1. Consume soy products on a daily basis, including soymilk, tofu, tempeh, Miso soup, and roasted soy nuts.

3. Eat cruciferous vegetables daily or every other day. These include cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts.

4. Decrease your intake of saturated, hydrogenated, and polyunsaturated fats, and increase your consumption of monounsaturated fat, such as extra-virgin olive oil, almonds, avocados, etc.
