Does Weight Loss Increase Testosterone in Men ?

Testosterone makes men strong and sexually powerful. Obese & Overweight men tend to have low testosterone. Weight loss helps to boost testosterone levels naturally.

A recent study shows that weight loss is capable of reducing the effect of low testosterone levels in the obese and pre-diabetes mid-aged men by 50%. Testosterone is one of the important hormones in both men and women. But the issues about testosterone affect the men mostly. It plays vital roles in men’s health conditions, physically & mentally.

What is Testosterone ?

Testosterone can be defined as a hormone mainly produced in men’s testicles and women’s ovaries. It is an essential androgen hormone found in the men’s body at higher levels than women. The levels of testosterone have a significant effect in the body and influence the body natures such as sperm production, muscle and bone strength, red blood cell production, sex drive, mood, and energy levels.

The higher the testosterone level, the stronger the man becomes, and vice versa. Low testosterone levels are dangerous for men, symptoms can be erectile dysfunction, low sperm count, sleep problems, depression, low sex drive, body fat increase, mental fogginess (loss of short term memory), and muscle and strength loss. Low testosterone may cause male infertility. 

Men need higher levels of Testosterone and low levels of Estrogen, which is opposite to Women. When a man’s bodyfat is too high this allows more Estrogen to be stored in the fat cells, this is known as Estrogen Dominance (high estrogen).

Estrogen Dominance can cause depression, mood swings, insomnia and Gynecomastia (abnormal enlargement of the breasts) – non cancerous) or commonly known as “manboobs” as well as other female characteristics – No Thankyou !! The Psychological effects of these symptoms affects us men in all areas of our lives from the workplace, to the sportsfield and locker rooms and then into the bedroom. Taking control of your health (mental & physical) and your looks by losing all that fat that has been there for too long. And trust me you will feel more of a man than ever before in every aspect of your life.

It is important to keep the levels of testosterone in a normal range to avoid all these problems. So, how do we know what are normal levels ?

What are the Normal Levels of Testosterone?

Normal testosterone levels cannot be exactly defined as healthier testosterone levels as these have a wide range based on each individual. What is considered “normal” for one person can be high or low for another person. There is a difference between free testosterone and testosterone. Most of the testosterone produced by the body is connected into two proteins namely; sex hormone binding globulin and albumin.

A larger part of these hormones finds it very difficult to separate from proteins; thereby not available for use. This makes people increase the amount of testosterone and reduces the amount of free testosterone in the process. This is how the symptoms of low testosterone levels come up. So, if testosterone levels are not normal, it poses a threat to the men’s health, and these can be dangerous if not tackled in time. However, one of the ways to boost testosterone is through weight loss and other body fat shedding activities. This will be discussed in this article, but before that, let’s look at the relationship between weight loss and testosterone.

Relationship between Testosterone and Weight Loss

Many believe that testosterone is only concerned with sexual activities, not knowing that it goes beyond that. Normal levels of testosterone are needed for muscle building, to keep healthy fat levels, to enhance our sex drive, and to boost energy, as well as positive mood.. As we age, testosterone levels tend to decrease, and this leads to many health issues such as weight gain, depression, low sex drive, and heart disease. The question isdoes weight loss boost testosterone levels in men ?”

Weight loss and testosterone are directly linked together solving low testosterone in men. Testosterone has advantage for fat loss in healthy men, because the higher your testosterone levels are the easier it is to lose weight. The benefits of testosterone cannot be over emphasised in men, as it assists in building muscle boosts insulin sensitivity, keeps you metobolically healthy, bone density improves and provides many essential benefits for the body, and most importantly it makes men feel like real men.

Weight loss increases testosterone

However, being overweight reduces testosterone production, which leads to low testosterone and fat accumulation. Many weight issues that are attributed to low testosterone are insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome X, and other metabolic problems in men.

Weight loss improves testosterone levels – if the vicious cycle created by low testosterone and being overweight is broken and defeated – then your testosterone levels will rise naturally.
