What a treat!

I love the Melanie Avalon Biohacking Podcast because Melanie keeps it real. She brings real subject matter experts on her show and always asks amazing and tough questions. Melanie isn't afraid to go against status quo and is super smart with her facts. Thanks for all you do and share Melanie!!

Life changing podcast

I started listening to this podcast in 2018. To say it has changed my life is such an understatement. Intermittent fasting has given me so much freedom from food obsession! I have also regained my mental sharpness and energy. On most days, I feel truly amazing. I remember hearing the words "Delay Don't Deny" from Gin all those years ago and a lightbulb literally went off in my head. I've never looked back! Thank you to Melanie, Gin, Cynthia and Vanessa. I appreciate you all so much!

Grateful for all the work you do. Laura
