Low t weight gain

In one study, which lasted six months, the low-carb diet seemed to win hands down. The people on it lost nearly 13 pounds (6 kg); the low-fat dieters shed just 4 pounds (2 kg). But the second study lasted six months longer, revealing a truth about low-carb diets: The results don’t last. This study too found that the low-carb dieters lost more weight in the first six months, but in the second half of the year, the weight came roaring back. By the end of a year, there was no significant difference in weight loss between the two groups. This weight “snapback” may be one reason that extremely low-carb diets have fallen out of favor.
Take the Good, Leave the Bad
The good news? Many of the weight-loss advantages of low-carb diets may have nothing at all to do with restricting carbohydrates. The main benefit may be due to the extra protein—and you can add protein to your diet even if you don’t drastically cut carbs. Protein-rich foods can really help with weight control. One reason may be that protein stimulates the body to burn slightly more calories than carbohydrates or fats do.

As if pregnancy wasn’t enough of a problem when it comes to women, weight gain and their thyroid, here’s yet another: Women have more thyroid problems than men simply because of breast tissue . Did you know that a woman’s breasts require almost as much iodine as the thyroid ?

So for women, iodine has to do double, or during pregnancy, even triple duty.

There’s even a condition named for this breast tissue iodine deficiency: Fibrocystic Breast Disease . Clinically, a woman with fibrocystic breast disease should be assumed to be thyroid deficient. It has also been reported that women with this specific iodine deficiency disease are also more likely to develop breast cancer than those that don’t.

Since men don’t have these problems, women are unfortunately the ones who are typically more prone to being iodine deficient. 

While the cause and effect relationship is not clear, it is apparent that there is a strong connection between weight gain in men and andropause related hormonal imbalances. Low testosterone and high cortisol seem to increase body fat, especially in the midsection, and decrease muscle mass in men. This body fat seems to further the hormonal imbalance by converting testosterone into estrogen. Male weight gain coupled with muscle loss means more weight to carry and less muscle to carry it with, resulting in fatigue and low energy levels.

Due to the cancer, both my Naturopath and my Oncologist say I can’t do estrogen therapy, but only testosterone. I have been researching the topic from different weight gain is unacceptable to me. My sister had a hysterectomy last year and gained alot of weight in her abdomen, hips, and butt. She was always tiny. My next step is to get bloodwork done to check my thyroid, hormone levels, etc. I will continue to battle this bulge, as I am determined NOT to get fat, but to get my lean abs and small waistline back. Research shows that determination is the one crucial factor in achieving success in life. So just call me “Determined”. ☺
Don’t give up on yourselves.
