In This Episode:

  • Dodge the dangers of going “too low” on carbohydrates which can derail your keto diet 
  • Why premenopausal women, in particular, should avoid alcohol and THESE 3 foods to fend off the biggest triggers for inflammation.
  • This long-bastardized component in foods — alongside animal protein — offers the secret key to women’s nutritional needs.
  • Have more fun in fasting — unless you are part of the toughest group that struggles the most to adapt
  • How to figure out if you are one of the types of women who are the WORST candidates for fasting (and other pre-fasting insights) 
  • Train your body to balance your hormones and kick your carb addiction to the curb so you can adapt to intermittent fasting sooner! 

Aging comes with a lot of pains, and, for women, hormonal imbalance tops their list of physical and emotional discomfort. Cynthia Thurlow is a nurse practitioner, fasting and nutrition expert, and a two-time TEDx speaker. She is joining this episode to talk about her advocacy of helping women age gracefully without the pains of weight gain and hormonal issues.

She talks about the importance of carb cycling and taking a proactive step to managing hormonal imbalance, allowing the body’s hormones to work harmoniously together. She believes that fasting and nutrition are key elements for better physical, mental, and emotional health.

“We can create a very personalized food elimination diet. We can reap the benefits of famine and fasting if we do it the right way.”

– Cynthia Thurlow
