As we have discussed in the 3rd installment of Stubborn Fat we will continue with more information in the series.
Your success depends on understanding how to detox your liver, eat foods that aid in reducing estrogen, and exercise.
On this stubborn fat reduction plan, you are going to consume as many anti-estrogenic foods as possible and eliminate as many estrogenic foods as you can. In addition to stimulating greater fat loss, this type of eating will also help to detoxify your liver. Without cleaning out the liver and reducing the chemical build up, your liver becomes overburdened and your fat loss can hit the wall.
There are a few stages in stubborn fat removal, so here we go...
First and foremost you must eat unprocessed foods such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds, and occasional wild salmon. This starts the detoxification of the liver as you eliminate all processed foods, grains, farm-fed livestock, and chemically altered foods. Try to eat as much organic food as possible.
The base of your anti-stubborn fat plan is to consume an enormous amount of cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussel sprouts, as these vegetables are very anti- estrogenic. Include citrus fruits such as grapefruit, oranges, and pineapple, because they have enzymes in cofactors that aid your body against the radical damage and help your liver detox.
Supplement your diet with omega-3 fatty acids from wild caught salmon and flaxseed. You can also take an omega-3 fatty acid supplement such as Carlson's oil, available at mercola.com
Eating raw nuts and seeds, avocados, and olive oil also improves your body's function. In addition, eating green leafy vegetables, whole oats and barley, legumes (no soy), and spices such as turmeric (cancer fighter), milk thistle (liver detoxer), dandelion root (natural diuretic), and ginger increases loss of stubborn fat by decreasing estrogen in your body.
There are many estrogen inhibitors that can help you decrease body fat quickly. According to Ori Hofmekler, consuming these foods will greatly improve your ability to remove stubborn fat and decrease estrogenic effects. Hofmekler says there are additional estrogenic inhibitors such as chrysin (passion flower), apigene (chamomile), Quercetin (onions, garlic); all of these cofactors can work together to detoxify your liver and get the stubborn fat off.
To simplify, systemize, and organize this information, Hofmekler developed an anti-estrogen, anti-stubborn fat program with three stages:
Stage 1 Defense
Eat Anti-Estrogenic Foods - Estrogen inhibitors include - Cruciferous vegetables - Passion flower - Citrus fruits - Chamomile flower - Omega-3 oils - Wild catch salmon - Organic dairy
Stage 2 Defense - Additional Foods That Promote Anti-estrogenic Hormones:
Raw nuts and seeds
Olives and olive oil
Rice germ oil
Wheat germ oil
Stage 3 - Defense Foods That Serve as Cofactors and Promote Liver Detoxification:
Spices (turmeric, oregano, thyme, rosemary, and sage)
Fruits (citrus, berries, apples, pineapple)
Whole oats and barley
Legumes (no soy)
Herbs (dandelion root, ginger, alma berries, milk thistle)
