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 feel so femme i just totally love reading Your blogs!
I have taken 4 fenugreek daily for about 4 years and saw palmetto, 3 daily for nearly 20 yrs. I have nice B’s now, and I noticed in some old pictures that my breasts were visible in shirts even in 1997, 10 years before my transition and awareness that I had always been a FEMALE person.
I started 2mg estradiol 7 weeks ago and spironolactone 50mg 2xdaily. Use the estradiol once daily sublingually.
I am expecting to have C’s within 6 months, but may actually to to the D’s which I have when I use my breastforms.
I wear lavender leggings, black fishnet pantyhose, and black or nude kneehighs. Sometimes wear nude thighhighs.
Hi, Lucille and all! I just started on the program and love it (been hearing the hypnosis tracks for 3 days) I see lots of people interested in breast growth. Although I do love my nice budding titties, my greatest concern and goals right now have to do with having full female buttocks, curvy hips and the tiniest waist possigle. Any advice for a beautiful bottom?
This is too funny! I wanted to read what foods are feminizing and I find that I already am eating a lot of two of them, namely, soy and fruits. And I do have a rather slender form which others have described as feminine.
Thanks for your advice on this and other subjects Lucille.
“This ones for you baby” Lucille, sweetheart this pic. was taken about 2 years ago about 6 months after starting your program. It’s been about three years since i first joined you. Now I can only imagine how many “girls” you have helped. Keep it up hon.
