5. Opt for Healthier Soy.
Soy is a controversial food but I’m a big fan of it—if it’s eaten in the right form. Studies have shown that processed soy, the kind found in most soy milks and packaged soy products, may mimic the activity of estrogen in your body and throw your levels off—and even contribute to estrogen dominance.
Estrogen is crucial because it keeps your vagina well lubricated for intercourse, helps you reach orgasm, and keeps your breasts perky. Rule of thumb: avoid soy milks and yogurts with processed soy protein and soy isolate and choose whole-bean instead. And opt for safe soy sources, like edamame, tofu and tempeh, which contain high levels of protein, fiber, and breast- and heart-healthy isoflavones.
