Texas physician says progesterone cream reduces bodyfat

Dr. James Snow, a physician in Whitesboro, Texas, suggests that his patients who want to lose weight should try progesterone cream. Snow’s theory is that the progesterone stimulates the thyroid and causes an increase in the metabolism of fat.

While there is no mention of this idea in the medical literature, it would be an easy method to try. One needn’t accept Snow’s explanation for how it works — the effect could just as well be the result of an unknown action of progesterone upon fat cells in the skin. In that case, one would want to apply the cream to the place on the body where one wants the fat to go away.
