How Boobs Can Help You Eat Better!

posted on: September 03, 2016. posted in: Nutrition

I've got a little challenge for you.

Imagine meeting someone who has never seen or felt or experienced a boob before. I know, I know, we all have. But stick with me on this and just imagine this person has no concept of a boob's shape, size or anything else about it. To them a boob is a complete unknown.

So here's your challenge...

How would you describe a boob them?

How would you help him visualise what a boob looks like?

I'm guessing you might say something like this...

"Well, a boob comes in three parts. There's the main, fleshy part of the breast, there's the areola and then there's the nipple."

If they then asked...

"What size are the three parts???"

You would probably reply with something like...

"Boobs come in all shapes and sizes. You get big breasts and medium breasts and small breasts. You get big areola and medium areola and small areola. And you get big nipples and medium nipples and small nipples."

And if they then wanted to know...

"What is the right size and ratio for all three parts? There must be a one-size-fits-all rule or magic formula for a boob??"

You'd have to work hard to get the message across that there isn't a "right size and ratio" because they're all different. They're all UNIQUE. 

So you might say...

"Some women have very large breasts, with small areolas and large nipples. Some women have very small breasts with large areolas and medium nipples. Some women have medium breasts with small areolas and large nipples. It's impossible to say what the right size and ratio is, because boobs come in all shapes, sizes and ratios! And if you picked 1000 women off the street, you'd never find two boobs exactly the same. There is no such thing as a ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL boob!"


And the moral of the story.

Everyone understands what a boob looks like. That it comes in three main parts. But the size and ratio of those parts varies immensely from person to person.

Nutrition is exactly the same.

It comes in three main parts - carbohydrate, protein and fat. And the size and ratio of those parts will vary immensely from person to person.

So when a client asks me...

"What is the right amount and ratio of carbs / protein / fat??"

I show them two images and ask....

"What are we looking at here?"


To which they reply...

"Two boobs!"

And then I explain...

"Nope. You're looking at two different macronutrient ratios. The left is one quantity and ratio of carbohydrate, protein and fat. The right is a completely different quantity and ratio of carbohydrate, protein and fat. But they're both nutrition! And they both work!" 

So the important thing... the main thing... is to avoid thinking there's a one-size-fits-all rule or single magic formula for how to eat.


So when a slimming club, or eating plan, or nutrition guru or PT claims to have the magic formula for success, in some one-size-fits-all plan...

"Go low carb, high protein, high fat!" 

"No go high carb, moderate protein, low fat!"

"No no no go moderate carb, low protein, high fat!"

Doubt it.

Reject it.

And understand that to assume all nutrition is the same, is as ridiculous as to assume all boobs are the same.

The truth?

Nutrition and boobs are unique to the individual.

And that's what makes them beautiful!
