Welcome to episode 5 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 tackle COFFEE in all its glory! We'll talk about its health benefits, how it affects the fasted state, how you should (and should not) drink it for the best results, the details on MCTs and Bulletproof Coffee, and much more! We also answer listener questions about using essential oils while fasting (and let ya know how to make your own AWESOME homemade, non-insulin spiking breath freshener), as well as what to do if you're insulin resistant and/or not seeing results within a few weeks of starting IF.
