Episode 381: Allyson Bishop

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Allyson Bishop from Roanoke, VA.

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

Allyson is a homeschool mom. She grew up in a family focused on health & fitness, and never felt she had the ideal shape. When she put on weight in college, Allyson began years of dieting. And after raising her children, Allyson found herself at 213 pounds.

In August of 2021, Allyson wondered why she could not stop gaining weight and found the book, The Obesity Code. Soon after, Allyson discovered Fast Feast Repeat and finally understood the science behind the clean fast. She has lost more than 30 pounds and feels like a different person. Allyson listens to her body and loves the energy IF has brought her.

Allyson’s advice: Read Fast Feast Repeat multiple times, fast clean, and eat what nourishes you first. The longer you practice fasting, the easier it gets.
