Episode 251: Sarah Harris

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Sarah Harris from Swindon, England.

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

Sarah is both a painter and a data scientist. She struggled with her weight for countless years. She would easily lose weight, but could never keep it off.

Sarah was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018. After a long road of surgery and chemotherapy, Sarah reached her highest weight of 225 pounds. She dieted down to 180 pounds, but could never get any lower.

Then in the Spring of 2020, Sarah learned of IF through her breast cancer support group. She began her IF journey right away, and it changed her life. Sarah has lost 40 pounds and feels vibrant. She is off blood pressure meds, and her scars have totally healed!

Sarah’s advice: “Stick it out for the first eight weeks, and it will get easier as you become fat adapted. The feast is as important as the fast.”
