What Causes Excess Estrogen?
Estrogenic Foods and Chemicals Make You Fat and Sick.
Certain Compounds in Plants Can Help You Stay Lean and Healthy.

All people are exposed to estrogen-mimicking chemicals called xenoestrogens. Known for their fattening and sickening effects, these chemicals are found in the air, car emissions, household products, paints, nail polishes, lotions, soaps, plastics, food and water; it’s almost impossible to avoid them.
Obesity and bad diets are major contributors to excess estrogen. Obesity is associated with increased estrogen production in fat cells, and bad diets are associated increased intake of estrogenic foods and chemicals.
As years go by, there is a gradual loss of hormones that balance estrogen –progesterone in women and testosterone in men – which results in excess of unbalanced estrogen. Aging is also associated with increased aromatase enzyme activity which further increase the levels of accumulated estrogen.
With age, there is increased expression of the aromatase enzyme, which converts androgens to estrogen in both sexes; leaving the body with an excess of renegade estrogen. And as the estrogen cup is already full, the insult of estrogenic chemicals leads to an inevitable “spill over” effect.
The spill over of estrogenic substances into the circulation overwhelms the body and diminishes its capacity to regulate weight and sustain health. The “thickening” of the female body and the “softening” of the male body are symptoms of that effect. Women gain fat in the waist, lower butt, upper thighs and back of the arms, whereas men tend to gain it in the belly and chest.
Estrogen is a fat-storing hormone that turns adipose tissues stubbornly resistant to fat burning. These tissues are formed in a vicious cycle manner where estrogen promotes enlargement of fat tissues which produce more estrogen in their fat cells to promote even more fat gain, and so on… even diet and exercise fail to remove that fat.
Excess estrogen causes growth of estrogen sensitive tissues such as fat tissues, mammary glands, endometrium, ovaries and the prostate gland. The consequences include fat gain (in both genders), formation of cysts in the breast, endometriosis and ovarian fibroids in women, and prostate enlargement in men. If untreated, such conditions can lead to malignancy.
The Anti-Estrogenic Diet was created with the mission to protect against the adverse effects of estrogen. Based on a special nutritional plan, it provides guidelines of how to attack the core of the problem and block the process that causes excess estrogen in the body.
It is now known that certain dietary compounds, namely plant estrogen inhibitors, can help counteract estrogen by inhibiting its receptors and shifting its metabolism in favor of beneficial metabolites rather than toxic metabolites.
The concept of human nutrition must be re-defined to accommodate the estrogen issue. New guidelines should direct people how to balance their diet with estrogen inhibiting foods and supplements.
