Season 1

Episode 166: Katie Argall

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Katie Argall, a high school teacher and basketball coach from Atlanta, GA.

Gin’s new book Clean(ish) is available for preorder!  Gin wants to show you how to become clean(ish) where it counts:  you’ll learn how to eat (mostly) clean and live (mainly) clean as you unlock your body’s natural ability to self-clean.

Instead of aiming for perfection (which is impossible) or changing everything at once (which is hard, and never leads to lasting change)you’ll cut through the confusion, lose the fear, and embrace the freedom that comes from becoming clean(ish).  As you learn how to lower your toxic load through small changes, smart swaps, and simple solutions, you’ll breathe a (clean) sigh of relief and embrace your own personal evolution toward becoming clean(ish).

Go to for more information.  The book will be released on 1/4/22, but you can preorder now through Amazon or your favorite online book retailer.  Preordering is really important, as it gives the publisher an idea of how many books to print.

Katie was always the tallest and biggest of her friends, which made her stand out. She played basketball in high school and college but injured her back, and eventually needed surgery. This affected her activity level, which caused weight gain. This also began Katie’s cycle of dieting.

In 2019, Katie learned about IF from her principal. She began with a 16:8 protocol, but quickly moved to 20:4. She has lost 40 pounds.

Katie has experienced clearer skin, a major reduction of inflammation, and less back pain.

She is in the process of healing diet mentality, and she loves how IF has freed her from the constant worry about food.
Katie’s advice: Use an app to track your fasts. Everything is a choice. Whatever you choose, it will have results either today or a year from now.
