Episode 259: Kristy Schemrich

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Kristy Schemrich from Shreve, OH.

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

Kristy is in the process of becoming a health coach. She did not struggle with her weight until she began to have children. With each pregnancy, she would gain a size.

In 2017, her son was diagnosed with a mental illness that caused him to move home. Dexter’s depression and paranoia were debilitating, and he took his own life in 2021. In her overwhelming grief, Kristy found herself eating for comfort.

Kristy’s weight climbed, and she found herself at her highest weight of 162 pounds. She learned about IF from a friend on Facebook who shared Delay, Don’t Deny. Kristy began her IF journey in May of 2021 with a 16:8 protocol.

Kristy has lost 31 pounds and will live the IF lifestyle forever. She decided to become a health coach to help others with IF and nutrition.
