You are not a man [...] You can't be on the same program as a man because of your hormones, and because of your muscle structure
In this episode, Karen talks with Debra Riedesel, Registered Dietician and founder of the Cycle Diet, about nutrition therapy for women. Topics include: PMS, PMDD, Menopause, HRT and what's in that darn dairy.
Debra created the Cycle Diet to help women who suffer from PMS and PMDD understand that through elimination and building a balanced diet, they can stop the needless monthly suffering. She also warns women athletes that they need a nutrition plan that is designed for them, and not for men.
With over 20 years of experience as a Registered Dietician, Debra's knowledge and experience is a must listen for women of all ages, athlete or not.
