Episode 230: David Honeyman

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to David Honeyman from Newbury in the UK.

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

David works in IT Development. He shares that he never dieted prior to intermittent fasting, but he did struggle with his weight. While on a business trip to Vienna in 2015, he looked in the mirror and realized it was time to do something about it. A fellow colleague casually mentioned IF and The 5:2 Diet by Dr. Michael Mosley.

This helped David to lose 22 pounds, but he began to dislike this IF approach. David gave up, and eventually gained the weight back.

Discouraged, he found Delay, Don’t Deny and Fast Feast Repeat. David switched to OMAD (One Meal A Day) and lost all the weight he gained, plus more. He has gone from 185 pounds to 139 pounds, and loves the IF lifestyle!

David’s advice: “Don’t fear IF! You’re going to feel great. Tell yourself: ‘Welcome to my new lifestyle!”
