Mens-Corner.net – It often happens that men, whether in the younger population or those more mature, have difficulties getting rid of so-called “man boobs”.
It is a diagnosis that is called gynecomastia (Gr. Gyne – women, mastos – chest) and it is facing an extremely high number of male population (on average, one in three men under the age of 40).
The most common cause of the phenomenon is the excessive accumulation of fat or glandular tissue in the breast area.
Just in regular training to insert a few exercises that will help you lose excess weight and build muscles. In addition to shaping the breast, this exercise will activate the muscles of the back and buttocks.
More and more men opt for the cosmetic procedure to reduce the “man boobs”, i.e. a build-up of excess fat in that area. The good news is that you do not necessarily have to go under the knife because of this problem.
You need the weights of 7,5 (16 lb) or 10 kilograms (22 lb). Each exercise is performed in supersets. Start with exercise 1A and do as many reps in 30 seconds. Then rest for 30 seconds and get to the exercise 1B, do as many reps in 30 seconds and rest again 30 seconds. This is one round. Make 4 rounds first superset and rest for 2 minutes before you go to the second round and do 4 supersets. Training works 2 or 3 times a week. See the exercises here.
Foods That Melt Away Man Boobs
Muscle and Fitness – A lack of progress in the gym along with chest fat can indicate low testosterone levels.
It wouldn’t surprise me if you said your sex drive was down also, or that you were having poor or less frequent erections.
Your diet is potentially squelching your testosterone, and by default, your ability to put on muscle and lose fat.
Start eating foods that are high in monounsaturated fats, such as avocados, nuts, and olive oil.
Don’t be afraid to add a yolk or two to your eggs. Testosterone is made from cholesterol, and studies have shown that dietary cholesterol doesn’t raise “bad” LDL levels in your blood.
Add some broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts to your salads. These veggies contain three active ingredients that inhibit estrogen.
Maca is a root vegetable renowned for its hormonal optimizing effects. Zinc is also essential for T production. I’d recommend three capsules of ZMA before bed. Read more.
The Cure For Man Boobs
Gynecomastia is incredibly embarrassing and shockingly common. But it’s treatable. Your flat-chest plan is here

Men’s Health – With his shaved head, lean torso, and broad shoulders, Kevin Larrabee, C.S.C.S., looks like a lot of fitness professionals.
At his job at Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning in Boston, the 30-year-old fits right in with the crowd.
But back when he was a teenager, Larrabee stood out for the wrong reasons. For one thing, he was overweight at 210 pounds. And he had another problem: man boobs.
“I just thought I had the chest of a fat kid,” says Larrabee. So at age 15, he decided to lose the excess poundage.
He ditched the junk food and embraced a healthier, lower-calorie diet. He exercised “a ridiculous amount.”
In three months he dropped to 175 pounds. But somehow he still had those womanly breasts.
What Larrabee didn’t know was that his condition, gynecomastia—known colloquially as man boobs, mannary glands, or, if you’re especially unkind, chesticles—was caused by breast tissue, an artifact of the hormonal big bang that hits all boys at puberty.
He also didn’t know that 50 percent of his peers had developed gynecomastia as well but that in most of them it later receded to unnoticeable levels.
“I knew it wasn’t right, but there wasn’t anything I could do about it other than try to lose more weight,” he remembers. “I was as far as I could get with the knowledge I had.”
Your body is not always a perfect regulator of your hormones, says Adrian Lo, M.D., a plastic surgeon based in Philadelphia who specializes in gynecomastia. Read more.
