Optimizing Male Hormones for Fat Loss, Energy, and Libido with Alex Van Houten

Optimizing Male Hormones for Fat Loss, Energy, and Libido with Alex Van Houten

Behold the dadbod. How did we get this way? The stubborn belly fat that doesn’t go away no matter how hard we work. The muscle mass that’s harder to maintain than it used to be. We don’t have the same energy and stamina we used to. Maybe things have even cooled off in the bedroom.

Alex Van Houten is the founder of Defining Dadbod. He’s going to talk about how our chemistry changes after we become fathers and how to define the dadbod by optimizing our male hormones for fat loss, energy, and libido.

Alex Van Houten and Defining Dadbod

Alex Van Houten was on track to become an orthopedic surgeon, but he noticed both the patients and doctors didn’t like the business. That was when he veered toward the prevention side of health and became a personal trainer. In his work, Alex often dealt with menopausal women and became interested in hormones and how they affect energy levels, body composition, and libido.

The changes women go through are complex, but men also go through distinct changes. When Alex became a dad he experienced himself what the male body goes through. He looked into it and discovered that there are scientific reasons for the infamous ‘dadbod,’ but men’s challenges with hormones don’t get the same attention as women’s.

Alex aims to change that with Defining Dadbod.
