Women And If
I am surprised to not see this topic covered in this section!
I am relatively new to BP and have been doing several days per week of IF. I have done juice fasts before and really don't have a problem with not eating all day. With my BP coffee in the morning I stay energized all day with no crashes, etc.
The only problem I've had is positional dizziness. When I am squatting down to do something and get up I get very lightheaded and have to grab something to steady myself. Also less frequently when I go from a stiing position to standing I get the same result. I am a nurse and I am pretty in tune with my body. Once I stand there for a moment it goes away and life goes on. I do not have a blood sugar monitor to see if this is the issue but I suspect not since it goes away as fast as it comes on. I have never had BP (blood pressure not bulletproof issues.
I wonder if anyone else has had this symptom doing IF?
I've heard women should not IF for hormonal reasons and found this article discussing it further:
And can anyone speak to why women should NOT do IF?
Thanks in advance!
