Episode 227: Caren Levine

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Caren Levine from Mansfield, MA.

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

Caren is a retired healthcare worker. She shares that her parents were always on a diet, which created a dysfunctional relationship with food and weight for her. It also led her down a path of countless diets, diet pills, diet programs, and eventually Caren had bariatric surgery.

In January of 2020, a friend told Caren about intermittent fasting and Delay, Don’t Deny. Caren immediately read the book and began her IF journey the very next day!

Caren has lost 40 pounds and loves the “ultimate freedom” of this lifestyle.

Caren’s advice: “Take it day by day. You can start now.”
