Episode 343: Rose AJ Coates

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Rose AJ Coates from Tacoma, WA.

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

Rose is an adventurer and lifelong learner. Childhood abuse affected her relationship with food, as she ate to cope with the pain she endured. To lose weight, she followed diets, took diet pills, and binged with restriction for many years.

By June of 2018, she hit rock bottom. She researched a new way to lose weight and found IF. She began to fast, but not clean. She then found Delay, Don’t Deny in December of 2019 and switched to the clean fast. IF became easy!

Rose has lost 68 pounds. She has learned to listen to her inner voice, her mood has balanced, she has energy, and feels a sense of balance in her life.

Rose’s advice: IF works for everyone; find out how it works for you. IF frees up time and energy. Don’t give up!
