220_Fast, Feast, Repeat: Intermittent Fasting with Gin Stephens

by | Dec 5, 2023

Could intermittent fasting be the key to sustainable weight loss? 

My next guest, elementary school teacher turned best-selling author Gin Stephens thinks so.

In 2014 Gin was obese, felt like crap, and hated the person she saw in the mirror. She had spent years yo-yo dieting only to lose and regain the same weight back, and then some. Desperate to find a solution, she turned to intermittent fasting. Since then Gin has lost more than 80 pounds and kept it off.

In today’s conversation, we take a deep dive into the world of intermittent fasting and all of its physiological benefits. We talk about why intermittent fasting is easier to implement than other types of dieting protocols, the concept of metabolic flexibility, the importance of setting realistic expectations when it comes to fat loss, some of the biggest mistakes people make with intermittent fasting, as well as how to get started on your own intermittent fasting journey.

If any of this information in our conversation resonates with you, then make sure to check out Gin’s books: “Fast, Feast, Repeat,” “Clean(ish)”, “Delay, Don’t Deny,” and her upcoming book “28 Day Fast Start Day-By-Day”. All of the links are in the shownotes below.
