Hi guys and gals. I have a couple of questions about an anti-estrogenic diet.

Cruciferous vegetables are reputed to be anti-estrogenic. But Chris Kresser made the point in a post last year that too much insoluble fibre is a bad idea for someone with digestive issues (I suspect I have mild problems in that area.)

What cruciferous vegetables would be safest, that is, what has the most soluble fible? And has anyone any general experience or input about an anti-estrogen diet?

Cheers.

PS. Here's what Kresser wrote. A lot of the safe/safer vegetables are the cruciferous ones.

Vegetables (as well as some fruits) are often high in insoluble fiber. While soluble fiber can be soothing for the gut, consuming large amounts of insoluble fiber when your gut is inflamed is a little bit like rubbing a wire brush against an open wound. Ouch.

Vegetables that are high in insoluble fiber include:

Greens (spinach, lettuce, kale, mesclun, collards, arugula, watercress, etc.)
Whole peas, snow peas, snap peas, pea pods
Green beans
Kernel corn
Bell peppers
Eggplant
Celery
Onions, shallots, leeks, scallions, garlic
Cabbage, bok choy, Brussels sprouts
Broccoli
Cauliflower
The vegetables that are high in soluble fiber, but lower in insoluble fiber (and thus tend to be safer for those with gut issues) include:
Carrots
Winter squash
Summer squash (especially peeled)
Starchy tubers (yams, sweet potatoes, potatoes)
Turnips
Rutabagas
Parsnips
Beets
Plantains
Taro
Yuca
