Weight Loss Hormone Balance and Nutrition For Men
The Hormone Connection:
Studies show that what men eat can significantly influence how they feel, how they perform, and how they think. Maintaining mental health is important so that men can feel good about themselves, their relationships, their jobs, and all aspects of their lives. The improper balance of several important hormones and nutrients and metabolism can play a critical role in weight gain in men. There is a strong connection between low Testosterone, elevated Estrogen levels, and weight gain in men. Combined with constant stress that raises Cortisol levels causing increased fat deposition, men frequently experience an increase in body fat especially in the abdominal area and a decrease in muscle mass.
Abdominal Fat Converts Testosterone To Estrogen:
Abdominal fat does not just sit there; it is metabolically active and converts the male hormone Testosterone into the hormone Estrogen. This cycle results in a further decrease in Testosterone levels and further increase in body fat and loss of muscle mass. Resulting in fatigue, low energy levels, and a host of other symptoms associated with Andropause. Thyroid disorders, particularly low thyroid, commonly seen in andropause often causes weight gain by decreasing the body’s metabolic rate and slowing the fat burn.
How Metabolism Changes With Age:
When it comes to nutrition it is important that men eat a healthy diet with the right amount of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats.. Without a proper diet men will develop low energy levels, have little interest in sex, and have trouble maintaining an energy level that is needed to function normally and in optimal mental health.
As men age, they have specific nutritional and supplement needs that need to be addressed. This is because as they age they become less active and their metabolic rate starts in decrease. This means that men need to concentrate on specific areas as they age that include:
- The amount and type of protein that they eat.
- The amount and type of Vitamins that they eat or get in a supplement form
- The amount and types of Minerals that they eat or get in a supplement form.
- Precisely balanced hormones
- Body composition and lean muscle mass.
