In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Janine Thompson, a teacher from South Jordan, UT.

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

Janine did not struggle with her weight until she turned forty, when the diet roller coaster began. A friend told her about intermittent fasting, but fasting was something Janine did only one Sunday a month. And, it was hard! However, her friend seemed to be “shrinking,” so she decided to give IF a try.

After a year of the IF lifestyle, Janine went from 148 pounds to around 120 pounds. She follows OMAD (One Meal a Day), and finds maintaining her weight effortless.

Janine advice: “Diets are complicated. IF is simple. Don’t compare yourself to others. IF is an individual journey in finding out what works for you.”
