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. :)
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?
pics or it didnt happen
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.
I'd post once you get to the 118 with the DD. ;-)

....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!
