    Hey,

    i'm 5 8 and i weigh 130 lbs therefore i think i'm a relatively pretty slim guy. however i was a chubby kid therefore i had a minor case of man titties. i lost an extreme amount of weight however i'm having a lot of trouble losing the chest fat. at my height, i don't think i can go under 130 for i would look extremely unhealthy. is losing more weight the only solution?

    :wtc:

    cant spot reduce fat. could be gyno. and judging from the fact you lost a bunch of weight but your chest didnt... it prolly is. surgery is pretty much the only way to get rid of gyno

    Under 130... pretty sure you look unhealty at 130 now. You cannot spot reduce bodyfat. You're most likely just skinnyfat at this point (low weight but still relatively high BF). Your best bet is to try and put on some muscle mass. You'll look and feel better in the long run. Do you have any pics? I am curious as to what 130 at 5'8 looks like.

    Yeah man definately hit the weights hard and up the cals. I went from 255-195 so I know your situation... I lost a shit ton of lean mass. I'm up to 215 or so now and even though I have put some fat on I definately look better.

    1) that picture shows us nothing.

    2) start hitting the weights. If you do not have access to weights then you need start doing a lot of pushups. Perhaps go to a used sporting good store or find a garage sale so you can get a cheap bench and then put a couple of dumbells.

    I doubt its gyno... prolly just need to get some actual muscle on your chest. Shirtless pics will actually help though.

    I'm no doctor but sounds like gyno, a plastic surgeon can remove the excess fat and gland that causes the "bitch tits". I believe it's covered under most insurance plans since it isnt considered cosmetic. Go to the doc if you're concerned.

    Well I lost 60 pounds in the past 5 months and I used to have bitch tits but now they're gone, i've really concentrated on working my chest though, so my chest is pretty broly now.

    I saw this thing on opera where this 15 year old kid was born with boobs even though he wasn't fat at all and he was poor, so opera paid to get his boobs removed.
