Welcome to episode 4 of The Intermittent Fasting Podcast, hosted by Melanie Avalon, author of The What When Wine Diet: Paleo And Intermittent Fasting For Health And Weight Loss, and Gin Stephens, author of Delay, Don't Deny: Living An Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle. In this episode, we delve into the science of Intermittent Fasting! We'll discuss the role of insulin in hunger and weight loss, the differences between calorie restriction and intermittent fasting, and how IF affects the metabolism. We also answer listener questions about losing weight with IF when you work night shifts, and provide our thoughts on doing extended (rather than intermittent) fasts.

Note: We had a slight issue with some of the audio quality this episode, but everything will be back to normal next week!
