Easy methods to Get Rid of Human Breasts: Step-by-Step Plan to Rapidly Scale back Breasts
"Can I get rid of my man's breasts quickly and naturally?"
Unpleasant phrase? For sure.
But that won't make us shy away from the topic here at Nerd Fitness.
We work with our online coaching clients on solutions to questions like these: uncomfortable questions and challenging situations that are difficult to talk about and for which there are actually helpful solutions!
We do that and we are really good at it.

Today, let's tackle the "Moobs" situation head-on by covering all of the following points in this MASSIVE guide:
What are "Man Boobs"?
Let's talk about some medical definitions as this will help us put "man's breasts" in an appropriate context.
- Gynecomastia is defined as the benign growth of the male mammary gland tissue. The National Institute of Health states that this is usually caused by "increased estrogen activity, decreased testosterone activity, or the use of numerous drugs (1)".
- Pseudogynecomastia is when male breasts are enlarged by fat deposits, due to an increase in body fat that is genetically distributed throughout one's body.
Most men struggling with "man boobs" or "moobs" fall into this second category, and the "pseudo" means that they do not actually have the disease "gynecomastia".
There is no such thing as a hormonal imbalance.
Instead, the body just stores extra fat in the chest area.
I will mainly talk about losing body fat and building muscle to lose "moobs," but I will also talk about gynecomastia and medical conditions later.
Can You Get Rid Of Man Boobs?
Why Do Some Men Store Fat In Their Chests?
We all process and store calories differently in our bodies.
And how our bodies store excess calories is a critical concept for our discussion of “man boobs”.
If you eat more calories than you burn day after day, month after month, year after year, your body has to do something with that extra energy.
Most of the time, when you are sedentary, the body stores this energy as fat to use later.
Depending on your genetics, your body may choose to store this fat in your buttocks, intestines, thighs, or your chest.
Probably a combination of all of these things.
And for some of us, a large part of that body fat is deposited in our chest area.
And so man breasts.
To reverse the process, we need to take a natural, two-pronged approach to addressing the "moobs" problem in a natural and safe way:
Exercise and diet.
In particular, strength training and calorie reduction.

Can Exercises Target Breast Fat?
Fat and muscle are two different "systems" in your body.
Fat sits on muscles like oil sits on water.
When you target a specific area for weight loss, like a thigh master, you are all you are Really In doing so, you train the muscle under the fat on your thighs.
And don't get me wrong – this is great (the muscle, not the thigh master).
More muscle is a good thing.
And yes, any exercise results in a burnout of calories – which is critical to fat loss.
However, we also have to think of the other system:
The fat rests on top.
The way to get rid of "man boobs" focuses on three points:
- Eating a calorie deficit (uses fewer calories than you burn) so your body needs to break down your fat stores (including the fat stored in your chest) for energy. You can calculate how many calories to eat to start with.
- Weight training hard so that more calories are diverted to build muscle instead of being stored as fat.
- Weight training to build the muscle beneath the fat. Muscles with a low percentage of body fat look dramatically different than men's breasts.
Here's why: Weight training is easy on the muscles you have (and can help build your chest muscles).
Your body also needs to rebuild the muscle that breaks down during exercise, so it uses up the extra calories you need to do so instead of storing it as fat!
Think of it like Harry Potter's sorting hat (come on, that's Nerd Fitness).
When you train strength, your body behaves like the sorting hat and diverts the calories that come to the cool kids' table (“Build muscle again!”) And not to the “Save as fat” table.
This is a message we really get across in our guide to "Lose Fat While Gaining Muscle".
With a strategy of slight calorie restriction combined with adequate protein and vigorous weight training, you reduce the body fat on your muscle while building the same muscle underneath.
This results in tighter skin with less padding (fat) stretched over tighter muscles.
And boom – confidence-building chest muscles that King Leonidas would be proud of!
In other words, we are approaching "man breasts" from outside and inside.
