Women cycle every month and this affects how they should exercise and eat. Women have times in the month where their energy and hormones are high, and others where they need to treat themselves more gently.
Working out and eating WITH your cycle helps to keep your metabolic rate stable and makes your workouts more effective for fat burning and strength building.
In this video, Dr. Danielle Litoff, DPT and Functional Medicine Health Coach walks you through the typical 28-day cycle and explains what you should be eating, when you should push yourself, and when you should incorporate rest and recovery.
She will cover how exercise and your food can help you achieve the metabolism you want. What happens on the first week of your cycle is very different then what happens on the third week of your cycle, and you need to understand those differences so you can give your body what it needs every week to gain that metabolic flexibility. This will help you gain energy, build muscle, make your skin glow, and help you sleep really well.
