GAME CHANGER Podcast!!!

So grateful I found this podcast!!! It has completely changed the game for me on my IF journey, and the content, perspectives, and guidance offered by Gin and Melanie is EXACTLY what I’ve been searching for!! They both offer such unique perspectives, they don’t overstep their limits (not MDs), yet their style of conversation and their experience/knowledge offers such reputable, yet PRACTICAL + REALISTIC strategies to safely and sustainably pursue an intermittent fasting lifestyle. I pick up something new, refreshing, and tactical with each episode. I have been binge listening since discovering these delightful, knowledgeable ladies. I appreciate the work you are putting out there so much!! I have also managed to bust through a very stubborn weight loss plateau along the way over the last couple months I have been listening. Keep the content comin’, girls!!

Hosts are passive aggressive towards each other

I took a break from listening about a year ago because the vibe between Melanie and Gin felt toxic. Gin needs to be right all. the. time. and Melanie needs to put Gin in her place. I started listening again and it’s still happening. These two need to stop working together, or change the dynamic.

Veggie capsules

As always such good information! I’m interested in the magnesium supplement but they are put into veggie capsules. I have heard that vegetable capsules are not good for you, cause stomach and digestive issues and are made of substances that our body doesn’t breakdown as well as being toxic. I read that gelatin capsules are actually better for you. I was told that the veggie capsules actually stick to your intestines. With that said, is it possible to break them open, pour them into water and drink? Thanks. Cynthia
