    Actually rowing is a pretty good idea I would have thought, thanks.
    No probs, as a rower meself (well, very very very casual rower ) it's a good sport.

    Right thanks, going to aim on running in the morning and then running on the night and try and join the local boxing club or something. I don't know I am scared people will just laugh. RUn fat boy run type thing.
    Haha I love that film! ok, if you're going to run I'd say once a day is plenty enough, otherwise you can seriously strain your heart.. And if you're really worried about the gym (which is silly cause I know lots of larger people at my gym and nobody notices them, they're all concentrating on themselves!) then perhaps you've heard of HIIT? I've heard that works well!

    Ok OP, here's what you do.

    How about first of all you stop chowing down on all your sodas, Big Macs, chocolate bars and biscuits. This is the first and most important step. Next, you have to revolutionise your diet. The moobs are there because of excess body fat. If you want to lose that fat, you're going to have to eat less food. Create a calorie deficit (you eat less calories than you burn each day). I'm assuming that since you have let your body degrade to the point where your chest has its own protective airbags, you're gonna be pretty heavy and have a fairly high BMR, so this shouldn't take too much effort. Cut unwanted sugars out of your diet completely. No more donuts and beers for you. Eat lean meat, such as chicken and fish, plenty of vegetables and make sure your carbs come from wholemeal sources (e.g. brown bread and rice).

    Next, once that fat starts to recede, you're gonna want to decorate your torso with a mighty pair of pecs. Start by doing press-ups, tricep dips (off a bench or a chair), and move on to using free weight exercises like bench presses. Keep doing these over several months, increasing the weight, and while you're at it work your legs, back and arms out too, otherwise the chest muscle won't grow to its full capacity and you'll find it hard to tone up.

    I used to be in a similar position to you, OP. I used to wear thick jumpers and never took my top off in the summer because my chest embarrassed me. Now though, thanks to hard work and correct diet, I've got the best pecs out of anyone I know, and I whip my top off at every chance I get.

    Thanks you have actually inspired even more so.
    Just one thing .. should I start the exercise straight away along with the crunch in the diet?

    You'll have to do exercises that focus on your chest area in particular, merely walking more and eating less won't get rid of the excess fat on your chest. Sure it will make you thinner but if you want to do this in a month you won't really see much of a result in such a short space of time.

    Try weight training and cardio.

    I'm pretty sure a negative calorie intake whilst building up muscle is very bad for your health:confused: What would you live off!

    Why the neg it was a genuine question... wouldn't you be fainting all the time?

    The chest area, it'll focus in on your muscles in that region and tone them up quicker

    Samatkins suggested rowing surely this is like the perfect exercise? Resistance and works the chest area whilst blending with cardio?

    I've had fat deposits in my chest too and started working out, doing dips, bench press, incline bench press, dumbell flys, incline dumbell flys, i still have fat deposits on my chest ( need to start doing cardio) as well as my stomach but weights have certainly helped to firm the chest up, you'll find that when doing weights and you start building chest muscles they will look bigger but thats because the fat is now pushed out... Do interval training after a weights workout and you will feel really good afterwards but tired because your body will now be in a fat burning state.

    Basically you wont be able to lose fat only in chest, once you start losing fat you will lose it all around so its pretty easy to look at the diet and clean it up as a poster above me already mentioned by cutting out unhealthy food but you still need cardio and weights.

    You mentioned a local boxing gym, some boxing gyms have weights too, maybe do weights first then hit the punch bags, do skipping, do some shadow boxing and maybe once your confident enough spar aswell. Boxing is a good full body workout for fat loss and being in good athletic form.

    Sounds good. Yeah if you blend them in together your heart will become stronger so your stamina improves as well as your muscle tone. Win-win

    I think it's all been cleared up quite well here.

    Avoiding fatty and sugary foods whilst keeping running regularly should do the trick for weight loss. As far as I am aware running longer distances burns more calories than running shorter distances at a higher speed, so I would say focus on distance.
