There is no wrong answer. If any or all of the above apply, the Fasting4Menopause Kickstart Programme is for you.
You’ve probably heard about intermittent fasting and its many health benefits.
Perhaps you’re keen to try it, but with so much conflicting information out there, you may not be sure how to begin.
My Fasting4Menopause Kickstart Programme gives you everything you need to know to get a solid fasting practice in place from Day 1.
Using a simple and straightforward approach, I break down everything you need to know into four weekly live sessions, with plenty of support in between.
I’m Karen Finn, and I’m a weight loss and wellness coach whose menopause has been transformed by intermittent fasting.
“The Kickstart Programme is clear and concise. It’s a great way to learn how to get started with intermittent fasting. Karen really knows her stuff! Fasting is not as difficult as one may think. This approach is very manageable and sustainable. Thank you, Karen!”

The best part about intermittent fasting is that it’s free and flexible. My clients are always saying how liberating and empowering this lifestyle is.
This is because YOU call the shots.
The sense of freedom you’ll feel from not constantly thinking about food or following a restrictive and unsustainable diet regimen is priceless.
I get it… the idea of fasting can be scary. But more often than not, people are pleasantly surprised at how easy it is. In fact, it’s much easier than a diet.
Yes, you heard that right: intermittent fasting is not a diet.
It takes some commitment, but the benefits are so worth it. A common saying in the IF world is that people come for the weight loss, but they stay for the health benefits.
Let’s look at some of the benefits
Lowers inflammation – fewer aches & pains, less puffiness
Improves blood sugar regulation – no more ‘hangry-ness’ or mid-afternoon energy slumps
Increases energy levels – regular physical activity gets a whole lot easier
Promotes muscle growth hormones – maintaining muscle mass is critical as we age
Improves gut health – sort out bloating & digestion issues once and for all
Boosts brain health – achieve greater mental clarity/less brain fog
Improves sleep – your ability to lose weight is closely tied to sleep quality
Burns fat – using stored fat as energy positively impacts your health on many levels
Stimulates “autophagy” – A cell regeneration process that aids in disease prevention.
If you’d like to take control of your (peri)menopausal health and experience freedom from dieting, intermittent fasting is for you.*
