Women with Adrenal body type have a "boyish" figure, with a straight, poorly defined waist, and medium-to-large bone structure. They have a wide, grounded stance, and solid musculature throughout their torso, arms, thighs, and calves. Weight gains easily and often fluctuates according to their emotional state. Weight gain begins in the abdomen, waist, entire back, upper hips, upper arms, upper thighs, breasts and face. Secondary weight gain is all over.
Men with Adrenal body type have a strong, stocky appearance with solid musculature. Muscular definition is easy for them to attain with exercise. Their shoulders are moderately to markedly broader than hips, and height is average to tall. They can easily gain gain, which accumulates as a "beer belly" or a solid thickening of the waist.

Oprah Winfrey, Whoopi Goldberg, Arnold Swartzenegger, Bruce Willis, Serena Williams, Jon Favreau, Channing Tatum, Ronda Rousey, Kanye West, Pink, Jay Mohr, Katie Ledecky, Grant Cardone, Garth Brooks, Simon Cowell
Sweets, especially candy, chocolate, or ice cream; salty foods like nuts (particularly peanuts), chips, and french fries; protein such as eggs, chicken, and beef (typically steak or hamburger), particularly in the evening. Energy lull around 5 p.m. (i.e., cocktail hour), at which time salty foods, sweets, and/or cocktails are craved. Because salt and beef stimulate adrenals, it is best to stay away from both salty foods and beef such as hamburgers.
A partial list of Unsupportive Foods for the Adrenal Body Type include: Beef, crab, scallops, shrimp, ice cream, cashews, pistachios, cucumbers, artificial sweeteners such as Equal or Nutrasweet, salt, MSG, and diet sodas.
Exercise at least 40 minutes daily, best after 5:00 PM to release excess adrenaline built up during the day. Stationary activities build up energy in the body, while movement activities like running or swimming have a calming effect.
