If you are a woman interested to lose a few kilos or you are an athlete that competes in bodybuilding or you are a coach that would like to know more on how would be the best way to train and give nutritional advice to women, this is the book for you!
After reading it I have actually realised how women are so much more complex than man. Sara — October 12, Did I read the same book? I made it though my entire Kindle purchase and did not get any nutritional advice or anything more than vague advice to lift a little while dieting. Pure information. Raw data. Physiological and hormonal chain and step reactions. This book in contrast was old dusty intel, so flipping repetitive I wanted to punch Lyle. Repeatedly see what I did there?
Til for tat, for the torture I endured. This book discussed 1. How women are not like men — over and over and over with math examples to support it.
We knew that well before you did. Nothing on what to do differently. How pissed off and put out Lyle is at how much time it took him to research this because women are complicated. So many times. Haha welcome to planet earth, Lyle. Meet women. Pcos again. Get on hormone replacement therapy. In conclusion, 1. And give approval that what we have always known, exists. No new information, no new answers, no revelations, and a lot of pussyfooting about when he seemed to get close to making a suggestion — like he was afraid the Vegos would come after him if he promoted animal protein, so he danced around it after, leaving the reader wondering at the recommended path… But on almost everything.
The book was meant to cover nutrition primarily. Nothing but trivia? I laid out how to optimize every aspect of nutrition, diet and supplements for every goal under the sun.
I covered birth control, PCOS and menopause in terms of the changes that occur. Or you skimmed every other word. You represent a paragon of humanity. WTF are you talking about? And your last sentence. I could be wrong. In fact, based on your asinine comments, I wonder if you perhaps purchased some of the segmented sections I had on Amazon. Even under these circumstances Even under these circumstances, in almost any physiological system that has been examined, a difference is usually found. Sometimes it is a subtle differences but, in many cases, the difference can be extreme.

While LPL was long-considered the singularly important enzyme for fat storage, there is a second, far more important enzyme responsible for fat storage in fat cells called acylation stimulating protein ASP. These provide a quick source of energy during certain types of exercise and women's higher levels of estrogen cause them to store more IMTG than men Estrogen also increases the level of fat- burning enzymes in skeletal muscle along with activating a compound called AMPk which enhances the use of fat for fuel.
Although many of estrogen's effects clearly limit fat gain in women, there is no doubt that many aspects of its metabolism clearly function to increase lower body fat.
This fat exists primarily to provide energy during pregnancy and breastfeeding and given the large calorie requirements of both, it makes. The normally easy to store and difficult to mobilize hip and thigh fat becomes the easiest to mobilize as it is being used to provide energy for pregnancy and breastfeeding. Despite it's potentially negative effect on body fat, and especially lower body fat, estrogen also has a number of significant positive effects helping to regulate appetite, body weight and body fat levels Demonstrating this is the fact that postmenopausal women who do not go on Hormone Replacement Therapy HRT gain significant amounts of weight and body fat with a shift in distribution and this is.
First, there is an enzyme in fat cells called lipoprotein lipase LPL which breaks fatty acids off. I haven't talked about how fat stores or mobilizes fat yet but estrogen does increase the levels. These receptors are found. The presence or. While progesterone discussed next affects ASP, estrogen does not. Demonstrating this is an oddity of female.
And at least some of this is mediated by the. Among its many other effects, leptin acts to improve the brain's response to other hormones that help to regulate appetite and body weight. Simply, when leptin is low as occurs during dieting , these signals don't work as well and this is part of the overall adaptation to dieting that I will discuss in detail in Chapter 9.
Not only does estrogen increase leptin production from fat cells, it also increases leptin sensitivity in. The end result of this is that estrogen helps to control hunger,. As well, falling levels of estrogen after ovulation contribute to the increase in hunger and cravings that are seen during the luteal phase At least one way that estrogen does this is through it's effects on the brain chemicals effectively hormones in the brain serotonin and dopamine.
Serotonin is involved in overall mood and appetite especially carbohydrate cravings and low. Estrogen has many other positive effects on metabolism. One is that it increases insulin sensitivity. This means that, when estrogen is the dominant hormone, the body will burn more carbohydrates for fuel. Finally, the surge in estrogen during the second half of the follicular phase causes a woman's body to retain more sodium; on a high-salt diet this will cause her body to retain water.
