Geeky Magic – Keto Cycling for All Women

This week on Geeky Magic we take a look at Chapter 9 “Keto Cycling for All Women” from my new book The Betty Body. This chapter is all about how cycling the Ketogenic Diet is ideal for women’s physiology. We discuss the science behind this concept, including driving protein synthesis and hypertrophy, as well as honoring our female menstrual cycle. Over the last few weeks, we have taken a dive into each chapter to discuss the struggles, successes, and stories behind the book.

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!
