Episode 253: Valeria

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Valeria from Italy.

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

Valeria is a stay-at-home-mom. She was put on her first diet at ten years-old, which began a lifetime of diets. By February of 2021, Valeria had reached her highest weight of 209 pounds.

Desperate to lose weight without dieting, she talked to a friend, who shared IF and Delay, Don’t Deny.  Valeria began her IF journey immediately. She has lost 35 pounds and four inches off her waist! Valeria finds that an afternoon window works best, as lunch is their main meal in Italy. She has energy, confidence, and no longer hates her body.

Valeria’s advice: “The scale is not the only tool we have, and read about that in Fast Feast Repeat. Be patient. Do IF for your health!”
