how to get bigger boobsBy Matt Stone

Sort of a running joke at this site is the fun-filled side effect of “refeeding” for an increase in metabolic rate – a common health enhancement strategy advocated in many cases by yours truly. That side effect, as the title has already revealed, is breast enlargement.

The stories of women increasing their bust size substantially have been numerous enough over the years to have come up with a special term describing a bigger boob story – a “breastimonial.” Breastimonials abound at 180DegreeHealth. Heck, even my own girlfriend has gone from a lifeless, sagging A to a quite firm D over the last 18 months.

While many assume that the increase in bust size stems from adding body fat, and that’s certainly part of it in some cases, there’s more to it than that. With a rise in metabolic rate comes a rise in progesterone, and I believe this rise in progesterone may have something to do with the increased physical femininity of women doing metabolic work. This manifests in more prominent fertile characteristics – more voluptuous breasts and buttocks in particular. With this comes increased fertility and all that one would expect to accompany it, such as increased sex drive, increased vaginal lubrication, improved menstruation, and other things that make me a little lightheaded just to type.

If you are a female looking to enlarge your breasts, the formula that has worked for many other women is pretty simple…

  1. Eat enough calorie-dense foods to fully satisfy your appetite (most favorites include pizza, cheeseburgers, buttery mashed potatoes, and other creamy, salty, cheesy things, and ice cream, tiramisu, cheesecake, and other popular desserts).
  2. Get extra sleep.
  3. Don’t exercise too much.
  4. Don’t consume too many fluids. Your urine should always be yellow.
  5. Track your body temperature, eating enough food and getting enough rest and relaxation to see it rise to a constant temperature of around 99 degrees F (oral).

To conclude this, here is one of my favorite breastimonials, sent to me a little over a month ago. It contains some valuable physiological lessons and is an entertaining read…

Dear Matt,

Short story: thanks for the tits.

Long story: I was vegan/vegetarian for 10 years, and then mysteriously (lol) came down with an illness that gave me intense stomach pain. I couldn’t even drink a glass of water without pain, and the doctors told me that it was just stress. I dropped 15 pounds as it continued for 14 months, until my husband figured out that our little Japanese apartment had hidden black mold. We thought it was a simple mold-allergy, and because I was reacting to everything I ate, my diet became extremely limited.

We cleaned the fuck out of our place, and I started recovering a little when I tried Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof diet and my husband finally convinced me to add some animal products. But as the Bulletproof thing didn’t recommend carbs at the time, I was a total bitch to be around and was completely fatigued.

About 6 weeks after the Great Mold Cleaning of 2012, we discovered your work as well as that of Ray Peat and Danny Roddy, and discovered that I had all the symptoms of a slowed metabolism, and that the slowed metabolism may have been the root cause of it all. The mold was just the canary in the coal mine. I forced myself to dial down the orthorexia and let myself just eat for the first time in over 10 years. I had butter in my coffee, sugared milk, homemade orange julius drinks, buttery barbecued beef (say that 10 times fast), chicken, gelatin, potato chips, lots of ice cream, and all sorts of other “unhealthy” foods. I also stopped drinking so many GD liquids (I was drinking around 3 liters of water a day, as well as other liquids like smoothies, coffee and tea).

It’s now July, seven months after starting to consciously raise my metabolism, and these are my results:

  • Pulse: Started in the low 70s, now consistently in the 80s and 90s.
  • Temperature: Started in the 96s, now in the 98s most days.
  • Cycle: I used to have incapacitating menstrual cramps and would go through an entire box of Tylenol each month, now I usually have around 5-6 hours of moderate cramping, and have only taken 2 Tylenol in 4 months.
  • Hips: I used to have heavily pear-shaped thighs with big pockets of cellulite, now the fat has magically migrated into my ass, giving me a c-shaped bubble butt with much less cellulite and a more hourglass shape.
  • Tits: I used to be a small 34 B cup, and half the month my bra would be pretty loose. Now I am a full 36 B, and my bra is full all the time. I never used to have to worry about men staring at my boobs, because it never used to happen, but now I experience that joy every day. Close friends have commented on it and admitted that they were wondering what I had done. My husband is very happy.

