5 YEARS GIn So grateful WELCOME CYNTIA

I couldn’t be more excited and thankful that Cynthia is the person that Jen and Melanie selected as the new cohost of the intermittent fasting podcast. I couldn’t think of a better selection or a person that brings more clinical value to the program. An already amazing podcast with a new set up adventures in front of it.

CANT WAIT ! Oh and the missing first episode… soo worth it
