I know that you work out, but do you do what you feel like or a regular program set up to get rid of the chub?

If not, you need to do so.

Watch what you eat. Cut back on carbs from potatoes/rice/bread. By that I mean totally. Sweet potatoes instead of white. No chips. No soft drinks. Eat fruit like strawberries as a snack. Celery also.

Here's your problem: you are entering the age where your metabolism is going to slow down and you'll really start putting on weight.

getting skinny is so simple. its not done through anything you do in the gym though. so if he is convincing himself that going to the gym is going to help him lose his c-cup then he is going to have tatas forever.

I've known 'chubby' men who were extremely masculine and their body weight did not diminish their attractiveness in any way.

Why would you say anything at all ? I've always believed if you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all. I would never go out of my way to insult anyone or to hurt their feelings. I have little respect for those that can't keep their comments to themselves.

For the Record, I always HATED being called chubby. But it is the bitter truth.
Not even veiled insulting.. Just plain rude or insulting.

i believe part of the reason with obesity in this country is that people are supposed to pretend its ok and not insult people that are obese. now, im not one to go up to random people and call them out for being chunky monkeys; but i think it would be a good thing if people did do that. being fat isn't like being disabled; its a choice. if people actually cared about other people, they would give them consequences for their choice.

Well, I never thought I have great legs until I was complimented for them a month back by my buddy . Trying to get the rest of my body in shape now. My BMI is 25.7 (was 27.9 earlier this year). I am not excessively overweight. Just look fatter than others with the same BMI due to higher body fat %.

"Chubby" is a sort of demeaning, infantalizing thing to say about a man. Babies and infants are chubby. Puppies are chubby. Some fat/Rubenesque women are chubby.
But when referring to an adult human or mammal, "chubby" is just another word for "overweight." And, as such, derogatory unless the speaker has an affinity for fat or overweight people. (They do exist!)

It is an insult. It is best to say "big guy". They like that better.
