About ELLE RUSS

Elle Russ is a writer and host of the popular Primal Blueprint Podcast. She is the leading voice of thyroid health in the fast-growing Paleo, Primal, and Ancestral Health Movements. Originally from downtown Chicago, Elle lives and plays in Malibu, CA. You can learn more about her at ElleRuss.com

Elle wrote The Paleo Thyroid Solution after consulting with over two dozen endocrinologists, internal medicine specialists, and general practice MDs...but her thyroid condition was only getting worse - and nothing from doctors resembled a solution, or even hope. Exasperated and desperate, Elle took control of her own health and resolved two severe bouts of hypothyroidism on her own – including an acute Reverse T3 problem. Through a devoted paleo/primal lifestyle, intensive personal experimentation, and a radically modified approach to thyroid hormone replacement therapy…Elle went from fat, foggy, and fatigued – to fit, focused, and full of life!

Brain Octane MCT Oil (More expensive, as it is C8 only - which is faster assimilated and potentially more ketogenic.)

Welcome to Episode 15 of The Intermittent Fasting Podcast, hosted by Melanie Avalon, author of The What When Wine Diet: Effortless Weight Loss - Paleo-Style Meals, Intermittent Fasting, And Wine and Gin Stephens, author of Delay, Don't Deny: Living An Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle

Hi friends! In this episode, we discuss how much and what type of fats you should consider as an IF Vegan, how to break a stall, and whether you should adjust your windows. We also discuss how much weight we lost from IF specifically (compared to other diets), and tackle the issue of whether or not you can eat "whatever you want" in your fasting window. Lastly, we take another stab at the poorly misunderstood insulin!
