Intermittent fasting has gained tremendous popularity over the last decade not only as a weight loss regime but as an effective way for improving blood glucose control, optimising lipid profiles and reducing risk of many chronic conditions. The question at hand is if intermittent fasting affects men and women the same way. Emerging evidence has raised concerns regarding the effects of fasting on reproductive health particularly in females. This webinar aims to dive in to the science on intermittent fasting and gender. In detail, the webinar will explore the current evidence base to understand: What works, for who, why, in what context and when. To set the scene, the webinar will begin by giving an overview of what intermittent fasting is and the what happens to your body on a cellular and biological level when you fast. The main focus of the webinar will be exploring the science on the effects of fasting on a Men vs women level. The latest science relating to the impact on weight, health, hormones and performance for each gender will be discussed extensively. Shortcomings and limitations of the current body of research will also be highlighted. Finally, using a multidirectional and holistic approach the webinar will discuss the practical applications of fasting for both women and men. Overall this webinar is research focused – highlighting many of the latest studies and providing new perspectives in the area to viewer however the practical application of the research is a fundamental part of the webinar making it suitable to those who are new to the area.
