What are the causes of Man Boobs, Love Handles and Belly Fat?

Well, The number one reason it’s so hard to lose belly fat, man boobs and love handles is an imbalance or reduction in production of not just one Hormone but a combination of all hormones.

  1. Testosterone
  2. Estrogen
  3. Progesterone
  4. Testosterone Precursers
  5. Sleep Hormones
  6. DHT
  7. Cortisol

These changes in our hormone levels can be from Aging, Forced Aging from surgeries, injuries, illnesses, polluted air, toxins in food and Food Allergies. In our late 20’s and 30’s our bodies can start early aging when we start to make diminished levels of multiple hormones.


With female or male menopause comes a drop in sex hormones as well as disturbances in the Stress Hormone cortisol. These hormonal changes alters Where and How Much the body stores as fat, making men and women more prone to gaining visceral belly fat, thigh deposition of fat, Love Handles and Man Boobs. Other hormonal imbalances during this time can leave the body feeling hungry, even after eating. Sleep disturbances, common in peri-menopause and menopause, are associated with changes and loss of certain key hormones.

Additionally, the stresses of life –aging parents, work, kids, illnesses, college tuition or the mortgage – can lead to an increase in cortisol, the “stress hormone,” which also triggers your body to store fat around the middle.

By testing which 11 Hormones are low or out of balance with each other, we can balance these key hormones naturally for optimal health and performance.
