I would have never guessed that a marginal ( by American standards of extra weight) amount of weight lost would make that kind of difference. That's pretty remarkable actually. Carrying 8 pounds of extra weight seems harmless in a sense considering it's such a lower number in comparison with the average amount of extra weight most people in the United States need to lose. Some men carry that extra weight and show no signs of hormonal imbalances while other men who are indeed carrying that extra 30-40 pounds are on the edge of being hypogondal with high estrogen. Great news and great work!
this is something that I wonder a lot about when I am out in public and see men, 80% who have stomachs over their belts,
I think, how can they not have testosterone issues and all the symptoms that go with that?
I look at myself and I know I have lost a ton of weight in the last year and I think it's played a big difference, in my testosterone level due to the reduced estrogen. but then I've never had my estrogen measured...oops
maybe they have high testosterone to overcome any issues?
I also thought, maybe they are fat and their wives are fat, so they dont have sex/good sex and think along the lines of, "I'll diet later" or" Im just aging...zzzzzzzzz"
