How do I get rid of the man boobs?

Question:

I don't know how to say this politly so I'm just going to come out with it... What's the best way to get rid of man tits?

Answer:

Please understand this is a question that gets asked quite a lot, so there's no need to be shy about it. You'd be astounded as how many times this question appears on message forums, my Inbox and so many of the fitness books... with that ...

What's the best way to get rid of man boobs?

First, man boobs are nothing more then fatty tissue on a man that is stored in the pectoral region. And with any fatty tissue, the best way to get rid of it is to lose overall body fat. Forget about specific exercises and spot reduction...

Just lower your body fat in general and the fat will be burnt off from your body reducing the area.

Second, there are cases where hormones (estrogen) is too high in males. This can lead to the man boobs issue as well. In this case, if you are lean but cannot seem to get rid of that fatty tissue, it may be a hormonal issue. This is something you'd want to consult a physician on as they can look into it more deeply and perscribe some medications that will help eliminate the problem if it's linked to hormonal issues.

Third, sometimes you are lean, you have excess skin or the body fat has been reduced but the area will not go away. Surgery is another option. One I don't recommend unless you have no other alternative.

Needless to say,...

Man boobs are not an uncommon problem. On the other hand, it's embarassing to many. To reduce this problem you simply need to lose overall body fat. 99% of the problem lies in this area.

If you are wondering what constitutes good nutrition, exercise and cardio then I would recommend if you've found this blog helpful, you should check out the Beginner's Guide to Fitness and Bodybuilding. These issues are covered in the question and answer style format.
