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

Leslie was thin well into her thirties and even after having kids, but several stressful life events caused tremendous weight gain.

In January of 2020, Leslie found herself at 180 pounds and prediabetic. She had heard of IF and decided to research its health benefits. Leslie read Fast Feast Repeat and The Diabetes Code, and dove into her IF journey. She was ready to change the course of her life!

After switching to Alternate Day Fasting, (ADF) the weight quickly came off, normalizing Leslie’s A1C numbers. She has lost almost 50 pounds and feels amazing.

Leslie decided to write about the incredible health benefits that IF brings to share the message with others.

Leslie’s advice: “You can change! You can fast! Know and understand why IF works!”
