In this article, we will outline the various factors that play a role in shaping the body, to give insight into the sometimes unfair blending of genes, environmental factors, bacteria, hormones that determine an individual’s biology. As such, we intend to discard the belief that one specific morphology should be pursued at expense of all others. We believe that instead, individuals should adjust their expectations in relation to their respective biological backgrounds, and adopt a ‘best of your own’ mentality, in order to achieve the best body shape possible specific within the boundaries of their physical capacity. With this objective in mind, the DuraScience Institute of USA has been working on a scientific principle called BTS (Body Transformation Solutions), to help individuals get into good shape, at their own best.

6 Responsible factors
Genetics significantly affect metabolism, fat distribution (about 40-55%), and fat storage (about 5-40%) in the body. Indeed, research indicates that among 6 and 85% of the population, genetics influence the distribution and amount of weight present in the body. This is because genes control nutrient absorption, the metabolism as well as adipogenesis.
This evidence points out to the fact
that the closer the genetic makeup
of a person is to a relative, to more
likely he will exhibit the same bodily
attributes, and BFP value inside his body.
EFFECTIVE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
“You are what you eat” is not simply a saying: it is also a universal truth supported by scientific evidence. Indeed, food ingestion involves a process whereby the stomach breaks down nutrients from the consumed food. If this gastric process occurs too quickly, it is likely to exacerbate weight disorders such as obesity by triggering food cravings, as well as ‘hunger hormones’, which instead of sending signals to the brain to regulate food intake, will trick the brain into thinking that it needs more nutrients than it already absorbed. Hence, the stomach, with its two essential functions (the production of hunger hormones, and the gastric breakdown of ingested food) plays an incontestable role in defining the body shape of a person.
GUT’S BACTERIAL BALANCE
About 100 trillion bacteria can be found the digestive system, which can be classified into 1,000 different category types. The gut’s health and its proper functioning depends on the fragile equilibrium among these bacteria, which in turn helps to regulate both the immune and metabolic systems. A loss of this bacterial balance, however, is reflected in the developing of metabolic syndromes such as abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, dyslipidaemia, and insulin resistance. Metabolic syndromes are believed to cause strokes and atherosclerosis as well.
Body fat and excess energy accumulated over time are stored in the adipocytes. Higher volume of fat cells cause hypertrophy, and rapid weight gain may lead to hyperplasia or adipogenesis, making it more difficult to lose weight.
A range of hormones can affect hunger, satiety, fat storage, fat distribution, as well as muscle generation. These include thyroid, growth, sex and steroid hormones, as well as insulin, leptin and ghrelin.
