    Does the lower amount of body fat mean you have lower estrogen levels you produce

    Because I heard body fat produces estrogen because Aromatase is abundant in body fat. Aromatase converts tesosterone and androgens to estradiol and I think other estrogens too. In general. not people with genetic disorders.

    too low BF can contribute to low test as well.

    Stop worrying, start eating.

    Ive read that
    Higher body fat can INCREASE your estrogen levels..
    Dont know how true that is though.
    It might be true since you heard it too.

    .... I eat alot. Its hard for me to gain weight because I have a fast metabolism. but not only that, Today I ate a whole chicken and some rice today for lunch.... I gained weight from before you couldnt believe How much I weighed before. I weighed. I weighed like 121-125 when I was 5'9.5 I'm 5'10.5 now. And I only gained when I started weight lifting and excercising, not because I was eating alot, because I always ate alot. Because I eat alot but I also burn fat fast anyways, was not building anything by just eating to gain weight. so Its hard to gain weight. The only way I can gain weight is by weight lifting and I have noticed that. or growing taller.

    lol. You need to eat alot MORE to gain.

    Tell us how many calories you get in on a typical day. You make think you're eating alot, but you're not.
