I recently told you about how if you want to lose your man boobs, it's important to make ONE change at a time.
You're more likely to succeed this way, as opposed to being in a huge rush and making every change all at once.
If you want to see FAST results, you have to make the most important changes FIRST.
In most cases I've seen, by far the most important change is DIET, since diet is 85% of the game when it comes to losing man boobs.
There are MANY dietary changes you need to make to lose your man boobs, and here also, you have to make the most important changes first.
One of the most important changes is to eat a low carb diet.
Identify every source of bad carbs in your diet, and take them out one at a time.
Do this, and I promise you you'll see some amazing changes in your chest and in your body as a whole.
But I've told you about carbs before, and today I want to tell you about something else that's very important if you want to get lean and if you want to lose your man boobs.
See, being on the right type of diet will naturally regulate your appetite, so you eat exactly how much you need to eat to be lean.
That's why when you eat the way I show you in How To Lose Man Boobs Naturally, you don't need to count calories.
But it doesn't work if you ARTIFICIALLY inflate how MUCH you eat.
Let me explain what I mean.
Back when I recently started getting fat again, one thing I noticed I was doing wrong, was I was eating too much.
I was eating all the RIGHT foods, but I was eating way too much of it, to the point where I felt uncomfortable and my stomach felt overly full after my meals.
When you overeat, even if you're overeating HEALTHY food, it reduces your testosterone levels, your insulin levels go up, you gain weight, and you grow man boobs.
I realized that the reason I was overeating, was because when I was growing up, I was always told, “DON'T WASTE FOOD”.
I was taught this in school, where the dinner lady would not ALLOW us to leave food on the plate, we had to finish everything, and at times, if the food was particularly bad, we'd secretly throw our leftovers under the table, and show the dinner lady our empty plates.
I was also taught to not waste food by my parents – they told me it isn't good to waste food because there are people starving all over the world, and me wasting food is an injustice to them.
But then, many years ago, I watched this show on losing weight, by a Paul McKenna.
McKenna encouraged us to purposefully leave food on the plate at every meal.
He identified and destroyed the reasoning we've all been taught behind why we should not waste food.
He said, how does US not wasting food help poor people in poor countries?
Not wasting food means we eat too much, means we get fat, and as McKenna said in his show,
“As if US getting fat is going to make THEM feel any better!”
Now, I still don't like wasting food.
Despite what McKenna says, it's still morally unjust to waste food.
So what I do, is every meal, I leave some food on the plate.
But instead of throwing it in the BIN, I save it for later.
When I was getting fat again recently, I realized that I would prepare, say, a huge grilled chicken leg & thigh with a huge serving of veggies for dinner.
I would then finish the whole thing and lick my plate.
It wasn't even just about wasting food, it was about having this goal of finishing everything on my plate for the sake of finishing it.
Those chicken thighs were bloody huge, and every time I finished that meal, I'd feel so full, my stomach was ready to burst.
I ate like this every day, it was a perfectly healthy meal, no sugar, no grain-based carbs, yet I was still fat, and the fat would not budge.
Then I remembered what Paul McKenna taught, and I decided to leave some food on the plate.
I would have the thigh and leave the leg for later.
When I finished the thigh and the veggies, I would look at the remaining chicken leg and know I could finish it. Heck, I even fooled myself into thinking I was still hungry, just so I'd finish the goddamn thing so I wouldn't have go through the hassle of storing it away for later.
But as I've told you before, us naturally fat folk tend to have a DELAYED APPETITE RESPONSE.
It takes a while AFTER we've eaten, for us to realize that we are actually FULL.
(I wrote about the delayed appetite response in an earlier post:
Every time I left that chicken leg aside, several minutes AFTER my meal, I'd realize that “Damn, I'm so full!” And I'm just so glad I didn't eat that leg.
When you do this, when you leave some food on the plate, I'm willing to bet that you'll feel the same.
Leave some food on your plate.
Don't finish it all.
You might still feel hungry, but leave it aside, don't eat it yet.
When you're done, tidy everything up, do the washing, move on with your day.
After a short while, you're likely to suddenly notice that you actually feel REALLY BLOODY FULL, and you're GLAD as hell you didn't finish your plate.
But hey, maybe you miscalculated, maybe you really DID need to finish your meal. So after 10-20 minutes, if you still feel hungry, then you can finish the rest of your meal.
One way you can do it, is prepare your meal, and split it in HALF.
Tell yourself you'll have one half now, and the other half later, any time you feel like it, so long as you give it enough time (10-20 minutes) for that delayed appetite response to kick in.
The rule is that you ONLY have that ONE half now, you FORBID YOURSELF from having the second half straight away, no matter how hungry you feel. If you are still hungry 10-20 minutes after you've finished the first half, THEN you can eat the second half of your meal.
If you're like me and you lack will power, you might find yourself still finishing your plate, despite what I've just told you in today's post.
Just keep in mind what I've told you, and one day, you'll DO IT.
One day you'll LEAVE SOME FOOD ON THE PLATE.
That one day you do it, you'll realize how GOOD it feels when you LEAVE SOME FOOD ON THE PLATE.
Your body will feel light, you won't feel overly full, and you'll feel a sense of satisfaction from knowing that you have that extra level of self control to be able to leave some food on the plate.
When you've done it once, it gets much easier to be able to do it again.
You might not do it again in your next meal, or the meal after, but you'll do it again soon. Then you'll do it yet again even sooner, and again, and again, until you're leaving food on your plate almost every meal, and you've got total control over how much you eat.
Over time your appetite response will become more accurate and less and less delayed, your body will tell you when you need to stop, and it will tell you before it's too late.
That's when the magic of a low carb diet will take hold, your body will totally lean down, your chest will flatten out, and it won't even feel like you're trying.
Give this a go, and see how you get on.
