5 Things You Should Avoid If You Don’t Want Man Boobs

Man boobs, also known as moobs, chesticles, or bitch tits, are no laughing matter. Guys who have them will literally walk around beaches and pools with their shirt on all day rather than expose themselves to the public eye.

That’s no life! If you don’t want this to happen, there are some things you can avoid to prevent man boobs from taking over your life. Pay attention and don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty.

1. Excessive alcohol

A little bit of alcohol here and there is socially acceptable and actually good for you. Red wine, minus the sulfites, is high in antioxidants and can boost your immunity. But unfortunately the fun stops there.

Excessive alcohol intake does a number on your entire system. First of all, it causes weight gain because the liquid calories from it add up really fast. And you usually consume those calories at night when your metabolism naturally slows down.

Secondly, it causes your testosterone levels to plummet. As you know, testosterone is the key hormone for building and preserving muscle. If your levels tank, your fat storage will go up and you’ll risk developing man boobs.

Lastly, when you drink a large amount of alcohol, your inhibitions go down and you get a false sense of hunger. You then eat everything in sight and pack on weight faster than the speed of light. Any time you put on weight, you increase your chances of getting man boobs.

2. An unhealthy diet

It should be a no-brainer that an unhealthy diet, just like excessive alcohol intake, can contribute to man boobs. When you consume mega-doses of low-nutrient foods like cakes, cookies, cheese fries, and pizza, your body can’t keep up with all the calories.

You only need so many calories to function and survive, so the excess is stored as fat. If you’re lucky, the fat will be contained to your abdominal area, but that’s highly unlikely. And it’s not exactly a good plan B. You’ll still gain fat any way you look at it.

A better option is to eat clean and drink plenty of water, as it has no calories and flushes toxins from your system.

3. High intake of soy

Have you ever heard of estrogen? Let me educate you if not. It’s the dominant female hormone. Do you know what happens when you eat a lot of soy products? You guessed it. Estrogen starts to build up in your body, which screws up your entire system.

More importantly, it alters your hormones in a way that is conducive to getting man boobs. That’s no bueno! Steer clear of the soy. Not only can it make your chest flabby, but it also tends to be genetically modified, which is never good for the body.

If you’re vegan and eat soy, keep your intake as low as possible and always go organic.

4. Being lazy

Here’s another epiphany for you. Sitting around all day like a slug on a wall isn’t going to do your chest any favors. In fact, it’ll work against you. You’ll eventually get fat and weak and develop man boobs. Also, your shoulders will get rounded and make your boobs look even more pronounced.

The solution here is obvious. Sit up straight at all times, exercise daily, and be as active as possible in your downtime.

Doing chest exercises like bench presses, incline presses, push-ups and pullovers will help your cause and can even reverse the development of man boobs.

5. Staying up late

You might be surprised to find that sleep deprivation is one of the worst things you can do to your body. Not only does it hinder your brain function, but it also adds pounds to your body. Added pounds can show up in your chest area just as much as anywhere else. Here’s the deal …

When you deprive yourself of sleep, your hormones get thrown way off. And it’s mainly your hunger-stimulating and -suppressing hormones, known as ghrelin and leptin, that suffer. This makes you hungry during the day, causing you to overeat.

Plus, when you don’t get adequate amounts of sleep, your metabolism slows down. A slow metabolism contributes to weight gain, which can add to your man boobs. Prevent this from happening by getting a good 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night.


If prevention is your game, then the tips above will help you out. Just remember that it all comes down to discipline in the end. Put the work in and you’ll succeed. It’s really that simple!
