Variety is the Spice of Life

Thank goodness men and women are different. It would be quite boring if we were all the same. Each gender has it's cycles and requirements that need to be addressed. In the current Politically Correct climate of gender neutrality this information might seem archaic, but the proof is in the pudding. There is no way of getting around Male and Female polymorphisms, hormones, shape, reproductive capacity, etc... Any shame you might have recognizing these differences can be exorcised by David Gray, author of 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus,' and Dave Asprey of the 'Bullet Proof Diet.' Their analysis of current hormone theory has given credence to many long held observations/stereotypes. 

Rhythm(Satva)

Nature has it's own form of brilliant birth control. We are regulated through endogenous and exogenous hormones. What's funny is that Male and Female hormone states are mirror opposites. When we zig they zag. For example, men can more easily pitch a tent in the morning, high testosterone(T), than in the evening when our female counterparts are reaching their (T) zenith. There's about 7 billion people on the planet if you believe the different census bureau's. Imagine what it would be if we peaked at the same time???? Mass hysteria!!!!!!

Satva, in sanskrit, means rhythm. You could look at men and women as having syncopated beats, different rhythms.  This changes our relationship to the timing of food because certain meals at the wrong time of day can really hinder your performance. For example, once I let go of having carbohydrates in the morning my physique and mood dramatically changed for the better. Without the insulin bump in the morning my cravings disappeared leaving me with more energy and focus. It is important to turn our Mitochondria on. They are the little generators of our cells. Men and women have different requirements for keeping their generators humming along.
