What is the best and fastest way to lose man boobs? I used to do a lot of reps benching and tons of pushups but it didnt help. I want to look into some supplements for fat burning but I don't want any weird side effects. Also would changing my diet help? I wouldnt call myself a healthy eater, but I don't eat a lot. Any advice for this would really help.
 
first thing, get your diet down. Everything else comes after.
 
Hey man -- There is no such thing as spot reduction, that's why those high rep bench presses and pushups aren't working. You need to evaluate your diet. Eat lean - brown rice, green vege, chicken/steak, wheat pasta, fruit etc. - Figure out what your active metabolic rate is and eat 500 calories less than that amount (per day).

Cardio is essential as well. Running, biking, whatever. At least 4x per week. Keep doing the weights too. It's hard work and it will take some time.

And don't waste your money on supplements. They don't work effectively.

Check your diet to make sure you aren't inhibiting testosterone and promoting estrogen.
Alcohol promotes man-boobs big time by reducing testosterone levels.
Do you also have rosey cheeks? That sounds funny but I'm serious. Rosey cheeks are a sign of high estrogen levels also. There may be something in your diet throwing off your natural hormonal balance.
 
Did you roid?
 
To lose fat from anywhere on the body you have to have a good diet and do plenty of cardio. Cardio training can be done in a variety of ways, running, bike, rowing machine, cross trainer, just nto name a few. The cardio should last 30 minutes to 45 minutes minimum and be done several times per week. Once you are coping with that add in some interval training as part of your cardio training.

When you lose bodyfat due to training the fat is taken from all over the body, so remember there is no such thing as 'spot reduction' meaning that even if you do a hundred or a thousand push ups a day you may still not lose the fat on your chest. Therefore choosing a cardio exrecise that works as much of the body at once is helpful, I find a rowing machine is one of the best.

However if you have previously had a hormone imbalance (there can be a number of reasons for having an imbalance) than reducing the appearence of "man boobs" may require surgery.

yep, i can relate to the hormone imbalance....tho i was young at the time and now i seem to have "levelled" out.
 
Hormones are off.
Check with your doc.
You're estrogen dominate perhaps?

ive still got them, but i worked the upper part of my chest a lot, got off the greasy food and exercised more...my weight dropped..and you cant tell...well..unless you're touching my chest! lol.

doc said i could have surgery, but i was still growing at the time and those scars would have been there forever.

Good advice from all.

Cardio, Healthy and lean diet, and forget the supplements. Supplements are for those who can't do it by themselves. Flamesuit on.
 
yea i am gonna go to the doctor and get it checked out, but i think its cause i have a big gut to, but like when some body hits me in my chest like my man boobs hurt, don't know why.

Ditto. Take care man. Chances are goood that it may be just hormones and a good training regiment is able to change your whole body to a much healthier state that may get rid of your moobs and whatever pain you have.
