Gut Fat and Testosterone!

Gut Fat and Testosterone!

Hi Mark,

I've grown a pretty good sized pot belly, which has coincided with my loss of sex drive and ED issues.

Is it possible that my weight gain and loss of testosterone are somehow correlated?

Gut Fat and Testosterone!

Hi Steve,

Yes, there's a very strong correlation between waist circumference and testosterone levels.

And this gut fat attacks your manhood from at least two different directions.

First, as belly size increases, sex hormone binding globulin levels go up.

This SHBG then binds to the testosterone in your blood stream, making it unavailable for use by the body.

In other words, SHBC goes up and free testosterone levels go down.

Not a good thing!

The next assault goes after your total testosterone, as your body becomes a highly effective estrogen producing machine.


The bigger your gut, the more of the enzyme aromatase you have in your system.

Aromatase sucks the testosterone right out of your bloodstream, and quickly and efficiently converts it into estrogen.

Continue on this slide, and you'll eventually enter the feminine zone.

Then comes the development of breasts, loss of motivation, low energy levels, mood disorders, decreased muscle mass, and erectile dysfunction.

You have to draw a line in the sand, Steve.

Then you make a promise to yourself, that you'll never cross it no matter what happens.

That line for me is 34 inches!

When my belt starts getting tight, I don't even think about loosening it a notch.

I get my butt off the couch and get busy!

I clean up my diet, I exercise harder and longer until those 34's slip on with room to spare.


Because I know a jump from 34 to 36 means one thing, and one thing only....

That I'm slipping, I'm loosing it and my quality of life is going to decline in dramatic fashion if I don't do something about it.

Sure, it would be a lot easier to keep cracking the beers, stuffing my face, and laying on the couch, but I don't want easy.

I want sex drive, I want muscle, energy, motivation, and happiness.

You can't have it both ways Steve...

You either lose the gut or you lose the testosterone!

The question you need to ask yourself now is, how bad do you want it?
