Thanks for your reply !
Here is the thing, a long time ago, I developed anemia, so I ate lots of
liver (it was not organic/grass fed) Then I developed
some problems because of the excess amount of estrogen in my body.
I found out that supposedly liver tends to store
up estrogen. I really want to eat a traditional
type diet, but I really cannot buy grass fed type meats, so I am
left with lots of beans. And then I end up feeling bloated & usually
gain weight on beans & brown rice. Recently, I also found out
that beans also have an estrogenic effect (not as much
as liver, but they do). So, I feel like I am in a no win situation.
I guess I could increase my exercise, but usually for that
my body tends to crave meats (to get enough energy)
So, please tell me what do you do to stay in shape,
and what do you eat to be able to sustain enough energy
to workout every single day. And keep LOW estrogen
levels. It seems to me, that to detox my liver
to kick the excess estrogen out, I have to avoid lots
of animal protein, but then I have no energy to workout.
If I increase my animal protein I would tend to increase
my estrogen levels.
Any advice you can give me will be appreciated.
I am really desperate, I do not want to have surgery.
