Q & A - How to get rid of gynecomastia ( man boobs )



This is a question off my youtube account that I get on a weekly basis....

I had like the same body as you before and i started working out and dieting and lost a lot of weight. But I still have my man boobs! how did you finally get rid of yours! THANKS MAN!!!!

Answer:  The best way I have found to get rid of man boobs is to cut your calories in order to shed the fat in the area. But it doesn't stop there.  You should also incorporate weight training and focus heavily on the chest and upper/middle back in order to tone the area.


If you are new to weight lifting it will even be possible to add muscle to the two areas which will stretch the skin and distribute the fat more evenly among the area thus flattening the chest.

I hope this helps!

  1. Hey, thanks for sharing. I was ABOUT to ask the same question. I find you blog story very motivational. Congrats for all that you have accomplished. I went from a fat kid too on my 17 to a "wealth" person in one year. Drooped over 40 pounds and stretched about 5 inches. Went straight from fat kid to tall thin teen. Girls loved so much that I got some right away. I eventually got married, had a kid and now I have the same problem again. I´m 29 now and after 6 years of marriage I´m over 88 pounds my old 18 great looks weight. I need to do it all over again and this time in double and no growing to help. Thanks for your time, hope you keep active!

    1. If it's fat, then you have to lose more fat by diet and working out. If its loose skin, that is really hard to lose and it takes a long time. It's a combination of diet and exercise and sometimes that won't even do it all the way. I still have loose skin around my stomach myself. I suggest you talk to your doctor for some professional ideas and guidance.

  5. put Stomach fat in the search box in the right column for lots of info on that subject. It is a combination of cutting calories and exercise.

  6. I am 51 and have been battling weight for almost 40 years to varying degrees of success. I did get to where I wanted to be but then hurt my self to the point of having to go on disability, probably for ever. I got depressed, couldn't exercise and fell back to my eating to feel better, which of course doesn't work. I gain upwards of 200 Lbs. I am 6'2 1/2" tall and have a long torso and not so long legs so can carry quite a bit of weight. I have the typical German, Dutch, Irish build with a wide waist, back, and shoulders. When in shape my waist is still wide bit I am thin front to back, Like a 34"-36" waist at 200-220 Lbs. depending on how much muscle I am carrying. I put a post on you U-tube page BTW. I just want to say that you are fortunate to have taken care of this at such a young age and that if there is one piece of good advice I can give you it is to be consistent. Don't yo-yo with your weight. If you find that your lifestyle changes and you can't exercise as much then eat less. There is no worse thing than gaining and loosing size. Your skin will became less elastic as you age and you will not be able to get rid of extra skin without surgery, man-boobs, stomach skin, etc. You are a true inspiration for me, even at 50+ years old. I printed a couple of pics of you before and after for the refrigerator and one for the mirror. I am not obsessed with you or anything, it is just to remind me that I once did it and can do it again. I am over half way there and am determined to get all of the way there, little by little, day by day, hour by hour minute by minute. You know how it can be on stressful days I am sure. Remember that although having muscle helps burn calories, if you ever decide to go down in weight and loose some of it, it is just like losing fat except that your body only gets a little less than half the energy from a pound of muscle than it does from fat so it's quite a bit easier to loose muscle weight than fat weight. At your age you are probably thinking that you will never want to get rid of any of your hard earned muscle, but believe me, as you get older chances are your outlook on your body and it's composition will most likely change. It takes quite a bit of work and eating to maintain large amounts of muscle, especially when you get to be 45+ years old. Personally I think you look GREAT now and your body build would serve you well into your 60's or 70's or beyond! I do actually know a lot about nutrition and the science behind it so of you have any questions e-mail me at bfburkejr@live.com if you want. If you do want to ask me anything, I'll give you my private e-mail address if you promise not to post it on line. Well, that's all I have to say, probably too much anyway. Best of luck in life and fitness! Hope to hear from you someday. You truly are an inspiration.
    Peace,

    1. I had trouble getting rid of stomach fat and did a lot of cardio. I really do a combination of good diet, weight lifting and cardio on the treadmill.
