Here are a few tips related to fasting and a woman’s cycle:

Track your cycle: Start by tracking your menstrual cycle to become aware of the different phases. Apps or calendars can help you monitor your cycle and predict when you’re likely to experience different stages, such as menstruation, follicular phase, ovulation, and luteal phase.

Adjust fasting intensity during menstruation: Many women experience increased fatigue, bloating, and discomfort during menstruation. It may be beneficial to adjust the intensity of your fasting during this time by incorporating more flexible fasting methods, such as time-restricted eating with a wider eating window.

Experiment during the follicular phase: The follicular phase, which begins after menstruation and ends at ovulation, is generally considered a favorable time to experiment with more intense fasting methods. During this phase, hormone levels are lower, and energy levels tend to be higher, which can make fasting more manageable.

Be mindful during the luteal phase: The luteal phase, which occurs after ovulation and before menstruation, is characterized by hormonal fluctuations and potential premenstrual symptoms. It’s important to listen to your body during this phase and be mindful of any changes in hunger or cravings. Adjust your fasting approach if needed, focusing on balanced nutrition and self-care.

Prioritize nutrient-dense foods: Regardless of the phase of your cycle, it’s crucial to prioritize nutrient-dense foods to support your overall health and well-being. Ensure you’re getting adequate protein, healthy fats, and a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains during your eating window.

Listen to your body: Every woman’s experience with fasting and their menstrual cycle is unique. It’s essential to listen to your body and make adjustments based on how you feel. Pay attention to hunger cues, energy levels, and any signs of discomfort.

Remember, it’s always recommended to consult with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian for personalized advice and guidance, especially if you have specific health concerns or conditions.

hey there!

This isn't your typical blog

I might be super messy action at times, basically like throwing spaghetti at the wall to see if it sticks. But I also happen to be your classic overthinker with a touch of perfectionist too. Makes for an interesting combo in my world.
Here I like to share whatever is helping me scale this business I love- marketing, social media, health, parenting, my love for Jesus, and a glimpse behind the curtain of my life.
