Welcome to Episode 80 of The Intermittent Fasting Podcast, hosted by Melanie Avalon, author of What When Wine Diet: Lose Weight And Feel Great With Paleo-Style Meals, Intermittent Fasting, And Wine and Gin Stephens, author of Delay, Don't Deny: Living An Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle

Today's episode is sponsored by Atrantil! On episode 79, we discuss the amazing Atrantil with its founder Dr. Kenneth Brown. Atrantil can help you beat IBS and SIBO! Atrantil contains natural herb compounds which work syngeristically to control bacteria in the small intestine, while also providing antioxidant and other GI benefits! You can use Atrantil to reduce (or even eliminate!) gas, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea, and also to support digestive health in general! Be sure and give the product a full 30 days to evaluate its effectiveness, as it can take that long for some people to get your gut bacteria back in line, but it's so worth it!! And it's got a 100% money back guarantee! Use the link lovemytummy.com/ifp with the code IFP, to get 10% off your purchase!
