Well for starters, it’s important to distinguish a few things. There are two medical terms the practitioners use in the field of diagnosis (Lipomastia & Gynecomastia). Each of these terms refers to a different root cause so understanding where you stand medically will help determine your recovery route.
Let’s cover both ends, starting with the more typical condition known as lipomastia (Pseudogynecomastia).
Treating Chest Fat (Lipomastia)
Individuals who have concluded that their “moobs” are lipid-induced will want to start implementing a cardio routine as well as a chest targeted work out. The cardio will serve to reduce the chest mass while the chest targeted exercises will serve to bring out the masculinity of the male chest.
There are a few things you can do to help your body process your carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Supplementing properly remains the number one way of getting the most out of your exercise (at home or gym) and weight loss.
It’s common nowadays to find individuals putting together their own home blends, many of which have yielded great results! Look into combining Zinc Picolinate and Acetyl-L-Carnitine; these two synergize very well and should help you fast track your chest reduction.
Several natural blends are available on the market many of which are designed to help you lose weight. Always read reviews and exercise due diligence to determine if the claims are founded. Avoid turning to high powered diet drugs. This will only prove detrimental to your health as a whole in the long run.
Here are a few things you should be making sure to follow:
- Regulate your insulin: this tricks the body into not craving foods.
- Implement a low-fat diet
- Avoid excessive sugar consumption
- Avoid alcohol consumption
- Avoid excessive gluten consumption or cut it all out together (highly underrated)
- Exercise: cardio and chest workouts (start slow)
- Get good sleep (REM sleep induces growth hormones to produce testosterone and glutathione)
The time it takes to reach your desired chest size will depend upon two primary factors such as the severity of your condition as well as how committed you are to overcome your condition.
Stay focused and determined, you’ll thank yourself down the line. Stick to your goals and let your friends and loved ones know you are changing your diet and lifestyle. These are the people who will get behind you and catch you if you fall. Support should never be underestimated!
Treating Gynecomastia (Hormonal Imbalance)
This condition deals with excessive production or build up of estrogen.
It’s important to resolve this form of gynecomastia ASAP before any fibrous tissue starts to build up. An invasive surgical procedure may be required in order to remove the benign proliferation of the male breast glandular tissue.
Ask your doctor to help you rule out what possible reasons may be contributing to your excessive estrogen production or build up. He will inquire about your diet and ask you if you take any medication or drugs. It’s important that you tell him the truth so that he can make a proper assessment. Some medications and recreational drugs, for instance, can increase your bodies estrogen levels.
There are also many external factors that contribute to estrogen build ups. Some modern contributors listed below can easily end up in our water, food, and air supply ultimately accumulating in our bodies.
- Drugs (recreational and medicinal)
- Xenoestrogens (synthetic estrogens)
Our goal here is to clean up and rid breast receptor sites of excess estrogen. Both foreign and unwanted endogenous hormones can be expelled through the proper use of compounds that specifically target toxins and bad estrogen.
We highly recommend accomplishing this by supplementing with the natural anti-estrogenic compound Gynectrol. (Read More About Gynectrol)
This cleansing process works even better when we maintain an optimal liver with adequate glutathione levels. Glutathione is by far the bodies most important self-synthesized compound and compliments Gynectrol mechanism of action against gynecomastia and high levels of estrogen.
Overexpression/Underexpression Of Breast Receptor Sites
In some cases, your endocrinologist will tell you that your hormone levels look fine, but keep in mind that there’s no way for them to tell if your breast receptors sites are over-expressing estrogen or even under-expressing testosterone.
Another form of over-expression involves the enzyme called aromatase. This enzyme is found in several parts of the body, particularly the subcutaneous chest fat. Aromatase prompts the adipose tissue (chest fat) to act as a secretory gland. Note that aromatase has only one function, and that is to convert androgens into estrogens.
It can also be that your breast receptor sites are clogged up with 16-α hydroxy estrone which leads to under-expression in testosterone. Look at supplements like Gynectrol pills to help you clear those receptor sites.
See a doctor if you think you might have any form of gynecomastia. It’s probably a good idea to get referred to an endocrinologist so that they can check your hormones that regulate your metabolism, growth, tissue function, and sexual functions. Your health care practitioner will be able to tailor a solution specifically suited for you.
Remember that trained professionals may often be the first line of defense in preventing male breast cancer so don’t be shy and get yourself checked.
