Heather is a nutritionist, health coach, and former nurse who loves to coach clients to improved health and wellness.  Her mission is to empower clients to lose weight and feel great in a healthy, sustainable, scientific, life-changing way!


Heather kicks off this episode by explaining how our cycles are actually one of our body’s vital signs and indicates the overall health status of a woman.  So it’s very important to understand the ins and outs of your cycle to optimize it.  

Heather recommends that the best starting point is to track your cycles correctly.  There are apps you can use to track your cycle (linked below). Another key piece is to educate yourself on the four phases of your cycle. 

Kari and Heather wrap the episode by talking more about what optimizing your cycle may look like–what exercises are best during certain phases of your cycle and how to support your body best through nutrition are just a few areas discussed.
