Episode 229: Lucie Fischer

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Lucie Fisher, who lives in the Bronx, NY. Lucie is a type 1 diabetic and host of The Fast Life with Diabetes Podcast, and she explains how intermittent fasting has helped her manage her blood glucose levels and lose weight.

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.

Lucie shares that a naturopath recommended a keto diet to maintain her blood sugar numbers, but her body did not feel great with this way of eating. Frustrated, Lucie would try other diets, lose ten pounds, then gain it back.

In 2019, she learned of intermittent fasting from a friend, but not about the clean fast. This made IF hard! Then in 2021, Lucie came across an interview Gin gave about the clean fast. This changed Lucie’s IF journey. She has lost 30 pounds, and her A1C number has come down.

Lucie’s advice: “IF is possible with Type 1 Diabetes! Give it time. Your body will adjust. Talk to your doctor about adjusting your meds.”
