The main point of this article is that you should avoid foods that increase levels of estrogen if you want to fight man boobs. By identifying what aspects of your diet need changing and making the change, you will be on your way to getting rid of man boobs fast.
It's not likely that by eating a small amount of a gyno causing food you will suddenly wake up in the morning with full-on moobs. It's more likely that the eating of certain foods over time along with other factors will contribute to the formation of man boobs.
Foods that cause moobs do so because they increase levels of the female hormone estrogen in the body, which causes fat and breast tissues to be stored in male chest tissue.
When you are aiming to get rid of moobs, you will attempt to burn off this stored fat and your attempts will be thwarted if you keep eating estrogen raising foods.
The following is a list of foods you should avoid if you're trying to treat Gynecomastia:
- Soy Protein
These contain Isoflavones that can act like estrogen in high quantities. It's actually about 1,000 times weaker than estrogen but it all adds up so you should avoid these foods including soya milk and Quorn products. This might be difficult to do if you are Vegan or Vegetarian and use Quorn as a protein/meat substitute.
- Red Meat
When you want a flat chest, eating fatty red meat just doesn't mesh with the type of diet you need to be following to get rid of moobs. Sure, have a steak every once in a while, but for the most part, eat lean white meat like chicken and fish.
- Beer & Wine
The cold hard fact is that if you want to get a hard, flat chest you need to cut out alcohol. At the very least switch to vodka and a light soda mix. It's simply too full of calories to allow you to fit it into a gynecomastia diet.
You might be working out, burning off fat from your moobs, but simply replacing it if you drink a few beers at the end of the day. Don't undo your hard work in this way.
- Tap Water
Perhaps the most innocuous of them all is drinking tap water. In some countries where filtration doesn't work on Estrogen, like the UK and USA, you might find that drinking tap water contributes to your body's Estrogen supply. Which is bad news for man boob sufferers.
- Fatty Foods
This is the simplest change you can make, cut out fatty foods like potato chips and ice cream. This is the quickest way to cut extra fat out of your diet and get your body burning off stored fat from man boobs.
