About this deal

So when I started to work out this, this formula for myself and teach it to the world, I saw very clearly that women needed to fast differently and there was a very specific way. But what was so interesting on that level was, it was really fun to see how the principles worked for her on a day to day basis. If your gut were a garden, fasting would be the tool you would use to till the soil and pull the weeds so that the ground would become fertile enough to grow beautiful flowers. This book also includes more than 50 recipes based on the two food plans―ketobiotic and hormone feasting―she created to best support women’s hormones. C is a bestselling author, keynote speaker, nutrition and functional health expert who has spent over two decades helping thousands of people successfully reclaim their health.

Mindy wrote this book because, "once a woman knows how to build a fasting lifestyle around her cycle, she becomes unstoppable. I am still guiding women to focus on foods, flavours and cooking techniques that best suit them based on their bespoke treatment plan, but now I am doing that with more nuance. Also be wary of chiropractors trying to sell you diets or anyone saying they can “balance your hormones”.This first edition hardcover textbook by author Mindy Pelz is perfect for adults who want to improve their mind, body, and spirit through nutrition and fasting.

Fast Like a Girl (2022) empowers women to craft a fasting lifestyle based on their own personal hormone cycle. When our bodies aren’t in a fasted state, we’re in sugar-burning mode – our bodies “burn” the glucose we eat to energize us. This includes people who have gone through menopause, or those who might not get their period due to stress or birth control.

I would love something that goes along with the book and MY cycle that tells you foods to eat for certain times of the month or which exercise would good or not good. Like I said she wrote the foreword, and is we have an incredible podcast we did together so it was such a joy to be on that journey with her. The author did a quick summary of fasting and keto, and then explained why women should align their fasting to their cycle. So there’s a whole third section with application of the formula for wherever you’re hormonal, whatever your hormonal situation is. My journey was to use fasting for health and weight and to understand my Perimenopause issues and Dr Mindy's advice has healed me, reversing those night sweats, broken sleep and mood swings etc.

And around, you know, that time we also were getting a lot of press coming from different health influencers, preaching that women shouldn’t fast at all. What makes this book so unique is that women now have a fasting manual that will help customize food and fasting to match the needs of their hormones.I read this book through in a day and can’t wait to try her principles to help me with my fasting weight loss and perimenopause. Though I will go back to fasting on the first day of my period, which always felt natural as well as easy to remember. And so one day, I was not only wondering where my what was going on with my cycle, but I started to get a lot of anxiety. Bibliomysteries are mystery stories which deal in some significant way with books and the world associated with books.

I've been looking into intermittent fasting to help with my PCOS and I've been fasting on and off for years. I love the food recommendation for helping the healing process, from ketobiotic days, hormone feasting days and gut reset days etc. We’ll finish with a 30-day reset designed to help you begin fasting and provide a few tips and tricks for breaking a fast in a way that supports your goals.This is a powerful book and a must for ever female looking for health, healing or to just better understand her hormones. I believe we live in this world where it’s easy to put on a highlight reel and just show all the good things in your life.
