Episode 308: Loc An

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Loc An from Toronto, Canada.

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

Loc is a project manager. He struggled with his weight and body image for decades and turned to food for comfort. He tried many diets, and each time he would lose weight, then gain the weight back.

In 2017, a friend shared a Dr. Fung video on IF with him, and it resonated with him. He immediately began his IF journey. Once reaching his goal weight, Loc became inconsistent with IF. But a gout diagnosis sent him back to IF with a renewed sense of purpose.

For the last two years, Loc has been healing his body, his relationship with food, and the diet mindset that controlled him. He has not only lost weight, but his painful gout symptoms have disappeared. Loc feels he is now his ‘best self” and will always live the IF lifestyle.

Loc’s advice: “Begin with your why. What is the life you want to build? This will help you to keep going. Start small. Start with where you feel comfortable and do it consistently for three weeks. IF will get easier!
