YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

May 17, 2016

Hey there everybody. Sorry for the long pause but you know how it can be sometimes. Hope all is well with all of you. That saying “you are what you eat” had been on my mind for a while and it occurred to me that there could be some more natural things I could be doing to encourage the feminization process. So I did a little research online and found that certain foods encourage either more estrogens or testosterone production. It was my own transition that sparked this interest but this information could be useful to anyone with hormone imbalances such as cis-women entering menepous. Most of the foods to follow are healthy choices anyway and would probably be beneficial to almost everyone’s diet.

Following are two different list. The first contains foods that create more estrogens feminizing qualities. The second contains foods that stimulate more testosterone. So depending on your unique situation here are some foods you may want to incorporate or avoid depending on what you need.

FEMINIZING FOOD

  1. Flax seed (you can sprinkle these on salads or yogurt)
  2. Soy

a. tofu

b. soybeans

c. soy milk, etc. (it is worth noting I recently heard their may be a link between excess soy and certain cancers. Moderation is key.)

3. fruits & Vegetables

a. dried prunes         e. sprouts          i. cabbage

b. peaches                  f. squash

c. raspberries               g. green beans

d. strawberries          h. broccoli

Keep in mind girlfriends that this is not instant girlyness. It takes time and results vary. 😉 Always listen to your doctor and let them know about diet changes. Most of the things on these list would be considered healthy anyway so here’s to good eating and remember…YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.
