S3 Ep. 28 | To Fast or Not to Fast; Nutritional Principles of Fasting & How to Eat with Your Cycle

Jamie & Teresa wanted to squeeze in one more nutrition with the menstrual cycle episode this season! This episode will focus on the principles of fasting and incorporating this as a tool to help our bodies and our hormones. The inspiration behind this episode came from Jamie reading the book by Dr. Mindy Pelz called 'Fast Like a Girl', and how it inspired Jamie to really think about how fasting could potentially be a helpful tool for some women to implement. We realize that anytime we bring up nutrition and ways to eat, it can be triggering to many so we want to be sure you know that our goal is to just inform, and we do not want to push any sort of dietary intervention on any woman who feels that it could be harmful to them in anyway. This is why we want you to learn for yourself, talk to your doctor, and healthcare providers about your unique situation and make sure you feel called to any nutritional approach you take for your body. What Jamie & Teresa love is learning ourselves, and we love sharing what we have learned with you our listeners. So consider this a fun interview about what we learned from Dr. Pelz and our own knowledge about the cycle and how we can optimize our nutrition to help our hormones, help our menstrual cycles and performance on so many levels of life. We hope you enjoy this episode and share with your friends!
