    I used to think I was an ectomorph because I was tall, long, and I couldn't gain weight for the life of me. Now I'm still tall and long, but my belly is growing. Granted I have been eating a lot of junk for the last year and I'm getting older so my metabolism is slowing down, even if only slightly. So my question is am I an ectomorph, or something else?

    You're most likely an ectomorph but, in reality, most guys fall between teo different body types, but tend to be closer to one than the other.

    Anyone who eats a lot of junk food is likely to get a belly. It has very low nutritional value and high fat and salt content and therefore will generally contribute to mid section bodyfat in guys above 25 / 30.

    We all have differing genetic make-up's so I think a more valid question for you than 'Am I an ectomorph?' is 'What can I do to improve my body shape'

    Oh, and start by ditching the junk!!

    I have been doing a lot better lately: salads from McDonalds instead of big macs, granola bars instead of candy bars, a bowl of special K every night before bed, etc. Of course there are weak moments like anybody would have, but nothing like before.

    It means it's time for you to bulk in muscle.
