Many girls are afraid to lose weight, believing that, along with excess kilograms, they will lose their breasts. Fears are really not unfounded, but there are ways to become slim, without losing any tempting forms.
Why we lose breast
The chest “leaves” along with the weight, because the fat layer is an integral part of the female breast. Nature has taken care to keep it from injuries, temperature changes, and also for feeding the baby.
Breast size, by the way, is not an indicator of the fat content in the body, it is usually a purely genetic factor. In addition to fat, the breast also includes glandular tissue. Someone has more glandular, some have fat.
When losing weight, fat tissue is lost, and if it is initially a lot, then the breast is noticeably sagging. And if more glandular, then it loses a little in volume and looks pretty attractive.
For the beauty of the breast, its shape and tone meet the so-called Cooper ligaments – a connective tissue that pierces the breast from the inside. It is because of the stretching of the Cooper ligaments that the breast “drops” in the process of losing weight or with age. Accordingly, in the risk group, girls with lush forms. Although the ligaments are elastic, they easily deform during running. This should be taken into account when designing a training program.
The risk of losing weight and losing breast is higher with age: during the menopause, the amount of adipose tissue in the body, including the chest, increases.
Meal for breast
To maintain the beauty of the breast and lose weight, you can not use fast diets: they have a very negative effect on the condition of connective tissues, each time making them increasingly flabby. As a result, even with a small weight, stretch marks are visible, loss of shape.
The ideal way is the right balanced diet, made individually for you, which will ensure a smooth, but constant weight reduction and you will like. So the body will get all the necessary nutrients, including to keep the elastic breasts, and you will have enough strength for sports.
Even with a low-fat diet in the diet must be polyunsaturated fatty acids Omega-3 and flaxseed oil. This will help maintain the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Approximate ratio of diet: 30% protein, 15% fat and 55% of useful carbohydrates (vegetables, fruits, greens, whole grains, cereals).
The increase in the breast is promoted by products containing phytoestrogens: flax seed, oats, lentils, barley, rice, nuts and sunflower seeds, beans, green peas, cabbage, pomegranate, apples, carrots and others.
For breast preservation, you must drink at least two liters of clean water a day (coffee, tea and other drinks are not considered). This is important for metabolism, lymph drainage and fresh skin.
When losing weight in the training program, you must include correctly selected exercises for the chest. This is, first of all, wide push-ups, during which it is important to have arms slightly wider than shoulder level. It is advisable to press from different levels of the surface: from the floor, the table, the wall. So you use different muscle groups that support the chest.

A wonderful exercise gives a simple exercise “prayer”. Fold your hands in front of your chest, as in prayer, and push them with such force that the muscles of the chest are tensed enough. Count to ten and move the hands of centimeters by five forwards, again count to ten, then still forward and again count to 10, as long as you can hold the palms together. After that, shake your hands and repeat the exercise two more times. In this case, attention should be directed not to the palm of your hand, but to the chest: the muscles of the chest should always be as tight as possible.
The bench press gives the muscles of the chest the greatest load. Lie down on a bench or on the floor, in your hands – dumbbells, hands at the chest. Strain the chest and lift the dumbbells evenly up, down and immediately raise again.
The wiring with dumbbells stretches and increases the muscles, gives the breast a beautiful shape. Standing position, slightly bend the legs in the knees, move the body forward, hands straight down. On inhalation, raise your slightly bent arms to the sides so that your forearms are parallel to the floor, and your fists look forward.
This is the basic exercises for the breasts so that during weight loss and not only keep it in great shape.
During sports, be sure to wear a qualitatively breast-fixing special sconce, matched to the size (the breast should not be squeezed).
Pay attention to your posture: keeping the flat back adorns your figure and trains the muscles that support your chest.
