How To Lose Weight During Your Menstrual Cycle

Ladies, we all want to lose a little weight, but it can get complicated because of our menstrual cycle. There are many ups and downs, days of bloating, days the body doesn't want to move, etc.

What if there were a way to learn exactly when your body burns the most fat?

Wouldn't you pay a high price for that precious nugget?

Muscle & Fitness Magazine did an article on the female fat cycle. And according to researchers from Australia, all women are equal and alike during certain times of their menstrual cycle. For instance, one study found that,"the female body burns much more fat, especially during high-intensity aerobic exercise, during the luteal phase of your menstrual cycle than it does during the follicular phase."

In other words, you will lose more weight during days 14-28 of your period than during days 1-13 of your period. It has to do with the estrogen and progesterone levels during a woman's cycle.

Now to take advantage of your own fat burning machine, do lower-intensity exercise when you get your period. Use about 60%-70% of your maximum heart rate for about 40-60 minutes per session for days 1-13. Do cardio on the treadmill or elliptical climber.

Around day 14, switch over to high-intensity exercise, where you use 80%-90% maximum heart rate for about 30 minutes per session. Do that tougher exercise regimen for days 14-28. Push your cardio on the stationary bike or stair-stepper.

This plan will help you really strip the fat and lose weight.

Hi...so glad you have asked a question. I only wish I had seen your question sooner.

Day 1 always means the first day of your period. And most periods can last up to 7 days, for instance, or less. The days AFTER your period, are still part of your monthly cycle. I should have emphasized monthly 'cycle' rather than calling the whole cycle a 'period.'

And ovulation usually occurs around day 14 of a 28-day menstrual cycle.

So the article is basically looking at the female monthly cycle, and how weight is affected during your period and after during ovulation, etc.

Hope that helps. Please respond if u can.

Thank you for this post. Fitness experts agree that for any diet to work, strict discipline is required especially when it comes to meal planning. Some diets would provide one or two days per week as cheat days and it is during these days that dieters often lose control and go crazy on what they eat.
