Ready to get rid of your Dad Bod?
Last summer saw the short-lived craze celebrating the “Dad Bod”. Leonardo DiCaprio was praised for having a less-than-fat-but-sure-not-toned abdomen and some Hollywood tidal wave pushed the “Dad Bod” as the new standard of male sexiness. The Dad Bod tells the world, “I lift weights every once in awhile, but I’m also good at lifting more tacos onto my plate.”
Whether you were a fan of the Dad Bod or not, or even completely unaware it was a craze last summer, now is the year to get rid of your slight paunch. Having a few extra pounds isn’t a new fad, but celebrating mediocre physical fitness may help more guys feel less inclined to get on the incline. In fact, your shirtless appearance may be more Ben & Jerry’s than Muscle & Fitness. Spoiler alert: that’s not good for your long-term health.
Carrying ten or more extra pounds can increase risk of developing cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis or osteoarthritis in the knees, hips, and back region, and Type II Diabetes. If you’re serious about getting to 70 with years to spare, it’s time to get rid of your Dad Bod.
Before you start pounding the weights and eating greens again, there’s one bit of information you may not know: your Dad Bod may be a sign of imbalanced hormones. As men age, our bodies start producing less testosterone and gathering more estradiol, a form of estrogen in dudes. Testosterone begins converting to estradiol using a process called aromatization and that’s when the belly starts to grow.
Thankfully, testosterone replacement therapy from Mantality focuses on balancing all of your hormones, not just testosterone. Our board-certified physicians start with a basic blood draw to run a series of tests to determine your exact hormone imbalance. We take the time to give you the answers you need to start the perfect treatment. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) helps restore your hormones to healthy, normal levels, which gives you the energy, metabolism, and fat-burning power to trim off your Dad Bod and be the envy of the neighborhood.
