    Episode 151 Netta Gorman- Discovering the real sweetness in your life. We talk all things sugar and overcoming issues with sugar.

    Netta was desperate to overcome her debilitating health issues. She struggled with chronic constipation, headaches, achy joints, uncomfortable extra pounds, energy slumps, anxiety, mood swings, and more. By the age of 45, she’d tried everything… except for one solution! Cut sugar. But she resisted it – until she realized that “nothing changes if nothing changes”. It started as a temporary 2-week experiment to cut sugar, flour and sweeteners in July 2015. And to her amazement, Netta started feeling so much more energetic and vitalized that she carried on… and it’s been 7 years and counting! Now Netta shares her voyage of self-discovery that transformed her relationship with sugar and her need for comfort foods. Netta is also the creator of the 12-week Life After Sugar Program, which empowers people who are open-minded and slightly rebellious to let go of sugar for good. She also offers a safe, private community that provides support and accountability in the After Sugar Club membership. Her passion is to guide people who struggle with cravings and mindless eating, so that they can learn to let go of sugar, gain energy and confidence, and make their intermittent fasting lifestyle easy and natural.

    Episode 149- Ava Brodie, a catch-up episode with Ava who was last on the podcast in episode 57. A journey of health and age reversal living an IF lifestyle.

    By Ava Brodie

    I’m married to Terry he is so lovely and supportive, we met late in life, we have a golden doodle dog he is a cutie, and we live in the United Kingdom.

    I was a very skinny child eating whatever I like especially sugary stuff and this addiction continued into my adult life.

    When I reached my 30s my weight started to become an issue, I remember walking into my first weight watchers' group, I spent the next 25 years in and out of slimming clubs. I’ve spent a small fortune trying to control my weight without any success! I’d lose the weight but before I knew it, it was back again and a lot more.

    I’ve always loved exercising, especially walking and using weights.

    2016 I came across Jason Fung and I was fascinated by IF loved the science behind it and read the Obesity Code.

    I then found Gin Stephens DDD and started fasting, I was really enjoying this way of eating and thought that in my window I could eat whatever I wanted but realised that I couldn’t, so I spent quite a long time trying different fasting protocols, also I wasn’t clean fasting so really didn’t have much success.

    Through Gins books I came across Graeme Currie who wrote The Fasting Highway, reading his story really resonated with me, I think I nodded through most of his inspiring story, I got excited and thought if this man can get through all of his struggles, lose 132lbs in 14 months then I was certain that I could finally get a grip on my weight once and for all and lose my excess weight.

    As soon as I started clean fasting, I felt different, previously I’d stuck to 16.8 or 18.6 so I upped it to 23.1 and my weight started to come off, my NSVs were fantastic!. I gave up sugar in 2020 and have not looked back.

    Episode 147 Cara Straughn losing 97 pounds (44 Kg) in two years living an intermittent fasting lifestyle. Improving PCOS symptoms and finding renewed health.

    Episode 147 Cara Straughn losing 97 pounds (44 Kg) in two years living an intermittent fasting lifestyle. Improving PCOS symptoms and finding renewed health.

    Cara Straughn lives in southwestern Missouri, USA. She is a 39-year-old mom of 3 and has been married to her loving husband, Mike, for 17 years. Cara has struggled with her weight ever since junior high. She learned at the young age of 17 that she had developed PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) and struggled with the emotional and physical issues that come along with that over the next 2 decades. Over that time, she tried so many different ways to lose weight, all working in the short term, but too expensive and difficult to stick with in the long term, so the weight always came back on with a vengeance. By her mid to late 20’s she had reached her highest recorded weight of 261 pounds. She would go on to try more ways to lose weight, getting down to 165 pounds at one point, but got tired of tracking and counting and struggling, so she eventually gave up and found herself back up to 250 pounds. After struggling for years with infertility, she and her husband decided to become foster parents. They welcomed 2 boys into their home in 2017 and was able to adopt them in 2018. That same year she tried to lose weight again, first doing weight watchers, then seeking the help of a weight loss doctor, who would prescribe her appetite suppressants and tell her to eat just once a day. She dropped 65 pounds in 10 months and then suddenly found herself pregnant! Over the next 9 months she would go on to gain 70 pounds during her pregnancy! Over a year later, she was at 245 pounds and decided it was time to crack down and lose weight again. In October 2020, she discovered intermittent fasting, and she finally found something that not only worked, but was easy to stick with for the long term. After losing 97 pounds over the last 2 years, she has just switched over to maintenance and is looking forward to a long, healthy, and active life with her husband and children.

    Episode 146 Rindi and Kevin Trainer, a couple who fast together that have had spectacular results. A combined weight loss of 68 Kg (150 pounds) in 11 months.

    Episode 146 Rindi and Kevin Trainer, a couple who fast together that have had spectacular results. A combined weight loss of 68 Kg (150 pounds) in 11 months.

    Kevin and Rindi Trainer have been married for almost 37 years and live in the great state of Texas in the United States. They have raised two children who are now adults, and they became grandparents in August of 2022 to a sweet baby boy.

    To back up a bit, in March of 2020. Rindi went for her yearly physical and was not completely surprised to find out she was pre-diabetic. Her weight was up, blood pressure was up, she just knew she wasn’t in a good, healthy place. Family history of losing her mom and maternal grandmother to diabetes in their 50s motivated her to start researching changes. That led her down the Keto/Low Carb rabbit trail, but she decided Keto was too restrictive and low carb was going to be challenging enough. Nothing really changed until after a July 2020 vacation to South Dakota and looking at the pictures reminded her that she really needed to make a change. In August 2020, Rindi shared with her husband, Kevin, that she was going to be making some changes and he could join her in the journey or not. They had both tried and lost weight on Weight Watchers before and calorie counting, and Kevin had even done an all-liquid diet at one time. He lost weight but gained it back when he started eating food again. Kevin has struggled with weight issues since he was about 13 years old, and in 2020 he was 59 years old at that time. Their health journey initially started with just a low carb diet, cutting out things like bread, chips, tortillas, sugary things, but quickly introduced intermittent fasting. Initially, they worked on keeping total carbs below 100 grams per day and fasting 12-14 hours per day. A few months in and they had lowered total carbs to about 50 per day and were regularly fasting about 16 hours per day. Unfortunately, they had not heard about clean fasting yet, so they were definitely not doing that. Between August of 2020 and July of 2021, they lost a combined total of about 150 pounds. Rindi losing 40 and Kevin losing 110. From July 2021 to present, they haven’t lost any more weight, but their bodies continue to experience recomposition and their clothing sizes have changed without any weight loss happening. They are more active and have more energy now than they did ten years ago. Fasting is definitely the plan for the rest of their lives and Rindi is no longer pre-diabetic.

Inspiring

Graeme just comes across as a guy I could sit down and have a beer (or black coffee) with. He’s so genuine and down to earth. I love how he allows his guests to talk without having to interrupt every few seconds like so many other interviewers. I have listened to almost every episode over the last year. Now it’s time to implement my knowledge and maybe in a year I’ll be a guest on this podcast.

tomfarrelly33 ,

One of the best intermittent fasting podcasts

I have such an appreciation for Graeme Curry and all his guests. He is a real gentleman and has such a kind way about him, mixed with humor. He provides so much knowledge, his own journey, and draws out his guests so we can all benefit. There’s a real sense of camaraderie. His Facebook page which goes along with the podcast is a lovely family where I’ve received so much support and knowledge. I’ve lost stubborn weight and made so many positive changes in my health thanks to the support and knowledge I’ve gained through this wonderful podcast.