So I just wanted to say thanks for the tits and for helping me to get my shit together and finally feel healthy. I went from 130 pounds at my sickest to a muscular, healthy 150 pounds, and my husband tells me I look like one of the warrior babes on the cover of a Conan the Barbarian novel, which is pretty awesome. Thank you for everything!!!

    • For real! Even when I weighed 100 lbs back in the day I was a C cup, and in rehabbing my metabolism I’ve gone from a DD to a G – yes, *G* cup…and I’m starting to spill out of it, so I’m probably really an H now! I’d be fine if that stopped and I started growing a better ass instead. :P My ass has gone from fairly round to square and lumpy. How do I get my bubble butt back?

      I’ve gained about 20 lbs total since March, when I started all this. (I thought I had leveled off at ~15 lbs gained, as I was steady there for several months, but then I went on vacation and gained 6 more in a week.) My belly bloat has never really gone away.

    • Skye, before I developed my ED my resting heart rate was always in the high 80s. During the ED my resting heart rate would be in the 50s or 60s. Now that I’m recovering its in the 80s again. 60-100 bpm is normal for an adult, and unless you’re having other symptoms like shortness of breath or palpitations you’re probably okay!

  6. At my sickest I was a very pathetic C and my boobs had “lost their will to stand” according to my brutally honest bestie. Its been 4 months since I started eating the food and I’m now happily in my DD bra, gone from a size 2 to a 6 in pants size but holding there. At first I freaked out about the extra hippage but I’m learning to like having some curves. Somehow women have been brainwashed to believe that you’ve got to have the body of a teenager your whole life! I’m still getting used to the extra weight and have to fight the urge to start cutting calories, but I’m happy to have the twins back in their full glory. My boy definitely has no complaints either :)

    • A size 6 is the body of a teenager, at best. When I briefly starved and exercised my body down to a fleeting size 6, I could buy clothing in the children’s department.

      • No such thing as one size fits all. Size 6 can be huge to some small built women.

        • Yeah size 6 would be huge on my body, even a size 2 in the women’s department seems bigger than it used to be.

  7. Mr. Matt Stone, any man that can find a safe and natural way to increase the size of boobies should be awarded the Nobel prize!!! Or at the very least your face should grace the cover of Time Magazine as man of the year!!!!!

  8. Well that explains everything!!

    Since re-feeding began for me 11 months ago I have gained 10+kgs, which I thought was the reason I am onto my third purchase of bigger bras in that time! (They weren’t small to begin with!) I swear my butt has gained shape too! So now the insatiable hunger has eased off, and I have the energy to exercise a bit, I am hoping the weight will stabilise and normalise (whatever normal is for me). Please tell me the fat will go away…soon! lol Plus, I am so warm all the time, unless I have too many cups of tea, and then I get cold!

    Asian women seem to be very fertile even though they don’t posses these body features.

    I have those body features and yet I am also estrogen dominant with low progesterone. I had a bubble butt even when I was a thin raw vegan.

    Reply
    • Asians are probably shorter and less developed because of general poverty. If you start out with lesser calories as a child, your body doesn’t need as much to remain healthy enough for basic functions like reproduction. I think.

      They’re getting taller as of late in some areas, not sure if that’s a lanky or more voluptuous version though.

      People of European ancestry however, especially northern, are much larger naturally. Like the moose is bigger the farther north you go:).

      Reply
      • I highly doubt this is true. Plenty of Asian Americans, my sister being one of them, are just tiny people, most likely due to genetics. Most Asian Americans are probably not malnourished.

        Reply
        • Yes, I think that it is mostly genetics. If you look at the people in, say, the northern part of China, say, around Harbing, they’re pretty tall in general. The more southern you go, the shorter people are. Although in some ways, that doesn’t make sense genetically. I would think that height would be more favored in the south, as a means of cooling down the body.

          I just read the story about Dennis Rodman taking on the job as coach of North Korea’s basketball team. Most of the comments trashed his supposed “anti-patriotism”, but others laughed that he would be fielding a team of men who averaged 5’4. I think the latter might get surprised.

