Motivation is a key factor when trying to lose weight. Without motivation you will quickly lose interest in any diet or exercise program.
There are some simple steps you can take to ensure that you lose your man boobs and not your faith.
Here are a few tips to get motivated to lose your man boobs.
Take photos of your body. Taking photos of yourself on a regular basis can be an amazing boost to your confidence. When I say regular basis, I don’t mean daily, every two weeks or once a month will work better due to the fact that you will be able to see the positive changes you are making to your body, giving you the motivation and determination to keep working to improve your figure.
Measure and weigh yourself: Measure all the key points on your body, not just your chest. By measuring areas such as legs, arms waist and chest you will gradually see improvements. Placing the improvement photos, measurements and weights on your refrigerator door will give you an incentive to eat healthily and stop snacking on unhealthy foods throughout the day.
Make a list of your goals. Listing your goals will make you work harder to achieve them. Write down how much weight you want to lose and a timescale to achieve this goal. Be realistic with your timescale though, don’t set unrealistic weight goals and short timescales as this will lead to disappointment and you will eventually get despondent and give up.
The man boob mindset. Before you start your exercise session, visualise your goals and go over your most important reasons for losing weight. If you are losing weight to reduce your man boobs, imagine sitting on a beach without a baggy top covering them, or going to the swimming pool and not having to worry about other people staring at you. Whatever your reason for losing excess fat, if you get into the right mindset before exercising you will be so much more determined to succeed and achieve your goals. If you are training at a gym, avoid the need to grab some fast food on the way home by taking a pre-prepared, healthy snack box. This can include such things as fruit, nuts and salad.
Be prepared for a slowdown in your weight loss. When you first start exercising you may see a rapid loss of weight, but as the exercise continues, the loss may slow down somewhat, so be prepared for this. Forewarned is forearmed and if you know what to expect then you won’t be disappointed and lose your motivation when it happens. Don’t try to target just your chest area, you may end up growing the muscle in that area but the fat will still be there and this can sometimes make your man boobs look even bigger. An all round exercise program will burn fat from all over the body and is the best solution to reduce man boobs. When the fat starts to burn off in the chest, you will start to see dramatic improvements.
Be patient and don’t rush it. Patience is a virtue and that is particularly true when trying to lose weight. Thinking that you can spend a month at the gym and your man boobs will be gone is one of the biggest mistakes that people make. Sorry to disappoint you, but it’s going to take work, determination and a willingness to succeed before you start to see any improvements.
Make sure you rest between exercising. Rest and relaxation are essential for muscle growth, so don’t go mad by exercising every day for hours on end. Start off slowly by limiting your exercise to every other day, half an hour to an hour at a time, when your body gets used to this schedule you can gradually increase the frequency and length of the sessions.
Pulling muscles and straining yourself by overdoing it when you are first starting on your fitness program will only put you off and lower your determination to continue. Get into a routine of exercising at a certain time, on a certain day, you’ll be amazed at how quickly your mind and body will become used to this routine.
Sex is good for losing man boobs! Sex is not only good exercise it also increases the muscle building testosterone levels within your body, so show this article to your wife, partner or girlfriend and make sure they understand that it if for the benefit of your health 🙂
The food shopping mindset. Before you go food shopping, write a list of all the healthy non-fattening items that you are going to buy. Stick to the list and buy nothing else. Leaving a food store with only the items on your list will not only boost your sense of achievement it will also be a visual symbol that you are actually doing something about your problem and not just sitting back and thinking about it.
If you believe in yourself and get into the right mindset, there is absolutely nothing holding you back from losing weight and decreasing the size of your chest at the same time. So the next time you want to raid the refrigerator and snack out on junk food, just imagine how you want to look, the shape you want to be and all the other things that you are so self conscious about. Yes you can do it!!!
