Hi all

I wasn't sure where to post this so I figured it was metabolism related.

So my question is. Is it possible to change bodyfat distribution?

My current understanding is that testosterone in lower range and out of upper limits causes the typical android distribution. I'm sure this is related to cortisol and estrogen but not certain the mechanisms.

In females with pcos they have a Android distribution and there is controversy if it's hyperesteogenism or androgenism. My hunch is that normalising progesterone levels would reduce visceral fat accumulation in both genders. Appreciate any insights in this regard.

Bodybuilders will say that the last fat deposits to disappear during a fat loss cycle is around the lower stomach area to reveal the lower six pack and likewise it is the same area where fat first shows once it is gained again. At least in males. I guess that is not necessarily visceral fat though.

I think there are studies which show that 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar each day aids in fat loss and that loss is visceral fat.

Surely is if oyu're manipulating the E2/Cortisol ratio. Prolactin etc.
Is belly fat basically cortisol? Also afaik E2 makes you get fat in the lower parts, butt and thighs. I actually have that issue, but my e2 levels are low.

Lower belly fat definitely is cortisol related, I can attest to that. It'd seem like estrogen would put fat into thighs and glutes.
