2 Easy Ways to STOP Estrogen Related Fat Storage

5/20/15 –

Have you ever noticed how over the years certain parts of your body
will lean out and develop incredibly fast, while other body
parts NEVER seem to change no matter how hard you
exercise or diet?
There is a very high likelihood that you may be suffering from something called Estrogen Dominance.
Symptoms include decreased libido, sluggish metabolism,
and trouble sleeping.
But the most common side-effect of Estrogen Dominance is
excess fat storage in your most stubborn spots, like the
butt, hips and thighs.
Here are 2 easy steps you can take, starting today, that
will help you STOP estrogen related fat storage and lose
more fat from your biggest problem areas:

Step #1: Reduce or eliminate the two foods that raise 

bad estrogen inside your body 

It should come as no surprise that consuming too many refined carbohydrate foods and simple sugars can make you retain fat and feel tired.
But even worse?
Sugar can also cause an increase in the conversion of
testosterone to estradiol – the form of estrogen that
increases fat storage.
No surprise here if you are familiar with Toned in Ten’s Nutrition philosophy, so as usual, avoid all refined sugar intake at least 5-6 days per week. The occasional splurge is encouraged!  🙂

Step #2: Eat foods that contain Diindolymethane or DIM (fights against 

BAD estrogen) 

Cruciferous veggies like spinach, cabbage, kale, bok choy,
broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower help
your body rid itself of bad estrogen.
Broccoli also contains unique phytonutrient compounds such
as indole-3-carbinol that help the liver to remove these estrogenic
Diindolymethane or DIM, also helps to prevent aromatase
(conversion of testosterone to fat storing estrogen).
These same phytonutrients also contain potent anti (breast)
cancer fighting properties as well.
I know I sound like a broken record, but eat MORE veggies!
You’ll fight against fat-storing estrogen dominance, inflammation, and aging.
