Back when I was fat and doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to try and lose weight, there was this other fat guy who was doing the sport for the same reason.
After about 6 to 7 months of us both doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, neither of us were any slimmer.
I still had my man boobs and had no idea how to get rid of them.
But After Around The 7th Month, Something Remarkable Happened To The Other Fat Guy.
Let's call him Sam.
One day, Sam came in and he was leaner than when I last saw him.
The next time I saw him he was leaner still, until soon enough, within a span of 3-4 weeks, he was totally lean!
Even though I was fat back then, I knew almost everything about fitness and nutrition. Despite being the fat one, I was the one everyone in the dojo came to for advice on fitness and nutrition.
But when I saw how lean Sam had become, I had to swallow my pride and ask him how he did it.
His answer was something so simple, that it felt kinda stupid.
If Sam didn't have the results to back it up, I probably would have given him a sympathetic smile along with several reasons why his method wouldn't work.
But clearly it WAS working for him.
So what was it?
What was the one thing this guy was doing that finally made his body respond to his workouts?
Here it is…
He was taking a type of natural supplement that a lot of people take when trying to build muscle.
But what most people DON'T know about this supplement, is that it can also help you lose weight.
Fewer still know that it can also help you get rid of man boobs.
Here's how it does this:
- This natural supplement helps you build muscle and boost performance. Bigger muscles and better exercise performance means bigger post-exercise testosterone boosts, which means more fat burning, especially in the chest area.
- This supplement is rich in the amino acid Leucine, which stimulates fatty acid oxidation.
- Studies show that this particular supplement helps reduce your appetite by increasing satiety.
- There are direct weight loss studies that show this supplement helps you to lose weight.
In a study at the University of Oklahoma, subjects were split into two groups. Both groups had the same diet and the same workout routine. The only difference was one group was taking this supplement, and the other group was not.
By the end of the 12-week study, the group taking the supplement had lost more fat and grown more muscle than the group not taking the supplement.
- A 2007 study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, showed that this supplement helps reduce the female hormone estrogen in your body. This change is HUGE when it comes to losing man boobs.
What is this supplement?
It's whey protein.
Studies show that taking a whey protein supplement before, during and/or after a weight training workout, can help you build more muscle than if you did the same workout without whey protein.
If you're doing any kind of weight training, you definitely should be taking some whey protein. It boosts your results with ZERO added effort.
When you take this stuff, you get more from your workouts.
Even if you're not interested in growing muscle, we know that whey protein also helps you burn fat AND lose man boobs.
What's The Best Type Of Whey Protein To Take?
I reveal one of my favorite brands of whey on the following article, and explain what makes it so good:
Taking the right TYPE of whey protein makes a big difference, especially if you have man boobs.
The wrong types of whey can contain high levels of estrogen, which will will end up making your man boobs bigger.
Standard cheap whey protein concentrates contain too much milk residue, and they are made from milk taken from cows that are often treated with hormones and are milked during pregnancy when their estrogen levels are up to 33 times higher than milk from non-pregnant cows.
Though whey protein isolates are better (because they contain less milk residue), they're still not ideal, because they are usually made using the harsh process of ion exchange filtration, which denatures (damages) the protein itself and destroys the bioactive stuff in whey that makes it so healthy.
When I personally switched to the right type of whey protein, my weight loss results soared, and I could even feel its effects on reducing my man boobs.
The right type of whey protein is one that's cold-processed; is filtered using the more modern method of cross flow micro filtration; is non-GMO and organic; and from grass-fed cows.
Here's a good example:
The other thing to watch out for is added chemicals like sweeteners, preservatives, and artificial flavor enhancers. A lot of this stuff ends up killing your precious testosterone levels, meaning you don't get the full benefit from the protein shake.
You want the cleanest, purest whey protein you can find.
A Quick Word Of Warning
Whey protein works by boosting the results from your workouts.
It's not a magic powder.
If you don't work out, don't waste your money on whey protein.
Also, no supplement in the world can undo a bad diet.
You should only take whey protein AFTER you've started training and AFTER you've started to fix up your diet.
Then, taking a good whey protein will help boost your results.
So, do you take protein shake? How do you take it and what brands have worked well for you? Post a comment in the comments box below and let's get talking :)
If you want a recommendation for a good whey protein, here's the one Sam used.
Sam told me his fat started to melt away so quickly, it almost felt like he was taking some special weight-loss powder.
But we know that's not true. There's nothing magical about whey protein, it only worked so well for Sam because he was already getting in great workouts and was sorting out his diet.
The whey protein was just the catalyst he needed to really transform his body fast.
Don't expect any miracles, but if all else is in place, DO expect to be surprised.
