Can Weight Gain Reduce Penis Size?

(Article medically reviewed by Dr. Zac Hyde M.D)

Can weight gain reduce penis size?

Yep, it sure can.

Excess weight can bury your member under a pad of fat that will make it appear significantly smaller.

And if this weight is accumulated due to an imbalance of testosterone to estrogen, it won’t appear smaller, it WILL be smaller.

And if this feminine hormone profile isn’t corrected, your drive to breed will shrink right along with your penis.

Once you arrive here, you’ll be an overweight guy with no sex drive and a penis you can’t even see…

Unless you’re standing in front of a full length mirror. 

Not good.

Weight Loss To Correct Penile Atrophy

So what’s the solution? Weight loss, plain and simple.

This means eliminating the eating patterns that got you where you are now.

And incorporating anabolic exercise into your weekly routine that will shift you back into testosterone dominance.

And the good news?  

These routines only take about 10 minutes to complete and only need to be done 3 times a week.

I’ve been doing these brief routines for 16 years and I’ve learned first hand that nothing strips body fat faster than these brief exercises.

And keep in mind, the pursuit of a higher objective like this always leads to increased testosterone production.

This has been proven over and over again, from athletes, to CEO’s to stock market traders.

Winning and achievement fund an anabolic hormone profile.  

On the other hand…

Constant failure and falling short has the exact opposite effect.

I’ll wrap with this..

If weight gain has reduced the appearance and/or the size of your penis you are not going to be happy until you get this fixed.

So commit to 10 minutes of exercise three times a week and tweak your diet a little bit.

No need to go extreme and attempt to fast for thirty days or switch to a hardcore vegan diet.  

Extremes are not sustainable, so don’t go there.

Instead, eliminate the blatant stuff like pints of haagen daz, supersize drive thru and eating when you’re not hungry.

Then play the long game.

Because the long game is sustainable.

Now here’s David with more….

Can Weight Gain Reduce Penis Size Part 2

Men have been fighting the “battle of the bulge” since the days we first put down the spear and picked up the plow. 

Nowadays, our diets are full of junk oils, refined grains, and additives that make it even harder for our bodies to stay lean and mean. 

In fact, it’s almost expected for a man to gain weight steadily from age 30 on, regardless of the associated health problems. 

And while heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cancer may dominate the CDC’s list of obesity-related health issues, there are many more that don’t get discussed. 

In fact, as you’ll see in this article, that unsightly spare tire might also be reducing the size of your penis. 

Age, Weight, and Hormones

The primary factor that makes us all men is a little hormone called testosterone. 

Not only does it induce puberty when the time comes, but it regulates the production of red blood cells and sperm throughout our lives….

While simultaneously managing our sex drive. 

But that’s not all. The National Institutes of Health also reports that testosterone is additionally responsible for regulating our bone mass, muscle mass and strength, and fat distribution. 

When our T levels stay high, it becomes harder for us to put on weight. 

Unfortunately, as most of us know, our testosterone levels naturally decrease as we age. 

And while poor diet and a lack of proper exercise can certainly exacerbate the condition, this drop in T is usually what gets the ball rolling on our accumulation of belly fat. 

And this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Because as our testosterone drops, our estrogen levels tend to climb. 

This causes our metabolism to slow down, affects our sleep, and can even lead to breast tissue growth. 

Soon after, we can enter a cycle in which we continually gain weight while our testosterone continues to drop. 

Body Fat and Your Penis

Even the healthiest and most active of men can carry a few extra pounds here and there. 

In most cases, this is not the end of the world. 

However, when the fat / hormone cycle mentioned above begins to take root, it can lead to many sexual side effects that are very difficult to reverse. 

For instance, it’s important to remember that the shaft of your penis actually starts deep within your abdomen. 

Google any male genital chart, and you’ll be able to see this quite clearly. Also, as we gain weight, we tend to gain it everywhere. 

This can lead to deposits of fat taking up residence in your lower stomach and pelvis. 

Typically known as a “fat pad,” this extra bulk pushes outward in such a way that it can very easily start to envelop your penis shaft. 

Pardon the expression, but this is no small problem. 

In fact, it’s estimated that for every 30 to 50 lbs. of weight you gain, you will lose a full inch of your visible penis. 

If weight gain continues into the realm of morbid obesity, this condition can result in what’s known as Buried Penis.

This describes a penis that has all but disappeared into the fat pad, and it is often accompanied by erectile issues, hygiene problems, and urinary tract infections. 

In particularly advanced cases of buried penis syndrome, doctors may actually recommend surgery to “cut” the penis free of the encasing fat and skin. 

Even with treatment, one study of 18 different reports indicates that it can take years to resolve the situation.

Weight Gain & Reduced Penis SizeA Comprehensive Solution

While buried penis syndrome may be the worst-case scenario, it is far from the only issue at work here. 

After all, most overweight men also experience low self-esteem, reduced stamina, and a loss of sexual sensation. 

There might also be circulatory issues, which can lead to decreased penile blood flow. 

If prolonged, this can cause tissue damage known as penile atrophy, which will further shrink the penis. 

If that happens, even losing weight won’t help recover the lost length. 

To combat this problem, we need a comprehensive set of solutions that takes into account all the potential risk factors, such as: 

Weight Management – The first thing you need to do is figure out what your ideal weight is. 

There are dozens of BMI calculators out there, and they are very effective at helping you come up with a specific “goal weight.” 

Once established, you can make necessary dietary changes and add exercise as required. 

I always recommend focusing on eating more whole foods and protein, reducing junk carbs and adding a HIIT exercise regimen to your schedule as often as possible.  

If you’re over the age of 40, you may want to consult with a nutritionist and a personal trainer to figure out how to strategize your weight loss properly. 

Testosterone Therapy – As I said at the beginning of this article, waning testosterone levels are the prime culprit when it comes to older men gaining weight.

But if you’re proactive about this problem, you might be able to put a stop to it long before you enter the “low-T, high estrogen cycle.” 

Fortunately, there are plenty of all-natural ways to elevate your testosterone levels. 

Aside from diet and exercise (which we’ve already discussed), you’ll also want to reduce stress, get better quality sleep, and cut your drinking down to the bare minimum. 

You should also consider supplementing with proven testosterone boosters.

Just be sure to avoid anything pharmaceutical, as the side effects will typically far outweigh any benefits. 

Sexual Health – There is a two-way street between your libido and sexual activity. 

This means that one of the best options for keeping your T levels high is to simply have more sex. 

In fact, the Journal of Andrology even recommends masturbation as a way of keeping your testosterone and DHEAS levels elevated. 

So partnered sex doesn’t have to be your only option if you’re single. 

Just make sure you avoid pornography because it fry’s your brain, your drive and your penis.

Can Weight Gain Reduce Penis SizeConclusion

Weight gain is not an eventuality, nor should we treat it as such. 

Though our testosterone levels may indeed decline as we grow older, there are plenty of options to stop the potential loss of penile length before it happens (and reverse it before it’s too late). 

Remember that your sexual health, mental health, and general health are all deeply intertwined. 

Neglecting one will only lead to problems with the other. 

To ensure you retain your size and function well into your golden years, it’s important to take the necessary steps now.
