Episode summary

Giulietta Durante explores why she feels it’s so empowering to embrace every phase of the menstrual cycle, with all the challenges and opportunities each brings. She addresses the misconception that we should aim to feel the same every day, arguing that we should build fluidity into our diet and lifestyles, rather than just try to be totally consistent. This episode answers: How can we adapt what we eat to support our bodies throughout the cycle? What does it mean to be a cyclical being living in a linear world? How can we embrace our periods?
