I was just doing some research and I was reminded about leptin.
Leptin is a hormone released by fat cells.
The fatter you get, the more leptin your body produces.
Studies show that fat people have more leptin in their blood than skinny people.
One role leptin plays is it suppresses the hunger center in your brain, so you don't eat yourself to death.
So the fatter you get, the more leptin you produce, and the more your body is told (by the leptin) to STOP EATING.
From knowing, this, people have started to take leptin supplements to try to lose weight.
Fat people have more leptin than skinny people do, so obviously, all that extra leptin isn't really helping fat people get slim, so why the hell would you take a leptin supplement?
Leptin may suppress the hunger center in your brain, but there's a lot of other shit that leptin does that can make you gain weight and specifically make you grow man boobs.
In obesity, leptin is the main cause of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress causes weight gain via multiple different mechanisms.
Leptin also promotes the growth of cancer cells. Would you risk getting cancer, just to lose weight?
Leptin is also known to increase estrogen receptor signaling. Meaning it likely also makes you grow man boobs!
So even if leptin DOES help you lose weight, you're more likely than ever to lose weight everywhere BUT from your chest.
I was reminded about leptin while reading this 2019 study on turmeric, which found turmeric not only reduces body mass index, weight, and waist-circumference, but it also reduces leptin levels.
So turmeric not only helps you lose man boobs by directly blocking estrogen receptors itself, but it also lowers levels of breast growth promoting leptin.
My new favorite way to take turmeric is turmeric coffee.
By combining this with Hewis & Selby's turmeric supplement, I'm losing more weight and keeping my chest flat with less exercise and more cheating in my diet (all due to lockdown).
So I highly recommend it. Give this combo a try, do it for at least 6 weeks, and you're highly likely to see results in both your chest AND your belly.
P.S. The only way you're going to take turmeric coffee every day for 6 weeks and longer, is if you actually enjoy it and look forward to it every morning.
So please don't see it as a chore. Find a way to make it taste good for you – by playing around with different types of milk, differenct amounts of milk vs water, different amounts and types of coffee, and different amounts of a healthy sweetener.
Heck, you can even get different types of turmeric. The Indian stuff is too much like ginger, while the stuff from Thailand is much more pleasant in tea/coffee.
P.P.S. The added supplement really does give a much needed boost in your results. I can only recommend the Hewis & Selby one, that's the only one that works for me.
