How to get rid of Man Boobs
We have lots of men visit us at The Body Clinic concerned about their “moobs” and asking us how to get rid of man boobs. Many guys are keen to find a non-surgical treatment to reduce the size of their chest, avoiding the risks, costs and recovery time associated with surgical male breast reduction.
Man boobs can be caused by one of two problems or a combination of both. Problem one is a medical condition called gynecomastia. This is when a man develops breast tissue, the condition could be caused by hormonal imbalances. Whilst it’s not a serious health problem, men can find it extremely embarrassing and affect their confidence. Sometimes gynecomastia can go away by itself but it’s always worth having it checked out by a doctor who can advise you of how best to treat it.
The second reason men develop man boobs is due to excess fat stored around the chest area. This often coincides with weight gain due to an unhealthy diet and lack of exercise.
In some cases, there could be a combination of both increased male breast tissue and increased body fat around the chest area.
How To Reduce Chest Fat
The best way to reduce chest fat is to first look at your weight, eating habits and exercise routines. If you are weighing heavier than you should be or guilty of eating an unhealthy diet and not doing any exercise, then this should be your starting point for improving your physique.
As always, improve your diet by cutting out the “crap”. Reduce sugars, processed goods and foods that are high in fat and salt. Say no to those weekly takeaways and cut out the booze.
Replace your unhealthy diet with healthy choices, lean meats, fruit and veg, nuts, healthy carbs and wholegrains. Plus, increase your water intake to 2.5 litres a day. This will help you shed the pounds.
Exercise wise you should be strength training as well as cardio as this accelerates fat loss and increases your metabolism.
Strength exercises such as press ups, chest press and dumbbell fly will help to tone up your pec muscles.
