Do you have any of these symptoms:
- You feel tired all the time.
- You can’t lose weight.
- You suffer from severe pms.
- You have intense food cravings.
- You’re bloated and constipated.
Here are a few simple things you can do to help balance your hormones:
Eat at least three meals a day and always eat breakfast. Our metabolic rate naturally peaks at noon and slows after that. By eating breakfast you stimulate your metabolism. If you skip it, your metabolism will slow down into conservation mode and this can lead to weight gain.
Eat at least three servings of cruciferous vegetables a day like broccoli, kale or cauliflower. These veggies help bind excess estrogen and flush it out. Raw is best, though lightly boiled or steamed is ok, too. If you can find organic, pesticide-free vegetables that would be ideal as pesticides are also hormone disruptors.
Avoid parabens like methylparaben or propylparaban. These are found in cosmetics, shampoos and other personal care products. They are also known to be hormone disruptors. Read labels carefully.
