In this episode we discuss:
How women’s infradian rhythm (and, consequently, menstrual cycle) impact exercise and nutrition;
How the fitness and nutrition industry are centered on male studies and the 24-hour circadian clock;
Specific examples for how women can sync their movement and exercise routines with their menstrual cycle to improve health and vitality;
How Claudia’s experience with the eating disorder orthorexia and using fitness as a cathartic and emotional regulation outlet shaped her personal and professional approach to movement.
