Learn how the female physiological system affects your diet and exercise

Understanding how female physiology affects dieting and exercise help you stick to your fat loss habits

Instructions

  1. Avoid dieting during the one-two weeks at the end of your menstrual cycle
    For most women, during the two weeks at the end of the menstrual cycle, they require slightly more calories to function most efficiently.
  2. If you do not have periods, make sure you find out why
    Missing your periods may be a sign that you are pregnant, eating too little or exercising too much. Consult a doctor if you have an irregular menstrual cycle. 
  3. If you have PCOS or if you are menopausal, pregnant or breastfeeding, consider these conditions while dieting and exercising
    Your age, health and if you're pregnant or breastfeeding affect the needs you have for your diet and exercise routine. Don’t overexert yourself!
