Not loosing weight on breasts, is it because I eat to much of one type of food?
Dear Doc,

Hope you well and that you could maybe take a few minutes to help me. I'm 1.7m in height and weigh about 53 kg. Don't eat red meat, chicken & fish 1 - 2 a week max. I've lost weight to the point where my bum bones are hurting me when I sit but my breasts are as big as always. I have bread every day and chips max 4 times a week. Am I maybe consuming too much of one particular type of food type like carbohydrates.

Please advise me what I can do to loose weight there too.

Your help would be appreciated,

Dear Mac
Thank you for your good wishes. The problem with the so-called female 'fat depots' is that they concentrate fat in specific areas such as the thighs, buttocks and breasts. If your present BMI is already dangerously low (i.e. 18,3) then you obviously don't need to lose more weight and you could actually gain a few kg to get back into a higher range. Your ideal weight would be 64 kg, i.e. 11 kg more than you are weighing now. If the size of your breasts is a problem, then I can only suggest that you consult a plastic surgeon to have them reduced.
Best regards