While training will be discussed in detail in Volume 2, let me briegly address estrogen's overall positive effects here. Estrogen prevents inflammation, limits free radical damage, may limit muscle damage itself reducing soreness and acts to help remodel and rebuild skeletal muscle At the same time, estrogen may negatively impact on tendon strength and this has enormous implications for the risk of knee injury in women that I will discuss in Volume 2 While estrogen is most commonly blamed for all aspects of woman's body fat and especially lower body fat problems , it's clear that the picture is more complicated than that.
Certainly estrogen has some effects in fat cells, especially in the lower body. At the same time, estrogen also has a number of positive effects on fat metabolism, body weight regulation and appetite control. In the aggregate, estrogen probably has a more overall positive than negative effects in this regard.
I'd add that the impact of estrogen on any aspect of fat gain or fat loss interacts with the diet. Many of estrogen's negative effects are primarily seen when combined with a high dietary fat intake.
Regardless, while estrogen receives much of the blame, the fact is that progesterone causes far more problems. Estrogen also sends it's own leptin-like signal in. Dopamine is part of the reward system and low levels can drive. Insulin also inhibits fat release from fat cells and this. Progesterone is the second primary reproductive hormone in women and is released from the corpus luteum that develops after release of the egg at ovulation. While it has a tremendous number of roles in the body most of them aren't that relevant to this book and I will once again focus on fat loss, fat gain while briefly addressing training.
As a steroid hormone, progesterone has a structure similar to many other hormones in the body and can actually be converted to aldosterone involved in water balance , cortisol a stress hormone , and the androgens. Due to that structural similarity, progesterone can bind to four different receptors.
The first is the progesterone receptor itself where a normal signal will be sent. At the. Progesterone is also an antagonist at the androgen and aldosterone receptor, not only blocking the effects of the hormones that would normally bind there but sending an actual negative signal. This cross reactivity not only explains many of progesterone's effects but is critical for the discussion of birth control in Chapter 3.
As I described above, progesterone remains low during the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle and. And as I'll describe, as much as estrogen tends to get the blame for so many aspects of.
Not only does it have its own profoundly negative direct effects, it also acts to cancel out estrogen's many positive effects, essentially doubling its negative effects in this regard. Before discussing progesterone's negative effects, let me examine its one potential benefit in terms of fat loss. I mentioned above that the increase in progesterone is the cause of an increase in women's body temperature after ovulation and that Basal Body Temperature BBT has long been used to indicate when ovulation has occurred.
Along with changes in vaginal mucus due to estrogen , this can be used to determine a woman's peak fertility. Along with this increase in body temperature comes an increase in. This is another effect that is variable between women with. During the luteal phase, following ovulation, progesterone starts to.
In premise this should benefit weight and fat loss. This is counteracted by the fact that, during this time, both hunger and cravings are increased, adding to the fact that women are more prone to food cravings already 16a.
This can make controlling food intake more difficult and, on average, women's calorie intake increases more than their metabolic rate. The increase in hunger during the luteal phase occurs for several reasons. As I mentioned above, a primary one is the drop in estrogen from before ovulation which causes both serotonin and dopamine levels to go down.
While progesterone by itself does not appear to increase hunger, it does so in the presence of estrogen, which describes is the hormonal profile at this time Progesterone causes some degree of insulin resistance described below and one consequence of this is that blood sugar may become unstable.
This can cause blood sugar levels to fall, also stimulating hunger. Finally, although leptin levels go up during the luteal phase which should help to control hunger , leptin resistance also develops so that this effect is blunted.
When diet. There are supplements that can potentially help to avoid this that I will discuss in Chapter In premise, so long as food intake can be controlled during this time, the increase in metabolic rate during the luteal phase can be used to enhance fat loss.
Alternately, food intake could be increased slightly during this phase which could increase diet adherence for those women seeking fat loss I will discuss this again in Chapter I mentioned above that progesterone can bind to the aldosterone receptor, which is involved in water retention in the body. Since it blocks aldosterone from binding and causing water retention, progesterone causes women to be less likely to retain water during the first half of the luteal phase. As with the surge in estrogen before ovulation, this drop in progesterone changes how the body handles sodium and women on a high-sodium diet during this time may show extreme amounts of water retention.
