Man Boobs and Obesity...What is causing your man boobs?

Man boobs, a hot topic, and with good reason. Along with obesity in men comes a condition known as gynecomastia or man boobs. Many obese men are are suffering from this condition. Many men experience a feeling or sense of humiliation because of this condition and are often embarrassed by it.

Below is a list of potential causes of this condition.

1. High fructose is in nearly all processed food and it is believed that high fructose is a one of the leading factors in obesity. Fructose has the same effect on the liver as alcohol. It has been called beer without the buzz. Alcohol contains calories that the liver turns to fat, before it can be used as energy, same as high fructose.

2.Lack of exercise inhibits the body from burning the calories. When the body cannot get rid of extra calories through physical activity, they are stored as fat in different areas of the body, such as the chest area, which can lead to man boobs.

3.With obesity comes hormonal imbalances, in-which the body produces less testosterone and more estrogen. The more dominate the estrogen becomes the more likely to develop man boobs. However in most cases these levels can be restored through proper exercise and nutrition.
