In today’s episode I’m going to be talking about veganism, hypothalamic amenorrhea, and whether you can recover if you follow a plant-based diet.

The reason I wanted to do this podcast is because there are so many stories online which talk from personal experiences of women going vegan and then losing their period, so it’s important to understand what might be happening from a scientific perspective before making judgements based around the diet itself.

In the podcast I’ll be discussing:

  • What is a vegan diet and how does it differ from an omnivorous diet in terms of nutrition
  • Differentiating between correlation and causation of vegan diets and amenorrhea
  • The real reasons why someone might lose their period if they go vegan
  • Can you recover from HA if you eat a vegan diet?
  • Is a vegan diet superior or inferior to other diets for recovery?
