Why do women get bigger breasts on Paleo?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created June 17, 2013 at 7:09 PM

Sorry for the weird question! But I really am wondering...I've heard women getting bigger breasts (proportionally) on paleo. I've also heard of women getting smaller breasts but it's usually not proportionally smaller, just the result of overall weight loss.

I would love bigger ones- they're fine now but hey, an increase would be a lovely added bonus. But why does this happen? I always thought that no diet or food could change what you have.

Also, I'm on birth control pills (low dose). Does this automatically rule out any favorable body shape change I might see on paleo?

your guess is just as good as mine! I've been eating VLC for days and even though the kemmerspeck from Finals week seems to be burning off, My boobs seem to have grown!

Yeah, except even the least strict Paleo/Primal eater isn't down with the whole grains and cereals...

I went off bc a month ago, and I have already seen a dramatic reduction in appetite. Cravings for nuts and other goodies are also gone! Weight loss is much easier, it seems. The stubborn thigh fat seems to be disappearing rather quickly, even though I am not starving myself.

Really?! I eat a fair amount of avocado and don't notice anything. Why would that happen?

I'm not sure how...wouldn't a vegan diet be more likely to raise estrogen, with all the tofu/soy?

How? I've done a lot of hormonal research and I would like to see what exactly that's paleo that raises estrogen. I know a lot of things raise progesterone, but estrogen... not that I'm aware of.

Mine haven't gotten any bigger. I don't want them to be any bigger, though.

I think that breast growth unrelated to weight gain is more for ladies whose hormones were not in balance before paleo, whether due to a lot of soy, malnourishment, or other factors. I don't think it would be a factor for someone who is already hormonally healthy. If you are taking hormonal birth control, that will, to some degree, "override" other, subtler factors, or have already stabilized your hormones.

Jesus, no! Take mine! I'm fifteen and a D cup! (only started growing 'em two years ago, too)

I dunno, but I heard something about cholesterol being good for female hormones? And a diet high in fat, meaning we can feed our female hormones/tissues etc?

I don't think they get bigger. I think that paleo causes women (and men) to lose more weight proportionally off the abdominal area compared to other diets. So they bigger due to this, e.g. normal diet bust 36" waist 28", 8" difference, lose weight --> bust 34", waist 27", 7" difference. Paleo diet more likely to result in 36"-28" --> 34"-26" or 35-26". So the boobs seem bigger.

Why does paleo make you lose abdominal fat? High sugar/carb diets contribute to abdominal weight gain ;)

Mine stayed the same on paleo, but at a DD I don't really need them bigger!

what an interesting question!

i think in addition to eating paleo ditching the birth control, if at all possible, will help you find your most natural body composition. but i know there are many medically necessary reasons for birth control, but I also know i felt much better physically and emotionally when i went off it. I went off it pre paleo. I wonder if there are people on here who have gone off birth control after being paleo already and what types of changes they have seen both in body and mind. your body may have a hard time finding it's natural state while on the pill.

Mine definitely haven't gotten "bigger," per say, but they haven't gotten smaller. The rest of my body has indeed started to shrink, and before whenever I lost weight my boobs would look like flat pancakes. Now, for some strange reason (hormones?!), they're still perky and alert. In comparison to my smaller body, they look bigger.

I don't get it, but I like it. :)

Also, not on BC.

Meat, egg, cholesterol, and extra calories don't make my boobs bigger. It's the avocados!!

I personally haven't grown in cup size, but mine have been much more firm! If good cholesterol makes them grow/firm up, then it would make perfect sense because I have great good cholesterol. I hope someone can answer this. :)

This should be a popular thread.

I doubt they get bigger with paleo eating. For most women if you're overweight you have bigger breasts. When you lose weight they get proportionately smaller. As healthy eating should mean you are a normal weight not obese then on the whole breasts will be a bit smaller, but not small enough to worry most men I would imagine.

The reason I think breasts are getting bigger, is due to body fat levels increasing, and more specifically, they are increasing rapidly in younger girls. There is a link between breast development and oestrogen and fingers hormones added to food and environmental toxins. You also mentioned that you are using birth control pills . The increasing levels of oestrogen may also be one of the reason for increase in the size of the breast which is also being supplemented by what goes on around us.

You was two full cup sizes bigger.And the best part about the Boost Your Bust method is that you don't have to go through any expensive and painful surgery.

I don't think your diet can do much to change size if you're on birth control. They'll pretty much control your hormones so your best bet is to stop using them.

“It just can’t be that simple, Tiff.”

“Well, think about it.”

Okay, so I did. The proceeding little dialogue was from my living room a few days ago. I have been battling this hip injury for a few years and I discovered that two things keep me pain free: a tiny little stretch and avoiding beer. It’s not science, certainly, but it is true…for me. The discussion actually began when my wife, Tiffini, had discovered that adding a small amount of Iodine, in the form of a supplement, had changed her figure in a few weeks.

She had been dieting hard, training hard and living lean for a while and had been frustrated by the lack of progress. In fact, things were going the opposite way. Her doctor suggested, in passing, that a minor problem she was having with her skin “might” be helped with iodine. Within days, the skin issue cleared, but she and I also noticed “less than subtle” body composition changes. She told me: “It just can’t be that simple.”

Personally, my small boobs got even smaller! I did lose a bit of body fat (went from about 26.5% to about 24%) and I'm pretty sure it all came from my chest :(

I've gained a decent amount of weight since I started paleo so that's why mine are a little bigger- up 16 lbs.

boobs are just fat so it makes sense that they grow with added weight and shrink when you lose weight.

Some paleo recipes increase our estrogen level. Fresh fruits and vegetables like green vegetables are very helpful in cases of under developed breasts. They will not only help in natural growth of breasts but also help in improving your overall health. Other foods like whole grains and cereals are also helpful as they contain a high percentage of fiber in them.
