In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Jordan Jenkins, a law student from Goleta, CA.

Are you ready to take your intermittent fasting lifestyle to the next level? There’s nothing better than community to help with that. In the Delay, Don’t Deny community we all embrace the clean fast, and there’s just the right support for you as you live your intermittent fasting lifestyle.

You can connect directly with Gin in the Ask Gin group, and she will 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. After your fast start, join us for support in The 1st Year group. Need tips for long term maintenance? We have a place for that! There are many more useful spaces beyond these, and you can interact in as many as you like.

Prior to IF, Jordan did not struggle with her weight. She shares that while living in Ecuador, she contracted parasites. The parasites caused a long battle with weight loss, rashes and digestive distress. This would eventually lead her to the IF lifestyle.

Jordan heard of IF from a family friend, Laurie Lewis (IF Stories podcast Episodes 4 & 115) and dismissed it. But after Jordan saw a Naturopath who recommended IF, Jordan decided to give it a try. She officially began her journey in January of 2019 with 16:8, and has kept this protocol. Jordan’s focus is health, and she feels great: she sleeps better, has incredible mental clarity, and those parasites are gone!

Jordan’s advice to the new IFer: “Tweak it until it’s easy. Find what works, and it will be different for each of us. IF is not just for weight loss; you can do it for health too!
