Welcome to episode 10 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 today's episode, we discuss how to maintain activity levels while intermittent fasting, and how IF affects muscle mass. (Hint: it's GREAT for it!) We also discuss the benefits and side effects of Vegan diets, and finding what works for you, food wise. We discuss our experience with how long it takes to get back into the fasting zone after the holidays, how your body knows when to lose versus maintain weight, and what to do if you GAIN weight when you first start IF? (Oh my!)
