Take Dr. Berg's Body Type Quiz: http://bit.ly/BodyTypeQuiz For more information about Dr. Berg's program in Alexandria, Virginia, call 703-354-7336. Dr. Berg discusses about the body shape, the different female body types and other male body types and tips on the ideal body types. The first body type is the adrenal body type (sagging belly). These people need to reduce stress and sleep and have a little more protein with each meal. The next body type is the thyroid body type (the weight is spread all over). A primary thyroid problem could come from heavy estrogen or heavy periods or a lack of digestive ball bladder or a stress issue. The next body type is the liver body type (mainly men). The last body type is the ovary body type (estrogen dominant cases). Dr. Berg talks about the body types and differentiates the differences between the adrenal body type, the ovary body type, the thyroid body type and the liver body type.

Why so low volume?
jackalicious27 (4 days ago)
I feel I am a mix of adrenal and thyroid.. I gain weight everywhere, but have a sagging belly, but have very muscular legs and booty... I started keto this week for a second time, as it work the first time.. which keto route should I take as a body type?! I don’t take thyroid meds, and have been frequently tested , but it is hard for the weight to come off.. so I sway with thyroid..
Beth Watson (14 days ago)
Thank you! I am adrenal type.

Dr. Berg, I took your body type quiz and the results say that I am a pancreatic body type. I saw that your offered a kit which included electrolyte powder, nutritional yeast tablets and wheatgrass powder. I was considering ordering it until I learned that the electrolyte powder contains magnesium citrate. I have interstitial cystitis and cannot take magnesium citrate as it is extremely painful to my bladder. Are there other options I could consider? Thank you.

Adrenal. Which makes sense considering I have an anxiety disorder and have had a huge amount of stress over the years. Things aren't as stressful now, but I can't exactly stop the anxiety disorder. My heart beats >90 bpm at rest. I've been doing keto for a month now and and have noticeable fat loss to the face, legs and rib areas. Some inches lost on the belly, but it's still bigger than I would expect. Will it go down completely with this diet or do I need to meditate or something on top? I haven't had a flat belly my entire life and I would really like to achieve it.

Please everyone listen to what Dr. Berg says about thyroid adrenal being secondary to autoimmune response and go right to your Doctor to get an Epstein Barr Virus Test. Google it and read up on it. It is linked to serious disease because it gets into the organs and you need to detox the organs to keep healthier and not sluggish. Please get all 4 EBV tests.

Dr. I started Keto last week. I don't have a thyroid or gallbladder anymore. Will keto still work for me? And Do I have clean my liver in order to get better results? I bought Bragg's apple cider vinegar. I heard it helps with all of our organs.

Im slowly..very slowly losing weight now..[I think a snail could out run me] but I feel a lot better. Im doing the 16 hour a day fast...I eat 2 times a day and a snack within an 8 hour window. I keep it 85% healthy..but theres times like today...I had a nutty buddy ice cream..it was good..lol...I need to get back to..if the doctor will let me..drinking 10 bottles [16oz] of water a day..he wants me between 6-8..but when I was doing 10..the weight started to drop on my 3rd week..by week 12 I lost 47 pounds..the suckie part is..Im still the same size in cloths..I just dont have to lay on the bed, use pliers to grab my zipper, suck in and pray I can breath. And the only part of keto I do is keeping it healthy..[most times]..but for myself, and others Ive spoken to who cant do keto because they got the same problem from it I did..we all agree..intermittent fasting is working better. The weight wont come off as fast..but it also doesn't shock your body as much. Keep an eye on your bp for at least 3 months..check It 2 times a day..if you notice it starts going up..stop..if its staying normal..you should be ok...today after 20 hours of fasting [I had a busy day] I ate a sandwich on multi grain bread, a handful of chips, I only eat those like maybe once a month....for supper a simple salad and about 8 ritz crackers..and my ice cream inbetween...I wont eat again till noon, and have my last bite of food before 8pm

Lindsay Truempy Wow! So sorry to hear that. I was thinking about that! I noticed I been on for 9 days and lost 1 lb. 😒 When I ate more fruits, nuts, veggies and lean meat (mainly fish and organic chicken) every 3-4 hrs I lost 12.5 lbs in 10 days. No sugar and no processed over salty foods. I'm going back to it. How are u feeling now? Are u still on Keto?
Lindsay Truempy (1 month ago)

I've been watching your videos all day. Just now I took your body type test. Now you appear to me and I'm others as well, as an intelligent guy. I like what you've had to say but you have got to do something about fixing the typos, misspellings and poor grammer throughout this test. I feel like I've thrown away my entire day now. Please TELL ME I didn't waste my time listening to you today!! Here are some examples from 2 paragraphs. I've added " " to point these out. There are many, many more. Please have someone fix these that has a better grasp on the English language. 1. "These leads" to fatigue after meals, lots of bloating and digestion stress "a" even the need for something sweet after your meals and you just are not satisfied. 2. STRESS RELIEF | Stress can cause a myriad of health issues and problems. Dr. Berg's "Nutt onal" Yeast Tablets helps reduce your body stress and "provide a complex" of natural B-vitamins. Nutritional Yeast is a great source of natural B-vitamins. "a" necessity for the healthy ketosis plan. It is when you are deficient in the B-vitamins that you can experience keto rash or keto fatigue. B-vitamins can protect you against high insulin and sugar. As you mentioned in several videos I may be intolerant to incompetence right now. Sorry but I felt the need to point these out. I wonder how many other people have also pointed these out?

