She started exploring intermittent fasting as a way to find a sustainable solution after having her children. She had experimented with various diets but nothing seemed to provide lasting results. Everything changed when she picked up Gin's book Delay, Don't Deny, prompting her to start her own IF journey on April 19, 2020.Zoraida shares the numerous health benefits she's experienced since starting intermittent fasting. She was pre-diabetic with high insulin levels. Following her IF lifestyle, she's seen improvements in her insulin markers, reduced inflammation, she gained mobility, and even began fitting into her old clothes again. These victories extended beyond the scale, contributing to her overall well-being and confidence.Zoraida discusses the impact her intermittent fasting journey has had on her family. Her children have followed suit in adopting healthier eating habits, and though her son was initially skeptical about fasting, he has become more curious about its benefits. Both Zoraida and Gin highlight the importance of having support from their families as they navigated through their dietary changes.During the episode, we hear about lifestyle shifts and dietary changes like Zoraida transitioning from adding creamer to her coffee to enjoying it black. We also dive into the struggles Gin and Zoraida faced with food, especially processed foods that are engineered to be irresistible. Zoraida admits her challenges with sweets, while Gin speaks about her weakness for cheesy, crunchy snacks. Both emphasize the importance of finding a balance and the power of self-awareness regarding food choices.As the episode concludes, Zoraida offers heartfelt advice for anyone at the beginning of their intermittent fasting path: Give yourself grace and be patient with yourself. Intermittent fasting is a lifestyle, not a quick fix, and it's important to expect and accept changes as part of the process.Get Gin’s books at: http://www.ginstephens.com/get-the-books.html, including her latest bestseller 28-Day Fast Start Day-By-Day, the Ultimate Guide to Starting (or Restarting) Your Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle so it Sticks, New York Times Bestseller, Fast.

She was born with digestive issues, and in her teens, she was diagnosed with IBS and hypothyroidism. This began a long road of food obsession for Lisa, as she desperately tried everything to help her IBS symptoms. Though she did not struggle with her weight, Lisa felt the pressure to maintain it. She spent years following diet programs, taking diet pills, and counting calories. Lisa was all-consumed and miserable. In May of 2022, Lisa came across an article on how autophagy could help with hypothyroidism. This ultimately led her to Fast Feast Repeat. Lisa calls her IF journey a mental health journey in healing her distorted thinking. She now enjoys freedom, awareness, and the ability to listen to her body. Lisa’s advice: Fast clean.

I’ve obviously just begun listening- already in love with this podcast. I’ve listened to two others on “i f” so far and this is my favorite ❤️. So thank you!!!! I’ve been doing “I f” for one month and cannot believe the difference in my energy! I’m 53 and only have about 25 pounds to lose but I’m only 4’11” so that looks like more weight on me( at least in my opinion) 😁. I feel better, my face isn’t as puffy- I’m amazed and want to tell everyone to try it and am very sad when they don’t want to listen🥺

Hmmmm? Mr White seems to have a superiority issue. This is the first episode I've stopped before it was over. I love you Gin!
