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.

Tawnya is a program specialist. She was overweight from the time she was a young girl. She followed countless diets and by the time she reached her highest weight of 265 pounds, she simply gave up.

At the end of 2021, Tawnya’s health began to suffer. She was prediabetic, she had high blood pressure and sleep apnea, and she suffered from migraines. Feeling miserable, Tawnya decided to take charge of her health. She found Gin, as well as her IF books podcasts through several Google searches.

Tawnya began her IF journey in July of 2022 and has lost almost 100 pounds. All of her health issues have resolved and Tawnya sees how IF was the answer for which had been searching for so many years.

Tawnya’s advice: Hunger should not be feared. You will learn so much about your body by living the IF lifestyle. It will change your relationship with food and with yourself.
