Maybe: First, is it true gynecomastia? Real glandular tissue, not just fat? If so, some men respond to tamoxifen. This is off label use. And I would not recommend in someone in his teens because your bone growth (and therefore increase in height) is not done yet and tamoxifen might interfere. Also, this should resolve on its own when you are completely done with puberty.

No: You should have a physician who has evaluated you write the prescription.

Maybe: The short answer is maybe. Your current weight and level of physical activity (in addition to your age & sex)determine your caloric needs. Also while it is true that a calorie is a calorie, you will feel more satisfied and will feel fuller longer if you eat foods that are high in protein, fiber&healthy fats.Foods high in carbs tend to be digested more easily, so you feel hungry again soon after
