Episode Intro

Men and women are created uniquely and, as such, we require different ways of caring for our health. In this episode, Cynthia Thurlow explains why fasting is done differently in men compared to women. Cynthia is an established thought leader in the intermittent fasting world with a special focus on creating unique programs for women’s particular hormonal needs. Find out how fasting can be used to achieve and maintain great health.

“The beauty of being women is that our physiology guides us, but it also means we need to take extra steps to have fasting success.”

  1. I’m 72 and have put on 15 lbs during the 2 covid years. Is fasting safe for me to lose the senior spread? I’m not a vegetarian. Love all food. Not much of a carb eater. How do I go about doing it? I’m also suffering from major hot flashes.
