Episode 340: Karen Cahill

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Karen Cahill who lives outside of Atlanta, GA.

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

Karen works in digital marketing.  She was overweight all her life but never dieted. In the fall of 2020, her weight climbed past 300 pounds and she felt miserable.

In April of 2021, Karen came across IF by reading a Facebook post. She read both of Gin’s books, Delay, Don’t Deny and Fast Feast Repeat, and began her IF journey.

Karen has lost 135 pounds! She reversed both her high blood pressure and fatty liver, her skin has improved and she no longer struggles with arthritis and kidney stones. Karen enjoys the routine and flexibility that IF has brought to her life.

Karen’s advice: Do the 28 Day FAST Start. Take pictures, take measurements, and stay off the scale. Trust the process! It will be different for everyone.
