Nomads tend to be large-boned, and their BMI and waist-to-hip ratio are often higher than average; this isn't necessarily an indication of excess fat, but rather muscularity. Nomads are often mesomorphs, possessing a low to medium body-fat percentage, medium to large bone size, a medium to high metabolism, and a large amount of muscle mass and muscle size. One of the hallmarks of the Nomad is their tendency to be highly sensitive to environmental conditions - especially changes in altitude and barometric pressure. The Nomad is vulnerable to neuromuscular and immune problems. Yet a well-conditioned Nomad has the enviable gift of controlling caloric intake and aging gracefully. Their survival strategy reflects a life of travel, encountering different environments and having to cope with a wide variety of challenges.