The best workouts for reducing "man boobs": Strength training
If you are currently sedentary, weight training is the best form of exercise to build a confidence building body.
In our opinion, a strong man is a healthy man.
We'll get you started in three areas:
- Development of our chest muscles (chest muscles under your "man breasts")
- The same goes for the broadening of our shoulders.
- We can also improve our posture to make sure we are tall and proud, inflate our chests, and pull back our shoulder blades.
To achieve each of these goals, we focus on building strength in our PUSH muscles and our PULL muscles.
Our first stop is pushups, a basic exercise for developing upper body strength.
We can show you the right way here:
I don't care if you have to do them from your knees or do an elevated push-up:
We all start somewhere and the name of the game is progressive overload – it gets stronger with every workout!
In addition to the push-up, let's consider the following as the top 5 advanced chest exercises.
These are the types of exercises that we incorporate into the training programs for our coaching clients to reduce breast fat and build muscle in this area:
# 1) Bench press (barbell or dumbbell).
If any piece of equipment is visually linked to a gym, it is a bench press. If you've never used one before, check out our guide to using a bench press safely here.
# 2) Bench press tendency.
You can also work on an incline bench press to develop a rounder pectoral muscle that targets your upper chest.
# 3) Overhead pressing.
Not only can your pecs help push forward, they are also exercised as you push overhead.
Different chest exercises are a great way to target all sides and parts of your chest and build rounded pecs.
Here is a dumbbell variant if you can't work out with a barbell yet:
# 4) bodyweight dips (ADVANCED)
Once you start developing serious strength, you can begin building up your advanced bodyweight training with bodyweight dips!
# 5) Ring Pushups (ADVANCED)
It's no secret that I'm a fan of gymnastics rings. It's hard to keep secrets when you are write about how great the gym ring workout is. Personally, I don't know of a better way to build upper body strength and muscle than with a pair of gymnastics rings.
In our guide to building your own workout, make sure you do a push exercise every time you workout to start building your chest muscles.
Start again with pushups.
Get started today.
If you can't do a regular push-up, a knee push-up is perfectly fine.
Just do it.
After you become comfortable with pushups, move on to the advanced movements above, or follow some of the following workouts:
I asked the male members of our Nerd Fitness Prime about man boobs, and many have reported doing these chest exercises to improve their looks.
Aside from improving male breasts, weight training will improve every other aspect of your life.
After weight training, it will be much easier to get groceries out of the car, do what consenting adults do, and defend yourself against ninjas.
Now I wouldn't be sure if I hadn't included two other exercises that could change your life:
# 1) barbell squats
# 2) Barbell deadlift
These two basic barbell movements are the most "efficient" exercises for building strength and burning fat.
They are recruiting your central nervous system and every muscle, joint, tendon, and bone in your body to get stronger.
In fact, if you could just do 4 exercises for the rest of your life I would say:
Show me someone who is super strong in these four movements and I'll show you someone who has a great physique.
Seriously, don't neglect those PULL muscles!
This exercise doesn't seem intuitive: why work on your back muscles when we are trying to build the muscles in our chest muscles?
Balance and posture.
By building strength in our PULL muscles, we strengthen and tone our back muscles. This, of course, results in us pulling our shoulder blades back and down into the correct position and giving ourselves better posture.
If you do ONLY chest exercises, you are more likely to become unbalanced, resulting in contracted pecs, hunched shoulders, and poor posture.
Here are some options for building your back muscles and improving your posture:
# 1) rows of dumbbells
# 2) body weight series
# 3) pull-ups (here's how to do proper pull-ups)
And if you can't do a chin-up just yet, here's a great chin-up development that shows you how to do assisted pull-ups to build strength, like this:
Not read for too long: Get strong and your life will get better.
Build muscle in the right places and it can help reduce "man breast" problems.
Well if you are all:
“Steve, that sounds great. I want to train strength, but damn man. I am already aware of my man's breasts.
How the hell do I get enough confidence to hit the gym if I don't know what I'm doing! "

Plus, you don't even NEED a gym to work out (it might still be closed due to the pandemic). Here's exactly how to train from home.
