Most people are not aware that you can’t spot-lose weight from any one part of your body. In other words, you can’t lose fat from anywhere without losing it from the rest of your body.
Unfortunately, the popular myth is simply not true that ‘exercising the chest alone will reduce or get rid of man boobs’. If the problem is the fat on top, the moobs will just sit on top of a more-exercised chest. What is needed is a two-pronged attack. And the first thing is …Reduce your carbohydrate consumption.
Generally, slim men don’t have man boobs. The vast majority of men with man boobs I have seen were overweight. So getting on a suitable diet regime will not only help you get rid of your man boobs but may also help you improve your overall health to the degree that even your life span could be lengthened.
There are thousands of diet plans around. They’re not all fads. Getting rid of that excess flab from around your chest is only a matter of finding a plan that suits your present lifestyle.
Whatever diet plan you choose, most experts agree that taking a natural appetite suppressor such as hoodia gordinii or a metabolism enhancer like Yi-Wu tea can help you Lose weight faster. For best results, a combination of both an appetite suppressor and a metabolism enhancer like that found in Acai Burn will give you maximum weight loss in minimum time!
Now that you have a suitable diet, you can speed up the weight loss by incorporating a simple exercise program to help burn off the excess flab quicker and also replace it with muscle.
It is a fact that by working the bigger muscle of your anatomy (gluteals, quadriceps, etc) you will burn more calories than by working the smaller muscles.
Exercises don’t have to be fancy. Many of the simplest exercises are the 5-star ones which, when performed in conjunction with a good diet plan, will put you well on your way to getting rid of your man boobs.
Brisk walking or jogging is maybe the simplest. It can be done nearly anywhere and needs no special equipment except a suitable pair of running shoes. You can even make it more effective in burning off those ‘moobs’ by walking or jogging on soft ground like grass or trails (or even sand) rather than on sidewalks or hard paths. Consider using small strapped weights on wrists and ankles for a more powerful ‘burn’.
Swimming is a very effective way to get that excessive flab off because it builds chest-muscle too. It’s a great all-over toner. Also, because water supports your joints while you’re exercising, swimming is ideal if you are heavily overweight and don’t want to risk injury through running straight away.
Training with weights is a fantastic way to put you chest back into shape. Think ‘pecs’ not ‘moobs’! Remember: always start with low weights and high repetitions (the ‘calorie-killer’ which also acclimatises your muscles), then gradually build up to heaver weights and low repetitions (for building muscle). Important note! For weight loss, you should pay attention to working the larger muscles in the body because will they burn more calories rather than just the smaller muscles: ie, strange as it may seem, leg exercises are more effective for losing chest flab than chest exercises. Free weights and kettlebells can also be highly efficient burners of fat.
Bear in mind that body muscle weighs more than fat, so if you get seriously into body-building you may actually gain weight – but it will be lean, sculpted weight, which you want.
If you can’t be doing with gym membership but you want excellent results, think about an organised home exercise regime. A few kettlebells of your own in varying sizes along with a decent instruction video can give you top-notch cardio and strength training without leaving the house! As with other weights, start off with smaller kettlebells and higher reps, then move up to larger kettlebells gradually.
As you can see there is no great secret or mystery of how to get rid of man boobs. It’s largely just a question of how to get rid of excesses calories and build a better shape.
