Have you ever wondered how to get rid of man breast without surgery?  It is certainly something that every guy would want to know about. After all, it is an issue that bothers almost every single guy out there to one degree or another. If in case you don’t know what a man breast is, which is a very unlikely case, given below is a brief understanding about the issue.

‘Man breast’ or ‘moobs’ or ‘bitch tits’ is exactly what they sound like. It is the enlargement of the male chest for one reason or another. There can be a lot of reasons for this, but the most common ones are issues relating to obesity, puberty, and general hormonal imbalances.

For the most part, ‘man breast’ issues are not much of a health risk. They pose no risk whatsoever unless they happen to be symptoms of some serious hormonal imbalances, in which case it may be a dangerous situation. But in the vast majority of the cases, ‘man breast’ problems are but a minor cosmetic inconvenience.

At the same time however, these are by no means a ‘minor cosmetic inconvenience’ at a personal level. It can have a serious psychological impact on the sufferer. Due to the embarrassing nature of the problem, many people tend to have issues such as low self-confidence and self-esteem to one degree or another. Apart from this, they may also end up suffering from issues of body image, which may impact and spread into other areas of one’s life.

Coming back to the issue of how to get rid of man breast without surgery, the truth is that there is really no straightforward answer.

At the same time however, there are a multitude of different choices that one could make when it comes to its treatment. Given below are some of the best ways that man breasts can be treated without the need for surgery:

1.) Wait Out Puberty

To a very large extent, the issue is nothing more than a side effect of puberty.

In such a case, it would be medically dangerous to interfere with the body’s hormonal processes because it could have a direct impact on the maturity process of the body. If in case the problem is being caused due to puberty-related hormonal issues, the best option for treating it would be to endure until the puberty stage wears off.

2.) Lose The Excess Body Fat

This is about as obvious as you could get when it comes to a solution. There is simply no better way to treat the problem than to lose the body fat.

It should be noted that the human body doesn’t lose body fat in any specific location as such. In other words, the fat loss that you desire will not happen in a ‘localized’ manner. On the contrary, the fat loss takes place all over the body.

So if you want to get rid of chest fat, you could start with a low-carb diet and a great deal of exercise. If you do it long enough, you will be able to notice a real difference when it comes to losing chest fat.

3.) Stop Using Steroids

There are people who have man breast issues due to the usage of steroids.

Although steroids are predominantly male hormones, they do ‘convert’ in the body and form the female hormone estrogen.

If the estrogen is being generated in the body in large quantities, it is possible that you could end up with man breast problems, particularly if there are genetic predispositions to the condition.

In such a situation, the best solution would be to stop all usage of steroids and wait for the problem to fade away and disappear. It should be noted here that steroid-related man breast problems may not go away even after discontinuing its usage.

4.) Use Estrogen Blockers

A great way to deal with man breast issues is through the usage of estrogen blockers.

If you are having issues related to hormone imbalances, estrogen blockers are a likely solution to the problem. Although they are predominantly meant for women, they have been proven to have a positive effect on men.

Some well- known drugs include Arimidex, Clomid, Tamoxifen, etc. All of them are estrogen-blockers in one way or another and will provide the desired effect.

This however, is something that has to be done under the prescription of a doctor for two reasons. For one thing, you could end up with serious side-effects due to overdosing on the drugs. Secondly, the drugs tend to be ‘prescription only’ meaning that they can be purchased only after a doctor has given you a prescription for it; in other words, using them without a doctor’s prescription is illegal.

As a whole, the above are some of the best ways that you can get rid of man breast issues. So if you are wondering how to get rid of man breast, the above should be a great starting point.

How to get the ball rolling on eating healthier

You may want to start eating healthier, but getting the ball rolling can be an uphill endeavor.



Make a List

When you get hungry, the last thing you feel like doing is running down a mental list of available healthy foods to eat. That’s why you probably end up grabbing whatever is closest to you and chowing down, vowing to start eating healthy tomorrow.

Instead, sit down and make a list of foods that you determine to be healthiest for you and your goals. Don’t just write a shopping list. Make a list of actual meals that you can prepare and eat. Include what day you’re going to have them, and what time. The more prepared you are when hunger strikes, the more likely you will be to have something ready without having to think too hard about it.

Buy a Cookbook

Flipping through a cookbook with enticing photographs of healthy food will get you inspired to start eating healthy. Buy a cookbook or two that has nothing but healthy food recipes. Make sure it has a photo for every recipe, so you can visualize yourself dining on the healthy options. Put bookmarks on pages that really make you want to get up and start cooking. These are the dishes that will offer you the best motivation to start your new healthy eating plan. Alternatively, you can create your own cookbook by searching around the internet for healthy recipes and saving them to your phone or computer.

Buy Some New Clothes

Wearing the same clothes every day when you already feel unattractive can keep you in a negative rut that’s hard to get out of. Put on your favorite pair of jeans, jacket, whatever, and go shopping for some new clothes. Buy a few that fit you now, and something special that you can work toward fitting into after you’ve achieved your weight goal. The change will help you to see yourself as someone new and fresh who is capable of switching eating habits for the better.

