Weight loss diets and programs have always been a rage. Everyone wants to lose weight for one reason or the other. But anyone who knows anything about exercising, knows how gradual and consistent the process is. Along with the patience required, it is also important to remember that it is difficult to target a certain body part or weight loss. This is true also for women trying for weight loss from their breasts.
One general rule that people often hear is “The first place to get fat is the last place to lose it.” In other words, if somebody starts gaining fat around the midsection before doing so in other parts of the body, that abdominal fat will be the last place where fat is lost. This can be very frustrating for anybody trying to make positive lifestyle changes in terms of diet and exercise.
This uneven weight loss can be particularly frustrating for women looking to not just tone their thighs or tighten up their abdomen, but to actually reduce the size of their breasts. It is not unusual for those women who either cannot or will not undergo a breast reduction to wonder if they can achieve smaller breasts solely through diet and exercise. The truth is that losing breast size is possible, given that the vast majority of the breasts consist of fat. However, as with fat loss on the rest of the body, it is a gradual, overall process.

Exercises to Help Reduce Breast Size
Most aerobic or cardio exercise, such as running or bicycling, will reduce overall body fat. Plan on anywhere from 40 to 60 minutes per day of cardio exercise for the best results. Women with large breasts should find a sports bra that will adequately support the breasts to avoid any pain or soreness due to strenuous exercise.
In addition, there are specific exercises that can be done to tone and tighten the pectoral (chest) muscles, which will in turn better support the breasts, giving them a younger, fuller appearance. The best of these pectoral toning exercises is the bench press, in which a weighted barbell is raised and lowered above the body, while lying back on a flat bench. Dumbbell flies are another good exercise to be done lying back on a flat bench. The dumbbells are raised toward each other from a T position.
Though breast reduction surgery is a common option for decreasing breast size, there are other non-invasive options available to you. Before you pursue any natural remedies that may interfere with your medications, talk with your doctor. But the above mentioned tips will help you lead a more healthy life.
