Fellow One Research Participant Alejandra Arteaga Bio Summary – Body Type Two (BT2)


I have studied The Four Body Types and I believe I am a Body Type Two (BT2). Obesity has been a serious problem in my life. My obesity problems started in my life between age 11 and age 15. I was at my heaviest weight when I reached 222 pounds at age 21. The most weight I ever lost was 31 pounds when I was 22. I have not been successful at keeping all that weight off to date. I gained back 5 of those pounds in a span of 1 month(s). My ride on the obesity weight gain & loss management roller coaster ride has been moderately severe.

If/when I put fat weight on my body, it is most likely that I will put the fat weight on in relation to: upper leg/inner thighs, upper leg/outer thighs, lower midriff/waist/hips, midriff/abdomen/belly, upper chest/pectoral/breast, inner upper arms/under arms, lower side trunk/love handles, neck, as accurately as I can figure.

Upon careful examination of my spine, vertebra(e) (posture), and muscle/muscle mass, I am confident that the following vertebra(e) in my body are underdeveloped if not undeveloped: cervical 1, cervical 2, thoracic 12, lumbar 1, lumbar 2, lumbar 3, lumbar 4, lumbar 5, as best I can surmise. I am quite sure my body does not look identical to a Body Type One (BT1) with all muscles developed & defined. My body has not always had the fully developed BT1 classic arch, dimples, vertebrae (posture), and muscle mass. I am certain I do not have the fully developed BT1 classic arch and dimples, which strengthens my belief I'm not a BT1.

What Does My Body Type Two (BT2) Mean?


Life is all about balance. Unbalance allows a human being to truly understand balance by recognizing, honestly, what their unbalances truly are. All be it some more than others, all human beings are unbalanced physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, at least to some extent. But most human beings are very unbalanced and unhealthy. The more unbalanced the body type (BT4 is the most unbalanced body type), the more physical work the specific individual person has to do to bring their human body into a state of true physical balance (BT1).

 

Body Type One (BT1): Physically balanced (Anatomy Standard).

*Fully developed vertebrae, spinal extension (posture), and muscle.
*33 out of 33 Vertebrae Developed and Extended, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (0 Vertebrae Undeveloped/Underdeveloped)
*Very Low to Low probabilities of experiencing obesity in the short and long-terms.
*High tendencies to be symmetrical and attractive.
*Mental (mind), emotional (energy in motion), and spiritual (soul/soul energy/star power/IT Factor) balance matters equally as much as physical (body/genetics/DNA) balance.

Body Type Two (BT2): Less Physically Balanced.

*Mostly developed vertebrae, spinal extension (posture), and muscle.
*32 to 22 out of 33 Vertebrae Developed and Extended, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (1-8 Vertebrae Undeveloped/Underdeveloped)
*Low to Medium probabilities of experiencing obesity in the short and long-terms.
*Moderate tendencies to be symmetrical and attractive.
*Mental (mind), emotional (energy in motion), and spiritual (soul/soul energy/star power/IT Factor) balance matters equally as much if not more (to make up for physical unbalances) while the BT2 person is achieving to physical (body/genes/DNA) balance.

 

Body Type Three (BT3): More Physically Unbalanced.

*Moderate to mostly undeveloped vertebrae, spinal extension (posture), and muscle.
*21 to 11 out of 33 Vertebrae Developed and Extended, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (9-17 Vertebrae Undeveloped/Underdeveloped)
*Medium to High probabilities of experiencing obesity in the short and long-terms.
*Moderate tendencies to be asymmetrical and unattractive.
*Mental (mind), emotional (energy in motion), and spiritual (soul/soul energy/star power/IT Factor) balance matters even more (to make up for physical unbalances) while the BT3 person is achieving to physical (body/genetics/DNA) balance.

Body Type Four (BT4): Mostly to Fully Physically Unbalanced.

