    Question: i am 37 and going through the worst of premenopause, i started to take vitex, chaste berry, a herb that helps with hormonal balance. It eliminated all premenopausal symptoms, however, ive gain 17 lbs in last 4 months, eating the same as before. Before, i hadn't gained a lb in 2 years. I have struggled with weight all my life, and this supplement is correcting one issue, but causing another. It also increases appetite. What would you advise a woman who will probably experience the worst menopause has to offer, which occurs 5-10 yrs after premenopause?

    ur videos are ok but not everyone understand everything what u say be short please because its becoming boring

  5. I don’t see the link. Already a member of Thrive and would like to see your list.

  6. I knew it! During the front end of my cycle, dropping pounds is so difficult (But I still feel strong during work outs). During the back half I can drop lbs so much more easily. I kept telling this to people and they thought it was “all in my head”. It caused so much frustration for me. It’s nice to finally know there is a difference based on hormones and there are solutions to maximizing your health routine taking your hormones into consideration. YESSSSSSSS!

    Thomas, thanks for giving women so much information about how our bodies are different and how to cater to that. It's so helpful when there is so much information out there catered to men in the fitness world.

    Great video, Thomas, lots of good and useful info – NOW can you do a similar video for post-menopausal women – I'm guessing there will be some pertinent differences for us older women. Thank you for all your (plural) wonderful work.
    Haha – just started reading the other comments and the word 'menopause' was all over the place 😀

  10. Could you please make a video on how woman should eat depending were there are on their cycle? & we need more woman series like this😩

    But how do I build muscle for women :p

  14. Thomas , I’m 56 so should I act as though I’m on my cycle and take all the info you gave the same or would there be recommendations for women slightly be altered due to post menopause / menopause ? Thank you for this video , it’s still very enlightening and I just started lifting weights a few weeks ago and use resistance bands too .

    Loving the female specific content!!! Thank you ☺️

    First time ever that I personably heard a health/fitness expert mention the hormone specifics relating to women’s training!!!! Seriously almost all studies involve men. Women and men are similar in many ways but hugely different in some, the biggest being our periods. Hello!!! The monthly hormonal changes effect our bodies completely differnt than men so why on earth is no one talking about this?! Until now. Please Thomas, do more research and looking into these differences that apply to us women and give practical applications for us! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

    I don’t produce estrogen anymore nor do I have a cycle. So you’re talking to women who are a lot younger.

  18. What effect does creatine monohydrate cycling – 3 days on 3 days off have on women who are IF and weight training please??

  19. Thank you for talking about the impact the female menstrual cycle has on training! Most women don't know about this and get very discouraged when they aren't performing as well during their luteal phase as they were during their follicular phase!

  20. Great, now what can we find out about post-menopausal women?
