      Hi everyone! Just wanted to share a huge game changer for me on my weight loss journey. A few months ago I watched James Smith’s video on the affect periods and the menstrual cycle have one weight loss and it completely changed my view on things.

      I’ve been yo-yo dieting since I was in high school (I’m 24 now) and could never find a way to sustainably lose weight. I think a huge part of this is that NO ONE tells you that your menstrual cycle can have a HUGE impact on your weight loss and your approach.

      I’ve dropped the link below – James explains this way better than I can! If anyone is struggling and in a vicious cycle of dieting hard for a few weeks and then giving up, I definitely recommend watching it.


      P.S. it’s also WILD to me that I finally received this information from a MAN…I’ve shared it with almost every woman in my life because it was so eye-opening, and all of them had the same reaction of “holy shit I had no idea about this” which is so FRUSTRATING.

          Periods can affect weight loss in several ways. Here are some examples:

          1. Water retention: Many women experience water retention during their menstrual cycle, which can lead to temporary weight gain. This is due to hormonal changes that can cause the body to retain fluids.

          2. Increased appetite: Some women experience increased appetite and food cravings during their period, which can lead to overeating and difficulty with weight loss.

          3. Hormonal changes: Hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle can also affect metabolism and energy levels, making it harder to lose weight.

          4. Mood changes: Mood changes, such as depression or anxiety, can also affect weight loss efforts by causing changes in eating habits or motivation to exercise.

          While periods can make weight loss more challenging, it is still possible to lose weight during this time. Here are some tips:

          1. Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help reduce water retention and bloating.

          2. Stick to a healthy diet: Eating a balanced diet and avoiding sugary and processed foods can help manage cravings and support weight loss.

          3. Exercise regularly: Regular exercise can help improve mood, boost metabolism, and support weight loss efforts.

          4. Get enough sleep: Getting enough sleep can help regulate hormones and support healthy metabolism.

          It’s important to remember that weight loss is a gradual process that requires consistency and patience. If you are struggling with weight loss during your period, consider speaking with a healthcare provider or registered dietitian for personalized guidance. I definitely recommend Visiting it. Heal360
