A common complaint I get is guys tell me they've lost a lot of weight, but they've still got their man boobs.
If you have man boobs and are overweight, then like I tell you in How To Lose Man Boobs Naturally, losing weight will help you to lose man boobs…
…but you've got to go about it the right way.
If you lose weight the way most people tell you to lose weight, then you'll end up instructing your body to hold on to your man boobs, while you shed fat from everywhere ELSE on your body.
Traditional ways to lose weight include doing cardio and going on a low calorie diet.
The idea here is that you burn more calories than you consume.
Though this approach CAN help you to lose body fat, it's a terrible method for losing man boobs.
If you are out to lose man boobs, then you are looking to change the SHAPE of your body by changing your body's fat distribution pattern. You want your body to store less fat on your chest.
So what determines who will store fat on their chest and who will not? What makes one guy grow man boobs, and another grow a large belly while keeping a flat chest?
The answer is HORMONES.
The crucial role hormones play in body fat distribution is no new discovery, since it was described as early as in 1947. In a more recent study in 1991, published in the International Journal Of Obesity, the author stated…
“It seems likely that the resulting effect of the rate of secretion of various steroid hormones, and the local density of their specific receptors, decide the regional distribution of body fat.”
Women store fat mostly in the breasts, hips, thighs and buttocks. This is called “gynoid fat distribution”, and occurs as a result of their naturally high estrogen levels.
Women with unnaturally high levels of the male hormone testosterone (as occurs in polycystic ovarian syndrome, PCOS) are known to develop a masculine pattern of fat distribution – more belly fat, less bum fat.
Men who undergo androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer have reduced levels of testosterone, which is known to result in man boobs and a gynoid body fat distribution.
So it's no secret that hormones play a crucial role in the way fat is distributed around your body.
Going on a low calorie diet and doing cardio, may help you lose weight by forcing your body to give up those fat stores, but they also cause testosterone levels to PLUMMET. Cardio also causes the stress hormone cortisol to chronically increase. Cortisol is an anti-testosterone, and pro-estrogen hormone.
In a 1984 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the hormone levels of 31 male runners (who were running at least 64km per week) were compared with the hormone levels of 18 sedentary controls. Total testosterone levels were found to be lower in the runners than in the sedentary control group who did NO exercise!
Low testosterone and chronically elevated cortisol levels not only causes your body to hold onto your man boobs, it also deals a devastating blow to your health, leaving you prone to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, low energy, decreased libido, etc.
But what if I told you there was a way to BOOST those testosterone levels through exercise? So you not only benefit from an energy boost that lasts all day, with increased libido, reduced chance of heart disease, cancer and diabetes, delayed aging and more, but also get to lose chest fat just as quickly as you lose fat elsewhere on your body.
There's a different type of cardio that helps you get rid of man boobs by boosting your testosterone levels. It's called high intensity interval training (HIIT for short).
Studies have shown that HIIT not only boosts testosterone, but that it is also ninefold more effective than long duration cardio at burning away body fat.
In order to boost testosterone, a HIIT session has to be short. After a short HIIT session, I guarantee you will feel energized and refreshed, rather than beaten down like most people do after a long session of traditional cardio.
I had a quick session of HIIT just yesterday. All I did was 3x 25-second sprints, and I can still feel the energy boost from it today!
If you combine HIIT with a low carb diet, then it will start to blast away those man boobs and get rid of excess body fat like no other exercise you've tried before.
In How To Lose Man Boobs Naturally, I told you about a basic method of HIIT you can start using today.
I've been experimenting with HIIT for quite a few years now, and I've discovered a far more powerful way of doing it. This new style of HIIT, which I call “Paleolithic HIIT”, uses the natural paleolithic rhythm to help further boost those testosterone levels.
Unlike other HIIT programs, which are designed for athletes and only focus on performance, Paleolithic HIIT is designed to maximize man boob reduction and transform your physique by burning fat and boosting muscle growth.
If you start on a Paleolithic HIIT protocol today, then it won't be long before you are donning a lean athletic physique on the beach. Not only will the girls be checking out your physique, but they'll be amazed by all the performance gains you get from this style of training – you'll be able to run faster, jump higher, and hit harder than all of your friends.
