Don’t Ignore the Man Boobs on My Chest

Man Boobs are EvilYes, that’s right. I have man boobs. I may not be proud of them, but I have enough guts to show them off to the world. The only reason I am displaying my man boobs is because I want to feel pressured into losing them. I have had my man boobs, or moobs, for a few years now and I hate them so bad. I used to have boy boobs when I was kid too. Having to find ways to cover them up was one of the worst things in the world.

Then I started working out and they went down. They actually turned into muscle and I was proudly showing off my chest. That was until I let myself go again. Now I am here today with my man boobs, angry as hell for letting myself get to this point. There are certain shirts that I wear that cover them up, but most don’t. I have never entertained the idea of a Bro, a man bra, or of plastic surgery so that’s out of the picture. My only hope is to get in shape and lose these man boobs the old fashioned way.


Please don’t ignore my man boobs. I need the awkwardness and shame that they make me feel. That is the only way I can lose them. I found a site that had a bunch of guys submitting their man boob pictures, but I won’t link to it since it’s really disturbing. These guys embrace their man boobs and get off on it. I think some of them actually have implants. It’s kinda freaky and weird. I’ll give you a hint: It’s a UK domain name for man boobs. Back to the subject at hand: my chest. Mine aren’t as bad a those guys on that site. I can do push ups and bench presses but it feels like they will never go down this time around. I think doing cardio will help reduce them, but not fast enough!!!!!

Is it too late for me? I hope not. I don’t know what I would do if I had to keep my man boobs after I lost the weight. One thing I can’t stand is when I see a skinny guy with man boobs. Like what the heck dude, just do some damn push ups. It’s the most annoying thing in the world. Remember Chandler on Friends? Ugh. If you’re gonna have man boobs at least be fat.

I also want to get rid of my man boobs because of the possibility of developing male breast cancer. Many people think that it’s not as prevalent as it really is. It exists and afflicts many men each year. Getting rid of my man boobs can help me lower my risk of breast cancer and help get my self esteem up. Two birds with one stone. What more can you ask for?

    Hi Israel – I think you were slouching quite a bit in that picture which would make them look worse.

    You will definitely lose them through weight loss and exercise. Three years ago, I lost too much weight through stress and mine went down to nothing – and I am a woman. It will be easier for a man to lose them.

    Keep going – I know you’re going to do it.

    • IsraelNo Gravatar says:

      Catherine, i didnt mean to slouch, guess i was just a bit sad that day. lol. I am going to keep chugging along as best I can.

    Keep the faith, Israel. My moobs have retreated, now I just need to build a little muscle to take their place. You’re doing great!

    • IsraelNo Gravatar says:

      haha, moobs. it makes me laugh every time. Well the thing with me is that i will have the muscle as i lose the fat, or at least i hope.

  3. NSFW!!! just kidding…one of the best ways to motivate yourself is to put your goals out front and center for all to see. You just did it a bit more literally than most do πŸ˜‰

  4. You really have high risk to get breast cancer man. To prevent this, you need to eat more soya bean and do more exercise. Take easy man. πŸ˜‰

    • IsraelNo Gravatar says:

      Yep, thanks for the advice.

    • Mr. LombardiNo Gravatar says:

      Actually AVOID everything with soy. Soy beans, soy milk. Perhaps soy increases your estrogen levels, which got your moobs started at the first place. So please AVOID soy =] I am a nutrition adviser. Take care and eat your veggies. Have a good day..

  5. Not sure the anger/guilt thing is going work on the man-boobs.
    Great to get clear on what you don’t want. Much more important to focus on what you do want!

    You want to aim for goals not avoid problems or solve problems.
    Problem solving never achieves much.
    Acknowledge the problem. Get clear on what you want.
    Visualise it, live it, breath it, expect it – put pictures of nice ripped, cut pecks all over the house.
    Focus on the man-boobs and they’ll only get bigger!

    • IsraelNo Gravatar says:

      damn when you put it that way it makes more sense. the power or positive thinking. I WILL HAVE MAN BOOBS NO MORE. I WILL HAVE A RIPPED CHEST!

    i’ve heard that smoking pot can increase hte breast size of dudes. Maybe you should cut down on the pot for a little while and see if it helps.
    Post the results too cause i wanna see if it’ll work for me.

  7. DanNo Gravatar says:

    Have you had a physical? Besides the fact you shouldn’t have an exercise program before getting a checkup, there are hormonal imbalances that can cause that.

  8. Do doctors ever prescribe Tamoxifen to treat man boobs (Gynecomastia)? Taxmoxifen is medicine used to decrease breast size in patients with breast cancer.

    Ive got the same problem but lack any motivation got any tips to get started.

    • Israel LagaresNo Gravatar says:

      Jay, just start! Get up and go for walks. Walking is so underrated. Find some support, tell you friends, coworkers, family that you want to get in shape. Ask them for help in keeping you in check.

  10. “Manboobs” or gynecomastia (as it is medically referred to is actually very common among men but vastly undertreated. The main reason is that many men are either embarrased to talk about it or are unaware that there is a safe and effective treatment for this condition. As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who performs body contouring, I see a fair amount of men who wish to address their manboobs. To do so, through very small incisions I first remove a majority of the underlying fat using ultrasonic liposuction. Then, any remaining glandular tissue is then contoured to create a more optimal shape of the chest. Recovery time is around 3-4 days and discomfort is generally minimal. Final results are then seen in about 6 months once the skin has retracted around the decreased chest volume. I encourage all of my patients to actively watch their diet and maintain normal physical fitness during the healing period to assure that they achieve the most optimal results.

    Hi. Just found this post. You had any luck with losing the moobs? I used to be really skinny and could eat whatever I wanted without it showing…that was until I started anti-depressant meds…bloody man boobs have haunted me since! The depression is much better (although still around), but the moobs really get to me and I find myself constantly thinking of how I look and how (most) other guys don’t have them…it really gets me down, cos I just want to wear clothes, go swimming, take my top off etc etc without worrying about the moobs! Anyways…how’s your progress been?

  13. inbetweensNo Gravatar says:

    I’ve only come to find out they will go away but they will return as fast as they left. Im not going to suger coat it. Save your money get plastic surgery it will be the only permenint solution inked you plan on being active the rest of your life. Im about to do the same because I can’t be singled out to this anymore plus I want to enjoy my life.

    Hi, I also have manboobs, i believe it has to do with high levels of estrogen, i think the key to losing them is reducing estrogen levels, i have manboobs on my lower chest around the nipple, but my upper chest is normal, but yeah i know how difficult its, maybe building up pecs will lift the fat up?….i hate my manboobs when i slouch , or lean forward?

    anyone tried gynexin, i saw a big reduction after month ,

    has anyone else tried it?
