  • Breasts growing?

    A little background.... my breasts have fluctuated size quite a bit during my adult life. I've been as large as 36DD, to as small as 34B. My breasts were largest when I was 18 to 20, weighing the least (119 pounds at 5'8") and smallest when I weighed in mid-130s. Although I've been as heavy as 143 and I was 34B. Also, I've never had a child.

    Here's the deal: since early April 2010, I have lost 11 pounds (I am currently 132). The bulk of my weight loss has been across my generally already slender appearing upper body. Now, I look pretty thin across the shoulders, back, collar bone, abs are definitely getting some definition. BUT - my boobs are growing again, now a 34C. (OF COURSE I AM NOT COMPLAINING)

    I'm just curious, at a time when I am losing weight particularly in my upper body, how are my breasts growing?

    I'm wondering if my hormones weren't jacked on the SAD. My period was always uber regular but that's just one thing to monitor. Anyone know of or have experience with this WOE affecting your mammary glands, where fat is stored, hormonal changes?

    I've heard this before, and it's purely speculation but it seems like the paleo diet promotes childbearing curves in women and child-protecting cruves in men. That is amble breasts, slim waistline and curvy hips for women, and broad shoulders and v-shape of the upper body. Don't know if it is hold in this for sure, but it interesting nevertheless.
    Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

      I am not losing breast fullness like I did on low fat. And I'm at an age when that might happen anyway. I suppose it has to do with normalizing hormones. I don't understand it but it's fine with me.

        Yeah, I figure it's normalizing hormones. But I guess I'm curious as to how a primal WOE would cause hormonal changes?

            hahaha.

            I will post before/after pics on the appropriate thread in the next month. My abs being the emphasis item. And the tata's? Well, they're in sports bras so if uni-boob gets you going, you might be in luck. ;-P

              That reminds me of a joke.

              A woman says to her husband "Honey, I wish my breasts were bigger."
              So, he asks, " Have you tried running toilet paper between them?"
              To which she responds "No, do you think that would help?"
              and he says "Well it sure seems to have worked on your ass!"

              I know, it's bad but I couldn't resist.

                    Hmm....

                    ....I sincerely hope that this isn't the case for everyone! Mine are just fine the way they are, and don't need to be any bigger. Eek!

                      When I went low carb several years ago, I dropped inches in the area around my chest just below the breasts. This caused me to go from an ill fitting 36B to a much better fitting 34C (and 2 drops in dress size). I don't think my breasts grew, but being able to get the strap narrower allowed for a higher cup size. Also, if you are starting weights or pushups, this will firm up pectoral muscles underneath the breasts (breasts sadly are non-muscular).

                      But yeah, primal does impact hormones. In particular, if you were sensitive to grains or didn't eat much red meat before, the differences are more noticeable.

                        Cholesterol is the basis for sex hormones. Primal typically means increased cholesterol intake, (which is NOT a bad thing) and that means that rather than using what cholesterol the body can produce from carbohydrates for repairs, it has some left over for hormone production.

                        Or least, that's my theory. I'm always ready to be proven wrong. :-D

                          This is actually a good point. And there is some weak evidence that progesterone (cholesterol->pregnenolone->progesterone) can increase glandular tissue in breasts though it's wrt breastfeeding moms who have insufficient glandular tissue and low supply because of that.

                          Goat's rue is known to increase breast size as well - though in most the effect is exceptionally modest.

                            That makes perfect sense, since one of the signs of progesterone EXCESS is exceptionally large breasts.
