Episode 207: Kim

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Kim, a physician’s assistant from Indiana.

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.

Visit to join us. An annual membership costs just over a dollar a week when you do the math. If you aren’t ready to fully commit for a year, join for a month and you can cancel at any time. If you know you’ll want to stay forever, we also have a lifetime membership option available.

IF is free. You don’t need to join our community to fast. But if you’re looking for support from a community of like-minded IFers, we are here for you at

Kim shares that she was slim for most of her adult life, but slowly and steadily gained weight over the course of several decades.

When the pandemic hit in March of 2020, Kim worked from home and found herself eating more. By that summer, she did not feel good in her own skin. Kim searched for a way to lose weight and stumbled upon intermittent fasting. She also found Gin’s IF Stories podcast.

Kim suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, which is a chronic and painful inflammatory disorder that affects the joints. She has noticed both a reduction of inflammation and joint pain. Her esophageal reflux is gone, she has mental clarity, energy, and enjoys the IF lifestyle immensely.

Kim’s advice: “Be consistent, fast everyday, be flexible and forgiving. Be patient. It gets easier.”
