Where is my hardbody?

Endo/meso

After taking a few tests and doing a bunch of reading, I suppose I'm an Endomorph/Mesomorph combination body type. Test results:

 

Your body is between an EndoMorph and a Mesomorph. Choose a middle
approach between the follow recommendations.


Endomorph: An Endomorph's biggest concern should be the losing of fat and
adopting a lifestyle that keeps it off. Strength training should be done to get a
better muscle to fat ratio and therefore improve metabolism. Use moderate
weights at a fast training pace (very little rest between sets and exercises). You
should lower your calorie intake (but not try to starve yourself) and should eat
frequent but small meals. Sugars, sweets and junk food should be eliminated from
your diet. Engage daily in some activity like brisk walking, biking, etc., and try to
increase the amount of time you spend each week.


Mesomorph: Mesomorphs have a naturally fit body but to maintain it or improve
it you should exercise and diet correctly for your type. Strength training can be
done more often and for longer sessions then would be good for an Ectomorph,
but you must still be careful not to overdo it. You should train with moderate to
heavy weighs and at a moderate pace, not resting too long between sets. You will
find you gain muscle quite easy (some women and even men might not want to get
too bulky, but this won't happen suddenly. When you are happy with your muscle
size simply train to maintain it). Stick to a good healthy diet to keep you lean and
muscular, and watch for any slow creeping fat gains. Engage in and enjoy aerobic
activities, sports, etc. but do not overdo.

On a women's exercise site. I'm also considered a Hour Glass:

The shape: Curvaceous like Beyoncé or Scarlett Johannson, woman with curvy body types are balanced beauties who fill out a bikini top and bottom. When they gain weight, it tends to be all over. Like pears with larger chests, they have the curves, but what they usually lack is all-over muscle tone.(from Women's Health Mag)