Okay, we talked about exercise.
And I mentioned "nutrition" as an important component when it comes to weight and fat loss.
80-90% of the question of how to get rid of man boobs depends on how you answer the question: "What do you usually eat? "
The Science of Fat Loss (Proper Diet and Moobs)
TOUGH LOVE ALERT:
I can almost guarantee that your man's boobs are NOT the result of slow metabolism or slow genetics (other than how your body stores excess body fat).
This is due to the fact that you have eaten too much every day for years.
Once you finish getting mad at me and defending yourself about it, you will find that this is great news!
Why? Because it's repairable.
You are not broken.
All you have to do is change the way you handle food.
To do this, we will focus on sustainable changes.
After all, temporary changes produce temporary results.
And we want Man to get rid of breasts permanently.
So in order to be able to lose body fat, we have to consistently consume more calories than our body uses.
Let's put some numbers on this: 3,500 calories are roughly equivalent to a pound of fat.
There are seven days a week.
If you want to lose a pound of body fat in a week (a worthy, sustainable goal for some), you need to create a calorie deficit of 500 calories a day:
Either by 500 fewer calories, 500 more calories, or a combination of both.
Remember that:: A daily deficit of 500 calories compared to what you normally eat to lose a pound a week.
What do 500 calories look like?
- The number of calories found in one big gulp of mountain dew.
- An estimate of the calories it will take to run five miles.
Hopefully those two points above made your head explode.
"Steve, you say in order for me to counteract sipping on a mountain dew while owning noobs in Fortnite, would I have to run 5 miles?
I haven't run a mile since physical education. And that was 15 years ago.”
Diet is 90% of the equation when it comes to weight loss.
Okay, I don't know the exact percentage, but 90% is dramatic enough.
I hope to make you realize that changing your diet is the most important thing you can do to reduce "man boobs."
Of course exercise is important.
However, when it comes to creating a calorie deficit, it is much easier to reduce calorie consumption than to increase "calorie expenditure".
In other words, would you prefer to dump the mountain dew or run five miles?
It is for this reason that Rule 4 of the Rebellion states, "We understand you cannot escape your fork."
Let us combine our discussion about "man boobs" with our fitness philosophy: You overeat and your body stores those calories wherever it sees fit.
Unfortunately, in your situation it will be decided to keep them in your chest area.
You can't change the past.
But you can change your future … and you don't even need a mad scientist.
So we're going to reverse the trend:: eat a calorie deficit, consistently and permanently.
Over time, your body reacts by burning fat from certain areas in a certain order (again, this is beyond your control).
When your body fat percentage drops far enough, it should start removing the body fat from your chest area.
We have two ways forward.
Path one: Count every single calorie consumed. Every meal and bite is recorded, no matter what. You can use a food journal, a calorie counting app like MyFitnessPal, etc.
It will teach you a lot about the food you eat and about yourself.
How many calories you should be eating can be used with our TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure) calculator.
It works, but boy is it challenging:
WAY TWO: Follow our "simple plate" approach from our healthy eating guide. L.Earn portion sizes and make slightly better decisions. Focus on getting enough protein and vegetables and eating fewer liquid calories.
I know diet overhaul is easier said than done.
However, it is time to take a proactive approach to your diet.
You're reading this article because man boobs are a real problem for you – do some research on what you are eating and work on reducing the calories!
And we'll get into that in the next section: What foods you eat that will help you cut down on your calories without leaving you unhappy.
What should I eat to lose "moobs"?
The nerd fitness philosophy on nutrition can be written in four words:
Eat real food mostly.
I laid out everything in our beginner's guide to healthy eating, but come on.
Don't act like you don't know what "REAL food" is.
Food that grew in the ground, on a tree, ran on land, swam in the sea, or flew through the air. Meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts are good examples of real foods.
This is what we should eat even though we all know it.
Do You Know Why Real Eating Helps You Lose Weight?
