Intermittent Fasting: Win or Bust?

"It might be best to listen to the needs of your body first"

Intermittent fasting or IF works by restricting the number of hours you can eat in 24 hours. Most IF skips breakfast, the most important meal of the day.

For women with a cycle, especially those who are dealing with hormonal imbalance, IF might not always work. This method is not necessarily a diet but a lifestyle and if you are going to do it just because you want to lose weight, you may want to find other alternatives.

Fasting can increase cortisol levels in the body and during your cycle’s Luteal Phase, it can lead to progesterone deficiencies and other hormonal imbalances which is not healthy at all.

It might be best to listen to the needs of your body first. Don’t neglect self-care, eat healthy, exercise, and find supplements that can help you in the process. It would also help to reduce your non-eating window when fasting so your body would still have the energy it needs for the day
