Today we're answering the following question from a listener: "I have had amenorrhea for 4 1/2 years now. This was due to an eating disorder, but even when I regained all the weight back a year and one half ago it still did not come back. I am frustrated because I keep gaining weight and am so fat now. I am not over my bmi, but I am definitely not thin. I really need to lose this weight, but I don't want to send extra stresses to my body. Is intermittent fasting safe for me to do at this point?"