Because if you are mainly sticking to REAL foods, you are likely to naturally create a calorie deficit.
The fine folks at WiseGEEK wrote a great post taking pictures of what 200 calories of a particular food look like.
With 200 calories of broccoli, you'll have enough broccoli to fill a whole plate:
Or half a Snickers Bar:
Yes. And who eats half a Snickers and says, "I'll save the other half for later?"
In the truest sense of the word nobody.
If you want to consistently create a calorie deficit, the answer is to focus on REAL foods.
Of course, I know a Snickers bar is way tastier than broccoli – it was designed by scientists in a lab to be AMAZING!
And I'm not going to tell you to never have a Snickers again.
Instead, you need to start being proactive in your food choices. If you're going to have a Snickers, you'd better plan for it by cutting down on your caloric intake elsewhere.
And if the scales don't move and your husband's breasts aren't getting smaller, you're still overeating!
Should You Do The Mediterranean Diet? Keto? Vegan?
They all follow the same premise: If you change the foods you eat, you are more likely to be eating a calorie deficit without struggling. Certain people respond better to certain diets than others.
I personally follow a mental model diet, which is summarized here:
- Minimize and plan for processed foods – they are designed for you to overeat. Take another look at the Snickers bar. Do you Really Think you'd only eat half of one to stick to 200 calories? Of course not.
- Eat vegetables. Vegetables are rich in nutrients and low in calories. Also, because of all the fiber, they are difficult to overeat. Imagine eating all that broccoli. Are you walking for seconds Probably not. So eat your vegetables to keep you full. This is how vegetables taste good
- Avoid liquid calories. Reduce dramatically to sODA, juices, smoothies, and any high-calorie drink. Even most coffee orders (with sugar, cream, etc.) contain a ton of hidden calories. Stick to water and unsweetened tea or black coffee. Here are our thoughts on diet soda.
- Prioritize protein. Your body uses protein as a building block in building muscle. Outside of repairing your body, protein also ensures you stay full and full: 400 calories of chicken makes you way more than 400 calories of Gatorade (3). When you prioritize protein on your plate, you will do a lot for proper nutrition. Some great sources of protein are chicken, eggs, beef, pork, fish, nuts, legumes, quinoa, and most dairy products. You can use our guide to protein to measure how much protein you need every day.
These four points will help you create a calorie deficit on your journey.
I know this is much easier said than done. After all, everyone knows they should eat more vegetables, and yet 70% of the country is overweight.
There is clearly more going on here than just "I need willpower and I have to work harder!"

Does soy cause man boobs?
You don't have to search the internet for advice: "Avoid soy because it causes man boobs."
It is repeated so many times that it is believed to be a fact.
In the definition of gynecomastia (medical condition of the human breasts), “increased estrogen activity” is named as the main cause.
When people say they are staying away from soy, they are concerned about the effects on hormones like testosterone and estrogen.
Why the worry?
It comes down to a compound in soy called "isoflavones". Isoflavones are a type of phytoestrogen that acts a bit like estrogen, the central female hormone.
"Phyto" comes from the Greek and means "plant". "Estrogen" is estrogen. So phytoestrogen means more or less plant estrogen.
The fear of isoflavone lies with our body, which is using this plant-like estrogen as the actual estrogen. A report by Frontiers in Neuroendocrinology found that this may be possible (4).
I should now note that we are going to delve into a controversial topic.
We will be careful and rely on good old fashioned science and studies.
However, sometimes science can point us in different and contradicting directions. In this case it is important to acknowledge the uncertainty.
Compounds in soy can act like estrogen in the body. However, does this apply to men? And do they cause "man boobs"?
A 2005 study from the Journal of Nutrition found an association between soy intake and hormone levels in men (5). However, they concluded that these are "minor".
In 2010, fertility and sterility addressed the question of whether soy had “feminizing effects on men”.
They didn't find it(6).
Their report states, "Neither isoflavone supplements nor isoflavone-rich soy affect total or free testosterone levels."