Stop Looking in the Mirror

If your appearance really gets you down, stop obsessing over your flaws in the mirror. Seriously, you don’t need a visual examination over every wrinkle or bulge. Just stop looking in the mirror, get dressed, and be on your merry way. Wait at least a month before you give yourself a once over again. This time, you’ll be pleasantly surprised, instead of walking away thinking how bad you look.

Buy a Cool Scale

If you’re trying to lose weight (or even gain weight), having a cool scale will make the process easier to measure progress. Get yourself a digital scale that measures ounces as well as pounds. They even have scales that speak your weight, if that’s what you need to keep motivated to eat healthier. Just don’t weigh yourself every day, because daily fluctuations in weight are normal, and have little to do with your eating habits. If you gain a couple ounces after eating healthy all day, you could lose motivation to continue to eat healthy. Every three days or so is sufficient to track your progress and measure your results.

Choose Restaurants With Healthy Food

If cooking isn’t your thing, choose some local restaurants that serve healthy foods with wholesome ingredients. Keep a list of these restaurants at hand so that when you come home late from work and don’t feel like cooking, you’ll have a backup plan that doesn’t involve Domino’s Pizza.

Invest in Partitioned Storage Containers

If you’re short on time like most of us, you need some quick options for meals every now and then. Invest in some portioned storage containers so you can make your own version of TV dinners. Instead of pudding and mashed potatoes, fill them with things like brown rice, steamed broccoli, and turkey breast. Prepare them ahead of time and stack in your refrigerator or freezer. Just pop one in the microwave when all you can think about is flopping on the couch in front of the television.

The key to getting the ball rolling to start eating healthier is to be prepared. When you stock up on the tools that will help you reach your goals, get ready for instances when there’s no time to cook, and be kind to yourself by not obsessing over your image, you stand a pretty good chance of improving your eating habits for good.

Sweden’s Move To A 6 Hour Workday Should Make You Very Angry



Sunset in Stockholm, Sweden

What would you do with 6 extra hours of free time every week? That’s the question every full-time worker in Sweden is going to have to answer. After years of individual companies making the switch, the entire country is about to embark on an ambitious plan to maintain productivity while also eliminating 17% of the current workweek. Yes, the entire country.

Not only have Swedish workers just been given 312 hours of their lives back each year, but they have effectively been given a rather nice raise as well. In 2014, the average Swede took home about of €30,612 (the equivalent of $34,285) each year, or €2551 ($2857)  a month, which is about €589 ($660) a week. If we break that down over a 36 hour work week (less than the 47 hours the average American works full-time ), that equals €16.35 an hour. With the switch from a 36 hour workweek to a 30 hour workweek, the average take-home hourly wage just jumped to €19.63/hour, or a 20% increase.*

That would make me pretty happy, and I hope our CEO reads this and feels compelled to give all of us at Men’s Trait a 20% raise. We’re not holding our breath, however. Wages in the U.S. have been slightly better than stagnant for decades, and now we have to sit back and watch as an entire nation was just collectively given a raise that we could only dream of in the States.

In the United States, the average earner made $45,230 before taxes in 2014. More than the average Swede, right? Not necessarily. You might have noticed that the amount people in Sweden take home, on average, was €30,612 ($34,285), not what they earned. That’s the net, after tax amount. In the U.S., depending on a worker’s tax bracket, that amount would be at best $33,923, excluding any deductions and credits on their taxes. Depending on the exchange rate at any given moment, people in Sweden might take home more money than Americans. Or Americans might take home more. It’s very, very close.

But each country is different, and the cost of living in Sweden is higher than in the United States. Or, rather no, it isn’t. When we look at just after tax income, not accounting for fixed expenses, the average Swede has more buying power than the average American. Rent and utilities are significantly cheaper for people living in Sweden, making it slightly more affordable than the U.S. overall. Removing just utilities from the equation gives the advantage to Americans for having more buying power. Luxury activities, like eating at restaurants or going to the movies, are more expensive in Sweden than they are in the United States; that’s one financial advantage we have. But Swedes don’t do those things on the same scale that Americans do, so the premium prices affect them less than they would someone living in the States.

Okay, so I’ve rambled for over 500 words about how the Swedes just made a change to how much people work, and then delved into a bevy of numbers comparing the incomes and buying power of Americans and Swedes, only to come to the conclusion that there really isn’t that much difference between the two countries. Both are wealthy countries, with each celebrating a 7.2 OECD Better Life Index score that measures the quality of life for people around the globe, well above the average score of 6.0. So what’s the point?

Just remember, you could be living the American dream in Sweden, only by working at least 312 fewer hours each year. Oh, and the Swedes are guaranteed 25 paid vacation days and 16 paid holidays yearly, plus some paid maternity (56 weeks, or 13 months) and paternity leave (34 weeks), neither of which are guaranteed in the United States.** Now, with this new 6 hour workday, your typical Swedish worker will work 458 fewer hours every year than the average American (this even includes part-time workers)—that’s 19 full days.

Yes, you should be angry. People in Sweden are living the American dream better than we are.

*This figure does not account for hourly employees, only salaried employees. Some businesses have applied a wage increase to hourly employees to make up for lost hours, but that is not a country wide practice. In reality, this de facto raise disproportionately benefits higher income individuals working salaried jobs.
**Collectively, citizens of the U.S. get nowhere near 41 paid days off a year that Swedish citizens do.
