Fasting for women can be vastly different than it is for men; as such, I had the privilege of bringing Cynthia Thurlow onto the channel, who is a nurse practitioner, intermittent fasting and nutrition expert, and a two-time TEDx speaker, to discuss all things related to fasting for women!

Check out Cynthia's book, Intermittent Fasting Transformation: The 45-Day Program for Women to Lose Stubborn Weight, Improve Hormonal Health, and Slow Aging, HERE:
