    Episode 212 Erika Barnhart -Finding freedom through fasting losing an incredible 39 Kg (87 pounds) in ten months.

    Episode 212 Erika Barnhart -Finding freedom through fasting losing an incredible 39 Kg (87 pounds) in ten months.

    Erika Barnhart is a 43-year-old salon consultant who resides in Pennsylvania with her husband and three dogs. She had been struggling with weight issues since childhood and was overweight throughout most of her life. Over many years she has tried
    numerous diets since the age of 12, but her success was only temporary. Erika has always been fond of eating various foods, but she also enjoys eating in large quantities and feeling full. At the age of 13, she was diagnosed with high cholesterol and triglycerides but was never prescribed any medication. Then in
    early 2023, she realized that she was procrastinating on scheduling her annual physical because she knew that the doctor would become more persistent about beginning a series of statin medication due to her high cholesterol. She also suffered from sleep apnea, used a CPAP machine, and had been experiencing plantar fasciitis in her right foot, causing her to limp. She felt unnaturally old, defeated, and unhealthy for her age. She
    was ready to make a change. She began looking for a sustainable and cost-effective plan to become healthier. As well as not wanting to take any medications unless necessary.  

     

    Erika’s work involves a hybrid environment, including working from home, local, and overnight travel. She attends many business luncheons and events, so finding something to fit into her ever-changing routine is essential.

     

    In March 2023, Erika finally discovered the freedom she had been seeking through fasting, and within about ten months, she lost 87 pounds (39.5kg). Erika achieved this by practising various fasts and focusing on nourishing foods. She appreciates the flexibility of fasting and incorporates it into her routine frequently. She has tried several fasts, such as Intermittent Fasting, Alternate Day Fasting (ADF), and Modified Alternate.
    Day Fasting (MADF), and One Meal a Day (OMAD). Also, she occasionally includes 48-60-hour fasts. Fasting has helped Erika gain more clarity, perspective, and patience, and the best part is that fasting doesn't cost anything! The flexibility has also made it easy to work into her ever-changing schedule. She's also excited to incorporate some yoga and weight training as soon as she begins working towards achieving her goal body. She’s also looking forward to hiking with her dogs once the weather improves in the spring.

    Episode 211 Gretchen Bates A former athlete transforms her life living an intermittent fasting lifestyle

    Episode 211 Gretchen Bates A former athlete transforms her life living an intermittent fasting lifestyle

    Growing up in rural Tennessee, Gretchen Bates was always very active. She spent long summer days in her childhood exploring the woods, swimming in creeks, and playing with friends.  As a teenager and young adult, Gretchen was competitive in
    sports and was an avid cyclist, kayaker, open-water swimmer and triathlete. By her early 30s, she had completed her first full-length Ironman competition, logged over 15,000 miles on her bike, and finished three separate, fully independent bicycle tours.  At 5’6” tall (167 CM) and 160 pounds (73 kg), she was a healthy, athletically built woman. By her late 30s, Gretchen left her physically active career to return to school for her Masters Degree.  She started a new career after graduation, leading to
    long hours behind a desk. The new stationary career and her naturally slowing metabolism started to take its toll.  By her 40th birthday, Gretchen weighed 185 pounds (84 kg). To control her weight, she spent several years experimenting with low-calorie and fad diets. Nothing seemed to work.

    At 44 years old, Gretchen’s weight ballooned again when her mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. Gretchen became her primary caregiver, took on the management of her mother’s small business, and was responsible for her mother’s personal and health affairs, all while juggling her career. The weight of being a full-time caregiver left Gretchen physically and emotionally exhausted.  Like many caregivers, she was chronically stressed and started suffering from depression. Simultaneously, the Covid pandemic swept through North America, her mother’s condition worsened, and by 46 years old, Gretchen had reached her all-time highest weight of 220 pounds (100 kg).  A sudden health scare forced Gretchen to take a hard look at her lifestyle and to make drastic changes to reclaim her health. After 15 months
    of Intermittent Fasting, Gretchen reached her goal weight range of 140-150 pounds (63-68 kg). She continues to try new fasting protocols and works to strengthen her fasting muscles by practising TRE, mindful eating, and avoiding sugar and processed foods. She fully embraces her new fasting
    lifestyle and strives for optimal health.

    Episode 210 Joe Bernardo -A registered nurse living an intermittent lifestyle that has changed his life.

    Episode 210 Joe Bernardo -A registered nurse living an intermittent lifestyle that has changed his life.

    By Joe Bernardo RN.

    My wife and I are Registered Nurses by profession.  Despite knowing how to “eat healthy” and what the guidelines recommend, I found myself to be in the worst health and shape about a year and three months ago.  I was 42 years old, and my BMI breached 30; I had RA, sciatic issues, and undiagnosed sleep apnea. I was also getting short of breath with minimal activity.  I also found out, later in my journey, that I had been pre-diabetic and possibly diabetic.  This did not surprise me as I was addicted to sodas, often drinking 6-8 glasses with dinner!  Unfortunately, I did not have any baseline labs drawn before fasting and keto, and I was already 5-6 months into it when I had my A1C completed. 

    Fasting has changed our lives as all of my chronic and acute issues are now gone!  I live out a baseline 18:6 protocol with extended water fasts of 36 hours and beyond bi
    weekly!

Bigfamily!! ,

Learning so much!

In just 2 episodes of this podcast I learned the 2 obstacles sabotaging my attempts at IF over the last few years of trying dirty fasting. 1 : the clean fast! Game changer!
2: eating OMAD with a restaurant mentality not stuffing my face in 15 minutes with one plate of food!
I’ve been clean fasting for 2 weeks now and opening my eating window earlier than I was before and easing into my feast. It has made a world of difference in my mood, my energy levels, my cravings, my brain fog and hunger. My hunger is gentle and comes in waves and I no longer want to throw plates if someone in our large family causes our dinner to start 5 minutes late! I can be around food, preparing food without wanting to inhale it all. I have more patience and peace being around food.
I love listening to Graeme speak , he’s so nice and pleasant and he has great guests.
So if you’re like me and have been trying the fasting lifestyle but just couldn’t get it to stick please listen to Graeme. Fast clean and feast slowly and ENJOY!!!
Thank you Graeme!

Motivation , empathy , kindness

Good for those interested in other peoples experience with IF. More for motivation than new info though .

Go listen to the earlier episodes Those are super interesting , more varied in focus and informative .

Newer ones are still can be a bit tedious and formulaic They start with a too long section of free form backstory /life story from the guests - some of whom have better story telling skills than others.

Basically it always goes “ I was born, , I got fat when I get married/had kids , I heard about IF from a friend or I found Jason Fung. But it wasn't until I found Gin Stephens and clean fasting and gave up cream in my cofee that I found salvation .

The episode descriptions are very good though. so you can find episodes that sound good to you. And Graeme is always sincere, kind , honest and upbeat.

Martin Sher ,

Enjoy this podcast

I have listened to all of the podcasts. Educational and inspiring.
