Get Rid of Man Boobs - Is it Pseudogynecomastia Or Gynecomastia?
If you think about it long enough, it is quite easy to see that sometimes life seems unfair. For instance, Gynecomastia or man boobs. This is a condition that occurs in roughly 35% of males and can be a temporary condition lasting a few years, or a permanent and noticeable condition that will cause psychological affects like low self esteem and antisocial behavior.
The first two things that you need to find out is whether your condition is a medical condition or a physical condition.
Gynecomastia is the development of abnormally large mammary glands in males resulting in breast enlargement. The condition can occur physiologically in adolescence, and in the elderly. In adolescent boys the condition is often a source of distress, but for the large majority of boys whose pubescent gynecomastia is not due to obesity, the breast development shrinks or disappears within a couple of years.
Gynecomastia is a medical condition the is due to a hormone imbalance. The hormone imbalance can occur from certain medications that you may be taking. The imbalance may also occur naturally within the bodies internal workings. Both of these situations can be fixed with a few tests and help from your doctor.
pseudogynecomastia is the term used to describe man boobs due to being overweight or obese. Not living a physically active life style also plays a big roll in this problem. The best way to deal with pseudogynecomastia is through the proper weight loss meal plan and a strength training program that builds muscle. One pound of lean muscle will burn about 8 times as many calories as one pound of fat during regular metabolic activity.
So if you are eating right, to burn calories (FAT) and you are building muscle with a muscle building program, you will have double the positive effect to eliminate your Man Boobs.
In some extreme cases, surgery is an option. It would most likely be deemed as cosmetic so the cost would come out of pocket unless you have a very good medical coverage plan. Personally, I believe that the right weight loss plan and a good muscle building regime is the way to go.
What ever you want to call it Gynecomastia, pseudogynecomastia, man boobs or moobs, large puffy breasts on a man can be dealt with. Sometimes you need to work with your doctor but most times it is your diet and activity level.
