Though I will go back to fasting on the first day of my period, which always felt natural as well as easy to remember. It causes a release of both adrenaline and noradrenaline leading to a "fight-or-flight" response which lowers the level of hormone DHEA since they are both produced in the adrenals and have an inverse relationship. A three-time author, keynote speaker, nutrition and functional medicine expert and social media influencer, she has spent more than two decades inspiring women to use lifestyle tools to reset their health successfully. From teens to doctors, especially females because learning how your body/ hormones work on the monthly cycle gives you incredible insight on how to nurture your body and thrive in this toxic environment (also guys can understand the women in their life better too). Fast Like a Girl" by Mindy Pelz is an inspiring memoir about the challenges and triumphs of being a female endurance athlete.

It’s been a popular mantra for years – if we eat fewer calories than we burn working out, we’ll lose weight and be healthier.Both Apple and Google state that they ensure that only users who have actually downloaded the app can submit a review. It was enough to convince me that Gin Stephen’s book is a far far better option if you want to learn about (science based) fasting. Famine (>8 hours without food) switches our energy into ketogenic, fat-burning cycle which gives us clarity of mind, calm and energy that were important to hunt the next meal. The book offers a thorough and enlightening examination of fasting, encompassing a range of topics including its effects on hormonal well-being, athletic prowess, and weight control. This book also includes more than 50 recipes based on the two food plans―ketobiotic and hormone feasting―she created to best support women’s hormones.

If you truly want to heal your body and start feeling better, get this book and implement its teachings. So the first section I make, I might be the most proud, because the editor that I worked with on this book, her name is Kathy Hawk, and I am so grateful to her, because she was an editor slash writing coach, and really pushed me hard on that first section to nail that first section, which is the science of fasting. Mindy Pelz's new 60-day fasting journal is designed to make sure that you feel supported, encouraged, and inspired as you work your way through your fasting journey. The writing style employed in the text is characterized by its clarity, conciseness, and ease of comprehension, rendering it highly accessible to a broad range of readers.

But what was so interesting on that level was, it was really fun to see how the principles worked for her on a day to day basis. However, women require a specific and gradual approach to fasting to avoid hormonal fluctuations that can be counter-effective to their fasting efforts. So every time I put a book out into the world, there’s a lot of self doubt that comes out you know, there’s I, I put this out there for you. Losing weight (if you are overweight) and eating well is proven to balance hormones because you often have an estrogen imbalance if you are overweight. So when I started to work out this, this formula for myself and teach it to the world, I saw very clearly that women needed to fast differently and there was a very specific way.

She makes it sound like a blessing to be a woman, and then goes on to elaborate on the many ways fasting is complicated by a woman's cycle, and how women have to have an intricate schedule of eating each month based on where they are in their cycle. Today we override our genetic disposition by eating all day long which leads to health complications like diabetes and obesity. Even though this book goes in great detail about monthly cycles, it is packed with information that pertains to post menopausal women as well. She is a recognized leader in the alternative health field and a pioneer in the fasting movement, teaching the principles of a fasting lifestyle, diet variation, detox, hormones, and more. I read this book through in a day and can’t wait to try her principles to help me with my fasting weight loss and perimenopause.I love listening to your podcasts while at the gym and then share what I learn or the pocast with my two daughters. My journey was to use fasting for health and weight and to understand my Perimenopause issues and Dr Mindy's advice has healed me, reversing those night sweats, broken sleep and mood swings etc. It did get a little repetitive sometimes and I wasn’t interested in parts that didn’t apply to me ie: ”fasting while pregnant”, “fasting during menopause”. and I didn’t find the narrator’s/author’s voice annoying - but then I listen to most books at double speed so this changes the listening experience. In this international bestseller, well-known expert on women and fasting Dr Mindy shares proven strategies, specific protocols and tools to help women thrive with their fasting lifestyles.
