Description

Hormones are the major buzz word right now on social media, but do you know what they really are and how they can affect your training (and life)?

We enlisted the help of Kaely McDevitt, MS, RD, LD, a fellow dietitian who specializes in women's health to untangle what exactly hormones are and why they matter to you as an athlete and woman.

In this episode we covered:

  • What hormones are most important for active women
  • How does intense exercise affect stress in the body
  • Does hormonal birth control have any effect on our overall health, especially within an endurance athlete lens?
  • What is allostatic load?
  • Does sleep affect certain hormone pathways?
  • Common micronutrient deficiencies seen in active women
  • Why you shouldn't be drinking a gallon of water a day
  • Is adrenal fatigue real?
  • How long does it take for someone who is undereating and/or overexercising to feel adverse symptoms?
  • How does intense exercise affect those reproductive hormones?
  • Is it possible to use an online blood lab instead of working with someone 1:1?
  • What about blood sugar and hormone health?