Dietary strategies to limit this will be discussed later in the book. The above are the potentially good effects of progesterone on a woman's body weight and body fat levels. Now let me look at the large number of bad effects. Like estrogen, progesterone increases LPL activity in women's lower body fat, breaking fatty acids off of chylomicrons for storage 17a.
This is compounded by the fact that progesterone also activates ASP mentioned above which is not only one of the key enzymes in storing body fat but has been described as the most potent enzyme for the fat storage process. ASP is found preferentially in subcutaneous fat which women have more of to begin with and,. Within the context of the menstrual cycle this sets up a sequence of events where the surge in estrogen before ovulation not only sensitizes the progesterone receptor but also increases the number of the fat loss inhibiting alpha-2 receptors.
Increasing progesterone levels then activates LPL and ASP ensuring that excess calorie intake driven by increased hunger is stored as body fat. As well, progesterone opposes estrogen in that it impairs insulin sensitivity meaning that the body doesn't utilize carbohydrates as well.
This can be good or bad depending on the situation. In the context of a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet, insulin resistance is not a good thing as there will be an overproduction of insulin. In contrast, insulin resistance can be beneficial on a lowered or low-carbohydrate diet As mentioned above, this insulin resistance also causes blood glucose levels to become more unstable, affecting energy levels, mood and potentially hunger.
Perhaps confusingly, the insulin resistance that develops during the luteal phase causes a decrease in carbohydrate use and an increase in fat utilization both at rest and during aerobic exercise.
While this sounds beneficial, most of the additional fat being burned is from the IMTG stored within the muscle so this does not impact the visible subcutaneous fat stores directly I will discuss this in detail in Chapter The combined effect is that progesterone increases the storage of fat in a woman's fat cells while increasing the use of fat stored in her muscles. All of which is.
Taken as a whole, the effects of progesterone are to ensure and enhance not only general fat storage but fat storage specifically in a woman's lower body.
Following ovulation, in preparation for pregnancy, the increase in progesterone will not only block estrogen's beneficial effects but will cause her to store more fat in her fat cells while burning more in her muscles.
Although metabolic rate may be up slightly, hunger and cravings will increase and this tends to increase calorie intake far above the small increase in metabolic rate. If calorie and fat intake is too high during this phase, there will be increased fat storage. In contrast, if calories can be controlled, the changes in metabolic rate can be harnessed to potentially increase fat loss. Looking briefly at training, progesterone's overall effects are quite negative. First and foremost, progesterone binds to the androgen receptor which would normally bind testosterone.
This not only prevents testosterone from binding and having a positive effect on muscle but progesterone acts as a receptor antagonist, inhibiting any effect that might be seen. Due to this, progesterone tends to decrease tendon strength and decrease the ability to build muscle recall that estrogen directly improves a woman's muscular remodeling and growth.
For endurance athletes primarily, the increase in body temperature during the luteal phase can cause problems with thermoregulation during exercise in hot or humid conditions. High-intensity endurance performance may also be impaired as the use of carbs for fuel is lowered because of the insulin resistance that develops.
An Overview of Menstrual Cycle Changes. With the above discussed, let me summarize the changes that are occurring. Early and Late Follicular Phase After menstruation, during the early follicular phase, estrogen and progesterone are both fairly low although estrogen will start to increase and have the dominant effect overall. Insulin sensitivity will be high with a woman's body using more carbohydrate for fuel at rest.
Appetite and hunger will be stable and controlled, especially in comparison to the previous luteal phase. Blood glucose levels will remain stable as well. Estrogen will be exerting anti-inflammatory effects and have a positive effect on muscular remodeling from training. Early in the follicular phase, water retention will be low after any retention from the previous late-luteal phase has disappeared and this is when women will show their lowest bodyweight.
For the most part all of the above will hold in both the early and late follicular phase with one or two exceptions. Due to the surge in estrogen, appetite will be reduced significantly in the days prior to ovulation.
