Cycle syncing is the practice of syncing your lifestyle (diet, movement, work) with your menstrual cycle. Just like the phases of the moon, or the four seasons, the menstrual cycle has 4 phases, each with its own unique gifts and energies. If you are new to cycle syncing, this guide is a beginner's dream. I've taken years of research and practice and distilled it into a simple and beautiful how-to guide.
Your menstrual cycle has 4 distinct phases, each requiring different nutrients for optimal hormonal health. In fact, your metabolism and appetite shift drastically depending on which phase of your cycle you are in. For example, did you know that in your luteal and menstrual phases your body needs up to 400 more calories per day than in your follicular and ovulatory phases? This is one reason why so many diet programs fail women. We are cyclical, dynamic beings who are not meant to eat or exercise or work the same every day, and yet we live in a society where we have been shamed into thinking that inconsistency makes us a failure.
Cyclical eating helps heal the hormonal imbalances that cause cramps, PMS, and fatigue. Plus, it completely changes your relationship to food and your body.
In this 18-page guide, you will find:
- The 4 phases of the menstrual cycle
- Foods for each phase
- Grocery shopping lists
- Printable cheat sheet for your fridge
- Tips for getting started with cyclical eating
