Foods That Help Get Rid Of Man Boobs

Excess upper chest fat is an embarrassing condition that many men endure. Officially called gynocomastia, many people simply refer to this condition as "man boobs." The main issue is, of course, excess body fat, but in particular excess chest fat caused by elevated levels of the female hormone estrogen. Sadly, because gynocomastia is too frequently reduced to being a weight loss issue, too many people believe they can get rid of man boobs solely through dieting.

Fad diets are often used to try to get rid of man boobs. However, dieting primarily targets "visceral fat," which is the fat lying beneath your muscles. Unfortunately, this type of diet will NOT help you eliminate chest fat and reduce your man boobs because the chest fat seen with gynocomastia is "subcutaneous fat," which is fat lying on top of your muscles. Diet does not easily affect visceral fat, and fad diets often make gynocomastia look even worse by eating away at muscle.

Another unfortunate characteristic of excessively restrictive diets is their tendency to cause testosterone levels to drop by as much as thirty percent. This effect can create the same hormone imbalance that gives rise to gynocomastia. If a man has too much body fat and estrogen levels that are too high (or, depending on how you look at it, testosterone levels that are too low) the fat will be stored as chest fat, causing man boobs.

There is, however, some good news. When certain foods are added into your diet they can help you lose chest fat and reduce your man boobs. The foods involved aren't really the type that would come to mind right away, either.

A Mexican "Super Food" to Get Rid of Man Boobs

Avocados contain large amounts of monounsaturated fat, a healthy and useful fat that is essential in testosterone production. Eat one every day. You can make them into guacamole or eat them by themselves. If you don't care for avocados, toss down a handful of nuts every day. Nuts will help you get the same type of beneficial fat.

"Super Foods" that Contain Vitamins and Minerals Help Reduce Man Boobs

Several foods contain the vitamins and minerals that are essential for testosterone production. Your choices include eggs, oysters, garlic and beef. All of them are high in cholesterol, B-vitamins and zinc, which help boost your testosterone production naturally.

Every Man Should Eat These "Wonder Vegetables" to Get Rid of Man Boobs

Every man should eat at least two daily servings of cruciferous vegetables, which include cauliflower, broccoli, turnips, cabbage and kale. Each of these vegetables contains a compound called indole-3 carbinol, or "I3C." Research proves that I3C is able to lower the estrogen levels in your body, naturally allowing additional testosterone to be available to get rid of man boobs.