The journal concluded that "there is essentially no evidence from the nine identified clinical studies that isoflavone exposure affects circulating estrogen levels in men".
Probably, but I don't want to mention:
There is one documented case published in Endocrine Practice where a man may have contracted gynecomastia by drinking three liters of soy milk a day (7).
His gynecomastia disappeared when he stopped. Granted, this is anecdotal evidence that is far from evidence.
However, it's interesting and worth noting to round out this discussion. And as mentioned earlier, the ability of phytoestrogen to act as actual estrogen appears to be possible …
"Steve, just tell me, should I throw away soy to get rid of my man boobs?”
Well, as with anything, quantity and context are important. Virginia Miller, an estrogen researcher at the Mayo Clinic, told a deputy journalist, "The amount of phytoestrogens in different soy products varies depending on the process method (8)."
Dr. Miller didn't think eating soy was too problematic, specifically mentioning that "eating tofu is probably okay".
Interestingly, Miller suggested that BPA found in plastic is more harmful to our endocrine (hormonal) system than eating or drinking soy (9).
In general, there seems to be a consensus that the amount of phytoestrogens found in a normal diet is okay as long as you don't use soy products.
If you have the actual condition of gynecomastia, soy is unlikely to be the main cause.
As more research is being done on the subject, that answer may change.
My Opinion: This is a tiny piece of the puzzle …
… Not the whole picture.
If you overeat every day, you will miss the forest for the trees if you are concerned about the soy you are consuming.
That would be like … putting on a long-sleeved shirt instead of a t-shirt for extra protection before going 50 mph into a brick wall.
Instead, maybe focus on putting on a seat belt, or better yet – don't hit the wall in the first place!
I swear this analogy made sense in my head before I typed it up.
Anyway – back to the real details.
Here is the nerd fitness philosophy for soy: Focus on total calorie consumption and get dialed in for a constant calorie deficit.
Only THEN, when your body fat is decreasing and you analyze how your body reacts to all kinds of foods, will you see how your body reacts to removing soy from your diet.
Would you like to be guided through this process by an expert? A fitness partner to support you with nutrition, including remove and then reintroduce certain foods? You can by checking out Nerd Fitness Coaching:
Have a Yoda in your pocket that can answer all of your fitness questions … well, not actually in your pocket … that's weird.
Do I actually have gynecomastia?
The only way to really know if you have gynecomastia is to see a doctor.
They can tell you (often with ultrasound) whether it is a glandular breast enlargement or just adipose tissue.
You might also do some blood tests to check testosterone levels and female sex hormones, such as estrogen.
When you have an imbalance, gynecomastia could be a side effect. You will know for sure and can prescribe treatment.
They can also check that something very serious is not happening. In very rare cases, a male breast augmentation can be a sign of cancer. Yes, men can get breast cancer(10).
It should be noted: obesity itself is linked to the increase in the development of real gynecomastia.
Excess fat stimulates the body's production of estrogen and encourages the growth of actual breast tissue (11).
In other words, Pseudogynecomastia can turn into actual gynecomastia.
If you are diagnosed with gynecomastia, you and your doctor need to take the next steps. I've seen men take one of three avenues when reading anecdotes from our private support community for NF Prime:
- Men who have had elective surgery (liposuction and skin tightening in some cases) to remove fat due to gynecomastia. They are grateful that they are no longer aware of their chest areas. This is not an option for everyone for a variety of reasons.
- Others have worked hard to reduce their height through exercise and diet.
- Some have chosen not to treat gynecomastia or are working to reduce the fat around their breasts through diet and exercise before deciding what to do next.
If you are into "man boobs", weight management is the route we recommend whether you are facing gynecomastia or pseudogynecomastia.
Reducing your body fat percentage can help keep your hormones in balance.
Additionally, we recommend treating the root cause (poor diet and excessive consumption of calories) rather than just treating the symptom (getting rid of male breasts through liposuction).
Your unique situation is just that: unique.
