There are so many different things that we need to deal with on a daily basis. There are also a lot of problems that could cause us embarrassment and are somewhat out of our control. One of these problems is man boobs, something that far too many males need to deal with. The problem with enlarged breasts on a man may come from a number of underlying causes, some of which are out of our control. There may be times, however, when a sluggish metabolism is causing our body to store fat in and around our chest area. This can look as though you are growing breasts and it can certainly be a cause for social alarm. What can be done to stop this from happening?

First, you will need to make sure that you are actually having the problem as a result of a slow metabolism. There are many reasons why a man may begin growing breasts, including some medical reasons that are a cause for alarm. These including gynecomastia, a problem in which a pubescent teen male will beginning to grow breasts to tumors on the testicles or other glands. All of these will cause many boobs, but that is just a symptom of an underlying cause that is more serious. Make sure that these are not the cause of your problem before trying to burn them off through diet and exercise.

Some of us may be born with a slow metabolism but the rest of us have developed it over time. We do this through a wrong diet as well as lack of exercise. Our body having a slow metabolism is an outward sign that it thinks it is being starved, and from time to time we may be the ones starving it. Although we may be eating a lot, we might be starving our bodies of the nutrition that they need and that would cause our metabolism to slow down to a grinding halt. Here is how to get it kicked back into action.

The first thing that you will need to do is to eat properly. Try eating a balanced diet of carbs and lean protein at about 5 or 6 small meals every day. This will keep your body up and running and will move your metabolism into high gear. If you want to add some additional juice to your diet then try some high intensity interval training, or HIIT for short. These workouts are short but intense and work many times better at keeping your metabolism running all day long.

So if you are suffering from man boobs as a result of a slow metabolism, try eating right and getting some exercise. It is age old advice, but it still works very well in keeping your body warmed up and running properly for the long haul. Not only will you be burning fat, you will be in better shape and feeling better on a daily basis. This will give you the encouragement and self esteem needed to continue on with your weight loss efforts.
