I bet you didn’t know that there is a specific class of vegetables that contain very specific phytonutrients that actually help to fight against abdominal fat.
Let me explain what they are and why…
First of all, if you’ve already grabbed a copy of my new Fat Burning Kitchen Program
then you may already know about how certain chemicals in our food supply and our environment, such as pesticides, herbicides, and certain petrochemicals from household cleaners, cosmetics, etc can act as xenoestrogens.
Xenoestrogens are chemicals that you are exposed to that have an estrogenic effect and excess exposure can cause hormone balance disruptions for both men and women. So these can wreak havoc in the body for both guys and gals.
These estrogenic chemicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis can stimulate your body to store belly fat, along with many other problems.
So here’s where this specific class of vegetables comes in handy…
One of those cool tricks that I teach in my Fat Burning Kitchen program is that cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, etc. contain specific and uniquephytonutrients such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C) that help to fight against these estrogenic compounds…
And by fighting against these belly fat stimulating estrogenic chemicals, this can help you fight against abdominal fat!
So there you go… just another excuse to do what mom always told you and eat more broccoli!
I’ve really learned to like brussells sprouts in the last year too… Melt a little grass-fed cheese on them and some garlic and they’re great!
In case you haven’t picked up your copy yet, I give away at least 12 other specific foods, teas, spices, etc that help to combat the xenoestrogens and can help you to burn abdominal fat faster in my new program… make sure to grab your copy before the price doubles tomorrow
Pass this onto your friends… I bet you’ll shock them with this article about xenoestrogens and how broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts can help to fight the battle against abdominal fat.
