gynecomastia2Call it what you want; man boobs, bitch tits, moobs. Some guys have it and just want to get rid of it. Nobody wants to take off their shirt in the summer and reveal an often embarrassing problem that can affect many guys out there. Today’s quick article will be regarding how to get rid of man boobs.

Now before we begin with solutions to the problem, you have to define what you really have. There is a difference between having actual man boobs and just having chest fat from carrying a few extra pounds. First off, real man boobs, or gynecomastia is a hormonal disorder in the body where more estrogen is produced than testosterone, resulting in an enlarged gland tissue of the male breast, or pec, whatever you wanna call it. This is most likely to occur during puberty and can sometimes carry on into adulthood. Then there is just chest fat that can result in appearing as gynecomastia. Many guys make the mistake of reading an article online and instantly making the assumption that they have man boobs when in actuality, it’s just excess fat on the chest region. Then there are some other guys who actually have man boobs, and the problem although can be minimized, is often not able to be gotten rid of completely without surgical procedures.

The easiest way to tell if you have gynecomastia is that:


-the fat is firm to the touch, not soft and squishy
-you experience tenderness and soreness around the region
-you have puffy nipples
-resembles what a female breast might look like

Now if you happen to have gynecomastia, there isn’t much you can actually do about it. You can continue developing the chest muscles to minimize the look, but you will almost never be able to get rid of it completely, unless you opt for a surgical procedure as I’ve stated above. On the other hand, the good news is that about 95% of the guys that come to me about this problem, or think that they have gynecomastia, just in fact suffer from having excess weight on their body, and that can be helped. Unless you have been experimenting with anabolic steroids, there is a good chance that your hormones are in good order and your problem can be helped. There are 3 things that you can do to get rid of chest fat completely:

1) Work on that diet

I cannot stress this point enough guys. This is the best thing you can do to get rid of your chest fat, is to get on a strict nutrition plan and watch what you eat. If you want to reduce your overall body fat and get rid of your man boobs for good, you’re going to have to change up your eating habits in order to burn off that chest fat.

2) Increase your chest training

Some guys often avoid training chest thinking that it if they increase the mass in their chest that it will amplify the problem. Many guys that have a bit of fat around the nipple area are often lacking in the lower chest region.

3) More cardio

Chest fat is just that. Fat. If you want to burn it off quickly, you’re going to have to implement some sort of cardio routine on top of the diet, if you want to see results as quickly as you can.

For all of you who just have excess chest fat, following these three things will definitely give you the results that you are looking for. If you suffer from gynecomastia on the other hand, these things will help to minimize the look of the man boobs, but unless you see a doctor about it, you most likely will have to deal with it. See you guys in the next article.