          Reply
          • Thomas, height needs to be supported with a richer diet, it’s not simply genetics at play. But if I were to follow your line of reasoning, I’d think in a really hot climate, small stature would allow for heat to escape more quickly. However, everything is small nearer the equator–just a lot more diversity and less space for individual species to spread out.

        • While I don’t care if Asian women are more petite due to genetics or diet, according to the research I read, it is suggested genetics is not the reason because with a changed diet, many Asians today in areas where people are generally of short stature, are growing taller.

          Plenty of US born Asian Americans grow much taller than their parents even if plenty others don’t. The most likely scenario is that someone with genes to grow particularly tall, will grow taller if the right diet is provided (which is going to have more protein in it). But then there has to be a certain level of physical activity to allow for enough calories to be consumed as well.

          Europeans in the US during the earlier centuries grew much taller than their European relatives, I’m assuming because of diet and superior soil as they were still marrying within the same gene pool as in Europe.

          I never said anyone was malnourished.

          Anyways, my point was more that in a petite woman, boobs will generally be smaller. In someone of northern European ancestry, bigger than a cup A is probably the norm in a lady of healthy weight. We’re not all the same.

      is it that you have some symptoms or you got some tests done.
      Asking because i am wondering about my self.
      i remember you wrote that you are implicating few of Ray Peat
      tricks as raw carrots, orange juice and pregnenolene. are they

  10. You know it’s funny I keep thinking that my butt looks different..I think that’s the difference! It’s not really smaller, but just shaped better than it was when I was killing my metabolism at the gym! Boobs have never been a problem though.

  11. When lifting weights quite a lot I could never really get my chest to grow relative to my arms/abs etc… Any males had any interesting experiences?

    Reply
    • You’re either A. not eating enough B. Not lifting heavy enough C. Genetically doomed to have a big chest. Every person has one body part that is difficult to either grow or get rid of in my eyes. Some people have big legs while others cant grow their legs no matter what they do. BUT if you really work hard it will happen. Here’s my solution….train your chest 4 days a week. Do push ups everyday. Even if you are sore, train it. That’s a good solution to grow a stubborn body part.

      Reply
      • shit, to *not have a big chest.

        Reply
        • yeah its not that strength in the chest region was an issue. I was doing 300+ pushups a day. Plus some weight sessions. You are probably right in that I wasn’t eating enough, and perhaps its genetic. Not too stressed about it. Thanks for replies.

          Reply
    • I have almost the opposite problem. I can develop my chest muscles pretty easily, but I’m weaker in a couple other lifts. I actually bench less often than I’d like so I can let my other lifts catch up. I would say the simplest solution to an undeveloped chest is just to hit the bench press 3x a week.

      The question I have is–Did any other males notice their temperature rising as they read the comments to this post??? All this talk of T-and-A has me in a mood.

        • Ha!

          Reply
    • Sorry, little late on the response, but here goes. First, calories are your friend…lots of red meat, butter, potatoes and Haagen-daaz. Very healthy considering I’m a personal trainer…right? Anyway training quality is WAY more important than quantity. Not sure how you train, but I will say that heavy compounds like squats, DL’s, pendlay rows etc… Should be the main focus performed 2 times per week at most. If you really want a big strong chest, stop training it for a month or two and focus on your upper back. Do heavy sets of seated overhead Dumbell presses in place of bench. A strong upper back is where pressing strength actually comes from because it stabilizes the shoulder girdle and allows the muscles to fire correctly. Trust me, once you can do overhead presses with 100+ lb dumbells your chest will grow and flat benching will be an afterthought. I never flat bench but will do it once or twice per year and can easily do 315 for 8. Just my 2 cents, hope this helps!!!

  13. Breastimonial: went from 70C to 70E (three cup sizes) in 6 months. I’d already done a lot to recover my metabolism before that, but that happened only when I started truly eating the food and let go of EVERY limitation. I actually just went to buy new bra a couple of weeks ago and the above change is in the exact same bra model, made me laugh to see how real this is :D The sales lady was angry when someone had clearly sold me a wrong size before but I assured her, there’d been a CHANGE… ;)

    Never quit Crossfit during refeeding though, still do it, plus coach (since 2007… ), so it’s mostly the food that’s made the difference :)

  15. I don’t like sleeping with men who have boobs! ditto for a fat gut.

    estrogen dominance from excess dairy is usually the culprit.

