Interview with Dr. Daniel Monti, M.D. author The Great Life Makeover: Weight, Mood, and Sex
Dr. Daniel Monti:
Daniel Monti, M.D.
Sometimes men complain of more emotional lability (being more emotional), they complain that they can no longer maintain the muscle tone they once had and often it is very much related to the change in testosterone levels. And sometimes men develop something called gynecomastia - I guess the lay term would be sort of like - man breasts.
Sometimes changes in hormones require medical intervention so you should see your doctor. But in general, losing the weight and living a healthy lifestyle will regulate those hormones.
Many people don't know that certain foods can actually have a direct impact on our hormone levels. For example, cruciferous vegetables - like broccoli, kale, brussel sprouts - those kind of things that people often don't think to eat enough of - have a hormone regulating effect on women and men.
