• How to lose stomach fat
    34 replies, posted
Probably none of you remember this but I made a thread about losing weight to learn parkour. Idgaf about that really, I just want to be SKINNY. The thread was a success to some avail, I lost about 23 lbs in two months, and the other two months I just maintained. Which I did not want to do, I wanted to keep losing. Anyway, I have a lot of stomach fat. And yeah, MAN BOOBS. Not really big, but bigger than your average male nipple. I'm gonna keep trying to lose weight, but are there any specific exercises I can do every day that would be benefical and help get rid of my mewbs and stomach fat?
nope, you can't shed fat from only certain areas on your body, it's all or nothing just eat below your caloric maintenance level and eat clean foods while still exercising normally, lots of cardio

Pretty much what shox said, the only thing you can do is keep losing fat in general. There's no way to target certain areas. Also, if your man tits are gyno, they will still be there once you get skinny.

Real gyno doesn't go away with fat loss, and unless you use AI's to fight it when it's developing/newly developed, then surgery is the only option. Let's hope yours is just fat deposits.
Hey guys, I have the same problem as pyro. I think i might have mild gyno, i've lost a lot of weight over the last year and still have some fat/loose skin over my pectorals. Is this shit gyno? I know I have already lost the genetic lottery concerning my wide hips...

nope maintain your current weight, slowly begin increasing it with muscle
The best way to check is to feel around the nipple area on your pec and search for lumps. If you find a hard "ball" behind or right around your nipple area, then it is gyno. If you find nothing out of the ordinary, then it's most likely just fat deposits.
Thanks gents, nothing really hard there. I'm going to make a quickie apointment with my doctor (free on NHS) to settle it for good though. For now I guess its time for a clean bulk.

It feels rectangular shaped, so it feels like my ribs although I am not 100% sure. Would that be possibly be gyno, or is it JUST around the nipple area to be gyno?
I'm no gyno expert or anything, haha. Never had to deal with the stuff personally, just going off of ancedotes here. At the end of the day all you can do is keep cutting fat and hope that's the cause of it.

thx mang u saved my life I seem to be pretty good. My main problem is, I get a lot more hungry than I really feel like I should. I had my maximum capicity of food today, 3 meals and 3 snacks, and I went for a fourth snakc directly after I finished my third, I just felt so hungry, I don't know why.
cut down on sugar as much as you can, that also includes fruit. sugar promotes weight gain. however it is good to have something with sugar right after working out to spike your insulin spread out your meals, from now on you shouldn't get hungry or full, you eat to continually provide nutrition for your body otherwise you could simply have a high metabolism, in which you'll want to increase your caloric intake
Remember that protein gives you that "full" feeling longer than carbs do. So when you feel like snacking on something, instead of grabbing a sugary treat that won't do jack to hold you over, eat some peanuts or a small can of tuna. The whole sugar to spike insulin thing is hokey. Everything causes insulin to rise. Protein will raise insulin levels, fats will too. It doesn't need to be "spiked" in order to get maximum absorption or anything like that. Meals take 8-9 hours to digest so it's not like the nutrients from your PWO meal are going to be shuttled into your muscles right away.

Anyway, are bananas bad? I'm taking more of a liking to them, and I knew fruits had sugars but was thinking more like grapes, apples, ect.. My breakfast is usually 10-11, lunch is 12-3, and if I eat at 3:30ish then I count that as my dinner and just have a small snack between then and when I sleep so it holds me over a bit.

Usually I do eat dinner, although if I eat my lunc hlater than usual, I count it as my dinner. Otherwise, 5:30-6:00 dinners. Also, I have tried oatmeal and dislike the taste. I usually end up eating Special K in the morning, although lately it's been cheerios. They both taste like carboard though :l
scratch that shit i gots the gyno. felt hard lumps behind the nips. still pissed off, who would have thought that a terrible diet, drug use and alchol abuse from late 1 4to early 16 would have had such an effect? actually thinking of taking that breast cancer drug which blocks estrogen (bodybuilders use it to get rid of thier gyno after cycles).

I mean, I'm not at all familiar with drugs so it might be good, but meh.

They do absolutely nothing against gyno that has been there for some time. All you'd be doing is subjecting yourself to side effects like dry joints, and when you come off you risk an estrogen rebound that might make your gyno even worse. Hate to break it to you bud, but if it has been there for a while, the only option is surgery.

I respectfully disagree; there's a way to reduce bodyfat at certain spots on your body. Stomach fat is related to your cortisol levels. There are a lot of factors effecting high levels of cortisol, and the main reason is stress. Lose it, and you'll lose the stomach fat.

@ pyro I wasn't saying it was CAUSED by drugs pyro ya idjit. I merely said I had a shitty lifestyle which would have contributed to the condition. @Shovel cheers, saved me some trouble. I think however that surgery will not need to be an option. After looking into it a little more it could be a case of gyno that occurs during puberty/post-puberty but quickly disappears a few years after. @ seith Cheers for your advice, I know people won't mind overally but it is the only thing I am a bit insecure about. Also, the gyno is very small (with the hard glands being maybe the size of blueberries) but this does point my nipples outward and the loose skin gives them a rounded appearance- making them look lke small tits. I understand it is only mild, but I would obviously much prefer not to have gyno at all and have normal pecs. After looking at many web articles I can only pray it will disappear soon. If not, no biggie, but I wish wouldn't have it.
You're kinda skinnyfat, you should get rid of the moobs when you cut down your BF. They don't look like gynos. But the question is do you want to bulk up some muscle or do the cut first (you will look really skinny after that).
I already cut down from fatasfatass mode, I think I want to add muscle mass now. I'm just going to maintain over summer so I don't look fat for my holiday/festivals as this would be the first year of me being close to normal size. Or should I just clean bulk my way to glory?
clean and lean bulk my friend, you should be gaining at MOST 2 lbs per week

Your body is a very efficient machine, so this constant fear and need to separate both "phases" is extremely unnecessary. In fact, you should be striving to stay at the same levels of bodyfat throughout the year.

Cheers gents, that was very useful info. Despite feeling like I hijacked the thread, I am most appreciative of all the help given. It appears all I need to do is stop drinking, get 211.5g of protein and control my diet to get some solid results pretty quick. It is going to be a very different feeling gaining pounds to losing them....
