Your body changes with the seasons

A new study reported by Discovery News found that, "seasonal changes cause fat to shift locations in our body, thus altering the shape of our figures at certain times of the year."

The culprit is fluctuating testosterone levels in our body. During the fall, testosterone levels are at their highest. In the spring, they're lowest. When testosterone levels are high, fat in women shifts to their waists. For men, low testosterone causes fat to load up in their abdominal region.

For men, they look their manliest in the spring when "waist and hip size becomes more uniform and less feminine." Since fat moves into their wastes, women appear slightly less "curvaceous" in the fall, the study implies.

While some men admire curvaceous women, in general, previous research has found that curvy women (with high waist-to-hip ratios) are less attractive to men in Western cultures, explained the report. And there may be some evolutional basis for this. According to the Discovery article, "a large body of research finds that lower waist-to-hip ratios are associated with better fertility parameters and health parameters."

The big question still remains unanswered: why does this seasonal change occur? Some possible reasons, noted by the report, are "health, immune function, fertility and behavior."

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
