HGH vs body fat theory reexamined

By | December 6, 2011

Are you aware that there is a firm connection between low HGH levels and obesity? Is this why people who are in their 30s can be spotted almost straight away by the very obvious fact that they are more “padded”? Don’t just take my word for it, but go out and observe many people in their 30s – what is the most common physical sign that they are no longer in their 20s? To me, it’s the extra weight that many of them carry around!

Many 30-something people can actually still look like they are in their twenties, but because most are married with kids, and most likely in the thick of their careers during that time, they no longer have time to exercise, keep fit, and stay as active as they once were, in their 20s. However, the main reason why a 30-something puts on weight more easily and has a harder time burning it off, is because of declining HGH levels, and this HGH decline is accentuated by an increase in fat.

Maintaining an ideal body weight during the 30s simply becomes a harder chore, as many will attest. Women will lose the slim figures they once had while in their 20s, and men will often start piling up the pounds around the waist, and turn more “portly”. This is a cyclic thing which self perpetuates itself – if you don’t do anything about it!

HGH and body fat are both in direct opposition to each other.

The more body fat there is, the harder it is for growth hormone to be released. Meanwhile, the less growth hormone is released, the more accentuated the aging becomes, as even lean muscle mass starts to decline. This is why if you are in your 30s or 40s, you should be taking vigorous steps to arrest this slow yet steady, downward spiral. Those who do so are noticeably in much better shape than those who don’t.

A question still being asked by detractors of HGH is not whether obesity causes low growth hormone, but whether administering growth hormone can lower obesity or not. While a 2002 study on the effects of HGH administration on obesity suggested there was minimal impact, another study showed that weekly administered low dose recombinant HGH DID reduce fat around the waist. The assertion that HGH fights fat is still, for all intents and purposes – very valid. Both are in direct opposition to each other; remove one and the other thrives.

According to researchers, if your pituitary is intact, you can increase your HGH level without taking any drugs/injections whatsoever, simply by exercise and reducing your caloric intake (like fasting for example), which in turn lowers your body fat and ultimately, raises your growth hormone level, especially if you combine this with taking a natural HGH releaser. This is still really, the most sensible, long term approach for people in their 30s and 40s, who want to keep their youth on for longer.
