5 things you should keep in mind when working out and recovering from hypothalamic amenorrhea!
Your hypothalamic amenorrhea story isn't over the minute you get your period back. There's still work to do because now you have to keep your ovulation and period.
Losing bone density is one of the main reasons why a lot of women who have lost their periods, especially the ones who aren’t interested in getting babies, start their recovery.
Today, I want to bring you an awesome chat with Cari Li, truly amazing women's lifestyle coach who has overcome severe overtraining, including adrenal fatigue and loss of period.
I get this a lot: Kersten, I've been eating more and working out less, but I'm still not getting my period!
Is your hair brittle, dry and maybe even falling out? The reason might be that you're not getting enough nutrients with your diet.
When you first stop working out, in order to recover from overtraining, hypothalamic amenorrhea, adrenal fatigue or other stress related conditions, you may first feel extreme hunger.
You likely already know that if you've lost your period, you may have to gain some weight and get your BMI a little bit higher. You may be wondering, how high does it have to be, in order you get my period back?
I get a lot of emails, saying: I want my period back, but I DON'T want to gain weight... But you should still start your recovery ASAP.
Getting back to working out after recovering from hypothalamic amenorrhea hasn't been an easy road for me. In this video, I'm sharing my experience. I hope that it can help you.
Intermittent fasting is a way of eating in which you don't eat for certain amount of time and have only a window of 5-10 hours a day when you can eat. The rest of the time, you fast. Can it help you with hypothalamic amenorrhea?
It breaks my heart to see that women who have decided to take their healths in their own hands and recover from hypothalamic amenorrhea, are second guessing their choice because their friends or family members don't support it.
When you're working on getting your weight up to recover from hypothalamic amenorrhea, you may get worried when you're getting closer to your previous weight but still don't see your period.
You may be frustrated to realize that you need to gain more weight than you expected, to get your period back.
