E27 - What, When, Wine! Melanie Avalon on the Paleo Diet, Intermittent Fasting, and Wine!

Melanie Avalon www.melanieavalon.com is an author, actress, health show host, and blogger.

Her book What, When, Wine helped us better use and understand intermittent fasting and it’s what sold me on that Paleo diet years ago.

Her podcast The Intermittent Fasting Podcast has been a favorite of mine that has helped me since I started bodybuilding as a helpful tool for cutting but more importantly a useful, and what we believe to be an essential component to overall physical and spiritual well-being.

Her newer podcast The Melanie Avalon Biohacking Podcast has featured many of my favorite Carnivores such as Paul Saladino and Shawn Baker. Both of these shows can be found on all podcast platforms.

All these resources above can be accessed via her website.
