A science-based, humor laced approach to health and fitness. With the help of top researchers from the health and wellness fields, Juna Gjata and Dr. Eddie Phillips break down the science behind good nutrition, exercise, stress, sleep, and more. Includes a generous helping of sarcasm (Juna), dad jokes (Eddie), and pristine sound design (our awesome producers).
It’s no secret that periods are something almost no one wants to talk about, but menstruation serves one of the most important functions of the human body. In this episode, we speak to Professor Katherine Black from the University of Otago in New Zealand. What is happening in your body during your cycle? Why do we get hungrier, experience mood swings, get depressed, or experience pain leading up to our period? Is there any science behind changing your exercise and nutrition to be in sync with your cycle? And, what does losing your period mean for your health?
