Chest Fat – Man Boobs – Moobs
Chest fat, commonly referred to as man boobs or moobs, scientific names are Gynecomastia or Pseudogynecomastia. Gynecomastia is defined as abnormally large breast development in males due to swelling of the mammary gland. It can be one breast or both and sometimes accompanied by pain (mastalgia) in the breast(s). It is caused by a hormonal imbalance of too much estradiol, the female breast growth hormone.
Pseudogynecomastia is breast enlargement due to fat deposited across the entire chest. Basically from being overweight. Fat deposits itself in different areas of the body depending upon sex, genetics, body type, hormonal levels… Pseudogynecomastia also concerns women.
Man boobs or moobs can be caused by either Gynecomastia or Pseudogynecomastia. Depending upon which or both conditions determines how to get rid of man boobs or lose chest fat.
Chest fat due to Gynecomastia must be corrected by hormonal balancing. Estradiol must be reduced and that cannot be achieved by weight loss, diet or exercise. Xenoestogens are are one cause of increased estradiol in males. Xenoestrogens are chemicals that mimic female hormones. BPA or Bisphenol-A is used in plastics as a hardener and has strong estrogen like qualities – the human body cannot tell the difference. 6 billion pounds of BPA are used every year! Detoxing and avoiding BPA is highly advisable.
The main cause of gynecomastia is andropause or male menopause. Generally setting in after the age of 35. Testosterone levels steadily decline after peaking in the early twenties. This gives xenoetrogens like BPA the upper hand. Enlarged breasts is just one symptom. Lack of sex drive, belly fat and prostate cancer are other results of low testosterone.
There is a program that naturally addresses gynecomastia and I highly recommend it if you have any of the above symptoms or if you wish to avoid chest fat and man boobs – moobs altogether. It is:
If you suffer from pseudogynecomastia (chest fat / fat chest), this is dealt with through weightloss / fat loss or plastic surgery. An effective diet is all you need to lose chest fat or get rid of man boobs. Easy diets and the Every Other Day Diet are the most effective diets out there (especially combined). Check them out for yourself and see if they pass the common sense test – they do.
