Episode 349: Megan O’Rourke

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Megan O’Rourke from Meridian, ID.

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

Megan is a communications director. She did not struggle with her weight until after having kids. When her (now) ex-husband made hurtful comments about her weight, Megan felt self-conscious and began to diet.

In November of 2020, a co-worker shared IF and Fast Feast Repeat with her. Megan began her IF journey and felt the guilt she carried about food disappeared overnight. Megan immediately felt the freedom to enjoy food.

Megan has lost 30 pounds. Her headaches are gone, both her skin and sleep have improved, and she is no longer fighting her body.

Megan’s advice: Don’t make any changes you’re not willing to commit to forever. Focus on your window. Wear clothes that make you feel good about yourself. Do spiritual and internal work on your IF journey.
