Fat Loss Tip:  Take fiber to reduce estrogen dominance related fat stores.  Excess fat storage on the lower body (aptly named “Estro-Ass”” by CFW instructor Meagan K.), pec, and tricep indicate estrogen dominance.  These fat stores are often referred to as “stubborn” fats.  They are harder to lose because high estrogen levels are protecting them.  So the are less effected by common diet changes like simply lowering your calories or reducing carbs.

Adding fibers that are good for detoxification, like flax seed, chia seed, apple pectin, carrot, beets, cranberry seeds and psyllium, help clear excess estrogen.  Many of us do not get enough fiber.  Eating more more fibrous carbs (veggies) will help, but adding and rotating the aforementioned fibers will help get things moving…  or maybe lessen some of that unwanted movement (jiggle).

We are surrounded by, ingest, and absorb many chemical compounds that mimic estrogen in our bodies.  They build up and overwhelm the liver’s capability to clear them.  Hormone based birth controls also increase estrogen.  The hormones our meat sources are full of are mostly estrogen.  Have you cooked food in a teflon coated pan lately?  How about nuked a plastic dish in the microwave?  The articles below will help you better understand this issue and how to clean up your environment.

For a complete estrogen reducing protocol, see Cody, Melissa, or t. for a BioSig consultation.
