Women have long resented men for being able to lose weight quickly. There’s a reason for this.
Women’s bodies are designed to hold on to fat for times that they may be pregnant or breast-feeding. Men have an advantage of having more muscle and theoretically being able to drop fat quicker. However, that trend is changing. Men are continuing to gain weight at the same rate as women. Men’s testosterone levels are at the lowest levels in recorded history. More men are walking around with what appears to be beer bellies. Why is this happening? There are many theories about why this is occurring. One thought is that the prevalence of pesticides, chemicals, and other pollutants are disrupting hormone production in our population.