*Mostly to completely undeveloped vertebrae, spinal extension (posture), and muscle.
*10 to 0 out of 33 Vertebrae Developed and Extended, relative to the 24 Moveable & Two Fixed Bones (18-26 Vertebrae Undeveloped/Underdeveloped)
*High to Very High probabilities of experiencing obesity in the short and long-terms.
*High tendencies to be asymmetrical and unattractive.
*Mental (mind), emotional (energy in motion), and spiritual (soul/soul energy/star power/IT Factor) balance matters even that much more (to make up for physical unbalances) while the BT4 person is achieving to physical (body/genes/DNA) balance.

  1. Hello Alejandra:

    Thank you for your Fellow One Research Participant, The Four Body Types’ Free Body Type Shape Quiz Calculator submission.

    1) I think you have properly identified your body as a Body Type Two including your undeveloped/underdeveloped cervical 1, cervical 2, lumbar 1, lumbar 2, lumbar 3, lumbar 4, lumbar 5 — although I would say from your full back photo and side angle photo that the thoracic 12 is probably underdeveloped as well – VIDEO: http://recordit.co/qmUIYKcj2W
    On a scale of 1-10, being 100% certain, how certain are your that you thoracic 12 vertebrae is fully developed?

    2) On a scale of 1-10, being 100% certain, how certain are you that your obesity problems are solely due to diet?
    On a scale of 1-10, being 100% certain, how certain are you that your obesity problems are solely due to exercise?
    On a scale of 1-10, being 100% certain, how certain are you that your obesity problems are solely due to lifestyle?
    On a scale of 1-10, being 100% certain, how certain are you that your obesity problems are solely due to body type (genetics)?

    Please confirm the accuracy of the above post.

    1. Hi Gnosis Gnostic,

      Thank you so much for your feedback. This experience has allowed me to take a time and reflex about my body and what I’m doing to it. Regarding my thoracic 12 vertebra, I’m not that certain anymore that it is fully developed after what you’ve highlighted. I’ve checked myself again and, on a scale of 1 to 10, I would say I’m 2 to 3 certain.

      As for section #2, it goes as follow:
      a) 8
      b) 6
      c) 10
      d) 7

      I also confirm the accuracy of the above post 🙂

      1. Hi, I was also wondering about how can I permanently lose weight? I’ve been constantly fighting with the weight rollercoaster, and the highest weight loss I could get was 31 pounds in 6 months. I would really like to get to weight around 140 pounds, as per doctor’s recommendation😅

        1. That is tricky. To permanently lose the weight and keep it off means you have to build the muscle/muscle mass relative to your under/undeveloped vertebrae. As it appears now, those seem to be the cervical 1, cervical 2, thoracic 12, lumbar 1, lumbar 2, lumbar 3, lumbar 4, lumbar 5 — assuming the assessment made in the post above via data and pictures (which can be hard with lighting and shadows, etc.) is accurate. Yoga is a good place to start to get to know your spine/posture and vertebrae. The key is building the muscle right. That is done using gravity (isometrics) so that the muscles are built against that gravity, which is always working against those muscles. If you can properly figure out how to incorporate weightlifting and calisthenics as well, even better. Fellow One Research is currently working on a Restructuring Process, but it is not available to the masses yet (and, due to its complexity, may be at least a few more years away)

          Remember, metabolism and muscle go hand-in-hand. Diet, exercise, and lifestyle are important, but body type matters as well; meaning vertebrae, posture/spinal extension, and muscle/muscle mass, no less. Balance is the key.

          If you just use machines or mechanical/rote repetition resistance exercises, that can work somewhat to build muscle to help keep weight in check, especially in the short-term. However, if it is not done right, it can cause more unbalance in your body which can lead to further unwanted issues. Moreover, in the long-term, once you stop doing the rote/mechanical exercises, the muscle will gradually fade away and you will find yourself back on the obesity roller coaster ride once more.

          I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.

          1. Hi, thanks so much for providing this information. I do consider I need to change my current daily routine, as to have more time to take care of myself and give proper attention to lose weight and build muscle. Thanks to this test, I was able to discover so much more about my body and has encouraged me to take action. It’s really eye-opening and refreshing to my soul.
