A new study found that as men gain weight and become more obese, their hormonal levels start to change which negatively influences their sex lives.

Gastric bypass surgery was found helpful in reversing these problems.
Previous studies conducted on the effects of male obesity found that it was correlated to lower sperm count and possibly to infertility, but the researchers wanted to know if obesity could biologically be associated with an unsatisfying sex life, and if so, could it be reversible.

The study results indicate that the answer to both questions may be positive.

The researchers checked the weight, body mass index (BMI) and reproductive hormone levels of 64 obese men at the start of the study and again two years later, after some of them had what's known as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. The participants also filled out questionnaires about the quality of their lives.

The study showed that lower testosterone levels and low ratings for sexual quality of life were correlated with increased BMI. Study participants who lost weight through bariatric surgery experienced a reduction in estradiol hormonal levels, an increase in testosterone levels and an increase in sexual life quality.

Weight training can improve lean body mass, and helps maintain testosterone level. It becomes increasingly more important for a man to weight train as he grows older to slow down or to stop the accumulation of body fat.

Yes, but the guys who train do not have central obesity (large waists). How do you make a guy with a large waist to get off his ass and starts doing anything about it?

Words are not helping.

Some of the guys that train at my gym do have a large waist, relatively speaking. They are big guys though. The best way to shame a guy with a large waist to get off his ass and start training is to get him to date a female body builder.

But what if the guy was your husband? :-)

I think the increase of BMI doesn't reduce the sexual life quality only, but the life quality in general and for both genders not only by man.

Well, so far it hasn't but I'm afraid that if it (the waist) continued to expand, it definitely might, LOL
