|CONSTITUTION||“Child-like” body with small bones, not quite developed muscles and head that seems out of proportion with the rest of the body|
|FAT LOCALIZATION||Stores subcutaneous fat everywhere equally, but can have a particular accumulation around the knees|
|DIETARY PREFERENCES||Dairy products and sweets|
|ENERGY LEVEL||Cold, early riser with a lack of energy in the evening|
|PERSONALITY||Brainy and smart, tends to be discreet|
|PREDOMINANT GLAND||Pituitary gland|
|PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTIC||not athletic and uncoordinated|
|GENDER||More frequent in men, it is however the rarest morphotype, found in about 5% of the population|
The overweight hypomixed individual presents a generalized excess of weight, like a “fat kid”, and doesn’t have a toned appearance, with sloping shoulders.
The hypomixed individual on his/her target weight has a more detailed body but still maintains relatively undeveloped shoulders and chest and the “child-like” appearance.
The other subtype of the mixed biotype is the hypomixed. The classic mixed individual (hypermixed), due to an unbalanced diet with excessive carbohydrates, eventually starts suffering from hypothyroidism as the thyroid becomes exhausted and reduces GH secretion from the pituitary gland. The hypomixed individual, however, is already a weak GH producer by nature (and also a weak producer of TSH-ACTH-LH, hence also of thyroid hormones, cortisol and sex hormones) and this results in typical somatic features such as an angelic face, without the square jaw which is typical of the individual who produce high levels of GH, sloping shoulders, small torso and fat distributed on the whole body like the fat of an infant and, where there is cellulite, this is mostly localized on the knees (indicating a deficit of GH).When we associate this predisposition with a diet rich in dairy products and carbohydrates (foods that slow down the pituitary functionality for producing GH which tends to increase the production of prolactin, which is an inhibitor of GH and sex hormones) the result is an unavoidable weight gain. This gain is distributed over the whole body because it does not depend on the imbalance of the sexual hormones, these being the hormones that mainly orientate the fat distribution on the upper or lower part of the body.
