Women, Food, and Hormones with Dr. Sara Gottfried


Ever wonder why men drop dozens of pounds on the ketogenic diet while women stagnate or worse – gain weight? In this episode, we uncover how the keto diet for women is dramatically different than the one for men, discussing the role of hormones and signs of hormonal imbalance in the female body. We talk about the Human Growth Hormone (HGH), detoxification pathways, stress, fasting, and what happens after ketosis.
