The Keto diet is one of the popular diets people are following lately. As most of us know, diet and lifestyle can effect our hormones. Eating a ketogentic diet can have a dramatic effect on our hormones, this can be either a good or a bad effect depending on the timing of your menstrual cycle.
According to author Tasha Metcalf, the goal is not to reach an ideal body composition at all costs but to lose excess body fat safely, without sacrificing hormonal health. A better body and happy hormones—you can have both!
