Episode 256: Lyn Huston

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Lyn Huston. Lyn is a repeat guest who first told her story in November of 2018 on episode 2, and she returns to share some important lessons she has learned over her 4 years of maintenance.

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.

Lyn found Intermittent Fasting in 2016, when her teaching assistant challenged her to give it a try. Lyn was almost 250 pounds and diabetic, and knew she needed to do something. In her first year, she dropped an astounding 88 pounds and became more active.

Because of the changes she has made, Lyn is no longer diabetic and has alleviated the back and joint pain associated with her weight.  That doesn’t mean the path has been without bumps along the way, however. Gin and Lyn discuss how life’s challenges may affect our long-term IF journey, and how IF continues to make a positive impact despite life’s stresses and stages.

Lyn’s advice: “It’s ok to take your time with IF and move slow. Be patient, keep at it, and realize this is a lifestyle.”