This same surge can cause water retention, especially if a woman is on a high sodium diet. Early Luteal Phase. During the early luteal phase, most of the above reverses or at least starts to reverse. Body temperature increases slightly and with this will come a small increase in metabolic rate.
Hunger and cravings will tend to go up both due to the fall in estrogen after ovulation along with increasing. Due to the impact of progesterone on both LPL and ASP, fat storage will be higher than in the follicular phase and this is compounded by estrogen's effects both on anti-fat mobilizing receptors and it's sensitizing of the progesterone receptor. Since progesterone causes insulin resistance, a woman's body will use more fat for fuel and less carbohydrates both at rest and during exercise but the fat comes from within the muscle.
Blood sugar becomes unstable and this can cause energy and mood swings along with hunger. Binding of progesterone to the aldosterone receptor will cause a loss of body water and there tends to be little water retention during this phase. Due to the negative impact of progesterone on muscle along with it's blocking of the androgen receptor, muscle growth and remodeling are negatively impacted. The increase in body temperature may harm endurance performance especially in the heat.
This can cause an increase in food intake that can easily overwhelm the small. Just as with earlier in the luteal phase, cravings for high-fat and high-sugar foods are usually high here, related both to the drop in serotonin and dopamine levels. Falling dopamine. As progesterone. Blood sugar levels often become even more unstable during this. The same basic. While not frequently mentioned, sleep is often interrupted during the late luteal phase as well.
Melatonin, a hormone predominantly involved in sleep, is more inhibited by the impact of even small amounts of light, and this can prevent women from sleeping well There are a number of strategies. A sleep mask may also be useful and I will discuss specific sleep supplements in Chapter 23 that can be used.
Again, there are different patterns here with some women experiencing symptoms in the early luteal phase. Exhaustion, irritability, anger, problems with concentration and mood swings are common as well as I mentioned, in PMDD, this may reach the extreme of depression, anxiety or suicidal thoughts.
Treating the symptoms of PMS have always been of great interest for what should be obvious reasons and many approaches have been tried or shown to be beneficial with an equal number of often claimed remedies having zero effect.
A number of dietary supplements, including specific vitamins and minerals along with others may help to alleviate many of the typical PMS symptoms as well and I will provide recommendations in Chapter Finally, in preparation for shedding the uterine lining and the start of menstruation, cramps are common here and these may continue into the early stages of menstruation as bleeding starts.
Related to falling levels of progesterone, the cause of the cramping are prostaglandins, short lived chemical messengers, that cause the uterus to contract. As the late luteal phase ends, menstruation and the next cycle begins. Women may suffer from. As mentioned, some. Summary of the Menstrual cycle. I've summarized the primary general changes that occur in a woman's physiology that occur across the menstrual cycle and this chart, or a variation on it, will appear multiple times throughout this book.
As you can see clearly, there are changed in fuel utilization, fat storage, hunger, appetite, water retention and others that occur due to the impact of either estrogen, progesterone with estrogen and progesterone typically having roughly opposite effects in the body. From a fat loss perspective, both estrogen and progesterone have positive and negative effects although it's arguable that the late luteal phase when progesterone is dominant is truly the problem time. Early Follicular.
Early Luteal. Late Luteal. Menses days. PMS days. Dominant Hormone. Insulin Sensitivity. Fuel at Rest. Fuel During Exercise. Fat increased. Fat Storage. Metabolic Rate. Blood Glucose. Water retention. Increased highest. Muscle Growth. Hopefully the above chart makes it clear just how much more complicated a woman's physiology is. There are major changes occurring at least every 2 weeks and in some cases even. These changes interact, overlap and often reverse completely in contrast, men.
Addressing women's needs for diet or fat loss means taking those changes into account, taking advantage of the positives while minimizing the negatives. Other Hormones. While I have focused on the differences in the reproductive hormones in this chapter in order to describe the menstrual cycle, there are other differences between women and men's hormones that are important or worth addressing at least briefly and I'll round out the chapter by looking at a few of them.
One hormone that will not be discussed here is cortisol as it will be discussed in detail in Chapter Growth Hormone GH Growth hormone is involved in many processes in the body but a primary one in adults is the mobilization of fat. Women show higher levels of GH than men along with an larger increase in response to exercise.
