I started out 2009 wanting to get big. I got a "hard gainers" training plan from a magazine referred to on this site as "Muscle and Fiction". To increase my 130 lb frame I set about eating a 4,000 calorie diet that was high in protein, fats, and carbs (I'm talking all six meals).
Needless to say I got bigger (160 lbs at my peak) and I learned a lot about my training abilities but I also put on a lot of fat. My uninformed diet practices resulted in elevated insulin levels all day which played hell with my hormones.
I was tired all the time and then in June I noticed a tender lump under my left nipple and then a smaller one in my right nipple. Those lumps eventually got bigger and when my chest got pumped it looked like I had breasts.
Gynecomastia reared its ugly head for the second time in my life (We tangled before during puberty). I had put on all this bulk to only have my torso look like shit. I was so disheartened that I didn't train nor eat properly all summer.
When I went back to school in the fall I decided that the most important thing was to get as lean as possible. Find out what fat could easily be gotten rid of and what could not. I went from 150 to 135lbs in a matter of weeks thanks to Clay Hyght's "Set Your Metabolism on Fire" PDF book.
My bodyfat percentage at it's lowest was probably 12% and currently 13%. I went low carb somewhere between 50-75 grams a day and did a mild carb up on Sundays and got good results. Not being naturally lean I was excited when my abs started coming out. I managed to lose a lot of the chest fat but the lumps and estrogenic fat stuck around.
I am at a loss as to where to go from here. I want to reverse my gyno and I figure a combination of Rez-V supplemention and Yohimburn ES coupled with a moderate low carb die might do the trick. My last resort would be to use AIFM a steroidal aramotase inhibitor. Or, being 130 lbs, I could go back and do a proper mass diet this time around and get back some hard earned muscle (I'm tired of being skinny). I've included a picture and would be grateful for some advice.