    • Claire: Thanks for your diagnostic expertise and valuable feminine insights. Wow, I had no idea that being fat and having boobs could ever be such a deal killer for the ladies! I doubt that excess dairy is an issue for me. But now that I know this is a real problem, and not just an inconvenient eyesore, I’ll just run right out and fix whatever it is, so I can get me a hottie like you with an amazing body and awesome personality. Now that I’ve eliminated dairy, it’s probably just lack of willpower, too many carbs, not enough carbs, too much fat, too many pufas, laziness, exercising too hard, not exercising hard enough, not enough nutrients/sun/chia seeds/liver/CLO/grass fed guinea pig organs/shellfish/fermented foods/magnesium/coconut oil/eskimo breast milk/vitamin K supplements, too much soy, EMFs, Japanese radiation, too much gluten, not enough grounding, not enough oxygen, not enough CO2, too much fruit, or chemtrails. I’m on it! Hang in there baby, I’ll be ready for you in just 46 days looking like Adonis or my money back! If not, we can just hang out, watch chick flicks, drink red wine and talk about our tits.

          Kinda sucks doesn’t it, when people put out a bold-assed judgment on every member of your sex, especially for a shallow thing like your body composition. Btw I love your answer back-gotta get me some grass-fed guinea pig organs:)))

          Reply
          • Laura: True that you guys are subject to the brunt of insensitive and judgemental remarks and even thoughts probably, about your bodies, and I feel for you but, largely due to basic social progress that we all take for granted, a dude saying the same thing about women would have generated a lot more backlash in a place like this. i.e. “I don’t like to sleep with women with no tits and a fat ass.” As I sarcastically indicated, I’m not surprised by Claire’s preference, and I’m not offended by them. I have my own preferences. But none of us particularly need the idea that we might see ourselves as currently less than desirable to many members of the opposite sex unnecessarily reinforced, as if we didn’t know already, and further as if the problem was simple to solve… more especially in a place like this where body insecurities are major driving force of a lot of people’s health dysfunction, men and women both (though not mine… so far…). We all have these ideas and feelings about what we will and won’t accept in people’s bodies. Regardless of where they come from, they don’t necessarily make us bad or superficial people. Anyone who swallows the “beauty is only skin deep” thing hook line and sinker, at face value, is deluding themselves. We are hardwired for certain preferences, with our lifetimes of confusing, and very powerful, programing and social sphere stuff on top of it.

            I actually raised guinea pigs for food (just one generation). They’re okay eating, but nothing to write home about. Kind of scrawny. What’s cool is how well they are worked into daily life in Peru. Houses are designed around them and they live largely off kitchen scraps. In that paradigm, they’re awesome. Some university program has spent decades breeding super guinea pigs approaching the size of a rabbit, and fatter than normal ones too. The thing is that they have to eat more, which screws up the whole way they are traditionally worked into family life. Just like any super crop. Sure it yields twice as much, but only if you feed it a lot more.

  16. Dear Matt, I would also like to say thanks for the tits, which have gone from a 32B to a 36E (Jeeeeesus!!!), and for the ass, which is actually now like a shelf you can rest things on! However, am not so pleased with the swollen stomach which looks like I am about to give birth :-( Please tell me it will not be like this for ever??? I struggle to get trousers to fit over my huge ass and swollen stomach and have gone from a size 8 to a size 18…grrrrr! The only way I can possibly wear jeans is to buy maternity ones….more grrrrr ing! I also struggle to bend down and tie my shoes…this is ridiculous. In fact it is so swollen at the moment that I don’t want to eat anything, ever! I force myself to though as otherwise my temps drop and I barely sleep. I am six months in and have gained 60 (grrrrrr again!) pounds….pants! Big pants even!

    • Me too. It causes me to doubt. I HATE my BELLY.

