DIM for Lower Body Fat Loss

May 12, 2015 3 min read 33 Comments

I rarely even ask a new female client what her problem areas are; I already know -- lower abdomen, hips, butt and thighs. Duh! This is one area we women carry significantly more fat than men. It's our higher estrogen levels that encourages fat storage in area. It's healthy (and beautiful) for women to have curves down there. It's also a biological necessity in case of pregnancy and childbirth.

But many women struggle with excess fat accumulation in their lower bodies. I've worked with women who were incredibly lean but stored a high percentage of fat in legs and hips. One woman I knew was almost skin and bones in her upper body. It seemed her lower body held all her body fat. Her hips and thighs were greatly disporpate to the rest of her. No matter what we did in the gym, nothing changed.

I trust that by now you understand that you can not really spot reduce. Sit ups won't get rid of your belly. Leg exercises won't slim legs. Weight loss comes from where it wants to, and not necessarily from where you want it to. Where you lose and store fat is dependent on a few things: genetics, gender, lifestyle and hormones. By making a few tweaks you can possibly recalibrate your body's fat burning and storing preferences.

Increasingly, hormone imbalance, especially those involving estrogen, is a growing problem in modern society amongst men and women alike. Our bodies make their own estrogen but further production can be stimulated by chemical estrogen we encounter in our everyday life. Chemical estrogens like PBA, parabens and phthalates are found in plastic containers, cosmetics, shampoo, personal care products like soaps and lotions and pesticides. Pollution in our air and water can also mess with our hormone balance. Read this article for 10 tips to lower estrogen toxic load.

While Estrogen dominance inhibits weight-loss and encourages fat storage on the lower body it also has some other very serious health concerns. Estrogen imbalance has been linked to a variety of diseases and cancer -- in particular prostrate, colorectal, breast and ovarian.

Introducing Diindolymethane, or DIM for short. DIM is a powerful nutrient found in broccoli, cauliflower, and other cruciferous vegetables that has a direct effect on hormonal balance and can minimise the negative effects of excess estrogen. Studies have shown that DIM aids in better metabolisation of estrogen.

As such DIM has been prescribed for menstruation discomfort, menopause symptoms, PMS, acne, enlarged prostate in men and to fight against cancers. Fat-loss benefits aside, many health care professional believe that most women should consider taking DIM to ease many common female discomforts.

Men also sometimes battle high estrogen levels, especially as they age. DIM is also prescribed in such cases.

By straightening out estrogen-imblance DIM prevents estrogen's preference for fat storage on thighs. It sounds almost to good to be true but can personally attest to it effectiveness. I've always had thick, fatty legs in relation to the rest of my body. I would often have ripped, washboard abs but flabby thighs and it drove me nuts! I could never get my legs to look ripped, even if I was everywhere else. I started supplementing with DIM about 4 months ago and saw a slight visible improvement in my legs.

It is advised that the best results are seen after 6 months of supplementing with DIM. I will definitely continue to take it and suggest it to my many female clients who suffer that same fate.

Just because you have fatty thighs, it doesn't necessarily mean you have an estrogen imbalance. To be sure, have you doctor do some tests.

This is part where I tell you DIM is not a magic pill. It will not burn off thunder thighs by itself. It is not what anyone would call a fat-burner. It will only be affective when combined with diet and exercise. But you already knew that.

Most suggest supplementing with one pill of 100grams daily. To all you supplement haters out there, you would have to eat 2 pounds of broccoli everyday to get that amount. Not fun.

No serious side effects are associated with DIM supplements. But one commonly reported side affect is gas and bloating -- common symptoms from eating cruciferous vegetables in their raw form. Also, taking DIM with some medications could reduce one of the other's effectiveness. Be sure to talk to your doctor first.

Other essential nutrients that may help metabolize estrogen are the B vitamins, zinc, omega-3 fish oils, green tea, magnesium, selenium, and melatonin.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
