Intermittent Fasting

Can fasting mess with a woman’s hormones?

When you fasting, you feel serene, calm, your stress goes down, your tolerance just goes up. What they're confusing is the counter regulatory cortisol effect when blood sugars go down because you're not eating. But that's not going to be a big issue, because as soon as your body starts adapting within two to three days and you start getting a ketosis, you're not eating sugar. So your body runs on fat fuel. So now you don't have this situation where you're just running on blood sugars and it goes down and then all of a sudden you can't tap in the fat and then you have this issue. The solution is to adapt to the ketogenic diet and your cortisol will be fine.
