okay so let's start on the bottom with man boobs.....are they disproportionate to your weight....if so then watch out for soy products as they contain phyto-estrogens and could be causing what is known as gynocomastia or enlargement of the breasts in men.
now as for weight......still watch out for soy as you want to foster testosterone production and not estrogen....guys have estrogen in them too and in fact testosterone can convert to estrogen so you want to look at ways to keep the balance in check. Zinc is important and most men are deficient in zinc so get a good zinc/copper supplement such as 'Synergistic Zinc' by Quest. Also look at nettle root extract as that helps unbind testosterone in the body so it can do it's job better.
next be sure you are drinking enough water. You should take your body weight and divide that in half and that is the amount of ounces of water you should drink in a day so if you weighed 200lbs then you should drink 100 ounces of water or 10 glasses. This will keep you properly hydrated and will aid in fat burning as it takes water to break appart fatty acid molecules. And speaking of fatty acids, you want to change your lipid profile from being mainly saturated to being mainly unsaturated. This takes about 6 months and this can be done by increasing your intake of omega 3 fatty acids through fish or flax seed. You can take a supplement. By doing this you are replacing the saturated fats (which make like a brick wall around your sells) to unsaturated which are looser and allow the cellular signals to more easilly pass through. Increased cellular communication means better metabolism.
Eat your colours.......eat a variety of fruits and vegetables and lean proteins. If you have a serious weight problem the important thing to note is that your body is there for a reason and it is there because for whatever reason it thinks that being fat is safe. There was this girl who was abused by her baby sitter for years when she was young. When she entered her early teans, she gained a bit of weight and the baby sitter took a look at her and said 'God you're fat!' and the abuse stopped...so for that girl, her body knew that being fat would keep her safe. So our body is trying to protect us and we have to retrain the body to believe that being skinny is safe. If your body is telling you to eat a whole pizza and you diet and say no, your body will think you are starving yourself and will cause you to store fat. So if you want to eat that whole pizza.....eat it as your body needs it for a reason but what you want to do is to add to what you are eating by adding something live to whatever you eat (a salad or just veggies that haven't been processed to death) something with omega 3 in it and a good source of protein. Your body is starving for nutrients if all you do is eat garbage so after a while you will naturally turn away from eating the whole pizza to eating more healthy because you will be giving your body what it needs and you wont feel in jeopardy of starving if you don't eat the entire fridge. Also visualize your body the way you want it to be. Get a photo of someone you want to look like (keeping in mind your bone and muscle structure) and really visualize that your are going to attain that. Jon Gabriel weighed over 400 lbs and now is lean and fit with no sagging skin and his method is helping people all over the world to lose weight. There's a new field of study called psychodermatology where they are using visualization to treat skin conditions and Jon used visualization and proper eating to ensure that when he lost all his weight he wouldn't have sagging skin all over the place. His program isn't expensive it's like $40 and is well worth the money and it's not about starving yourself like diets do it's about addressing the real cause of obeisity in a holistic manner.
One last thing is that you shouldn't go any longer than 3 waking hours without eating something. Imagine a fire that you let burn down to coals and you throw a log on it.....the fire smolders and you still get left with a lot of the log left and it just sitts there in the pit....but if you add smaller bits of wood all the time to the fire it will roar up and all that will be left will be ash. That's the way it is with your metabolism....if you feed it frequently throughout the day you will keep your metabolism high.....so try to have 5-6 small meals a day and stop eating at least 3 hours before you plan on sleeping so you can be sure HGH gets secreted right and you don't have insulin spikes before sleep.

The best thing you can do is learn how to read nutritional labels.
Some foods I wouldn't touch at all, others require moderation, it all depends on the content. Who makes a product makes a very big difference. McDonalds fries are horrible for you. But home made french fries can be just fine. It's not about the food, it's about how it's prepared, if it's processed and what the calories are made up of.
chips are made up of
potatoes (good in moderation),
fats (saturated and trans are both BAD fats and those are what is in chips so, bad),
sodium (good in very limited amounts, chips contain too much sodium, bad)
Almonds contain fats. They are good in moderation. They contain good fats (polyunsaturated and monounsaturated).
Read labels, do some research. There aren't any clear cut answers.
share your weight loss goals with your friends and family make it a positive life change and ask for their encouragement

Well, I finally watched "Super Size Me" this week, and it was amazing. I always knew how fattening fast food was, but hearing the statistics made me think twice when I go out for lunch. Basically, keep the fast food to an absolute miniumum...you will not lose weight...you will GAIN weight! Subway is much better than other places of course, but keep the fatty foods to a minimum there (don't eat the cookies, greasy chips and tell them to go easy on the condiments). Drink water instead of soda (diet soda is ok, but water is the best). Have some Sun Chips on the side...they're delicious! I understand that you're busy with work, so you don't have much time to cook. Try buying food from the market, that only needs eating or very little preparation, but is still healthy. No good can come of fast food! You could also try cooking some food, which will stay fresh and last for a few days, then alternate between different foods. Hope this helps!

For weight loss, dieting is more effective than exercise.
To avoid regaining lost weight you must not lose any more than 10 lbs a month.
Supper needs to be abolished as supper calories are even more fattening than dinner calories as you don't burn them up with most of the day behind you. Breakfast calories are the least fattening followed by lunch calories as you burn them up with most of the day ahead of you.
Reducing your intake of fats and calories will help but your calorie intake should never drop below 1,200 calories per day if you want to be healthy.
Reducing your intake of junk sugar will help. Foods or drinks such as coke and other soft drinks, desserts, sweets, cakes, cookies or biscuits must be eliminated or substantially reduced. Cereals must be restricted to those that contain less than 15% total sugars and junk sugar loaded foods such as pizzas must be avoided. Junk sugar bowls must be abolished. Oatmeal, oat bran, wheat bran and wheat germ are good cereals that can help for weight loss.
Junk sugar health hazards are discussed in a web search for "sugar health hazards".
The natural sugars in fruit and vegetables are OK as they metabolise to glucose slowly due to their high fiber content so they have a low to medium GI value. Fruit and vegetables are low in calories and are not fattening. Most fruit and vegetables are metabolism boosting foods and that helps for weight loss. Potatoes and sweet potatoes are exceptions and can be fattening.
Very high fiber foods such as wheat germ and wheat bran can also help for weight loss.
Fattening combinations that you need to avoid include combinations of protein foods (such as eggs, meat, poultry, sea food, cheese and nuts) with starchy carbohydrates (such as bread, cereals, pasta, rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes and corn).
