In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Mary Louise Evans and Alyssa Potkovac, a mother and daughter from Easton, PA.

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

Alyssa dieted her whole life. Once she was engaged to be married, she decided to lose weight in order to fit into her grandmother’s wedding dress. A co-worker shared intermittent fasting with her, and Alyssa knew IF was the answer.

Alyssa shared IF with her mother, who had gastric sleeve surgery in 2017 and was beginning to gain weight again.

Alyssa and Mary Louise began their IF journey together in November of 2018.

Alyssa has lost 150 pounds and Mary Louise has lost 65 pounds! They are now more active and have sustained energy throughout the day. Alyssa is expecting a baby, and credits IF for the ease of conception.

Alyssa’s advice: “Clean fast! Be willing to see food differently.”

Mary Louise’s advice: “Trust the process. Believe you can do it!”
