Episode 278: Rebecca

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Rebecca from Newberryport, MA.

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

Rebecca is a math professor. She struggled with an eating disorder as a teenager, but was able to recover from it.

Once married and having children, Rebecca focused on her husband and children, neglecting herself. Her weight began to climb, she once again struggled with her eating disorder, and she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.

When she stepped onto the scale in 2017, she had gained more than 20 pounds. Her husband found IF, and then Rebecca began her IF journey. She also began therapy to heal her body image and eating disorder, and to learn to love herself again.

Rebecca has lost more than 20 pounds, has discovered confidence in herself, and now feels she’s living her very best life.

Rebecca’s advice: “Be kind to yourself. Love the person you are now, not the person you want to be.”
