keto diet and early period?

has anyone else started a ketogenic-type diet (low carb, adequate protein, high fat) and had their period come early? i'm about 8 days early...usually pretty regular. thanks!

I just started a week ago, and nothing yet. But if you read the reddit subforum for women on keto, there's a lot of talk about periods and what to expect! Early periods is definitely on the list.

it's normal. my understanding of it is that hormones are stored in fat, and as those hormones are released as the fat is burned, it can throw things out of whack for a month or two.

+1 to check out r/xxketo though. they're wonderful.

Normal for them to be early ... Or late! I had some worries when I was keto and was several days late.
