Book Review Part 1: In the Flo

Every day, usually twice, I commute back and forth between my home / home office and my kids’ school. (Next year, they’ll be getting their butts on the bus!) In the meantime, I’ve found some companionship with SiriusXM radio as well as an audio book. I’ve just started listening to In the Flo: Unlock Your Hormonal Advantage and Revolutionize Your Life by the author of Woman Code: Perfect Your Cycle, Amplify Your Fertility, Supercharge Your Sex Drive, and Become a Power Source.

Finished the intro and chapter 1. My take is that it’s pretty interesting and I’m learning some stuff already. The basic premise is that everything in the world is oriented for a man’s hormonal cycle, which happens every 24 hours. That’s not a concept I’d ever really thought about before! The author definitely has a point-of-view and a framework she’s writing from and it’s coming off as slightly sales-y. But not so much that I’m not going to keep listening. I’m curious to learn if the action steps she’ll recommend later on in the book are any different from what I find myself doing intuitively anyway. I’m most worried about the diet stuff because I don’t know how motivated I’ll feel to make any huge changes. But for me, I want to see if I can clear up my skin and raise libido.

One other thing I love about it so far is the way she re-writes the biology textbooks, describing female reproduction in a much more positive and empowering way than the dry, one-sided story our girls currently learn in school. I’ll be bookmarking those pages to read to my daughter, who’s 11. Stay tuned…
