Kitty spent most of her adult life dieting. She jumped from one quick fix diet to the next. Shakes, fasting, keto and low carb. You name it she’s done it. She was obsessed with food and felt like she was either restricting or binge eating. She felt happiest when she was thin but she had to starve herself and train 6-7 days a week to maintain it. She had irregular and painful periods, suffered miscarriages, rarely slept through the night; she was bloated, constipated and exhausted. That all changed in 2015 when she met her partner Craig and stumbled across the work of Ray Peat and Emma Sgourakis. What she learned transformed her body and health. It's now Kitty’s mission to free women from restrictive diets, help them restore their metabolisms, balance their hormones and build bodies they love.

Today Kitty joins me for an important discussion of optimizing exercise for the female body, menstrual cycle, and hormone cycle! Is it possible to exercise less, eat more, and lose weight at the same time? Tune in to find out!
