Finding out how to lose man breast fat is something millions of men are right now desperate to do yet just a few generations ago man boobs were practically unheard of. Many experts agree this is due to Oestrogen pollution and the use of Xenoestrogens in modern products such as plastics which are believed to increase estrogen and lower testerone.
Estrogen is the female sex hormone while testerone is the male sex hormone so its clear to see the implications for men if one is increased while the other is lowered.
An obvious way to learn how to lose man boobs is to try and counter the inbalance of estrogen and testerone by making a positive changes to your diet.
Avoid foods that are known to increase estrogen such as grapefruit, any soy products and unfortunately hops which means if you really want to know how to get rid of your man boobs you are going to have to learn to cut out the beer!
Eat foods that are known to burn off any extra estrogen such as cauliflower or broccoli. Often, lowering your estrogen levels is enough to increase your testerone levels but you can also help increase levels with zinc rich foods such as nuts, chicken, eggs and steak.
You will also want to do a workout program that targets your upper body to turn your flabby chest into muscle and after a good workout you are likely to find that you will be famished which is another good reason to change your eating habits for the better. No point in doing a workout if you are then going to counter the positive effects by eating junk.
What your body and muscles will need when you are exercising is fuel – but not just any fuel. Protein is the main building block of muscles, so in order to have the energy to remove the fat and the fuel to build muscle, you need to eat protein.
It is vital that you choose the right foods that are high in protein. By choosing the right foods that are high in protein, you will not only increase your overall health but you will be helping your body repair and build muscle as efficiently as possible.
Eating more protein will also have the side benefits of increasing your metabolism which will help you melt unwanted fat off your chest and a great bonus for men wanting to lose man breast fat is that most of the foods in a high protein diet just happen to be known to increase testerone levels.
What Are the Best High Protein Foods?
The foods that are the best sources of protein will have high amounts of quality protein and they will also be low in saturated fat. Whenever quality and protein is talked about in the same sentence, think of “complete proteins”.
Complete proteins contain all of the required amino acids that the body needs for repairing and building new muscle.
In addition to being the best muscle repairing foods, complete proteins have a high biological value or as I call it, a high BV rating.
With the risk of boring you, foods with a higher BV rating have proteins that are more easily used by the body for protein synthesis. This is because of the configuration of the amino acids within the food.
Eggs have a BV of 90 to 100 which make them essential food and top of my recommendation list for anyone wanting to know how to lose man breast fat.
