A woman’s hormonal landscape changes dramatically throughout her life. Because of this unique biology, understanding her menstrual cycle and its rhythm can be incredibly useful for optimizing productivity, weight, sex drive, energy, and mood.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk to Dr. Stephanie Estima about how to eat according to your menstrual cycle, and why women are not meant to calorie restrict over the long term or be in ketosis over the long term. We discuss when women’s bodies best tolerate fasting and the different types of fasts across a women’s cycle. We also talk about how to change your exercise routine based on your menstrual cycle and the importance of taking the time to recover and slow down.
