How many hours have you logged in front of a camera in the past year?
Zoom fatigue is a real thing, and the expectation to constantly be available for virtual webcam meetings definitely takes its toll on all of us.
You may be surprised to find out that some of the people who spend the most time on camera, even actors and podcasters, actually don’t enjoy being filmed most of the time.
And joining us on the show today is the wonderful Melanie Avalon, a professional actress, author of “What When Wine” and host of The Melanie Avalon Biohacking Podcast and The Intermittent Fasting Podcast.
This is a fun conversation, and Melanie has a lot of unique perspective—she’s definitely dabbled in the fringes as far as different dietary approaches go. Listen in, we’re chatting about:
- The benefits of intermittent fasting for longevity
- Why The Cookie Diet was a bad idea
- What it’s like to be a morning person versus a night person
- How to color outside the lines when it comes to diet
- What to do about Zoom fatigue
- How to gracefully handle negative feedback and online haters
- And tons more…
Let’s go hang out with Melanie.

Here’s a review for the Wild Challenge mobile app, brand new from us, that came in on the App Store. Brian gives it 5 out of 5 stars and says:
The closest thing to a coach.
This app has me faithfully engaged in my eating like nothing ever has before. Designed around the NYT bestseller The Wild Diet, it lets you pick your priorities and keeps you engaged through the challenges.
It’s complete with shopping lists and recipes. It also helps you track your sleep, water intake and overall condition. And you can sync it to a couple different fitness devices.
Plus the little messages throughout the day really help.
Hey, Brian, thank you so much for this feedback.
We put a lot of effort, especially Alyson, into this new app and getting all these bells and whistles to work.
