Lose weight but not your breasts!
Losing weight while keeping your breasts perky and lifted is challenging. However, we show you how to keep (or even increase) your breast size during weight loss.
“I don’t want my breasts shrinking after losing weight!” the majority of women are worrying about that.
The good news is: You can lose weight AND enhance your breast size naturally - with the right diet and exercise plan!
But first, why do your boobs get smaller when you lose weight?
Female breasts are highly composed of fat (about 75%). When it comes to weight loss, your body loses fat as a whole instead of losing it in one specific area. Since the breast is highly composed of fat, it’s likely you will lose fat from your breasts first.
Is it possible to lose fat without decreasing your breast size?
As we know, it is not possible to spot-target fat deposits, but spot muscle building IS possible. Just look at all those body builders with well built chest muscles. Sometimes they have bigger „boobs“ than many girls. Therefore you can build up your underlying chest muscles while burning fat. On the one side you are losing breast fat but on the other side if you are gaining chest muscles, your breast size will still be very much the same.
So what do you do?
1. Reduce your cardio time!
When you do cardio and lose weight, you are losing fat and muscles both. When you are losing breast fat and chest muscles both, your breasts will get even smaller. So, don’t overdo it! Keep your cardio-sessions in the range of 45 minutes and workout at a moderate pace. Not more than 3 times a week.
2. Focus on strength training
If you focus on strength training, you will lose fat without losing muscle mass. In this case, you are losing breast fat but you are building chest muscles so your breast size will remain almost the same. If you want to build a perky bust, lift heavier weights. You can work your chest muscles up to 3 times per week.
3. Find Balance!
To balance out your chest work, you should also perform other weight training exercises like squats, lunges, pull-ups, lat pull-downs, rows, shoulder press, triceps dips, and biceps curls. So when you are not working on your chest, you should work on other body parts to get your dream body.
4. Eat estrogenic foods
These foods are a good source of the female hormone estrogen and can help to increase your breast size naturally: soy products like tofu, soy milk or yogurt, flax seeds, sesame seeds, chickpeas, hummus, pumpkin, garlic, and beans.
5. Lose weight slowly
Reduce your normal daily intake by 500 calories. This will cause about 1 lb. of weight loss a week. For example, if you come up with 2,200, your new intake will be 1,700 calories. Avoid crash diets and a rapid weight-loss, so your skin won’t get flabby.