This is probably part of why women use more fat for fuel under some conditions. Insulin The hormone insulin is one about which there is a great deal of confusion and mistaken information. While all too frequently blamed for being the cause of fat gain it's better to think of insulin as a general storage hormone. It impacts on fat metabolism, stimulating fat storage and inhibiting fat mobilization and burning but it also increases the storage of carbohydrate in skeletal muscle and liver and is involved in skeletal muscle growth.
In general, women have lower levels of insulin along with better insulin sensitivity than men. This is more pronounced during the follicular phase when estrogen increases insulin sensitivity and is decreased in the luteal phase when progesterone causes some degree of insulin resistance. I would imagine that almost all readers are familiar with thyroid hormone although, like so many. Thyroid also impacts on fat cell metabolism helping to mobilize fat out of the cells and skeletal muscle.
T4 is primarily a storage hormone which is converted to the more active T3 in other tissues in the body, especially the liver. Reproductive hormones interact with T3, estrogen decreases levels of active thyroid hormone while progesterone increases them. This may be part of the metabolic rate increase during the luteal phase. T3 can also be converted inside of tissues to T2 which has it's own metabolic effects there Women are significantly more likely to be hypothyroidal meaning that their thyroid gland releases insufficient levels of thyroid hormones having more issues when iodine intake is insufficient.
They are also three times as likely to suffer from thyroid cancer as men and this is probably related to the direct effect of estrogen on thyroid hormone metabolism Women are also more likely to suffer from. In the case of. Hashimoto's the immune system attacks the thyroid gland and can cause swings from low to high thyroid. All medical cases of hypothyroid are treated with thyroid hormone to replace the hormone that is not being produced normally.
Either T4 or a combination of T4 and T3 are typically given and some women. Of more relevance to this book, in addition to their already generally lower levels of thyroid hormones, women's levels can be impacted significantly by certain diet and training practices, this effect being both large and rapid. Women's overall dietary choices can also negatively impact on thyroid hormone levels and by extension their metabolic rate and I will discuss these later in the book.
Among it's other effects in the body,. Determination of hypothyroid of any sort. The Catecholamines. The catecholamine hormones are refers to adrenaline and noradrenaline in America and epinephrine. In contrast, noradrenaline norepinephrine is released from nerve terminals and only has effects very locally where it is.
Released in response to a variety of stressors, the catecholamines raise heart rate, blood pressure,. While women initially increase levels during exercise to the same degree as men, they rapidly adapt to exercise and no. The catecholamines also interact with thyroid hormone in controlling metabolic rate along with fat mobilization.
Thyroid hormones sensitizes the catecholamine receptors meaning that the hormones send a more potent signal while the catecholamines stimulate conversion of T4 to T3 in the liver. Like thyroid, levels of the catecholamines drop during dieting and these two factors are a large part of the overall decrease in metabolic rate.
As with the differences in GH described above, these differences are probably. Adrenaline epinephrine , as it's name suggests is. Many readers may have heard these hormones referred to as the fight or flight hormones. In general women show lower levels of the. Leptin I mentioned leptin briefly above want to examine it equally briefly here I will discuss its effect in.
Leptin is a hormone released primarily from fat cells and it's discovery in changed the field of obesity research forever. Not only did it indicate that fat cells were far more than just an inert storage space but would lead to the realization that they produced numerous hormones involved in.
Early research had suggested that there was some way that the body or brain could "know" how much fat an animal was carrying or how much it weighed so that metabolism and food intake could be adjusted. Although the system is much more complicated, leptin provided a mechanism for how this could occur. Leptin levels turn out to be related to two primary factors. The first is the amount of body fat someone is carrying with higher levels of body fat leading to higher leptin levels.
The second is the amount someone is eating over several days with leptin levels rapidly changing in response to alterations in food especially carbohydrate intake. In the early days of leptin research, it was thought that leptin acted to prevent obesity but this is now known to be false. Decreasing leptin levels is also involved in menstrual cycle dysfunction, discussed in Chapter Perhaps surprisingly, women turn out to have higher levels of leptin than men.
