Soy and Estrogen
« on: July 24, 2013, 11:24:03 am »
My mother is a total health nut.  We used to eat a lot of soy, and the other day over dinner she said that soy is full of estrogen.  I almost choked on my organic, local lettuce!   ;) 
What I am wondering is if there are foods with testosterone in them?  I really can't stand my curvy hips and legs and don't get me started on the rest of my body! 

Thanks :)

Chilli peppers :)

By the way, Estrogen, or more precisely phytoestrogen level in soy is very very low - otherwise all MtF part of this forum would be sitting on soy diet :)

I don't know of any foods that mimic testosterone

It's true what she said, it has Estrogen.

You want reverse? Eat CAULIFLOWER & Brocoli, it's highly ANTI-ESTROGEN.
