    Argh. This annoys me so much. Anon for obvious reasons.

    Basically. I've gone down from 14 stone to 8 and a half. Weight wise. Im 5 foot 8 1/2 so technically im underweight now. My BF% according to the scales at home is only 9%. My stomach is starting to get a toned look to it.

    But. I still have fat in my chest area. I can like feel the fat particles if you get what I mean. I hate them. They effect what I wear, my confidence, everything.

    What can I do?

    It's no Gyno, before anyone says that. I've been to the doctors. She confirmed, it's not gyno. Infact, i've had 2 doctors opinions.

    After a bit of research on the net. There's 2 ideas i've come across.

    > To do Incline chest pressing. I've always done flat benching, which could explain the slight curve shape towards my nipple. I need to develop my upper chest a bit more. Using incline benches and incline arm flys.

    > To stop doing weights altogether for the moment. Because. It could make them more pronounced. I should focus on doing HIIT on the treadmill for 20 minutes. Then half an hour of light cardio. Then, a protein shake after.

    They are the two ideas i've got off a range of source on the net.

    Any other ideas anyone?

    Anyone's feedback on the two ideas?

    Thanks

    do a whole range of chest excercises. flat, incline, decline, barbell and dumbell.

    stopping the weights won't tone your chest.

    as i will quote from scoobysworkshop.com

    'Gynecomastia, commonly referred to as "man-boobs" or "*****-tits", refers to male breast enlargement, and occurs in about half of boys as they go through puberty. Although distressing to many teen boys who think that they are developing breasts, they should be reassured that gynecomastia is normal, common, and usually doesn't progress to the point that it is easily noticeable by their peers. And most importantly, in most cases, gynecomastia goes away without any treatment. '
