The problem of breast reduction during weight loss is very relevant. Many girls are afraid of losing weight, believing that, together with those extra pounds, they will lose their breasts

The fears are not without reason, but there are ways to become slim, without losing the seductive forms.

Why do we lose chest

The chest “leaves” with the weight, because the fat layer is an integral part of the female breast. Nature has taken care to save it from injury, temperature changes, as well as for feeding the child. Breast size, by the way, is not an indicator of body fat content, it is usually a purely genetic factor. In addition to fat, the breast includes glandular tissue. Someone more glandular, someone – fat. When losing weight, fatty tissue is lost, and if there is a lot of it initially, then the breast noticeably sags. And if it is more glandular, then it loses a little in volume and looks quite attractive.

For the beauty of the breast, its shape and tone are responsible and the so-called ligaments of Cooper – connective tissue that penetrates the chest from the inside. It is because of the stretching of the Cooper ligaments that the breast “falls” in the process of losing weight or with age. Accordingly, in the risk group girls with magnificent forms. Although the ligaments are elastic, they are easily deformed in the process of running. This should be considered when drawing up a training program.

The risk of losing weight and losing breasts is higher with age: during menopause, the amount of adipose tissue in the body increases, including in the chest.

Breast food

To preserve the beauty of the breast and lose weight, you can not use fast diets: they extremely negatively affect the state of connective tissues, each time making them all more flabby. As a result, even with a small weight visible stretch marks, loss of shape.

To preserve the beauty of the breast and lose weight, you can not use fast diets
The ideal way – the right balanced diet, made up individually for you, which will provide a smooth but steady weight loss and you will like it. So the body will receive all the necessary nutrients, including, to maintain an elastic chest, and you will have enough strength to play sports.

Even with a low-fat diet, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and linseed oil must be in the diet. This will help maintain the elasticity and firmness of the skin. The approximate diet ratio: 30% of proteins, 15% of fats and 55% of beneficial carbohydrates (vegetables, fruits, greens, whole grains, cereals).

Breast augmentation is supported by products containing phytoestrogens: flax seed, oats, lentils, barley, rice, nuts and sunflower seeds, beans, green peas, cabbage, pomegranate, apples, carrots, and others. I will devote a separate article to this topic.

To preserve the breast, it is necessary to drink at least two liters of pure water per day (coffee, tea and other drinks are not considered). It is important for metabolism, lymphatic drainage and fresh skin.


When losing weight in the workout program it is imperative to include the correctly selected exercises for the chest. These are, first of all, wide pushups, during which it is important to place the arms slightly wider than shoulder level. It is advisable to push up from different levels of the surface: from the floor, table, wall. So you use the various muscle groups that support the chest.

A wonderful effect is given by the simple exercise “prayer”. Fold your palms in front of your chest, as in prayer, and press them with such force that your chest muscles are sufficiently tense. Count to ten and move your hands five centimeters forward, again count to ten, then another forward and again count to 10, until you can hold your palms together. After that, shake hands and repeat the exercise two more times. In this case, attention should be directed not at the palm, but at the chest: the chest muscles should always be as tense as possible.

The bench press gives the chest muscles the greatest load. Lie on the bench or on the floor, in the hands – dumbbells, arms at the chest. Tighten the chest and lift the dumbbells evenly up, lower and immediately lift again.

The dumbbell layout stretches and increases the muscles, giving the breast a beautiful shape. Standing, bend your knees slightly, lean your body forward, arms straight straight down. While inhaling, raise slightly bent arms to the sides so that the forearms are parallel to the floor, and the fists are looking forward.

Pullover is also a classic for the chest. Starting position – the shoulders lie on the bench legs wide apart, the soles rest on the floor. In the hands – dumbbells (or one heavy dumbbell, then it is held with two hands), arms straight, extended upwards. While inhaling, get straight crayfish behind your head as much as possible. In this case, the elbows can be bent slightly. Then return to the starting position again.

These are basic exercises for the chest, so that during slimming and not only save it is in excellent shape. During sports, be sure to wear a special bra, which fixes the chest with a high-quality fit (the chest should not be squeezed), and push up underwear is useful. Pay attention to your posture: holding your back perfectly adorns your body and trains the muscles that support your chest.
