Knowing that breast tissue is composed of mostly fat, I was wondering if anyone has noticed cup-size changes since being on Paleo. Being that we consume much more fat, but we also burn more, I wanted to see what changes, if any, you have seen. I know everyone loses fat differently but would love to hear your thoughts.
Yes! I lost more body fat than weight and they disappeared. I put back on 5lbs and they are much better. If I go much lower than exactly where I am at, the boobs are the first to go. Why not the thighs??? WHY???!!!
This is based on zero empirical evidence, but my gut feeling is that a female eating the SAD for years is deficient in various micronutrients when they adopt an ancestral diet. If they start eating liver every week, they'll be addressing any existing deficiencies. In the same way that male androgen production is dependent upon Cu, Zn, Se, vitamin A etc, estrogen amount and ratios of it and other horomones like progesterone are likely completely different with a biologically correct diet. As such, I would expect changes in menstruation, libido and secondary sex characteristics over time.
sigh. nope. ive lost 23 pounds so far, and not an inch from my chest. im destined to always have huge knockers. FWIW, im armenian. think kim kardashian, or those paleolithic earth-mother-goddess statues- thats my body. ill never be a ballet dancer.
I have lost a little boobage. My boyfriend keeps insisting that they are shrinking before his eyes, but I don't feel like the change has been all that dramatic. I have had to start using the last hook and eye closure rather than the first on my bras, adjusting the straps, and artfully disguising some fabric puckering that wasn't happening before. So, conservatively I would estimate that I have gone down a half a band size and maybe half a cup size (if bras came in half sizes.) I am still a D cup, though. Wish I could shrink them a lot more and switch to some less cumbersome support apparatuses. More than that, I would like to be able to have better posture, less back pain and less of a pronounced bra strap groove deformity (google it, if you are curious.) I have my doubts, though. I come from a long line of disproportionately top heavy ladies--my mom had reduction surgery recently, actually.
Ugh, don't get me started. First place it goes when I lose weight. (and to our male commentator, they don't firm up when they shrink if you've had children, believe me. You're not helping the body issues that go with this one little bit.) I've got stupidly broad shoulders, a proprtionally small waist and big hips. I will always be somewhat reubanesque. The boobs simply don't match the rest of the picture and I hates it. Hates it, I tell you. I don't count carbs, I'm not a fanatical paleo, and I'm not excercising properly yet. I'm also not even close to my recommended bodyweight and I have no intention of dropping that much. I'm desperately hoping that excercise and dietary changes give me back some cleavage...otherwise I'm quite possibly going to deliberately put back on 5kg and keep the soft squishy look.
Nope - My only change has been band size. Mine are never going to get smaller without surgery :(
I'm hoping with more long-term paleo they may shrink. It would be such a blessing to be taken more seriously by many of my male collegues. But oh well - that's their problem - not mine.
I'm interested to see if any of the more long-term paleo eaters have seen a change.
I'd be more than happy to share mine!
I'm also happy to share the bounty, as it were, but to answer the question, both components have dropped, but not enough to justify a shopping spree. With the amount of upper body work I get between holding up music and exercise, the band may not change much. I know the cup size won't go down all that much as they are here to stay. These aren't memorex, they're the real thing.
I lost 80 lbs (210lbs>>>130lbs) in one year and went from a 42D waaaaay down to a 34A. And they have no shape to them, anymore. They used to be nice and full and round, even before I got fat (I was 36B for the longest time, with really perfect boobs). Oh well. My husband doesn't care and I feel good about the way I look in strappy tops and a bikini top, so I'm ok with it.
