So, how do you ensure firm boobs after weight loss?
1. Reduce your cardio time!
When you do cardio and lose weight, you are losing both fat and muscles. When you are losing breast fat and chest muscles, your breasts will automatically 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. Lifting heavier weights is key to firming your breasts after/while weight loss. You can even work your chest muscles up to 3 times per week.
Meeting nutrient requirements is crucial for your body to get in shape. You can use sport nutrition products such as Whey Protein to support after-workout muscle building.
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
Here is a list of foods that 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
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.
Answering our initial question: If I lose weight, will my breasts get smaller?
No, your breasts will not necessarily get smaller when losing weight. With the right exercises to grow your chest muscle and the right nutritional intake, you will be able to have firm breasts even after weight loss and you will look and feel better than ever!
