Season 1

Episode 167: David Mangene

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to author, teacher, and comedian David Mangene.

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.

David learned of IF from his girlfriend, and he researched how it might help his bipolar depression.

David’s goals were the health benefits IF might bring, and not necessarily the weight loss. He began IF in the Summer of 2020, and a year later, his depression has drastically improved. He’s also lost 30 pounds!

David’s advice: If you think you can do it, you definitely can. IF is easier than you think. Our bodies were built to eat this way.

David also wrote a book, How Not to Kill Yourself; Ten Tips for Troubled Times. He wrote it to bring hope for those who struggle with depression, and the ones who love them. It is available on Kindle through Amazon.