A lot of plants have more estrogen than meat and dairy. The FDA has proven that there is no hormones in milk or meat that was treated by hormones.

When you have an autoimmune problem, it’s very important to remove immunity-enhancing foods from your diet. Green tea is one of them. Caffeine is also exhausting for your adrenals.
lovelyxskinny (3 months ago)
I am wondering I was diagnosed hypothyroid and take synthroid and I still feel exhausted all the time. I asked them about adrenals so many times and they say it has nothing to do with my adrenals. Will diet alone solve my adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism?

Dr. Berg, Is it possible to to have 2 body types? I feel like both the adrenal & thyroid fit me. I have symptoms of both. Fat all over & a sagging belly. I have poor sleeping habits, stressed out, my unbalanced hormones got my menstral bleeding going for months at a time & a lot of hairloss. I had started a strict low carb diet lost 35lbs but the sagging belly was still there. Disappointed, stressed out & depressed about how bad my hair loss has gotten I cheated on my diet & kept on cheating til I gained the weight back. *sighs* :(

I'm an adrenal type (high stress) and am both European and Middle Eastern decent. While my bone structure is smaller, my bones are very strong. So I'm perplexed and am not sure if I should have more of or lay off of the dairy. Any suggestions? Lean protein is always a must as well as alternative forms of protein to keep things balanced. I found it helps me maintain a healthy energy level and I'm drinking less coffee as a result of this.

This is such an awakinging. I am READY to finally heal. Tremendous stress in my life. I do sleep well, and have an abundance of energy, but I do have high blood pressure and have developed tremendous weight in my belly region. I love vegetables, but a bit confused as about cruciferae vegetable limitation. I do not drink alcohol, eat sugar, or flour. I am actually IRATE that this information is NOT being taught. Thank you Dr. Berg. Looking forward to getting my life back through proper eating!

JManno (7 months ago)
Even though I'm not "fat", I am definitely body type 2. I do not have a gall bladder, but I do have trouble with my liver due to Lyme & Co. I'm pretty sure that's actually the reason for the cholecystectomy. I've had my thyroid checked many times and on paper I'm practically borderline hypo, but my symptoms are hyper. I think I have an estrogen problem, too, because I have a progestin IUD.

I am really confused about my body type. I look like the lady with the beer belly, but have been diagnosed with PCOS and placed on Metformin inositol. I have i have hair loss, hirsutism, leg and hand cramps, foggy brain, headaches on left side of brain, chest pain, sever breast pain from end of one cycle to another, sinus problem that get worse especially when my arthritis symptoms flare up (still on the waiting list after 3 years). I just started adding kelp to my diet. I am at a loss of what to do to help myself.
Alysa Norris (8 months ago)
I am curious about this because I am going to have an adrenalectomy and I also have an under active thyroid if this is going to possibly clear up my thyroid issue which I have not had for more than a couple of years randomly. I started gaining weight losing energy sleeping all the time found out I had under active thyroid, started having palpitations started having surges of panic attacks and high blood pressure still gaining weight and then they said I have a large tumor on my left adrenal gland. something to think about I guess.

Dr. Berg - my hubby and I love your videos. We started your adrenals program last week. I am down 6 pounds, and my husband about 4. He and I have both had tremendous stress... Loss of family members, jobs (both of us), etc. But even though my body shape is not estrogen type, I have some estrogen symptoms. (I have been on synthroid since 25 yrs old, (now 50)). I would like to heal my thyroid and get off of synthroid entirely. Any suggestions? I did watch some of your thyroid and estrogen videos also. Any tips appreciated! Thanks so much! :-) Thanks for all the information you share. VERY helpful!

Can someone please guide me! I feel I have adrenal type and liver type body. I have a pot belly and rest of my body is not fat. I also have most signs of weak adrenals due to prolonged exercise and stress with poor diet. Adrenal related symptoms are dizziness while standing up from a seated positing, weakness, poor concentration and a lot more that dr Eric mentioned in his book. How can it be both liver and weak adrenal type body in my case? These two have different guidelines in his book. Some are opposites. For instance adrenal healing requires higher protein but liver type requires lower level of protein. Can’t figure this out!
wildthing*** (8 months ago)
Years ago I had blood test to check my hormone levels because I was so tired all the time. I didn't want to take depression medication. The doctor found I was a little low on testosterone. There's a pharmacy that does the compound mixing but he would not prescribe for me. He gave me no reason. I still think it could have helped and couldn't have hurt to try it. I'm cancer-free after 19 years. I was given 3 months to live at that time. They were worried about eating soy which is changed since then. I don't eat meat but I do eat fish at times. Back to the compound that the pharmacies mix up 4 each individual's needs. What's your opinion on that?
