Jackie is a stay-at-home-mom from Kalamazoo, Michigan. Jackie shares that she struggled with her weight after having children, and she would follow Weight Watchers or Diet Bet to lose the weight.

Jackie learned of IF through her church, where they did a yearly fast as a congregation. Then a friend told her about Fast Feast Repeat.

During early days of the pandemic, “all we did was cook and bake,” she remarks. Jackie began her IF journey in the Summer of 2020. She began with 18:6, and gradually moved to 20-22 hour fasts.

Intermittent fasting took away the guilt she felt and allowed her to enjoy the foods she loved. Jackie has lost 30 pounds, sleeps better, has more energy, and feels mentally and emotionally balanced.

Jackie’s advice to the new IFer: “Don’t feel that you have to change everything all at once. Start small. Increase your fasts gradually. Do one healthy habit at a time!”
