Cracking Your Body Code With Phil Catudal

Determining your body type is an important part of creating a workout and nutrition plan that works for you. There are three main body types (a.k.a somatotypes): ectomorph, mesomorph, and endomorph.

  • The ectomorph body type is characterized by a long and thin frame with little body fat or muscle mass.
  • Mesomorphic bodies tend to be athletic and muscular, with a natural tendency towards gaining muscle and strength.
  • Endomorphic bodies have a greater propensity for storing fat and usually have a softer and rounder physique.

To determine your body type, reflect on the shape of your frame, the amount of muscle or fat you carry, and any physical traits that make you unique. Once you have identified your body type, you can create an effective nutrition and exercise plan that is tailored to your individual needs.

Just Your Type - Book by Phil Catudal

Just Your Type: The Ultimate Guide to Eating and Training Right for Your Body Type

According to fitness guru Phil Catudal, 70 percent of people exercise the wrong way. To achieve lasting fitness and health, Catudal explains, you should work with your natural-born body type and do the optimal combination of cardio, strength training, and flexibility exercises and consume the right proportion of macronutrients for your physique. 

While fitness trends and fad diets will come and go, your body type (somatotype) is the one constant that’s never going to change. Just Your Type helps anyone create an individualized workout that’s tailored to their body shape and composition. Working harder isn’t always the answer, but working smarter is.

Preparing Mentally For The Workout Journey

Preparing your mind for working out is just as important as wearing the right clothes and having the right equipment. It’s essential to clear your mind of negative thoughts before starting a workout routine. This can be done through meditation, visualization, or simply taking time to relax and focus on calming breathing exercises. Doing this will make it easier to stay on track with your fitness plan, help to reduce stress levels and increase motivation & energy. 

Additionally, it can help to create a more positive mindset towards the body transformation and put you in the right frame of mind for success. Taking care of your mental wellbeing is key to creating healthy habits that will last and make working out an enjoyable part of life. 


Where Do I Begin… Strength and Resistance Training Or Cardio

Strength and resistance training, also known as weightlifting, is a great way to build muscle and burn calories. It can also help to improve your overall health by helping you maintain flexibility and balance, as well as boosting your metabolism. Strength and resistance training are beneficial for both short-term and long-term fitness goals, making it an ideal form of exercise for just about everyone.

Cardio, on the other hand, is excellent for improving cardiovascular health and endurance and can be an effective way to lose weight. However, it does not offer the same muscle building benefits that strength and resistance training do. Therefore, a balanced approach that includes a combination of both cardio and strength training is the best way to maximize your fitness goals.

The Age Factor: Twenty Isn’t Forty When It Comes To Losing Weight

Age can have a significant impact on weight loss. As the body ages, the metabolism tends to slow down and our bodies become less able to tolerate vigorous physical activity. This means that it is important for those who are trying to lose weight as they age to choose exercises that are tailored to their current fitness level.

Low-impact activities like walking, yoga, and swimming can be excellent options for those who are looking to maintain or lose weight as they age. Additionally, older individuals may benefit from consulting a health nutritionist or dietician to create a customized meal plan that accommodates their individual needs. With the right approach, it is possible to achieve long-term weight loss success regardless of age.

Assembling The Puzzle: Do I Need A Nutritionist and Personal Trainer?

When it comes to achieving optimal success in life, there are two key factors that can often be overlooked: nutrition and exercise. Sure, having a positive mindset and strong work ethic are important, but if you don’t have good nutritional habits and an effective exercise plan then you won’t be able to reach your full potential. This is why having a nutritionist and personal trainer on your team is so important.

A nutritionist can help you create a personalized meal plan based on your body type, goals, and lifestyle. They can also provide advice about which foods are the most beneficial for optimal health and performance. A personal trainer can help you develop a tailored exercise program that is both enjoyable and effective. They can also provide valuable feedback on form, technique, and progress.

The combination of a nutritionist and personal trainer can help you reach your desired fitness level much faster than if you were to go it alone. A nutritionist will ensure that you’re getting the right nutrients at the right times while a personal trainer will help you stay motivated and accountable. They can also provide helpful tips on how to structure your workouts for the most efficient results.

Overall, having both a nutritionist and personal trainer is the best way to ensure that you reach your goals in the shortest amount of time while still enjoying the process. It’s an investment that will pay off in the long run and can lead to a healthier and happier lifestyle. So if you’re serious about reaching your full potential, then consider hiring a nutritionist and personal trainer today. They will help set you on the path to success!


“I am not an easy person to train - I have a bad back, and I love pretzels. But Phil has managed to make exercise and eating right accessible and even, dare I say, fun. I’ve lost 10 pounds and gained 10 hit points. Highly recommended.”

“Phil is the best trainer in LA. Seriously. I've used many trainers before and never had even near the results that Phil gave me. I felt better in days, looked great in mere weeks, and was totally transformed within 6 months. Just check how different I look from Season 5 to Season 6 of Shameless and beyond! It's the total nutrition + training + motivation he gives you. The whole package. It works!”

“With my 50th birthday approaching, my goal was to be on the cover of Men’s Health. I had never worked out and I didn’t have the best eating habits, given my busy travel schedule. Phil was highly recommended by friends so I started working out with him and he transformed my diet. After five months, I’m now stronger and fitter than I ever thought possible—and I know I have a good shot of achieving my goal.”

“Consider yourself to have won the lottery if you get the opportunity to train with Phil. He’s THE MOST effective trainer I’ve ever worked with. I saw results in as little as 3 sessions. He pushes, he encourages, and you want to please him because he’s just too good of a person to disappoint. He’ll make you a better human AND give you a better body.”
Sarah Shahi

“As a member of a band that tours frequently, I would never have the energy and stamina on stage without my man Phil. The diet and exercise plan he created for me not only helped me get stronger and look better but also gave me a totally new mindset about how to eat healthfully and work out, even on the road. Phil’s the real rockstar!”
