Episode 152: Elaine Heyworth

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Elaine Heyworth from Essex, UK.

Are you looking for intermittent fasting support in a cozy community that celebrates the clean fast?  Join us on the Delay, Don’t Deny Social Network!  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, with a variety of groups you can join for the support and community you need.

You can connect directly with Gin in the Ask Gin group, and she’ll answer all of your questions personally.  If you’re new to intermittent fasting or recommitting to the IF lifestyle, join the 28-Day FAST Start group, and both Gin and the other group members will walk virtually beside you each day of your FAST Start.

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

Visit  to join our membership community. An annual membership is $59.95.  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

Elaine struggled with her weight her entire life. She followed various diets, but the weight she’d lose always returned.

Finally, Elaine found Delay, Don’t Deny, immediately ordered it, and read it quickly. “Gin spoke to me,” Elaine exclaimed.

In September of 2019, she began with 16:8 and gradually moved to 19:5. Elaine has lost 56 pounds, going from 221 to 165. She has mental clarity and feels so much better!

Elaine’s advice: “Comparison is the thief of joy. Don’t compare yourself to other people. Give support to others. Find a local group!”
