Episode 277: Michelle Montone

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Michelle Montone from Orlando, FL.

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

Michelle is an IF Coach. She also has a podcast called Fast and Fabulous.

Michelle began to diet as a teenager. She tried calorie counting, tracking macros, and exercising.

Then with each pregnancy, her weight crept higher. By January of 2020, Michelle reached her highest weight of over 200 pounds and was desperate to lose weight.

Michelle found IF by overhearing a conversation at her hair salon. She found Gin’s book, Delay, Don’t Deny, and began her IF journey. Michelle has lost more than forty pounds, has tons of energy, and loads of confidence. Her relationship with food has been healed and she is free from diet mentality.

Michelle’s advice: “Don’t change anything at first! The magic is on the other side. Make IF your lifestyle.”
