Breast tissue is primarily made of fat. Many women gain and lose weight in this area more quickly than the rest of their bodies. Heavy breasts can be burdensome and cause back pain and bad posture. While exercise is a key component to losing this fat, a clean diet is also important. You should know which foods are helpful at burning breast fat, as well as fat elsewhere.

Fruits

Fruits are one of the healthiest foods to reduce extra breast weight, notes ShapeFit.com. They contain plenty of antioxidants and are sweet, so they are great for snacks or dessert. They do contain sugar, but not the high-fructose variety like those in juices, soda and processed foods. Apples, oranges, grapes, nectarines, bananas and berries are examples of diet fruits. Aim for the fresh variety rather than canned as these contain a lot of high-calorie preservatives. Try to get two or three servings of fruit per day.

Vegetables

Vegetables, like fruits, are also rich with antioxidants and nutrients yet have fewer carbohydrates. This is helpful when trying to reduce breast size. Spinach, broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts and cauliflower are some nonstarch veggies that keep you healthy while trying to drop extra weight.

Fish

Fish is extremely low in calories and a high-quality protein source. As long as you employ cooking techniques like baking, broiling, steaming or grilling instead of frying, fish are an excellent addition to a breast-reduction diet. Try salmon, mackerel, tuna, herring or trout.

Nuts

Mixed nuts are a great source of healthy fats such as monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and omega-3 fats. Almonds, walnuts, Brazil nuts and macadamia nuts are some nuts that you can incorporate into your diet. Remember, they should not be salted or coated with sugar.
