Out of desperation, you must have already searched high and low to find the real effective methods to lose man boobs. The Internet presents you a wide range of techniques courtesy of ‘man boob gurus’ and try each one out only to find out they have no value after all. Gentlemen, information overload can be very bad for your chest and your overall health.
Because your search directs you all over the World Wide Web, chances are, you will stumble upon contradicting facts. We hope the series of myths and facts below could help you figure out the truth.
Let’s move on…
Myth #1: Fat is very bad
Not really, especially for guys who want to lose man boobs. Remember that you are not going on diet to have a six-pack abs but to have a flat chest. Do this after eliminating the moobs. Saturated fat (lipid) or cholesterol is actually testosterone-producing macronutrients. Giving this up completely or even consuming a very small portion of it will cause men to lose one good and highly accessible source of testosterone.
There are two types of man boobs – gynecomastia and pseudo-gynecomastia. The former is characterized by a formation of glandular tissues around a man’s chest causing boob growth while the latter is characterized by the accumulation of fats in the man’s chest causing man boobs.
Nutritionists often proclaim saturated fats as the “bad cholesterol” or low-density lipoprotein (LDL), which endangers the life of people who are at risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. This is actually where the technique gets tricky. If you have gynecomastia and a certain heart problem at the same time, you may not be able to take advantage of the benefits of LDL. Ask your doctor for opinion. Your boobs need them but your heart does not. So, it all boils down to consulting with a specialist before adopting a specific high-fat diet program.
Myth #2: Bean is too mean
Nope! Guys who want to lose man breasts should actually consume the fiber-rich beans otherwise known as legumes but only moderately as they also contain phytoestrogens. The only things you are after with beans are the fiber and protein.
Some health conditions like arthritis or other nerve-related diseases restrict people to consume foodstuff like beans and this helped the veggie earn a bad reputation even if it does help men with particular needs.
Soy is healthy okay, there is no doubt about it, but don’t think that because it is a type of bean, it is good for you. Many people put their faith in soy as the healthiest alternative to milk. Some even switched to tofu as replacement for meat. Consuming soy products in small quantities is fine but making them a part of the daily meal – cereal with milk in the morning, tofu every now and then, etc. – would wreak havoc in the endocrine system. This is based on a series of studies conducted by medical journals in the US, which presented a whopping number of people consuming soy or cow’s milk as infants (20 million). These kids raised on soy milk grew having either allergies or asthma as children and male boobs as teenagers.
Myth #3: Grain is pain
Grains may be one of the best sources of fiber. Many products are made from them such as white bread, pasta, and cereals. Nutritionists also highly recommend this to people who have bad cholesterol problems so many people think that grain is almost flawless. In reality, they are sugars hiding inside morsels. If you love and need fiber, find it somewhere else and not in these specks of lignan containing bird-food. Lignan by the way is a phytoestrogen or a female sex hormone. It is just one of the four types of phytoestrogen present in plants, the other three being isoflavins, saponins, and courmestans. These are not entirely good for boys who are having a tough fight with hormone imbalance.
Modifying your diet is a challenging task and you need to carefully plan your meals, as what could be harmful to your health might also be beneficial to your man boob problem. Sad to say, not everything your doctor says can be followed and getting a second or third opinion would be ideal. If you can find a really smart nutritionist, ask for a sound advice. The best person to go to is definitely one who knows about healthy eating.
In summary, you need to eat a balanced diet to have a balanced production of male hormones. Don’t think you can’t have both – lose man breasts and win optimum health and fitness. The best ways to lose man boobs are to mind what you eat, stick to fibers and a balanced diet, increase your intake of vegetables and minimize fruits (fructose may produce estrogen as well), be watchful when it comes to the products that you use, and to not rush. Things will fall into place, eventually. Losing man breasts and becoming healthy may take months to a year but no matter how long, you should see the improvements if you are following the rules.
