The most important thing to take away from this lesson is that you learn the foods that raise estrogen levels.
Don’t take the title of this article too literally. Obviously, it’s not like you’ll eat some obscure food and wake up the next morning with Gynecomastia. Foods that bring on Man Boobs, do so by raising estrogen levels, causing your body to store fat cells behind the nipples and around the breast tissue.
When you’re trying to lose man boobs, the whole point is to tone and burn your pectorals, working off that fatty tissue and replacing it with a tighter and more toned chest. If you’re eating foods that raise estrogen levels, you’ll be unknowingly working against your main goal.
So here I’ll be listing the foods that will naturally raise your body’s estrogen levels or reduce your body’s testosterone levels and make it harder to burn chest fat. These tips not only apply to those with Gynecomastia, but also to those with Pseudogynecomastia because I include fatty foods in the “avoid it” list.
In case you’ve forgotten what Pseudogynecomastia is, it’s Man Boobs caused by an overall excess amount of body fat rather than hormonal imbalances. People with Pseudogynecomastia should still avoid the foods mentioned below while they are on their weight loss regimen. The results will be much faster when you’re fueling your body the right way. So without further ado…
Foods that Sabotage a Gynecomastia Diet
Soy proteins contain isoflavones that can mimic a weak oestrogen effect. It’s not the same as the oestrogen the body makes – it is 1,000 times weaker than the body’s oestrogen. However, continued intake of such foods does add up.
Stay far away from soy protein while you’re losing Man Boobs. Yes, soy protein is very heart healthy and I have nothing against the food in general. However, it has been proven to raise estrogen levels. Soy milk, soy beans like Edimame, Bodybuilding Soy Protein Shakes, or even many market variety snacks should be avoided.
I used to binge on soy chips and Odwalla fruit juices at work and later found out they were loaded to the gills with soy. Cut out these culprits fast.
I know this is a tough one to accept, but while you are losing chest fat, you’ll simply need to forgo red meat. It’s simply too fatty for the diet you’re trying to follow. The idea here is to get ripped and red meat just doesn’t fit into that lifestyle.
You can have a lean piece of red meat every once in a while, but I recommend you stick to fish, chicken, turkey, egg whites and lean cuts of pork while you’re on the Gynecomastia Diet.
Beer & Wine
Just forget about it for a while – no exceptions. If you want to switch to vodka that’s acceptable in small doses, but the fact is alcohol will only set you back. Until your body is a fat burning machine, don’t slow down your progress with these vises.
By subtracting alcohol from your diet, you’ll see results MUCH FASTER. The wasteful calories that come along with drinking can have you sabotage all your hard days work of exercise and eating right in just one night. Don’t fall victim to this big no no.
Okay, well technically it’s not a food, but marijuana will definitely work against you when it comes to burning chest fat. Marijuana has been proven to increase the size of fat cells in men and women.
It also lowers testosterone levels which in effect creates a higher estrogen rich environment in the body. The effect? You guessed it, more fat store creation in the chest and breast area. No good.
This is just plain common sense. You shouldn’t be munching on salty potato chips and cartons of ice cream. Keep trim and toned and you won’t be giving your body any excuses to pack on additional fat.
Starting to get the feeling that this takes some effort on your part? Well, duh! There’s no overnight solution, but by following these guidelines you’ll totally see faster results. Really, it just takes hard work and consistency. Eat right, exercise, use a supplement like Gynexin and in short time, your Man Boobs will be history. That’s all it is. Simple. Now good luck and go to it!
