No matter the cause, you absolutely MUST be careful of any diet plans that keeps lowering your calories as a way to keep you in the fat burning zone”... The lower you calories, the higher the risk when you start eating normally again. There could be a large testosterone boost, and this boost may be followed by a surge in estrogen levels. Also, be extra-special careful when dealing with ANY diet that has you avoid entire food groups - Remember those prisoners-of-war weren’t just underfeed - they were also malnourished - far all we know if could be some combination of high estrogen and a defeciency in a certain vitamin that causes the development of male breast growth. Testosterone Lie #3: You’ve been lied to about STEROIDS (LOTS of men get GYNO without EVER touching STEROIDS) You DO NOT NEED TO BE ON STEROIDS TO GET GYNO!! BUT steroids are still responsible for many men developing gyno because we’ve been lied to by steroid users. Men on steroids can follow crazy low calorie diets and look great with almost no risk of developing gyno because they also take potent anti-estrogen and anti-aromotase drugs to stop the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. That’s right - it’s virtually impossible for a man on the right drugs to devleop gyno, no matter how low he goes with his calories. However, a natural guy trying to lose weight isn’t as lucky and can simply can NOT follow the same type of diet as a guy on steroids. And this is the big mistake many guys make - they follow the diets of other guys who are secretly using steroids - leading to less than optimal results AND an increased risk of developing gyno. All three of the dangerous dieting facts above can lead to a man developing man-boobs, and this happens just because you tried to lose some weight. But remember, dietings NOT a bad thing - you just have to know how to do it properly. Sure, you could play it safe and just do a ’slight’ calorie defecit, but this rarely works for most men as it’s simply too easy to miss your goal and overeat. Instead, small periods of low calorie diets followed by at least a couple of days at eating at maintenance is a better, more long term solution to lose stubborn body fat without risking the development of gynecomastia. The bottom line is that men should never be on a super low calorie diet for long periods of time. It’s simply too risky . Instead, opt for periods of dietng followed by periods of eating at maintenance as a way to maintain your metabolic rate, preserve lean muscle tissue, and prevent any disturbances in your Testosterone levels.
