2x TED speaker and host of the popular Everyday Wellness Podcast Cynthia Thurlow had just finished writing the manuscript for her new book Intermittent Fasting Transformation: The 45-Day Program for Women to Lose Stubborn Weight, Improve Hormonal Health, and Slow Aging.
In a world where more often equals better, Cynthia Thurlow delivered a ton of practical and pragmatic information to help women navigate this often challenging time while maintaining optimal health.
Over the past few months, Cynthia Thurlow has become a great friend and advocate for Data-Driven Fasting, helping spread the word about the insights your pre-meal blood sugars can provide to guide your intermittent fasting routine to align with your routine and unique metabolism!
In this chat, we discuss:
- Why can fasting and/or weight loss be harder for postmenopausal women?
- What are the symptoms that women might experience when they push things too hard for too long?
- What are your thoughts on intermittent fasting vs extended fasting/ADF/OMAD, particularly for women?
- How do blood sugar, insulin and other hormones vary across the monthly cycle?
- Why does weight vary across the monthly cycle?
- How does what you eat affect your energy, food cravings and weight on an intermittent fasting lifestyle?
- What do you typically eat to ensure you maintain lean mass and metabolic health?
- What part of the cycle is the best or worst time to fast?
- How can women avoid sabotaging their health journey due to TOM cravings?
- Should a woman’s food choices vary across the month? How much should they listen to their body vs fight the cravings?
- How can we support thyroid health when fasting?
