White circles are the biggest of the four body types -usually round, prone to putting on weight easily, and with sluggish lymphatic systems and metabolism. These body types often look puffier because they retain a lot of fluid – and they are naturally attracted to sugar. Their sister figure, the red oval, sweats and blushes easily and although their metabolism isn’t as slow as a white circle, they tend to overeat and overdrink.
Ovals and circles should replace coffee once or twice a day with ginseng, green or hawthorn flower tea, increase their consumption of potassium, garlic, celery and onion, never mix proteins and slow sugars in the same meal nor eat fruit, including tomatoes, with other food.
A typical breakfast should include rye bread and fresh berries, fresh salmon or chicken with green vegetables for lunch, and white meat and vegetables for dinner.
Cheese is considered poison. To fight the aging process, the green squares and yellow rectangles should do at least five minutes of stretching, breathing exercises or yoga each day-and 20 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of muscle-building exercises three times a week.
They should eat wholegrain cereals or oatmeal for breakfast, berries an hour later, followed by a lunch of green salad, low-fat cheese, a small piece of chicken and some plain yoghurt.
Vegetable soup, pasta Napolitana, salmon or chicken, and lots of vegetables are recommended for dinner.
The green squares, however, need more antioxidants than any other body type. Exfoliation and monthly microdermabrasion is good for green squares who are prone to stretch marks and benefit from blood stimulating treatments· like collagen.
When it comes to skin care, although red ovals are predisposed to redness, they are unlikely to wrinkle and should avoid anti-wrinkle creams.
Yellow rectangles are best served by yoga, meditation, reading and massage, while white circles naturally have supple skin.
