Welcome to episode 8 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

Gin's going on a cruise! In today's episode, we give our personal tips for how to adjust your IF patterns when on vacation. (Vacation doesn't have to mean instant weight gain!) We also answer listener questions about getting enough calories with one meal a day, and ensuring adequate electrolytes when fasting, including sodium, magnesium, and potassium! We also talk about the vague "Whoosh Effect."
