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.

Emily shares that she always had a problem with her weight, beginning as a child. She tried countless diets and calorie counting, but would always gain back the weight.

In August of 2020, doctors found a cancerous nodule on her thyroid. The treatment and surgery left her extremely weak and caused her to gain weight. Calorie counting wasn’t working, and Emily was discouraged. While she was listening to a podcast, intermittent fasting and Delay, Don’t Deny were mentioned. Emily immediately read it, along with Fast Feast Repeat and The Obesity Code.

She began her IF journey in January of 2021, and has lost 20 pounds. Emily feels total freedom with food and rejoices that she’ll never need to diet again!

Emily’s advice: “Follow Gin! Take the time to get fat adapted. You can start slow. It’s not a race.”
