating For Building Muscle

When you break it down to basics, the biggest hurdle in peoples muscle building quest is there eating patterns. Now I am not talking about people who just eat junk food all the time. I’m talking about the people who eat well but just can’t take their body to the next level for one reason or another. These people have incorrectly been label as “hardgainers” when the truth of the matter is that they need to focus on hormonally correct eating patterns.

What I mean when I say hormonally correct eating patterns, is eating properly for your body type. There are three body types with individual patterns and characteristics.


Typical skinny

Thin limbs

Usually endurance athletes

Skinny arms and legs with a big stomach

Always either ripped or skinny

Once into their 30’s or 40’s they are skinny with a “new” fat stomach


-Athletic body

-Wide shoulders and skinny waist

-Pretty strong

-They look like they train

-Very good anabolic hormone signaling


-Very anabolic but can get both big and fat

-Usually have the hardest time losing fat

-Can build muscle quickly

-Usually the athlete who gets fat after he stops playing

You should begin to see which body type you are. Once you’ve figured this out, you now have to plan your nutrition according to your principles. You see anyone who tells you that the body is “not a textbook” should be the last person that you listen to. It’s also why I don’t agree with a person who says that you have to experiment until you find something that works for you.

While this might be true in fact. We know that each body type does better with specific supplements and protein, fat and carbohydrate ratios. I asked Dr.John Berardi about each individual type and here’s what he said before giving me the exact ratios that he uses for each body type.

“Whenever I interact with the new client I try and sort them out into one of the three types because the research is showing that each of those types has a characteristic hormonal profile. So you look at ectomorphs and you typically find they are dominant in thyroid hormones and sympathetic nervous system hormone so the fight or flight hormones. Epinephrine, nor epinephrine some people call it adrenalin nor adrenaline so these hormones are the high calorie expenditure, high fat burning, high energy burning hormones. So we typically find that is why ectomorphs are skinny like that. Because the thyroid and sympathetic nervous system dominant.”

That right there goes to show that the ectomorphs need to consume things slightly differently then the other types. While I wouldn’t go as far as to recommend metabolic typing diets I would say that more information is warranted before we just jump into a diet.

After 11:59 tonight you'll be paying a lot more money then the $47 that the Muscle Bible is going for now...

Don't delay another minute

There really is no risk at all in getting your hands on the heavily

discounted muscle building "steal" of the year.

Just look at what I did for this customer who asked for a


"After having some initial doubts about purchasing the

Muscle Bible, I decided to take the plunge and go for it.

However, due to financial circumstances and other

factors beyond my control, I had to make the decision

to return the product and e-mailed Jimmy the news.

Within the hour I had a response from Jimmy Smith himself,

who refunded the FULL purchase price of the package

and then some( he gave me more money than I paid, on purpose).

Needless to say I was floored. I've had a harder time

returning a pair of jeans!

Jimmy truly does keep his word,

so rest assured you can buy from him with confidence.

For those who can afford it, I would have absolutely

no reservations referring this product to someone

who is looking to really gain insight into the best

methods to pack on muscle!
