THE MOOBS: How to Get Rid of Your Man Boobs

Published on May 14, 2014

Why do you have man boobs and how the hell can you get rid of them?

Moobs are primarily a layer of fat that sets over the pectoral muscle, there is gynecomastia, which we’ll cover soon, but the majority of moobs are simply a matter of not being able to remove that fat from the body.

There are two primary mistakes guys make as soon as they begin to develop man boobs.

Mistake #1: They cut calories.

By cutting calories you increase your cortisol levels. Cortisol is a stress hormone and one that makes you hold on to and store more body fat while burning more muscle. When you start losing muscle you negatively effect your insulin health, that is, your body’s ability to use carbs as fuel rather than storing them as fat.

Mistake #2: They cut out dietary fats.

Here’s where the big mistake is made. Basically every nutritional source our there is telling you to ease up on eating red meats and saturated fats and anything that contains that latter if you want to stay healthy and burn fat.

And so, you eat “healthy fats” in moderation, like those found in fish and nuts and avocados and so forth, but you don’t eat saturated fats. Well, fats of all kinds, those that help your body produce cholesterol, actually help you produce testosterone as well. And as you remove your body’s building blocks for producing testosterone you begin to store even more fat in that special area.
