Factor #4 Balancing hormones

How to Decrease Estrogen

1.Shed weight
Estrogen is stored in fat cells. It is supposed to do its work and then leave the body.( via the liver , which dismantles it .. called conjugation) But if we have excessive amounts of fat, it gets stored in the fat cells and continues to stimulate things to grow
2.Decrease fat in the diet.. especially from red meat and dairy
o When fat is only 14% of daily calories, PMS symptoms decline by 79%!
o Fat Inflames
o Inflammatiojn is the root cause of heart disease, cancer, Alzheimers and arthritis)
o Only reduce fat to 15% …If women reduce to 10%, they can become despondent or aggressive
o 25 to 30 grams of fat a day is ideal ( Fat Gram Counter book)
o spare ribs contain 67 grams of fat in one serving

3.Reduce quick-release carbohydrates
o this decreases insulin production ( which release insulin growth factor which causes an overproduction of cells)
o eat vegetables, fruits, protein , especially soy

4.Add important nutrients
