Many years ago, my husband learned some information about the four body types, which was a lot of fun. We figured out what type we each were and then he started really observing people and what body type everybody he knows is.
He’s really good at it being able to tell, and he also noticed a connection with personality characteristics from the color code for each type as well. He’s even got it down to a science of what “personality color” people are and what “personality color” they tend to marry (Red, Yellow, White, Blue)
Dr. Abravanel is the one who came up with the four body types; adrenal, gonad, pituitary, and thyroid. Click here to see a chart of the four body types that explains particular body shapes, cravings, and energy levels for each gland type. Then, you can figure out what type you are, where you will tend to gain weight and which diet traps you should avoid as on these links.
Men and women, both, have particular body shapes depending on their body types as shown on these visual chart links. There are certain characteristics for each body type. Pituitary men and women are supposed to avoid dairy products, adrenal types shouldn’t consume so much animal protein, gonads tend to really like spicy foods, and thyroids have cravings for sweets that only make their conditions worse.
The pituitary people look childlike with bigger heads, and tend to gain overall body fat when they don’t eat right. The gonad women look curvy and well developed, they gain on their legs and hips. The gonad men have big behinds. The thyroid men and women tend to be tall and lanky, they gain weight in their abdomen. The adrenal men and women are powerful on top with bigger chest and shoulders, kind of top heavy with comparatively little legs when gaining weight.
It’s really an interesting science to learn about. But, there is also the color code for personality types that is very interesting as well. And, my husband, who is very logical and left-brained has made the connection between the color code and the four body types.
First, I will explain a little about the color code. For an online test to discover what you are and for more information about it, click on the above link. There is a Color Code book, from which this all originated, written by Taylor Hartman, Ph.D., which you can explore on this link.
Our family members know all about the colors, and we all know what each person in our family is. It helps us to understand each other better and get along better. We also like to have family discussions about what color everybody else is that we know.
I will briefly explain each type here:
- RED – These are the power people, who like to be in charge. They think they are always right, they work hard and are achievement driven. They are logical and emotional.
- WHITE – These people love peace, they will try to get along with everyone and avoid conflict. They tend to have high principles in life and like to be respected. They are logical.
- YELLOW – These are the fun-loving people, who can be concerned with what is fun, how they appear, who likes and accepts them. They are logical and emotional.
- BLUE – The primary motivation in these people is intimacy, having friends, being a loyal friend, and doing good in the world. They are emotional.
Ideally, through your lifetime, you should overcome the weaknesses of your color and incorporate the other colors into your life, so that you are well balanced. You can be a combination of colors, but you are predominantly one color.
The guy who wrote the book is a yellow. He also wrote some other books on how to live a better life with your particular color, choose the best career for you, and how to get along better with the other color types. These topics are also included in the first book.
So, let’s get back to the connection between the four body types and the four color codes. My husband David discovered that the body types and the colors match up perfectly. Here is what he found in almost every single observation:
- Adrenals are Red
- Pituitaries are Yellow
- Gonads are Blue
- Thyroids are White
And, he also noticed married couples and how certain colors tend to marry each other. He also figured out what colors and types most men and women are. For example, in America, most men are yellows and most women are reds. The red women tend to marry the yellow men. Many women are blues and the blue women always marry the red men.
There are white men and women and the white women tend to be very amazing and respectable. There are very few yellow women and very few blue men. Yellow women can be famous and well liked. Blue men can sometimes be hard to get along with, maybe because they have different ways of thinking compared to most people.
It’s good to figure out your body type and what foods you should avoid so that you can be healthier and avoid the weight gaining tendencies. And, it’s good to understand all about the colors, so that you can get along better with everyone around you, have a good social network and thus have a healthier heart.
But, we don’t agree with the body type diets since the diseases in America are coming from the animal products consumed in excess. And, our bodies all do a lot better with a plant-based program. It’s just learning what foods are best for you overall.
And by the way, my husband is a tri-color white, red, blue. And, I am a yellow, white, blue. He is usually logical, regimented, hard-working, easy to get along with, respectful and respectable, kind, helpful, and full of life and some fun too. I like to do what is fun for me; learn about nutrition and spiritual things, have friends, give quality time for family and friends, and try to look good. I am spontaneous, detailed, creative, helpful, and a little non-assertive and shy.
We have a blue son and daughter, a yellow daughter and red daughter. And, we love and appreciate each one for their unique personalities and what they offer to our family. I love that we can understand each other and get along.
You always tend to marry someone who is opposite to yourself. You have a lot in common to begin with, but after you get married, you find out some major differences. These differences give you an opportunity to grow and become more balanced. You balance out each other, and your children get different viewpoints to learn from.
Take some time to learn about the four body types and the color code connection so that you can have a healthier life physically, mentally, and socially.
