How to get rid of your man boobs..
Seems harsh but man boobs are a thing and are fairly common, this is worrying as men are turning into women, literally!
What I mean by this is that the hormone estrogen, found in higher amounts in women is higher than testosterone in men for man boobs to occur. Men do have some estrogen in their bodies although the bodycan convert testosterone to estrogen, if the enzyme aromatase is activated, which if you are looking to build muscle tissue and burn fat mass is not ideal.
Testosterone is one of the key hormone’s in the body to build muscle tissue, alongside IGF and insulin. The higher the concentration of free testosterone in the blood makes it easier for you to grow lean muscle mass, but if that free or total testosterone levels are low, it could be a sign that it is being converted into estrogen. This will then have an impact on the rate of fat loss for both males and females because the amount of muscle tissue you have affects metabolism.
How do you get man boobs
There are a few ways in which testosterone can be convert to estrogen and then can start to develop man boobs –
- Drinking beer regularly
- Not doing any form of resistance training
- Food high in sugar and trans-fat
- If you are overweight
- Low in Vitamin D and Zinc
Tackling these will help increase the body’s natural production of testosterone and help reduce the fat around the pecs, giving you that shredded/lean chest.
How to improve your chest muscles
The best way to improve your man boobs and get a toned, shredded chest that you want, is to lift weights at the gym and improve your lifestyle habits to drop body fat and improve your overall health.
Start by training consistently at the gym 3 to 4 times a week, doing full body resistance training workouts, hitting all muscle groups. Also, start being mindful of your nutrition choices, having more vegetables throughout the day, eating protein at every meal and drinking less alcohol.
Start with the above, this will improve your health which is more important and then your body shape will start to change in time. Get consistent at the basics first, then you can start looking further into stress management and any vitamin or mineral deficiencies you might have to help get rid of those man boobs once and for all.
