Guys, Your Fat Is Making You More Fe-Male

Fat Turns Testosterone to Estrogen

That’s right guys, research has shown that fat has the ability to turn testosterone into estrogen. In fact, the fatter the man the more estrogen he is making. For those who like science, the enzyme aromatase is what takes testosterone and turns it into estrogen (i.e., estrone).

Your Doctor Doesn’t Want You To Know

Screen Shot 2015-03-25 at 12.42.53 PMYour doctor who is prescribing testosterone  knows that if your are overweight, the testosterone you make and the testosterone they are giving you is getting changed to estrogen.  This is why they rarely order an estrogen panel on men who are taking testosterone because they would have to explain why the estrogen levels are going up.

But I Feel Stronger Taking Testosterone

You should feel stronger because you are doing hormone replacement therapy. However, you need to remember that you have not fixed the problem. The problem is many instances is not too little testosterone being produced. The problem is too much body fat.

Adding Fuel to the Fire

When you take testosterone, which is a steroid hormone, and  you have a weight issue,  you will feel stronger but you are also increasing your estrogen load which I predict will lead to many health related issues in the future.

What Should I Do?

You need to lose weight properly. What I mean by this is you need to lose the fat and increase the muscle mass. You won’t do this with  any quick fix program.   To get fit and healthy you need to eat right, move right, and think right. At Bond Chiropractic we can help with all three.
