Estrogen's effects on stubborn fat
An excerpt from SFS

"Which is fundamentally why blocking estrogen doesnít fix the lower body fat problem. Lower body fat cells act a certain way whether estrogen is present or not, thatís how they are genetically wired to act. The same goes for abdominal fat. Regardless of the personís testosterone levels, they are wired to be a certain way. Now itís time to learn what that wiring is and what makes stubborn fat cells stubborn."
"Estrogen controls lipolysis by up-regulating alpha2A-adrenergic receptors directly in human adipose tissue through the estrogen receptor alpha. "

The above study seems to say that estrogen upregulates alpha2 receptors and keeping in mind that stubborn fat usually has more alpha 2 receptors, do you think it's wise to keep estrogen on check ? even trying to minimize it during diet(targeting stubborn fat )?

Thanks !

People used anti estrogens for years in bodybuilding with minimal to no effect except water loss. So no.

And the increase in a-2 receptors occurs right before the second half of the cycle. It's clearly to induce fat gain when progestrone, which is the real problem, is high.
