In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Julie (Jules) Levy from Austin, TX.

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.

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

Jules works for a nonprofit ministry. She struggled with high cholesterol for many years, which led her on a health quest. She was put on countless eating plans, consisting of shakes and five meals a day. It was exhausting!

When her doctor then suggested statins for her cholesterol, she declined. Jules knew there had to be another way. Her nutritionist suggested intermittent fasting, and she came across an IF interview with Gin, along with the Intermittent Fasting Stories podcast. She knew IF was the answer!

Two years later, her fasted insulin level  has gone from 6.9 to 4.1, she has lost inflammation, and her clothes fit great.

Her advice: “Look at IF for health, not just weight loss. It will heal your diet mentality.”
