We have a place for that! There are many more useful spaces beyond these, and you can interact in as many as you like.

    IF is free. You don’t need to join our community to fast. But if you’re looking for support from a community of like-minded IFers, we are here for you at ginstephens.com/community. 

    Michelle is an IF Coach. She also has a podcast called Fast and Fabulous. 

    Michelle began to diet as a teenager. She tried calorie counting, tracking macros, and exercising.

    Then with each pregnancy, her weight crept higher. By January of 2020, Michelle reached her highest weight of over 200 pounds and was desperate to lose weight. 

    Michelle found IF by overhearing a conversation at her hair salon. She found Gin’s book, Delay, Don’t Deny, and began her IF journey. Michelle has lost more than forty pounds, has tons of energy, and loads of confidence. Her relationship with food has been healed and she is free from diet mentality. 

    Michelle’s advice: “Don’t change anything at first! The magic is on the other side. Make IF your lifestyle.”

    When Melinda’s mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in February of 2019, she was motivated to find ways to protect her own neurological health as she aged. In her research, Melinda came across IF and its powerful health benefits. She read Delay, Don’t Deny and learned about the clean fast. 

    Intermittent fasting has helped Melinda through menopause and she has lost 72 pounds. She feels she is living her best life! 

    Melinda’s advice: “Find your ‘why.’ Do your IF research. Ask yourself where you want yourself years from now.”

    Tish is the owner of a national sales agency. She struggled with her weight beginning in her thirties and followed many diets. She would always lose weight, but always gain it back. 

    Tish also struggled with diverticulitis, which is the inflammation of one or more small pouches in the digestive tract. She experienced constant digestive pain and discomfort. 

    In 2018, Tish found IF through a friend who messaged her about the ways IF might help her diverticulitis. Tish’s initial goal was health not weight loss, but she lost 55 pounds in her first year. She experienced digestive relief and felt so much better. 

    Tish’s advice: “Always be teachable. You may need to change or shift things over time. Stay connected to the community. Be consistent.”

    Terry was overweight beginning as a young child. For years, he would follow the latest diet and lose weight but then gain it back. By the summer of 2020, Terry found himself at 271 pounds. When both his father and brother were diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, Terry knew it was time to do something about his weight and health. Terry was also prediabetic and ready for his life to change.

    In researching a way to lose weight, Terry found The Obesity Code and later, Fast Feast Repeat. He began with a 16:8 protocol and IF immediately felt easy to him.

    Terry has lost more than 50 pounds. He is no longer prediabetic, his blood pressure has normalized, his allergies and heartburn are both gone, and food no longer controls him. 

    Terry’s advice: “Figure out the fasting first, before changing what you’re eating. Persistence is key!”

    Kim struggled with her weight from an early age and was put on countless diets, beginning as a teenager. Kim’s traumatic childhood led to eating disorders in her adult life. She struggled with both anorexia and bulimia. 

    In 2003, Kim was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Years of weight gain and loss would follow, and by 2020, she reached her highest weight of 196 pounds. 

    Kim found Gin and IF through a naturopathic doctor. Kim was desperate to do something about her health, weight, and wellbeing. She began her IF journey with a 19:5 protocol. Kim has lost more than 40 pounds, healed her relationship with food, and feels great! 

    Kim’s advice: “IF is not a diet; it’s simply timing. Everyone’s IF journey will be different. Read Fast Feast Repeat.”