  17. I went from barely filling a 32B (I think I was really still an A) to a 32D in about 7 months by finally just eating whatever I felt like, and I didn’t gain a pound (and yes, that means my stomach and legs actually got a bit thinner, especially because I’ve also been lifting weights a few times a week and my muscle mass has clearly increased). That would support the theory that it’s an improved metabolism and more ideal hormone levels that are shifting fat into the chest, not just fat gain.

    After MUCH experimentation (I’m talking 10 years of every diet and eating disorder you can think of, and then the last year of discovering 180D and giving up food fears and becoming normal again) I think my weight is most directly related to levels of fullness. When I consistently feel stuffed, I will gain fat even if I’m only eating lettuce and tomatoes. When I eat to fullness, I level out at a thin but curvy shape. So my method now is to eat super high calorie meals but try never to eat to the point of being full. I stop when I’m not hungry, which is easy to do when you have delicious, diverse, high fat/sugar/starch, healthy meals. My temps are in the 98s, I pee yellow every 4 hours instead of white every 15-30 minutes, my digestion is perfect and transit time normal instead of requiring strong coffee on an empty stomach to clean me out, and I just feel great. My stomach is now just about as flat as it was when I was at my lowest weight. Difference is, I have to lift my boobs out of the way to see it :)

    Reply
    • Excellent point, I try not to eat to stuffed anymore. I aim for not hungry.

      I had been doing so very well for several years and then my weight bounced up 40 lbs with a cellulitis infection and 3 months of antibiotics (off and on as the infection never really died.) Now, come to find out my ears flare up when I have pomegranate, nectarine, or cherries. Why? I have no idea. But, if I avoid that the ears are ok.

      Now I have to figure out a way to keep my metabolism humming along (higher intensity exercise (not Crossfit.) for about 45 minutes and about 20 min. of yoga seems to help, avoiding salads, eating meat/potatoes, drinking my chocolate coconut milk seems to help. I’m not losing yet, but I hope to get there.

      Has anybody tried Garcinia Cambogia? I tried it and it did make me lose but it also seemed to interfere with my BC (yasmin). I wondered if I was losing because it interfered with the BC. I’m toying with the idea of going off the drugs.

  18. Yeah, another one who doesn’t like the bigger boobs. I was big enough before I started this whole thing. When I gained the weight it went to my belly first, then all the way up and last back on my hips. I definitely have the curves, just too much of them. My butt has always been flat & is still flat. I am getting back to exercising now so hoping when I lose the weight I will get my boobs to a more comfortable size.

Any veggies & fruit give me digestive probs and zits (always had clear skin before). A stool test showed a yeast overgrowth. Tried a candida diet + antifungal herbs such as cap acid, oregano oil, goldenseal, and mega probiotics. The intolerance hasn’t gone away 1 yr after ETF. I am wondering if I should take the prescription antifungals or just suffer as my body heals for a few years??

  21. I don’t think that the increase in breast size is due to an increase in progesterone only. I had my blood work taken after my doc had me do a juicing regime and my estrogen had plummeted and my breasts shrunk from a 34 to a 32. After following the advise here I am up to a 37. My hormonal profile (including estrogen) is in better balance. So for me, progesterone was not the issue, nevertheless improving body temperature brought me into a healthier balance.

  24. Coming from someone who used to be a 34B, I’ll take those back any day over my 38D’s I have now. They’re extremely uncomfortable and it’s harder to find clothes that look right. I can’t believe I ever wanted big boobs!

    Reply
    • Maybe you are wearing the wrong bigger size … going from 34 to 38″ seems like a big jump, as band is mostly a measurement of ribcage size, and wouldn’t change that much even with a little fat on it. I suspect that a bra sized 34DD or 34F would be more supportive and look tidier under clothes? Can’t always find those sizes at Target, tho. (In the US,) Nordstroms and specialty shops carry them. Signed, A Veteran Bra-Shopper. In the forums, somebody posted a ton of useful links about more “progressive” bra fitting.

  26. Just a shout-out of support for the small-breasted women. I’ve got friends who are small-chested yet eat *a lot* and have never followed any particular diet. (Being naturally thin, they were never pressured to, luckies!) Small can be beautiful, too.

