In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Jen Tiemann, a teacher from Linden, MI.

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

During the pandemic of 2020, Jen was instructing PE from home. She felt stressed, depressed, and found herself turning to food for comfort.

By the time Jen’s school returned to in-person learning in January of 2021, she stepped on the scale. She had reached her highest weight of 174 pounds, and knew she must do something.

A co-worker shared, Delay, Don’t Deny, and Jen read it in a matter of hours. She went on to read Fast Feast Repeat and understood the science behind IF. She has lost 46 pounds, and enjoys the immense energy and mental clarity IF has brought.

Jen’s advice: “Have a plan. Track your journey and your progress. Take before pictures throughout your journey.”
