Discoverying how to lose chest fat mandates the identification of the specific cause(s) of your condition and subsequently addressing these causes in a way that has helped other men to lose their gynecomastia.
The cause of gynecomastia can be boiled down to the two main sex hormones - estrogen and testosterone High estrogen and/or low testosterone can lead to gynecomastia. Levels of estrogen and testosterone can be altered in this way by certain environmental triggers.
Estrogen and testosterone are both sex hormones that control sexual characteristics in men and women. Where testosterone gives men their extra muscle mass and body hair, estrogen is responsible for female characteristics such as growing breasts. If for whatever reason these levels are altered and a man finds himself with too much estrogen and lowered levels of testosterone, it will result in the development of breasts.
Factors that cause a guy to develop breasts can be classed in one of the below categories
Certain health conditions
Certain medical drugs
Causes of the environment
Hormonal fluctuations that happen during puberty
If you really are considering treating your gynecomastia naturally I urge you get a full check-up by your doctor to make sure your man boobs aren't being triggered by some form of internal hormone-altering disease. While youíre there your doctor will also examine you to see if you have any glandular tissue, for which you WILL eventually need surgery.
Most cases however, are due to a natural hormonal imbalance. Hence, reducing man boobs naturally, by addressing these causative environmental factors, is usually the first course of action for a guy to take. And even if your doctor does say that you need surgery, your best course of action would be to reduce your man boobs FIRST using natural methods.
I won't lie to you and tell you that pharmaceutical drugs don't work. The fact is that they do, yet it comes with unwanted side-effects and it isn't the first option I would go for, given that there are natural methods that are far MORE powerful than medical drugs like tamoxifen.
Estrogen in the present day, is the most common culprit when it comes to man boobs, with a worldwide availability of excess estrogens in water and food. Estrogen is also abundant in the air in busy cities where car exhausts leave behind particles that make their way into your body through your lungs and exert an estrogen-like effect.
For the purposes of getting rid of man boobs however, one important thing to do is to reduce your body's exposure to these environmental estrogens, but if you want to get the best results in the shortest time-span possible, you would also need to add in extra active strategies (on top of the former avoidance strategies) on bringing estrogen levels right down in your body.
These methods include both dietary tactics and exercises that when combined, can eliminate male breasts in just a few short weeks.
