Endomorph Body Types are often characterised with big bones, round face, large trunk and thighs and a naturally high degree of body fat, especially around the midsection. Endomorphs usually struggle to control their weight although it may simply mean more determination is needed for an endomorph to lose as much weight as a mesomorph.
Probably a poor description, but it's what I found. I assume most of you know what one is anyways.
I recently got into an argument (over the internet, I know I'm a dork) with someone. His stance was that there are certain people who are born "destined to be fat", and there is nothing they can do about it (endomorphs). I told him this is BS, and that anyone (barring certain diseases and physical handicaps; so any able-bodied person) can be in good shape if they put in the time. I understand it can be harder for some people, everyone has different genetics, but impossible to keep the weight off? I doubt it.
Now, my mother, who majored in Health in college, tells me endomorph isn't really a body type, but more of an excuse if you are overweight. I don't know what to think about that, really.
So I guess what I want you to tell me is
1) Are there really people "destined to be fat" who can do nothing about it?
2) Do endomorphs really exist? (I feel stupid asking, sorry) >_>
