Fasting Q&A: Coffee and Tea, Menstrual Cycle, TRE, and Resistance Training (REPEAT)

In this Fasting Q&A episode, Megan and Nadia answer your fasting questions:

1. You say not to nurse coffee that contains cream. Is it OK to nurse a cup of black coffee or hot tea (without caffeine in it) during your fast? [02:20]

2. During the week before menstruation should I not fast at all? I would love a guide that gives a general idea of what types of fasting are recommended related to where a woman is in her cycle, keeping hormones in mind? [10:47]

3. I decided to do time-restricted eating for life and it's working for me, but I don't understand why it's working for me? [20:03]

4. Is resistance training in a fasted state, specifically longer fasts of 72 hours, a waste of time when there’s no intake of protein before and after sessions to trigger muscle protein synthesis? [27:55]
