The kind of diet that works best for losing man boobs and also happens to work best for generalized body fat reduction, is a grain-free diet, where you avoid stuff like rice, pasta, cakes, biscuits and bread.
Why are grains bad if you want to lose man boobs?
Grain Problem #1: Too carb-dense
Carbohydrates regulate the hormone insulin more than any other macronutrient.
Insulin is by far the most important fat storage hormone there is.
The more carbs you eat, the more insulin in your body. The more insulin in your body, the fatter you get.
Have you realized how ever since the low-fat movement in the late 1970's, the world has been getting fatter? That's because most of that fat has been replaced by carbs.
Low fat foods contain more carbs than do full fat foods.
When you sit down to eat a low fat meal, you're likely going to take in more carbs.
But carbohydrates do more than just make you fat.
They also give you man boobs via the following mechanisms:
- Directly reduce testosterone (low testosterone is a major cause of man boobs)
- Increase inflammation (inflammation is associated with low testosterone and fat accumulation)
- Increase insulin resistance (also associated with low testosterone and fat accumulation)
Grain Problem #2: Contain toxic anti-nutrients like lectins, gluten and phytates
Anti-nutrients cause disease, and phytates in particular, make vitamins and minerals less bio-available.
A high vitamin and mineral profile in your diet plays an important role in helping to normalize your hormone levels, so you can get rid of your man boobs.
You should mostly stick to meat, fish, eggs, nuts and seeds for your fat and protein source, and fruits'n veggies for your good carbs, fiber and vitamins & minerals.
Most of the time, when you sit down to eat, you should have on your plate, a moderate amount of flesh (meat or fish), and a HUGE serving of vegetables.
When I sat down today to have one of my typical grain-free meals, here's what I had:
See how most of my plate is taken up by veggies?
(In all honesty, my vegetable portion should have been bigger (and preferably more varied), but I couldn't be bothered, and this is good enough.)
If I had to pit vegetables against meat, I would say vegetables are healthier. This is because veggies generally contain more vitamins and minerals and more fiber than meat/fish.
But for ideal health, and for the most effective man boob reduction, you'd include some flesh in there too. Because meat'n fish contain important fats and proteins that vegetables don't.
Studies show that vegetarians have lower testosterone levels than non-vegetarians, and I've had my fare share of vegetarian clients who have had trouble getting rid of man boobs because they couldn't up their testosterone.
So, what I want to get across to you today, is:
- Eat the flesh'n veg diet
- Have more veg on your plate than flesh
