Season 1

Episode 168: Abby Stadlin

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Abby Stadlin from Cleveland, OH.

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.

Abby is the owner of an Ace Hardware. Abby was a lifetime dieter, trying every new diet that came along: from low calorie to low carb, and everything in between. The diet would work, but then Abby would gain back all of the weight she lost.

By 2017, Abby reached her highest weight and decided to give up. She thought, “I’m done fighting. I’m just a large girl.” But Abby was still unhappy with her weight, and worried about her health.

In 2019, she overheard a group of ladies discussing IF. Abby researched ‘intermittent fasting,’ and found both Delay, Don’t Deny, and The Obesity Code. She also joined the DDD Facebook group. Abby began with 16:8, quickly moving to 23:1 within weeks. She has gone from 225 pounds to 182 pounds, which is the smallest she has ever been!

Abby’s advice to new IFers: “Look to the science behind IF. Join the IF support groups. Listen to the IF podcasts.”
