Season 1

Episode 142: Beth Wray

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Beth Wray of Sammamish, WA.

Let me tell you about the Delay, Don’t Deny Social Network! Besides the freedom of IF, community is what I most want to offer the world. Instead of relying on the big social network most of us have been on for years, we now have a community that is completely separate and just for us.

Members of the DDD Social Network have access to all episodes of Intermittent Fasting Stories within the DDDSN platform, ad-free!  That’s just one reason to join.

Visit  to see what else we offer in our membership community. An annual membership is $59.95 and you have access to dozens of groups that we created with you in mind.  You can join as many groups as you want and connect with members who share your interests.  If you aren’t ready to fully commit for a year, join for $9.99 a month and you can cancel at any time. If you know you’ll want to stay forever, we also have a lifetime membership option available.

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

Beth is a moderator in the Delay, Don’t Deny Facebook group, and is currently attending school to become a health coach.

Beth struggled with her weight after having her now-grown children. She yo-yo dieted for many years, counting calories, trying various diets, and maintaining a vigorous exercise routine. She would lose weight easily, but could never maintain the loss.

By July of 2019, Beth was about to give up. Discouraged, she heard about intermittent fasting from a friend. At first, Beth thought it sounded crazy, but she decided to give it a shot. She eased her way into IF, and never had a set window. Varying her fasts has made IF feel like a flexible lifestyle. Beth has lost 35 pounds, and easily maintains within a comfortable weight range.  Her relationship with food has completely changed. She no longer obsessed with food, and it no longer controls her.

Beth’s advice for new IFers: “While you want to be consistent overall, it’s okay to switch things up. You don’t have to have the same schedule every day, because this is a lifestyle.”