    Being a woman in this society means being criticized for your looks no matter how you appear or what you do … even stunningly beautiful actresses are constantly criticized! If you’re not too big, you’re too small; if you’re not too small, you’re too big, and so on forever, it seems.

    my husband’s man-boobs seem to be less. he is etf-ing and walking for exercise.

    • The rise of fake boobs has made smaller breasts a lot more attractive to me. The problem is when you used to have size D boobs and go down to an A (my girlfriend). That just doesn’t look right. They now look and feel the way they should for her frame and body type.

    • I actually love having small boobs. I might like another half-cup-size, but being able to play sports more easily, go without a bra, etc. has major lifestyle benefits!

      The only time my boobs have grown at all is when I’ve put on weight, and not enough to make the weight worth it. Even on the pill they only grew the tiniest little bit. Pretty sure I am destined for small boobs forever.

      • I agree, The Real Amy! I couldn’t imagine having big boobs, and being the avid yoga-chic that I am. I am small, so small boobs fit me- and like you said not having to wear a bra around the house or getting the back pain that so many large busted ladies seem to get. Small boobs can be sexy too :-)

  29. I dunno. I think there are a lot more variables than just, “Eat food, get bigger”. I went from a 5’6″, 140-lb, miserable size 8 and 34B (coming off a 7-month SCD/GAPS healing stint, like Paleo on crack) — to a 5’6″, 140-lb, size 4, 32A with nothing but good food and heavy lifts. I have guns and shoulders and a tight ass and flat tummy – but my boobs didn’t grow, and they ain’t gonna. And I eat like a man. Maybe I don’t have enough estrogen? Maybe I’m not eating enough fat or too much fat and not enough protein? I’m not getting on any bandwagon to make my titties bigger, I’m happy with my mosquito bites, they don’t get in the way of my heavy cleans ;)

    Girls who have big chests – rock on; girls who have small chests – rock on. Celebrate diversity. Matt, this post kindof sucked. It’s just superficial shit. No offense. You can rock on too. Just giving my $.02 for free.

    • Jennae, Could you post links to photos/videos of your Snatch…and your Clean and Jerk? I want to see your Scoop.

      • Forgive me Jennae. I couldn’t resist. That said, I would like to see your lifts.

  30. Yeah, I bet that’s what you want to see. I’m familiar with your comments on here – your reputation preceeds you (didn’t you misspell “lifts”?) I’m not nearly as strong as the Crossfitter ladies out there and don’t have videos of my own training- sorry to disappoint. My form is good, but I’m still moving forward with increasing weight. C&J is around 100 (haven’t gone for 1rm in a while), powerclean 130, DL won’t budge above 175, 1rm backsquat is stubborn at bodyweight. 3-4 pullups if i’m fresh. I’m not a she-beast, and I have a flat chest.. ’nuff said. Go chase the girls on youtube. ;) Surely you’re not lacking for girls to ogle… & my good husband doesn’t like to share.

    • It was a play on words, and I could care less if your chest if flat or not. I was joking around. There are plenty of women to ogle.

      You’re probably stronger than most Crossfit ladies. I don’t have a lot of respect for that program. In fact I have no respect for Crossfit. I can’t think of a better way to get injured. It is mostly based upon large volume and not going heavy. At 140 pounds, 4 pull ups is pretty good. A lot of people can’t even do one, so congratulations. At that weight 130 Power Clean is pretty good, too. That’s just about bodyweight for you. Do you Snatch? Or are you not really doing an Oly lift program but just incorporating these lifts into a broader type of program?

      • I’ve heard similar opinions about Crossfit. OSHA would close ‘em down if they knew what a jungle some of those facilities are like. But — for functional strength, I can see why it’s popular. I don’t do it myself but am mildly interested.

        In their defense, I will say I attended a few sessions of an (Oly-) Weightlifting class at my local Crossfit gym and the girls there are STRONG, deadlifting well over 250lbs, snatching 100+, squatting 180+, and C&Jing 175. Their numbers are formidable! I’m on the low end, but maybe if I upped my calories I could train harder. Meh. We’ll see.

