Welcome to Episode 15 of The Intermittent Fasting Podcast, hosted by Melanie Avalon, author of The What When Wine Diet: Effortless Weight Loss - Paleo-Style Meals, Intermittent Fasting, And Wine and Gin Stephens, author of Delay, Don't Deny: Living An Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle

Hi friends! In this episode, we discuss how much and what type of fats you should consider as an IF Vegan, how to break a stall, and whether you should adjust your windows. We also discuss how much weight we lost from IF specifically (compared to other diets), and tackle the issue of whether or not you can eat "whatever you want" in your fasting window. Lastly, we take another stab at the poorly misunderstood insulin!
