Belly Fat and Low Testosterone

Did you know there is a strong correlation between belly fat and having low levels of testosterone?

As if the loss of testosterone and fat gain cycle weren’t bad enough, body fat has an enzyme called aromatase, which converts testosterone into estrogen.

It’s common for men to lose testosterone as they age, even beginning as early as 30! However, weight gain can accelerate the process. Staying active and eating healthy can help men avoid the annoying habit of developing the infamous “pot belly,” but what happens when diet and exercise just aren’t enough?  Among many patients struggling with low levels of testosterone, once their hormones are more regulated, they are seeing massive improvements with gaining muscle and losing weight. Not to mention a major increase in energy. When someone has higher estrogen levels in their body, their hormonal system tells the body to slow down its production of testosterone, which ultimately results in chronic fatigue, weight gain, inability to lose weight and much more.