        I do snatch… admittedly self-taught. Rippetoe’s book covers some of the physics of the clean and snatch in the back of his latest SS edition, studying those cues has helped a ton. My heaviest snatch has been 70lbs, so nothing to brag about. I think I could attempt a PR if conditions were right (well slept, reduced stress, no caffeine or alcohol for a while etc).

        I’m not following a program or working with anyone. 2 years ago I messed around with Lou Schuler’s NROL for Women and enjoyed it – that’s what got me turned on to lifting – then moved on to Rippetoe’s book and NROL for Life. Now I stick with rotating my “basics” with new stuff thrown in to combat boredom. Some plyos and parkour stuff is fun too, but I don’t recover as quickly as I used to – getting old, I guess.

        Thanks for the compliment on the pullups. I’ve always wanted to do a wide grip pull up, and it’s taken me 7+ months of work to be able to do one. Once the first one came along, I found I could knock out a couple in a set. My goal is a set of 10 — ha! Someday.

        I am slightly jealous of you guys that come along and can get under a bar twice as heavy as mine without even doing much to train for it. A little inspiring, intimidating, and just plain unfair that guys are naturally stronger. It’s good work for women… and takes a lot of the focus off basing your self-esteem on what size your boobs are. Lame.

  32. Hey Matt,

    You think Refeeding will increase my penis size? I’ve already got big enough man knockers.

    Just Kidding (But not really)

    • Good question Ron. Yeah, are there any men out there that can give a Testesmonial to having their Male genitalia increase in size due to Refeeding?

      • Doubt it makes much difference, but a bigger belly will make it look smaller.

  33. Excellent article. It reads really well and inspiring. I myself can’t get used to being 160 pounds. I went from 120 to 150 in about three months on RRARF, then adding the extra 10 pounds this summer about three years later. But now three years later I’m still struggling with this weight. Sure my breasts are massive now but so is my belly. I can’t seem to loose weight and I am just hoping that when my life becomes less stressful I’ll loose some of my belly and breast fat. Even my face is bigger with a double chin….I’m totally hating this….My metabolism isn’t healing either as my body temps are still low….But I’ve started exersicing a little more and hope this will help me loose some weight too…

    • Lisa. I’m very similar to you. 120 to 150 in 1/2 year, and 10 lbs. more just before last winter (am only 5 foot tall). Now I’ve got what most people here mentioned. A real butt, boobs, and belly, that I was genetically primed (not the belly though- that’s more cortisol) for but prevented for many years being VLC. Sex is better, digestion is better, thyroid and testosterone much better. I can still do yoga poses, but belly gets in the way. I haven’t had good sleep though, still having ‘stress’ dreams. The last big thing I have yet to conquer is the anemia (hair loss, major fatigue, slow healing leg bruises). I quit eating ‘regular’ meat and am aiming for what I haven’t been getting: tripe, tongue, shellfish, liver, etc. and I had to stop the dairy and eggs as regular staples. Just that allowed me to lose some weight w/o exercising. Am liking fruit now and noticed it helps me go to the bathroom more than once a day! Veggies are ok. Cardio is tough now, as I lose my breath just going up the stairs. I do just 10 or 15 min on the elliptical, but now will aim for 30 minutes. Instead of thinking about weight loss, am focusing on utilizing oxygen better.

  34. ETF-ing got them one size bigger. That’s just about enough for me, I hope they’ll stop. Thanks :D

  37. Yes much bigger breasts most definitely… Another interesting change is the shape of my hips before I lost a substantial amount of weight I was rather square shaped, now that I have regained my body shape is completely different, curves in the right spots and a lifted bubble butt, haha can’t complain!

  38. I was just wondering if the rest and refeeding would help underdeveloped breasts to reach maturity. As a teenager and young adult, I often limited my food intake to stay slim, and was vegan for several years. So, I’m hypothesizing that my stupid diets prevented my bust from developing into a womanly shape and size. Is it too late for them to mature? (I’m 29). I’d love to hear from anyone who’s baby-boobs have matured as a result of RRARFing. Thanks!

    • Happens all the time. I’ve even worked with a 60-year old woman whose breasts have gotten bigger while getting leaner.
