    Losing Chest Fat...aka Man Boobs

    Hello everyone, I'm 19 years old and I've been trying to lose weight for the past 3 weeks. I've managed to break my lazy habits slightly and have been excersing for an average of 30 minutes each day. This is basically me in an empty room in my basement running around it.

    I feel better excersing but I really hate having man boobs - is there a specific way to target chest fat? I've tried pushups but I really suck at them for them to be effective.

    there is no way to target weight loss .you just gotta eat right work hard and time will run its course.

    when you get a little more serious about this , learn your maintenance -500 to 1000 cals,
    log everything you eat maybe buy some weights a taebo tape and a ab roller and work hard.

    you lose fat in layers over your entire body. you cannot spot reduce fat

    the only way to lose fat in your chest is to lower your overall bodyfat

    you could try developing your pecs more but that would neither reduce fat in the area or make them smaller. but would give them a more manly shape

    how tall are you and whats your weight?

    Im 3.5 weeks into my cut and the fat has been melting off and my manboobs have gotten noticably less in size (as well as everywhere)
    think of losing fat as losing a layer of an onion slowly

    Just remember in order for your body to use the fat stores you have, you have to eat LESS than what you burn throughout the day- if you don't do that, you will not lose fat.

    i used to have them as well, it sucks
    to lose them you have to drop body fat, period. like others have said.
    but i was scared that i would have a lot of loose skin on my chest once i lost it,
    so i really started training my upper chest and traps, so that they would fill out, and so that my nipple wouldnt hang down (disgusting), like it used to
    but once i dropped enought fat (80+ pounds of fat) and put on mass in my upper body, it was hardly noticable.
    imo just keep training, put on mass, lose fat, and dont worry too much on specific body parts, eventually everything will come in place and be proportional.

    Cardio is the best way to get rid of the fat...You can lift weight and make the calories burn that way but overall the faster direction to take is cardio and a clean diet
