Ann did not struggle with her weight until high school, when she gained twenty pounds. This extra weight carried her into her adult life and the diet cycle began. Ann tried diet pills, programs, and calorie counting, which lead to losing and gaining time and again.

In May of 2022, Ann stumbled upon Gin’s books, Delay, Don’t Deny and Fast Feast Repeat. She began her IF journey right away and knew it would be her new lifestyle. Ann lost more than thirty pounds, sleeps well, has loads of energy, and effortlessly maintains her weight.

Ann’s advice: “Don’t let what you already know get in the way of what you can learn. Do the mindset work. Habit is stronger than reason. Clean fast only!”
