Women’s bodies are different from men’s in many ways: including in physical composition, hormonal makeup, and how they metabolize fat and calories. Here, Ketogasm website and blog creator, Tasha Metcalf, breaks down the essential differences between male and female keto dieters to create an actionable plan for adapting the keto diet to your own body and needs, whether you are looking to lose weight, reverse insulin resistance and PCOS, enhance athletic performance, improve thyroid health, or balance your hormonal cycle.
The first part of this book introduces the keto diet and fat-burning metabolism, while busting common keto myths and addressing diet dogma. This sets the stage for you to confidently approach your diet, avoid the pitfalls, and put the naysayers to rest.
Next, learn exactly how female bodies respond to both diet and exercise. Find out how the keto diet and calories coexist, how the menstrual cycle and menopause affect metabolism and eating behavior, and how the keto diet can be used to bring harmony to your hormones.
