Episode 254: Stacy Johnson

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Stacy Johnson from Aurora, OR.

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

Stacy is a purchasing manager. She struggled with her weight from the time she was a child, and was put on her first diet in middle school. This led to decades of fad diets, tracking, and calorie restriction. Stacy would lose the weight but always gain it back.

Stacy’s health began to suffer as her weight climbed. She was diagnosed with diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, and she felt terrible. Her weight had reached an all-time high of 250 pounds.

Stacy began her official clean fast IF journey in December of 2020. She immediately felt better, and knew IF was the answer! Stacy has lost more than fifty pounds, but focuses on her health more than a number on the scale. Her relationship with food has healed, and she is happy and healthy!

Stacy’s advice: “Live your life and your journey. Let the IF lifestyle develop. If you haven’t taken “before” pictures, take “right now” ones. Give yourself grace.”
