In brief: Hormone dysfunction

Often central obesity is a function of hormone dysfunction.
In women, estrogen receptors are found in your belly. Estrogen dysfunction/dominance leads to central weight gain; additionally dysfunctional bleeding, heavy cycles, migraines, fatigue, etc. It also may be a sign of thyroid dysfunction and leptin resistance. Seek the advice of a bariatrician who also is skilled with hormone therapy.
