The Power of Intermittent Fasting For Women with Cynthia Thurlow
In this episode, Sinclair speaks with Cynthia Thurlow, a nurse practitioner and a two-time TEDx, and multi-time bestselling author.
Here is where you’ll learn how to navigate eating habits, elements of metabolic flexibility, and weight loss resistance.
No matter where you are with your relationship to food Cynthia will guide how to take steps forward in a matter that feels manageable.
Sinclair and Cynthia step into myth-busting mode and set the record straight on many of the current health trends.
- When you eat meals and snacks less than 3 hours apart you are neglecting your body time to recover and digest.
- None of us should be snacking. Why you should stop snacking and start eating more protein.
- Living in a continued state of the sympathetic nervous system has a large impact on your digestion.
- Sex hormones play a discrete, yet powerful, role in the gut and overall gut health.
- Intermittent fasting for women requires more consideration and a heightened sense of awareness, especially premenopausal.
- You cannot eat intuitively if your hormones are not properly regulated.
- Thrive on flexibility, not rigidity when it comes to eating healthy.
- Mold exposure may be the factor for significant inflammation in your body.
“Through adversity comes opportunity. All of us have a backstory, all of us have a pain to purpose story, but it's reframe it to say, okay, this is part of my story, but it's not who I am.”
“We (women) have to fast differently, it's as simple as that. We have to fast differently. If we're an athlete, we have to fast a little differently, if we're in menopause we have to fast differently.”
“We're not grazing animals. We're not herbivores. Our digestive systems are sophisticated enough that we're designed to eat a meal, probably every four to five hours during a specific amount of time.”
“The farther we get away from nature and our circadian biology and eating a more nutrient dense diet. The more likely we are to be exposed to things that are going to dysregulate our bodies in such a way that we're not going to be metabolically flexible.”
