Book Synopsis


Includes a 30-Day fasting reset that uses the power of your cycle--even if you no longer have one!

A go-to fasting manual created specifically to address women's needs based on their hormones and menstrual cycle by Dr. Mindy Pelz, a well-known expert on women and fasting, whose fast-growing YouTube channel has become the destination for women who want to learn about fasting.

Are you among the many women who feel unheard and unseen by their doctors and health professionals? Have you become exhausted by the promise of quick-fix diets that only leave you disappointed? Well in Fast Like a Girl, Dr. Mindy helps you to take back control of your health by using the quickest path back to better health--fasting.

While most fasting advice has been a one-size-fits-all approach that leaves women with more questions than answers, in this book Dr. Mindy shares the proven strategies, specific protocols to use if you are trying to overcome a condition, fasting hacks, and tools that she has used to help hundreds of thousands of women thrive with their fasting lifestyles.

Dr. Mindy will teach you:

  • the rights steps on how to go from eating all day to intermittent fasting (13-15 hours)
  • how to safely fast longer if you choose to do so (15-72 hours)
  • how to time fasting according to your menstrual cycle (although if you don't have a cycle, she has you covered)
  • the best foods to break your fast to achieve better metabolic health

This book also includes more than 50 recipes based on the two food plans--ketobiotic and hormone feasting--she created to best support women's hormones. And, it has recipes specifically created to break a fast such as her Coconut Cacao Chia Pudding.

Inspired by the thousands of women she has worked with who have reclaimed their health with fasting, Dr. Mindy wrote this book because, "once a woman knows how to build a fasting lifestyle around her cycle, she becomes unstoppable."

Dr. Mindy Pelz is not a medical doctor. She is a chiropractor. She is not an expert in nutrition, either. Registered Dietician, Abby Langer, heavily criticizes the book. The book is published by Hay House, which is not a reputable publisher. Don't fall for her absurd claims. While intermittent fasting has already been discovered to have some positive health effects, Pelz takes it to the extreme, recommending that you enter into ketosis, which is very dangerous. She mentions autophagy as a strategy to heal yourself; however, artificially inducing autophagy by fasting has been proven to potential kill heart cells, damaging the heart.

I've done keto in the past. (I have Hashimotos/hypothyroid & sometimes adrenal issues). when I first did keto I lost 45 pounds and felt great, then I started gaining weight and having pain. my t3 tanked and I had no idea while. this book as helped so much. I've already incorporated 17 hour fasts with my cycle. It has taken away pain I was getting in my feet. If you are having hormonal issues, thyroid, adrenal, PCOS, diabetes, this book is very helpful. Dr. Mindy has YouTube videos as well if your an auditory learner. Thus book just explains more and has everything in one place. I am now able to walk on the treadmill and get outside with no pain. Hands down, I recommend this.

Well written and organized with actionable advice for all people. While focused mainly in women in all stages of life it is a good book for a supporting partner as well. Mindy Pelz has a mission to help millions to reverse diseases that can be prevented and this book is a comprehensive guide on how to do that for yourself. Has easy to understand science behind her statements along with plans of action and even some recipes. I really enjoy this book and hope that you will as well. I also bought the audio version as well.

This book is amazing and so insightful. I’ve known that my body needs a fast for years. I’ve experienced extreme stress for several years and my body changed. It got stuck! So excited to be entering into my first 72 hour water fast!
