Gynecomastia?: I assume that you mean that your breast are changing (yes, men have breasts too). That area can change with the rest of your body, because of fat. But if you have a fullness in the glandular tissue, or if the nipples have changed, you may need an evaluation. Things that can affect male breasts include:
hormones (anabolic steroids, for one)
marijuana smoking
breast cancer
other tumors (lung, brain). ...Read more

I asked a question about greek yogurt and got an answer and then I made a comment. Please respond to my comment.....L please respond to my comment thanks

I: I submitted a response just a minute ago. Remember, it takes a little time when trying to write an answer that is specific and helpful.
Here is a recap of the response to your comment
the calories will differ depending on which yogurt you buy. For instant non-fat plain chobania yogurt has less calories than chobani low fat plain yogurt. I was just looking up some stats on chobani greek yogurt, so that you can compare them.
Chobani non-fat plain yogurt: 100 calories in 170 gram serving with 7 grams of sugar 0, grams of fat and 18 grams of protein. Calorie breakdown: 0% fat, 28% carbs, 72% protein.
Chobani lowfat black cherry greek yogurt: 140 calories, 22 grams of carbs, 14 grams of protein and 0 grams of fat. Calorie breakdown: 0% fat, 61% carbs, 39% protein.
Chobani low fat plain greek yogurt: 160 calories, 5 grams of fat, 9 grams of carbohydrate and 22 grams of protein. Calorie breakdown: 27% fat, 21% carbs, 52% protein.
Fatsecret. Com is a site that shows the nutritional facts labels for different food products. Look under food data base and calorie counter. What is more important that the actual number of calories for a gylcemic index is the ratio of fats, to carbs, to protein.
I hope this information is helpful. ...Read more
