Estrogen in foods? What’s on the dirty dozen list!
Believe it or not there’s a “hormone battle” taking place inside all of our
bodies on a daily basis.
And long term health studies have concluded that…
* Men are seeing rapid decreases in testosterone
* Women are at a much higher risk than ever for breast cancer
* Even young girls are reaching puberty 6-12 months earlier than they used to.
All because we’re being exposed to chronically high levels of hormones
(ex. estrogen) through a variety of different pathways that I bet you’re
not even aware of.
Big corporations and agri-businesses are pumping you full of hormones
without you probably even knowing it.
The primary culprit is estrogen (a “female” hormone) that occurs
naturally in both men and women.
But at heightened levels, estrogen causes all sorts of health problems,
which forces your body to store and hold onto more stubborn belly fat
– and pockets of cellulite (even in men).
In other words, our modern way of living is forcing bad estrogen levels to rise
dramatically and sneak their way into your body whether you like it or not.
– Pesticides on your foods contain estrogen-mimicking compounds…
– Many of the plastics we all use on a daily basis actually leaks
(also referred to as “leaching”) synthetic estrogen into our systems…
– Cows are given overdoses of extra estrogen so they can produce milk
(that you and I drink) at a much faster rate…
– And cattle that are supplemented with estrogen and other unfriendly
hormones to prep them for your dinner table at a cheaper price…
In fact, the meat of hormone-treated cows have been found to contain
up to 5 TIMES the amount of estrogen as untreated cattle.
Nasty stuff that we all should be aware of.
So here are 4 easy diet-tweaks you can use, right now, to reduce
bad estrogen (and other hidden hormones) that put your health
at risk and stop your body from losing weight.
#1: Buy more organic food (fruits and vegetables). I know,
I know it can be a bit pricey, so focus on the Dirty Dozen which includes:
Can you choose the “Dirty Dozen?
Estrogen in foods? Buy Organic from the “Dirty Dozen” List Below:
The Dirty Dozen list includes: Nectarines, celery, apples, lettuce,
strawberries, grapes, blueberries, peaches, potatoes, bell peppers,
cherry tomatoes and cucumbers.
Buying “non-organic”? Make sure you stick to the clean fifteen:
Onions, asparagus, avocados, watermelon, cantaloupe, yams, peas,
locally-farmed corn, mushrooms, kiwis, squash, eggplant, pineapple,
oranges, and cabbage.
#2: AVOID corn-fed beef and all farm-raised fish. Buy
grass-fed meat and wild-caught fish – or buy from a local farmer
or farmer’s market. You don’t have to be an organic “freak” or
break the bank nowadays to make this happen.
In fact, you can get some of the BEST tasting food in the world
(even meats and fish) from local farmer’s markets at dirt cheap
prices… especially at the end of the day when they’re closing up.
They need to get rid of all they can, as fast as they can, because they
don’t want to take it back to the farm or store. Nice little trick that
Karen and I like to use.
#3: Do not buy plastics with a recycling symbol with a
3, 6, or 7 listed on it.
They can “leach” plastic particles into your system that can be VERY estrogenic.
#4: Lastly, rid your life of all the “hidden” physical
AND mental garbage that could be sabotaging your health.
For men, it all starts with lowering BAD estrogen to get your testosterone
at optimal levels.
If you don’t, you’ll feel cold, tired, and it will be impossible to gain muscle
and lose fat. Not to mention no sex drive 🙁
For women, there are 3 “triggers” that you must avoid if you want
to reboot your fat-burning metabolism, reclaim your health, and
overcome emotional obstacles that are STOPPING your fat-loss:
