New to podcast

Lost weight on 5-2 diet. Just finished Fast Feast Repeat and starting Clean Fast. What is the recommendation on eating proteins during eating window. I’m 76 years old and all the advise is to keep up protein intake due to muscle loss with aging.

Unhealthy host - No longer a follower

I used to love how this podcast was motivational and health focused, I love Gin Stephens and have enjoyed Cynthia’s knowledge and experience and wish her the best. However, after seeing the unhealthy level Melanie goes way out there - not sure if she knows how to interpret all the research, she is very obsessed, plus with her eating disorder, she is potentially bringing into question and invalidating everything she has taught, seeing her bones protrude from her wrist, neck, shoulders, knees, it invalidates all the good I believe she genuinely is trying to accomplish. I can no longer support the podcast or Melanie and I fear it’s going to do a disservice to the wonderful IF movement and community. I genuinely hope she gets help.

wants info ,

Too many ads, too much small talk!!

Get to the point!! I want information!! So frustrating. Five minutes of ads and small talk before they get to any substance!! This podcast could be 10 minutes total. Value our time and stop plugging your products.
