The best and worst of biohacking | Melanie Avalon

I’ve been super impressed with Melanie Avalon’s ability to synthesise complex topics and bring them to life for her listeners. All of her podcast episodes are a fascinating DEEP dive into the topic to elucidate the practical application.

We had a ton of positive feedback from my interview on her podcast. Our Data-Driven Fasting Facebook Group exploded after she and Gin Stephens started raving about it all the time on their Intermittent Fasting Podcast.

After binge-listening to her podcast with a wide array of fantastic guests, I had a ton of questions for Melanie.

It was great to get her on the other side of the interview mic for a rare video interview to discuss:
– How did you get interested in biohacking?
– Why did you start the biohacking podcast?
– How did you deal with imposter syndrome?
– How long did it take to feel like you owned the role?
– You have experimented with a lot of different nutritional extremes. What have you learned from each?
– What do you eat most often these days? Do you identify with a particular dietary camp now?
– What is “biohacking”? How do you define it?
