Hi, I’m new to this forum, this is my first post. I’ve gotten a lot out of just reading and lurking, so thank you.
I’ve been really interested in the topic of fasting lately, then I came across some people saying that women should either not do it, or take a different approach to it because of hormonal effects.
I searched the topic on YouTube and found a video by a Dr. Beth Westie (never heard of her before). She doesn’t seem to be a low carb advocate. Anyway, I just wanted to see whether I’m alone in thinking she’s way off the mark. She advocates women “fasting” but eating a snack every 4 hours, and also drinking something with sugar in it, I guess throughout the “fast.” (???)

I’m wondering if anyone has any good resources to look further into the question of women and fasting. Forgive me if that’s been asked a million times. I tried searching this forum and found some discussions, but I haven’t found too many “experts” going in depth into it.
