[15:45] Diving Into The Menstrual Cycle
– Week 1: When we think about the first week of our cycle, it’s the bleed week.
– Most hormones have gone on vacation during this time. FHS is still around (follicle-stimulating hormone).
– The first two weeks of your cycle are all about developing your follicle – you will be more resilient to restrict carbohydrates. It’s a nice week for fasting because we don’t have progesterone.
– Week 2: After the bleed week and into the second week, it’s the week before ovulation.
– Ovulation is the main event – it’s the whole point of your menstrual cycle.
– In this week, we see estrogen. Estrogen is designed for growth because we want to develop the follicle.
– The other hormone that comes up is testosterone. In this week, your interest in sex should go up.
– Week 3: Week three happens after your ovulation.
– Back off aggressive fasting this week.
– Add resistant starches to your diet during this week. Some examples of resistant starches: green bananas, green plantains, raw potatoes, cold rice,
– Week 4: Peak week!
– Relax on keto this week and pump up the calories.
– Get out of ketosis – eat squash, sweet potato, and fruit.
