[02:55] About The Fasting Circle
Women love the idea of fasting – there are so many miracles that can happen when you fast. However, we need to honor our hormones, specifically our sex hormones. Men’s testosterone will come every couple of hours. Women get testosterone once a month. So, we have to fast very differently. The Fasting Circle will help women navigate the fasting experience. Fasting is powerful; we have to do it thoughtfully. [06:30] The Dangers Of Fasting Too Much
The first danger is progesterone. You make the most progesterone around day twenty of your cycle. If you are in a low-glycemic state, then it won’t make progesterone very proficient. Fasts will cause cortisol – it’s fine during the front half of the cycle. When you need to make progesterone, you don’t want that stress. So, step out of fasting around day twenty of your cycle. During this time, you should slow life down and relax. You want to honor that your body is trying to make progesterone. Make yourself insulin resistant from day one to day ten of your period. You want to go keto and make yourself insulin resistant during this time. Use keto and fasting during this time (totally opposite of day twenty). [11:50] Fasting For Post-Menopausal Women