I know many men who have treated pseudogynecomastia with diet and exercise, and I know others who are VERY grateful that they had surgery to treat the symptom and are much happier as a result.
No judgment here. You do you brother.
I bet you have an additional question at this point: “Can the hormonal balance be influenced in the opposite direction? By increasing testosterone? "
Is there any way I can increase my testosterone naturally?
If you suspect you may have a hormonal imbalance, speak to your doctor. They can run tests and tell you exactly what's going on, why, and how to treat it.
I'm not going to deal with medically supervised testosterone therapy (which is above my pay grade and between you and your doctor). Here is our guide to increasing your testosterone levels naturally:
# 1) Weight training. I know. A few sections ago I devoted an entire section to strength training.
However, if you're looking for a natural way to boost testosterone, weight training is a great way to achieve it.
A 2017 study found that testosterone levels, although transient, "increase acutely immediately after acute resistance training (12)".
Because of the short-term spike, consistency in strength training and testosterone levels is vital. This is probably why “regular exercise” has been linked to increased testosterone levels overall (13).
# 2) stress. Cortisol is a stress-fueled hormone that lowers free testosterone levels (in addition to giving a signal that your body is storing fat) (14).
The more stressed you are, the lower your testosterone will be. What is a cure? Be careful.
Meditation practices have been shown to help control cortisol levels (15). Would you like to start a mindfulness practice? Read our nerd's guide to mindfulness to get started.
Do you know what else is linked to higher cortisol levels and increased stress? Lack of sleep! If it's you, turn off Netflix and go to bed earlier.
# 3) Overtraining. There can be too much good. Studies have shown that both professional basketball and soccer players lower their testosterone levels by the end of a season (16).
Which makes sense.
Tons of activity in a short amount of time leaves no time to repair and heal. The same phenomenon has been found in ultra-marathon runners (17). Make sure you get plenty of sleep and plan days off.
# 4) Eat red meat. Red meat is a great source of the amino acid carnitine, which has been linked to improved fertility (18). It's also a good source of zinc that has been shown to help regulate testosterone as well (19).
# 5) Your results may vary. My friend, Brett from Art of Manliness, did a 90-day experiment in which he doubled his testosterone levels through diet and weight training.
To be honest, even if you don't have low testosterone levels, you should be doing weight training, being mindful, and prioritizing rest.
And maybe even eat some red meat.
And yes, I read this study that said red meat will kill you. I do not agree with the scare tactics (20).

How to start reducing man breasts
So you have pseudogynecomastia.
And you are interested in trying this the old fashioned way before going down the path of surgery.
This would be my recommended route for everyone, but keep in mind that I am not a doctor and I would recommend working with your doctor to come up with a plan.
OUR NON-DOCTOR'S ADVICE FOR A DUDE TRYING TO NATURALLY REMOVE MAN BOOBS:
- Today, take photos of the front and the shirtless side. This will give you a frame of reference as you make your changes. Pictures complete your story.
- Look at a tape measure and take weekly chest measurements as well. Just be consistent with how you take the measurements and look for general trends! Here is our guide to tracking fitness progress.
- Follow the above nutritional guidelines and exercise routines for the next month. Remember, I gave you four healthy eating tips. If you requested ours 10-step nutritional guideThis will help make these suggestions permanent. I also want you to do pushups (on your knees is a good place to start). Do it right now. It will help you prepare for the advanced chest exercises I talked to you about.
- If the scale drops and your photos show a "moob" improvement, keep up the good work! As I said before, consistency is the name of the game here at Nerd Fitness. "Slow and steady" beats "quickly and quietly" every time.
- If you want to speak to a doctor to see if something can or should be done about it, go for it! Medical advice is generally good advice. Bonus points for finding a doctor who trains strength and wants to treat through diet and exercise first!
Let me stress that many of the male members of NF Prime have reported improving their "man boobs" through the strategies outlined in this article.
I would love for you to join us at NF Prime if you are looking for a positive group to help you on your journey.
