Welcome To Energize Your Cycle!
I’ve created this website after a long struggle with my energy. I saw doctor after doctor asking what was wrong with me. My brain couldn’t focus, and I was tired all of the time. The doctors I saw never found anything. I was healthy! Luckily for me, I didn’t take that as a fact. I knew that I shouldn’t be falling asleep right after dinner or waking up exhausted after 8 hours of sleep.
I want to help others with everything I’ve learned. The biggest AHA moment I had during my journey was when I realized that menstruating women change every week. Our hormones fluctuate on a monthly cycle, and our bodies react differently during each phase. This is why one week, we might feel so much energy to get things done, and two weeks later, we want to lay on the couch and watch Netflix. It’s not in your head, and it’s real! And these hormonal shifts change the way that we react to diet, exercise, and stress.
Typical advice that you find about eating keto or practicing fasting doesn’t put our hormonal shifts into account. Our bodies will do great on keto during menstruation, but we will optimize our health and energy by eating healthy carbs in the luteal phase. When we consider what our hormones are doing during each phase, we can energize our cycle and feel great all month long!
The Four Phases
I’ve summarized the differences between the four menstrual cycle phases. You can see which exercises will benefit your most, what foods to add (or avoid) during specific weeks, and how to plan your tasks so you can be most efficient.
Welcome! I hope I can help you gain energy and use your menstrual cycle as an advantage. Please contact me with any questions, comments, or suggestions!
