Clothes, hair, and makeup aren’t the only ways to enhance your femininity. The foods you eat can also have an impact!
Did you know that over 300 common foods contain plant estrogens known as phytoestrogens?
These foods and herbs have been used for natural hormone balancing for centuries. And since phytoestrogens mimic the effects of estrogen, they could potentially lead to feminizing effects such as:
- Breast growth
- Softer skin
- Redistribution of body fat
- Fuller, thicker hair
While phytoestrogens aren’t a substitute for transgender hormone replacement therapy, these foods can help give you a feminine boost.
As an added bonus, they’re also super healthy and can help maintain an ideal weight. (Very important to your overall female appearance!)
Here are 5 phytoestrogen-rich foods worth including in your MTF diet:
Among all foods, flaxseed is the richest source of lignans, which are a type of phytoestrogen. Flaxseed is also high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.
To get the full phytoestrogenic effect, you should consume ground flaxseed (instead of whole flaxseed) for easier digestion.
Try sprinkling ground flaxseed on cereal, yogurt, fruit, and salads. (It’s super tasty!)
Soy is the most popular high-phytoestrogen food. There are tons of soy foods available, so it’s easy to work them into your diet. Here are some options to try:
- Soy beans
- Soy milk
- Soy yogurt
- Soy protein powder
Fruits and Veggies
Many common fruits and vegetables contain phytoestrogens, giving you another reason to eat your fruits and veggies.
High-phytoestrogen fruits include:
- Dried fruits (especially dried apricots, dates, and prunes)
High-phytoestrogen veggies include:
- Alfalfa sprouts
- Winter squash
- Green beans
- Collard greens
Lentils (and beans in general) are rich in phytoestrogens. They’re also low cal and high in protein and fiber, making them a great MTF diet staple.
Yams are another healthy, phytoestrogen-rich food. In fact, a particular type of yam (wild yam) is one of the most commonly-used herbs for female hormone balancing.
While not technically a food, many teas are also high in phytoestrogens. Check out your local health food store for fenugreek tea, fennel tea, or licorice tea.
Or if you’re feeling ambitious, try making Bustea. This recipe was originally shared by Dr. James A. Duke in his classic book, The Green Pharmacy. The tea is concocted of various “bust boosting” herbs, hence the name!
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup fenugreek
- Dash each of anise, basil, caraway, fennel, marjoram, licorice, lemongrass, dill
Combine the ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil. After it cools, add honey and lemon to taste. Dr. Duke recommends drinking 1-2 cups per day.
Note: Since Bustea is very high in phytoestrogens, I don’t recommend over-consuming it if you take prescription hormones. (Always speak with your doctor before combining herbs and hormones or other prescription meds.)

I found a simple idea that worked for me,
its called, the two Q’s
1 is quality
2 is quantity
I ate food of good quality and in small amounts,
it worked lost 55 lbs with walking about 1/2 mile a day too.
Plus it keeps me much more healthy in my golden years.
I started “borrowing” my sisters birth control when I was 15 and it seemed to change my body quite a bit. 4 years later when I married my desires to be feminine became even more pronounced, wearing my wives lingerie when I was alone. I began using fenugreek, soy, tofu, flaxseed, and bust cream. Over the last 2 years my breast have grown beyond expectations. I was excited when I was able to fill my wives “B” cup bra’s, but I kept growing and bought my own “C” cup bra’s. My wife seemed to enjoy them when we are in bed, but the rest of the time she eyes them with odd expressions. I can’t wear tees anymore, I show too much and I never go swimming anymore. My wife has never said anything to me and we have a good relationship but I know she wonders, do you think I should confess to her how much I want to be her lesbian lover instead of her husband? I worship her and would die if she left me!! I really desire to be her BFF instead of a husband and a man……
It’s best you tell all or how you feel about benning a woman my wife knows I have Implants 38cshe will play with them and kiss them but I can’t dress as a woman she will not be a lesbian I don’t want to lose her So I must not do it in front of her it’s not easy telling someone who you are and want to be with out them getting upset I would do it being slow and a little and a little at the time but if you are not up front you may cause trouble you know how will feel more than me she may if you do it a little at a time
The hardest part is Beening honest when married my wife knows I have implants a 38cwhich will play with and will kiss them but as far as I dressed up she hit the roof she was not going to be married to a lesbo me wearing my own panties was out of the question and to be clean shaven was a no no like you I don’t want to lose her she is good to me so you may need to do it when she not around I have one more chance I do like being a woman but if you wife isn’t on board you will have troubles in you relationship
So far I’ve been reluctant to “confess” but I have made subtle changes, I never had much body hair anyway but I used a cream to remove what was there. When she noticed my chest was bare, which by the way accents my breasts size, she asked if I removed the hair. I told her that they did some test at the doctors and the connectors wouldn’t stick so they shaved me partially and when I got home I noticed how strange it looked to have only part shaved so I did the rest. She asked what the test were for and I told her I was concerned about my breasts growing and my loss of libido. She asked what the outcome was so I told her that they said I had a hormone imbalance with very low testosterone but I was not a candidate for replacement therapy because I was diabetic and I would probably notice more feminine traits and changes in my body as time went on. She seemed to buy that and now appears to be checking out my body more. I do feel more feminine and I think she notices, but we seem to be getting along better than ever and I am starting to feel more like her female lover than a husband, I just hope she continues to enjoy the new me and the continued changes as I ramp up my estrogen levels.
Hi Lucille honey goodness girlfriend I’m not sure why or if this is the right area to ask you a question of course you might not have a clue as I surely don’t know why but after taking the fenugreek capsules from Wal-Mart the last couple of years and then discontinuing use of them a couple of months ago maybe more I’m not really certain I’ve recently had a little more growth of my breasts not much really but I’ve noticed the small change in not complaining at all more is always better in this area well to a point at least for me you do seem so knowledgeable in these areas I’m just curious really I’ve yet to find the Macs root for my hips and bootie I keep looking at Wal-Mart but never seen to find it there I do go to Walgreens now and then perhaps they might have it I’m not sure I can afford it but anyway I Love You so much Lucille you’ve been so much help I’m no knockout unlike so many of the girls that Grace your site but I’m so glad I found your site sweetheart when I did you truly saved my life I think life has been so cruel to me although I’m sure you know some girls that have been through similar or worse cruelty I really don’t think my life has been all that cruel but I’m stronger because of it I think anyway I truly Love You Lucille your the best friend we girls have in my opinion Love MJ
Earlier this year, I started using Sublime Bust with my breast massage, and got good results with it, but I had a couple of bottles of fennel extract that were no longer being used. They sat around for a long time, and then I heard you can make fennel tea, so I read the instructions on the bottle. It said you can put it in water and drink it, so I started using it in the water I use to take my fenugreek and red clover capsules. About 2/3 of an eyedropper in a small glass of water, 3 times a day, and it has seemed to give my breasts a little more oomph!
Will flaxseeds reduce breast size in men or will it enlarge it?
