Episode 11: Intermittent Fasting Challenges: Mental And Physical Hunger, Explaining IF To Family And Friends, Eating Disorders Vs. Fasting, Drinking Late, Cravings, Workouts And Longer Fasts
Welcome to episode 11 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.
In today's episode, we tackle a ton of challenges people may face when following an intermittent fasting lifestyle. We'll provide tips and tricks for combatting physical and mental hunger (it's usually more mental!), dealing with awkward situations with friends and family, how to adjust IF when you stay out late drinking, and working out with longer fasts. We also discuss the difference between intermittent fasting and eating disorders (they're not the same!) and much more!
