AMA Round 2: Muscle Building, Creatine Supplementation,and Perimenopause with Dr. Mindy Pelz

This week Dr. Mindy Pelz returns to the Better Show with round 2 in a collaborative episode with her show. The Resetter Podcast. We had such a blast the first time around, we had to give our listeners what they wanted..and aren’t we glad we did. If you don’t already know Dr. Mindy Pelz, she is a renowned holistic health investing expert who is on a mission to get a million people fasting this year. She has made countless videos on Youtube about health, and fasting, generating over 15 million lifetime views. We dove straight into our favourite topics, women training on their period, the hormonal advantages and disadvantages women face during certain phases, and why lifting weights at a certain age is very important. The topic of Collagen, and other supplements such as Creatine, and Aminos (BCAA’s) is discussed and how to use them and what to expect. We touch on refeed days and carb intake to get a caloric bump or just a nice pump for those muscles of yours. We finish off our episode with fasting, and how you should listen to your body and find what feels right for you. Thanks for watching!

I’m Dr. Stephanie

Part geek, part magic, and all the way passionate about being a well-lived woman.

I want to throw my grandkids in the air in my 70’s. I want to be squatting even more weight than I am now, and putting my OWN luggage in the overhead bin. Sound like weird goals? For me these are just some of the little things that represent a life well-lived.

My health is MY job – I’ll be damned if I rely on luck, ‘good genes’ or a cocktail of drugs that over promise and under deliver.

The Betty Body is my first book-baby, and a collection of what I’ve learned after thousands of clinical hours, hundreds of conversations with the world’s top experts, and most importantly…

This book is an outline of what took ME from “rock-bottom health” at 38, to being my own version of a Betty in my perimenopausal mid 40’s. A woman who is physically strong, full of energy, enjoys mental clarity, great sex and a joyful family life. Is it all roses? Of course not. But I have the stamina and tools to deal with the push and pull of life so that it doesn’t turn into chronic stress.

I want this for you too. Let’s go Bettys!
