Colesmommy09 ,

So much great information!

I have listened to every episode of this show (except the first one!) and I love all the information I have gained from it.

PJsFurDad ,

No longer about the listeners

They’ve lost focus and the podcast no longer feels like it’s main focus is helping listeners with Intermittent Fasting. The format needs to be worked out without Gin.

QueerRabbit ,

Used to be good…

I just turned it on after not having listened for a year and found that it has turned into a really gross podcast that just basically pushes products. Yuck. Such a shame because Melaine is quite smart and thoughtful, although it wouldn’t be apparent if you happened on this podcast at this point. Yikes.