While some of this is simply due to having more total body fat, women's fat cells also produce more leptin than men's due to the effect of estrogen. While estrogen acts to generally sensitize the brain to leptin as I mentioned above, women do tend to show relatively more leptin resistance than men overall, meaning that it cannot send as potent of a signal.
As well, although leptin levels increase during the luteal phase possibly in response to the surge of estrogen right before ovulation , leptin resistance increases further. Finally, in response to dieting and exercise, women's bodies show a different response than men's and it looks like woman's brains may respond differently to changing leptin levels than men's. All of this adds to a woman's general physiological tendency to store and hold onto body fat as it means that women's bodies may fight back harder and adapt more quickly to dieting or exercise, slowing fat loss to a greater degree than would be seen in men.
I will discuss this in detail in Chapter 9. Relative to body weight and body fat specifically leptin helped to. Having examined the normal menstrual cycle in detail in the last chapter in terms of the major hormonal changes that occur and how it affects a women's physiology, I want to next look at some commonly experienced situations that will change a woman's physiology from that of the normal menstrual cycle this will not include explicit disease states which are outside of the scope of this book.
I will refer to these as hormonal modifiers throughout this book and each will alter a woman's physiology in a very specific and often dramatic way with implications for her nutritional or fat loss guidelines.
While each hormonal modifier is distinct in its own way, there are commonalities and this will allow me to group them somewhat going forwards. Effective Hormonal States. In the previous chapter, I discussed the three primary hormones which impact on a woman's overall. Each has its own distinct effects and, when one or the other is relatively dominant in a woman's body, it generally results in a fairly similar physiology.
So regardless of the specific hormonal modifier present, two women with an estrogen-like, progesterone- like or androgen-like physiology will be considered to have a similar physiology in terms of the nutritional. The androgen-like physiology is slightly more complicated in that it may generate an estrogen-like or progesterone-like physiology depending on other factors. Each effective hormonal state will be related to. While there is no truly "normal' menstrual cycle, in that the variation between two women or within the same woman can be extremely large, it is still possible for the cycle to become extremely disrupted.
While there are less severe disruptions I will mainly focus on amenorrhea and oligomenorrhea here. As both will be discussed in some detail in Chapter 12, I will only look at each briefly here. Amenorrhea refers to the absence of a menstrual cycle and is defined clinically as a lack of menstruation for 90 days or more with less than three total cycles in a year some women will not menstruate for extended lengths of time.
Strictly speaking, amenorrhea can occur under many different situations. This can include a woman who has begun to menstruate at all called primary amenorrhea , pregnancy where menstruation stops due to not being needed and birth control which deliberately shuts off the normal cycle although some bleeding may still occur.
There can be numerous medical causes for amenorrhea but none of these represent the type of amenorrhea that I will discus in this book.It examine the baseline physiological differences between women and men for whom most advice has traditionally been geared ltle with all aspects of basic nutrition, sports nutrition, mcfonald loss and muscle gain. This will allow women to truly optimize all aspects of their nutrition for optimal health hhe the womens book vol 1 lyle mcdonald free download. The impact of the menstrual cycle, hormonal birth control, PCOS, menstrual cycle dysfunction and the changes that occur at menopause are all addressed. Even when examining that limited data, differences have been found in almost every physiological system womes examined. Women both store and lose fat in a different pattern distinct from men. There are differences in the stress response, how her body adapts to dieting and weight loss. Women even differ from men in how they metabolize caffeine. In some cases, downloar differences may be fairly subtle. In others they are quite extreme. And yet even in the womens book vol 1 lyle mcdonald free download often go golmaal 3 2010 hindi full movie free download ignored. In the realm of dieting, fat loss and muscle gain, approaches developed by male coaches for male athletes are often either ineffective or, in some cases, outright damaging. Women also face issues such as menstrual cycle the womens book vol 1 lyle mcdonald free download hormonal dysfunction or bone loss that men simply never face. There is also the vast amount of misinformation about how women should eat or exercise. Arguably the primary consideration for women is the menstrual cycle, the roughly 28 day cycle where her hormones vary drastically from week to week, altering her physiology along with it. Examples include hormonal birth controlPoly-Cystic Ovary Syndrome, sub-clinical hyperandrogenism elevated testosterone levels and menstrual cycle dysfunction including amenorrhea.
