Today, I am blessed to have here with me Melanie Avalon. She is a SAG-AFTRA actress and host of the top iTunes podcasts, The Melanie Avalon Biohacking Podcast and The Intermittent Fasting Podcast. She has been featured in numerous publications, including USA Today, Forbes, Fox13, and Entrepreneur, and a speaker at Dave Asprey’s 2021 Biohacking Conference. 

Melanie was born and raised in the South and graduated from the University of Southern California with a double BA in film and theatre in 2012 after leaving high school a year early at age 17. Since graduating, Melanie has worked steadily in acting, audiobook recording, and writing about a Paleo diet and lifestyle at Paleoactress.com. She has also starred in several films and television productions, narrated several audiobooks, and written the bestseller The What When Wine Diet. Being an "old soul," Melanie is renowned for her vivacious, optimistic, upbeat, and enchanting attitude. "Live vicariously through yourself!" is her credo. 

She holds certifications from the WSET as a wine specialist, the AFPA as a holistic nutritionist, and Mensa International as a member. To assist folks with food sensitivities, she created the popular iTunes app "Food Sense Guide," which often appears in the top 10 of all iTunes Food and Drinks apps. 

Serrapeptase 125, the first product in Melanie's widely awaited AvalonX supplement line, was recently released. With AvalonX, she wants to offer the best possible versions of the supplements she now uses, ones that have been carefully designed for purity, potency, transparency, and sustainability.

Melanie presently manages 3 Facebook groups that are quickly expanding and have over 13K members. She splits her time between Los Angeles and Atlanta and enjoys great wine, juicy steaks, and all things shiny. 

In this episode, Melanie speaks about her own experiences with diets. She also talks about certain topics, such as her encounters with poisoning, specifically heavy metals and mould. As well as her experiences with her guests in her podcast that deals with health.

[01:37] Diets and Getting Fascinated with Health and Nutrition

  • A low-carb diet is where you can start experiencing success in weight loss.
  • What and how much we eat affects our entire constitution and overall health.
  • The more you learn, the more you want to share what you’ve learned to help others.
  • Melanie started trying the Paleo diet after she read Robb Wolf’s The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet.

[11:05] Getting Heavy Metal Poisoning from Fish

  • People don’t realize and tend to underestimate how much mercury there is in the fish you eat.
  • Melanie thinks that swordfish should be made illegal to be sold in restaurants due to the amount of mercury you can contract from it.
  • Eat fish in moderation to avoid heavy metal poisoning.
  • You can get mercury poisoning not only from fish but from silver tooth fillings as well.
  • Symptoms of this poisoning include fatigue, anemia, memory loss, anxiety, hot flashes, and insomnia.

[25:25] What Happens When Toxins Get into the Body?

  • Our bodies can detoxify on their own; however, we are not accustomed to the overwhelming toxic burden that we have nowadays.
  • Every day toxins such as heavy metals in the food we eat, pesticides, skincare products, and makeup aren’t regulated, which is why we consume more than we should.
  • An abundance of certain compounds in makeup can cause you to gain weight and make it hard to lose it. Not to mention carcinogens.
  • The solution to pollution is dilution.
  • There are also studies about obesogens that states that they may affect insulin levels as well.

[39:05] The Most Common Themes in Interviews

  • Most people are all about bio-individuality: different diets and things work for different people.
  • Most of them seem to be focused on fasting as well, which is quite popular at the moment.
  •  Blood sugar control is a common theme since many people have a lot of trouble dealing with it.
  • There is no cookie-cutter approach to anything. Different strokes work for different folks.
  • A specific diet can’t work for literally everyone. It’s not as simple as eating less food and moving your body, and you immediately get results. Outcomes depend on every person.

AND MUCH MORE!
