Let's try to clarify some of the most debated issues among us women. Most of us find it really difficult or even impossible to lose that excess fat that accumulates in the leg and buttock area.
Keep reading the article and I will reveal some little secrets that will leave you speechless. Please do not underestimate the importance of everything I am about to reveal to you.
Estrogen is the hormone by which body fat is developed especially in the quadriceps, hamstrings and buttocks. This hormone can be induced by many factors, some that we can control and therefore avoid while others cannot. Let's start with what we can avoid; first of all nutrition.
A high-sugar diet has been shown to increase many diseases such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Underlying all this is precisely the increase in estrogen levels.
1. Avoid sugars
Eliminate processed sugars, fat-free / low-fat products from your diet. Increase your protein intake, eat organic meats, oily fish and good fats contained in foods such as nuts, avocado and coconut oil. Eat lots of vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and watercress to create alkalinity.
2. Monitor toxicity
Take into account the toxicity of the environment around you. Xenoestrogen is a type of estrogen found in some pesticides, fuels, drugs, and plastics.
These things can have a really negative impact and cause the body to increase estrogen. We can start by trying to avoid using certain plastic containers, drinking from plastic bottles, using microwave ovens and other such things.
Furthermore, in the gym it would be good to avoid training on the carpet and elliptical, in fact this in addition to increasing estrogen levels, also releases an enormous amount of oxidative stress, causing an increase in fat in the abdominal area.
3. Train with weights
So does training decrease or increase estrogen formation? My advice is to train smart.
Women spend a lot of their time worrying about fat on their legs and buttocks but at the same time they think that sitting on an exercise bike or walking on a carpet can help them lose fat.
In fact, for this purpose, it would be good to train with weights, alternating strength training with resistance training, with longer work intervals in order to increase the lactate capacity.
4. Avoid exposure to metals
Make sure that the methylation and immune system processes are working well. Methylation regulates hormones, especially estrogen and testosterone. Low methylation can induce increased estrogen and has also been shown to cause increased risk of breast cancer.
The same can happen to men with poor methylation, reducing testosterone levels and increasing the risk of prostate cancer. To avoid this it is important to improve your methylation process, avoiding exposure to chemicals and heavy metals.
5. Drink more water
The minerals the body absorbs through water allow it to reduce toxicity in the liver and the rest of the body. Water plays a fundamental role, allowing a much more efficient work of the detoxification process.
Well yes sir, follow these simple tips and you will get great results!
