    This was one of my fav vlogs of yours πŸ™‚ I started using the cup a few months ago and it is great. Definitely try it, if you haven’t πŸ™‚ I would also recommend to all the women out there to read Lara Briden’s book Period Repair Manual. Even if you don’t have any issues, it gives great advice abt PMS and other period related stuff. Have fun in Hawaii and happy birthday πŸ™‚

    Z, did you train for Bioindividual Nutrition?? Oh man, that looks awesome πŸ˜πŸ˜‡πŸ˜˜
    It is too pricey for me and no practitioner in my countries. Will you do individual sessions? (charged, of course)

    Hey Zuzka! As always, great topics. In your video you showed a clip of a workout you did during your heaviest period day. Is that workout already up and running in the ZGYM. It looked like a really good one. If so, what is it titled?

    Have fun in Hawaii. I recently met a native from there and she corrected my pronunciation. She told me its pronounced Ha-Va-ii. Just thought I’d share that fun fact. XOXO

    This was the best coffee talk ever! Very glad you addressed bio-individuality. About a year and a half ago, I started with nutrition response testing, and it’s transformed my health. Before that, I was so sick I had trouble walking and could no longer drive because I had lost muscle coordination. I has also gained about 55 pounds (still working on taking it off. Have about 25 more pounds to go). Nutrition response testing has shown me exactly what foods I need to avoid to be healthy (for example, my body hates all grains). Learning what works for my body has made all the difference. I’ve also learned they sometimes my sympathetic nervous system gets overstimulated from too much cardio, and during those phases I have to back off to let my thyroid and adrenals come back into balance. I’m not one who can handle any caffeine at all or any form of overstimulation without getting out of whack, so I very much appreciate your addressing individual differences in health and nutrition. πŸ™‚

      Hi Allison, who did you go to for nutrition response testing? is this done by a nutritionist? with lab testing? I looked up on the BioIndividual Nutrition website and no practitioner in my countries and I am kinda reluctant to go to a nutritionist (I probably have the clichΓ© of a young girl who did evening courses to learn food pyramid and that’s it) and GenMed are sometimes less educated than I am πŸ™
      thanks so much

        Hi Laila. I go to an advanced nutrition response clinician. Also known as Applied Kinesiology, NRT is a non invasive procedure that uses muscle strength to determine what organs are under stress and why (for example, from chemicals, metals, parasites, etc). It also uses test samples of foods to discover what foods make the individual sicker and which foods are healing for that person. It sounds crazy, but I’m living proof that it works. My blood work was disastrous before I started getting NRT. I was on all kinds of medications but kept getting worse. Now I’m off of all medication and my blood work is perfect.

    Have you tried menstraul cups? Theyre made from medical grade silicone so are less drying, healthier and better for the environment.

    I use one from a Czech company called Yuuki cup and its amazing. I started with a British brand called mooncup but found leakage during exercise. But the Yuuki cup is slightly firmer silicone, so no more leaks during intense zgym workouts!

    Very interesting Coffee Talk!

    I had constant reactions to tampons and pads growing up, so mostly stuck to pads because external rashes and burning weren’t as bad as it happening inside. In my 20’s I finally got tired of it, got out my sewing machine, and made cloth pads. No more rashes and burning! But eventually I found menstrual cups & switched to those. My personal favorite was MeLuna. I used them for many years, but a couple of years ago switched to year round birth control pills to eliminate my periods (mine were 10-15 days long and crazy heavy). I have been multiple times healthier and feel so much better since that change, so for me, I think it is the right thing.

    I like your talk about bioindividual nutrition. I have tried being a vegetarian, but I do better with meat in my diet. Eventually I developed celiac disease, so I had to go on a gluten free diet. So I tried paleo, but I couldn’t get myself to follow it and giving up dairy didn’t work for me. So I stuck to a standard gluten free diet, with some alterations due to developing addition food intolerances, until a few weeks ago. Now I am doing an almost low carb diet, and it has been working well for me. With ZGym workouts, on my regular diet I was losing a half to one pound per week, now I am losing one and a half to two pounds per week! I feel good too, not moody like I was on paleo.
