Rebalancing My Hormones Via Diet

With a focus on improving my micronutrients, I’m making the switch from grain fed to grass-fed meats and pasture raised poultry. Image courtesy of FreeDigitalPhoto.net and KEKO64.

Well I’m biting the bullet and making the move to pasture-raised and grass-fed meat free of hormones and antibiotics. I’ve resisted this move for a long time, mostly due to costs. When going low carb it made sense to focus on how to eat healthy and not sweat about breaking the bank.

Cost is still an issue, I realized we can afford the jump in our food bill if we cut back on going out to eat. A pretty good trade-off if you ask me.

Why the change?

I’m just starting to take a look at the micronutrients in my diet. Since I started eating low carb, I’ve focused on the macronutrients – fat, protein and carbs. But now that I’m in menopause, I’m starting to realize that vitamins and minerals play a part in rebalancing my hormones.

Grass-fed meats are more nutritious (higher levels of micronutrients and omega-3) than what I typically buy.

This is the first step towards resetting my hormones. I’m considering a few more dietary changes come 2017 – giving up alcohol and caffeine, limiting cream and cheese and possibly adding a little more fruit. 

I know I’ll never go back to my hormone levels before the surgery. That’s not what I’m aiming for. I’m looking for what works for me at this point in my life.

  1. Great move! You won’t regret it..
    (I certainly recommend you cut out ALL alcohol & dairy and don’t go back to fruit, except for berries)
