Ecto/Meso/Endomorphs: Tall slender body types, ectomorphs, require warm soothing foods, i.e. popular comfort food category.
In-between types are predominantly one body type or another. These individuals, mesomorphs, should pay attention to seasonal shifts and avoid over eating.
Short, stocky body types, endomorphs, should avoid comfort foods, favor spicy varieties.
Mindfulness and moderation required at all meals.
