031 – Disordered Eating, Blood Sugar Imbalance, Adrenal Fatigue & Sleep

Mindy Gorman-Plutzer brings 25 years of experience to her private practice as a Certified Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle Practitioner and Eating Psychology Coach. 

Mindy’s life experience and training inspired her to create a framework that combines functional nutrition, positive psychology, and mind/body science; introducing a compassionate resolution to physical and emotional challenges resulting from chronic and complex health issues, as they relate to Eating Disorders.

She’s the author of The Freedom Promise: 7 Steps To Stop Fearing What Food Will Do To You and Start Embracing What It Can Do For You.

  • What do we need to know about low calorie diets?

 

  • What is disordered eating? What is at the root of these unhealthy eating and lifestyle patterns? How can we all display some of these patterns without realising that we do?

 

  • How does disordered eating impact your body physiologically? What happens to your blood sugar and insulin? What are the symptoms of blood sugar imbalance?

 

  • How does this blood sugar irregularity impact adrenal function and insulin resistance?

 

  • How does this vicious loop of blood disordered eating, blood sugar imbalance and adrenal dysfunction subsequently play a role in the quality of sleep?

 

  • What are the steps in the journey back to restorative eating and better sleep?

 

  • In all Mindy’s years working with disordered eating, what has she found to be the most profound intervention?

Truth is tricky. It’s so easy to try a new diet or protocol and slip into denial over symptoms that arise. A classic version of this is missing a period after intermittent fasting but trying to ignore it. For a woman your cycle is as vital in information as a lab test!⁣

Have you tried a new diet or protocol and ever convinced yourself that it’s working for you just because you’ve lost a lot of weight? Weight loss has become the highest parameter of efficacy even when there is chaos happening within which can include and not limited to:⁣

💛Frequent headaches ⁣

☸️Dysfunctional cycle⁣

💮Low iron or B12 within few months⁣

💜Frequent fevers and coughs⁣

💛Bad skin⁣

☸️Poor quality of sleep even if you are sleeping nine hours⁣

💮Mood fluctuation that includes anger, sadness and overwhelm⁣


💛☸️💮💜💛☸️💮💜💛☸️💮💜💛☸️⁣


Weight loss should not be enough if all this is happening as well. Health should come before anything else.⁣

Fasting is great! But I’m seeing a lot of people who are unable to get benefits from this ancient practice. My guess is that this has a lot to do with sequence, present diet, level of stress and what’s happening within their body.⁣


💙❤️🤍💙❤️🤍💙🤍💙❤️🤍💙❤️🤍⁣


Some of the indications that the specific fasting approach you are following is not working for you are:⁣

💙Feeling more stressed and having poor resilience to stressors around you. This can include feeling weepy, angry or overwhelmed.⁣

💙Struggling with fatigue and forcing yourself to get through the fasting period irrespective of tiredness, dizziness or giddy.⁣

💙One of the greatest signs of impact is struggling with sleep. This can include inability to stay asleep and not being able to stay asleep for enough time.⁣

💙Not getting a period when you have always had a perfect cycle is a huge red flag. If your body thinks that it’s a state of emergency it shuts off reproductive function and you can miss ovulation and menstruation. I’ve actually heard women say they are happy about missing a cycle but this is really dangerous!⁣


💙🤍💙🤍💙🤍💙🤍💙🤍💙🤍💙🤍⁣


Does this mean fasting is not good? Far from it! I call the fasting approach that I use in practice as Strategic Fasting. This refers to using fasting techniques in specific ways at specific times with specific foods in the feeding window. It can be immensely therapeutic provided you bring it in correctly. ⁣

It’s so strange that so many women do not place stress as the greatest root cause of all their menstruated challenges. One episode of high stress can wreak havoc on your hormones and impact the flow of your cycle. This is why you’ll have an early period, a later period, no period or a heavy period after you’ve had an argument with someone or a bad day at work.⁣


🌺🤍🌸💗🌺🤍🌸💗🌺🤍🌸💗🌺🤍⁣


🌸The reason for this is that your body takes cholesterol and produces both cortisol which is the stress hormone and progesterone which is your sex hormone. ⁣

🌺When your body thinks that it is a state of emergency then it shuts off non essential functions including the production of sex hormones. ⁣

🌸Instead it prioritises the production of your stress hormone cortisol. ⁣

🌺This means you can go a whole cycle without ovulation or making progesterone.⁣

🌸This makes you stressed, anxious, unable to sleep, overwhelmed, depressed and a whole lot more!⁣


🌺🤍🌸💗🌺🤍🌸💗🌺🤍🌸💗🌺🤍⁣


Women’s health and women’s bodies are beautiful spaces where there is harmony deep within. Your body just tries to help you when something is off. The beauty is that you can bring everything back on track with the right steps in the right sequence. If you want to guide your health back to harmony, reach out!⁣
