Should You Start Fasting? Here’s How (as a Woman)

Bio-individuality is a beautiful thing! Teaching you how to setup your fasting protocol to work for your body. We’re chatting about whether fasting for more than 7 days is safe, how to choose a fasting day that works best for you, whether fasting should be done while pregnant, and a bunch more!

I’ve had so much success on the ketogenic diet as I use high-fat to heal my body and my relationship to food. At first, I didn’t really use fasting as I found it affected my hormones negatively. After a bunch of research, I’ve started adding fasting back into my ketogenic diet.
