Ep 85 We’re Going Keto-Green™

Our Girlfriend Doctor is back! Dr. Anna Cabeca returns to the show to share a bunch of wisdom from her now #1 Bestseller, The Hormone Fix.

On this episode, Dr. Anna talks with Sheri and Nancy about the symptoms of hormone imbalance, her approach to a healthy and slimming Keto-Green diet, and she throws in some nuggets on intermittent fasting, ketogenic diet myths, and why hormone health in the middle of life is important from the inside out. We just love her.


  • Dr. Anna’s book, The Hormone Fix, is now a #1 bestseller, which proves how many women are curious about their hormone health and not getting the information they need from traditional venues.
  • Dr. Anna explains that a Keto-Green diet is far different from the traditional ketogenic approach — all protein and fat. Keto-Green is full of plant-powered goodness, healthy proteins, and healthy fats.
  • There is one common thread with every longevity society: their diet includes a ton of plants.
  • In the Keto-Green™ lifestyle, we use ketones for fuel over glucose.
  • Dr. Anna explains that intermittent fasting can be fast for at least 13 to 15 hours between dinner the night before, and breakfast the next day. And when breaking the fast, our bodies will be much more thankful if we reintroduce healthy plant-based foods.
  • Get alkaline! Leafy greens and healthy fats are great, but managing our stress is at the top of the list.
  • In our mid-30s, our hormones start to change and we see a decline in progesterone. This is a crucial time for self-care and healthy habits.
  • Use the golden hours of the evening to wind down. Whether it’s a bath, making a tea or taking time to journal, the more we take the time to relax at the end of the day, the better for our mind, body, and spirit.
