267: Intermittent Fasting After 40 - Helpful for Perimenopause & Menopause?

On Air with Ella - podcast episode 267

Laurie Lewis Intermittent Fasting


For Laurie Lewis, menopause dealt a crushing blow -- brain fog, a lack of balance, memory loss, and the sudden gain of 50 pounds of hormonal fat. She tried everything she knew to feel better, and the methods that worked in the past made no difference. She felt like a stranger in her own body.

After four years of struggle, Laurie stumbled upon Intermittent Fasting and started that day. The menopausal fog lifted in less than one week, and she almost immediately experienced more energy and felt more “like herself.” She lost 51 pounds in 15 months and has kept it off since.

Now, at age 59, Laurie has turned her personal success into the premier thriving Intermittent Fasting coaching business. As a certified health coach (Institute for Integrative Nutrition) she combines her knowledge of nutrition with deep research and practice of Time Restricted Eating.

Laurie & Ella discuss:

  • What is intermittent fasting

  • Fasting from "age 44 years to forever"

  • Why a person might benefit from establishing an "Eating Window"

  • How to potentially heal the hormonal devastation of menopause

  • Does intermittent fasting wreck your metabolism? Is it bad for women's hormones

  • Autophagy - the body's "cleaning up mode"

  • Fasting's impact on insulin resistance and appetite control

  • Fasting in different seasons: pre-, peri- and in menopause

  • Can intermittent fasting be MORE intuitive? Can it result in MORE listening to your body?

  • Who should potentially not participate in the conversation about Intermittent Fasting
