Episode 219: Jamie

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Jamie, a pediatric nurse and mom of 3 from Hinesburg, VT.

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

Jamie began to struggle with her weight at age ten, and spent countless years on diets.

During the pandemic of 2020, Jamie reached her highest weight of 215 pounds. Feeling defeated, she gave up.

In June of that same year, a co-worker shared intermittent fasting and Delay, Don’t Deny with Jamie, and she immediately began her IF journey. In less than a year, Jamie lost 50 pounds. She sleeps better, has improved digestion, and her skin is radiant. Jamie feels that IF is a peaceful way of living.

Jamie’s advice: “Be flexible. Listen to your body. Trust the process. Our bodies are all different, so what works for one does not always work for another.”
