The following 30 days you will be eating a diet rich in foods that will help optimize, balance and detox your hormones. You will be following a strict low carb paleo/ketogenic diet with intermittent fasting and carb ups.
The meal plans will incorporate hormone balancing elixirs, high fiber and foods that are known to help detox harmful hormones.
Components to the 30 Day meal plan
Studies show that a diet that is low in fiber causes estrogen levels to be higher, while a diet high in fiber results in decreased estrogen levels in the bloodstream. This is because excess estrogen is excreted in the bowel. When stool remains in the bowel for a longer time, as in constipation, the estrogen is reabsorbed. Studies have shown that women on a high-fiber diet have lower levels of circulating estrogen. Your goal is to consume 20+ grams of fiber each day
No processed sugar
Sugar and refined carbohydrates are best known for their effects on weight gain, but these foods are frequently at the root of your worst PMS and menopause symptoms, too, especially when it comes to fatigue, cravings, and mood swings. Sugar disrupts one of the most powerful hormones in the body: insulin. And insulin is closely connected to all of the other hormones in your body, including estrogen and testosterone. Both of which, when you have excess, will cause weight gain especially in the belly. For the next 30 days you will be eating NO REFINED SUGARS!
I know this one’s tough for many of you but alcohol not only effects your liver which in turn effects your hormones but studies show that even moderate consumption of alcohol can lead to higher estrogen levels. Not only that women process alcohol at a much, much slower rate than men. This means the physical impact of alcohol is much stronger and faster for women than for men.
Research consistently shows that drinking alcoholic beverages — beer, wine, and liquor — increases a woman’s risk of hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer. Alcohol can increase levels of estrogen and other hormones associated with hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer. Alcohol also may increase breast cancer risk by damaging DNA in cells.
Eating a variety of foods in healthy fats is key to keeping your hormones in check. Your body needs various types of fats to create hormones, including saturated fat and cholesterol. Not only are these essential fats fundamental building blocks for hormone production, but they keep inflammation levels low, boost your metabolism and promote weight loss. Healthy fats have the opposite effect of refined carbohydrates, which lead to inflammation and can mess with the balance of your hormones.
During the next 30 days you will be introduced to something called hormone elixirs. These hormone elixirs are easy ways to drink your way to hormonal balance! Feel free to stick with a couple that taste good to you throughout the entire cleanse!
