Welcome Gin.   (02:18): Well, so nice to see you. Good to be here with you today.   (02:22): Yeah, I'm so excited to have you here. And we are doing a live podcast interview with masterclass. So some of the ladies from my midlife metabolism programs are here and they're gonna get to listen and watch live and then ask questions later, which is a super fun benefit of being in my programs. So I think they'll really enjoy that. So how did you get started with intermittent fasting? It sounds like you were overweight. What was going on for you?   (02:54): Yeah, I was actually obese and , it's a hard word to say, right? I was 210 pounds at five five, and you know, I have a long weight loss, weight loss story, just like so many people do that involves lots of years of yo-yoing, right? Probably most women and men these days can relate to that. And I was always looking for a way to lose the weight and keep it off for good, but it never happened. You know, I, I thought about this recently and it just struck me, you know, I've been at my goal now since 2015, I've been in the same goal range, wearing the same clothes. This is the first time I'm 53. I just turned 53. This is the only time in my life from birth that I have maintained a stable weight for a period of time. Cause you know, the first, you know, whatever it is, 18 years you're growing.   (03:42): So I was growing and then right for the next years I was yo-yoing. I mean, there was always a time when every year I was getting bigger than I was dieting, then I was gaining and I was losing and it just kept going. And like probably so many people listening the yo-yo years get, get higher. Right. You lose some, then you gain more, then you lose a little, then you gain more. And so that's pretty much what happened to me. You know, I did all the things starting from my first diet. Really. I was counting calories during college. Like so many of us were mm-hmm and my first like real diet though, I think was the low fat era. When I graduated from college, it was the early nineties. So I started with the low, low fat loss. A lot of weight, looked awful, ate a lot of snack Wells oh my gosh.   (04:29):I remember those. And also, do you remember SpaghettiOs had zero grams of fat, zero grams of that 11 on spaghetti and snack Wells, which is certainly not what, what they meant with eat low fat. Right. But that's what I was doing. Probably most people too, but I just kept trying everything over the years, you know? And it got wackier and wackier from the HCG diet lost a lot of weight gained even more back. I took doctor prescribed diet pills. It was super get those. They'll give 'em to you. You lose the weight long as you keep taking 'em. Right. But that was no good, but it basically, I trashed my metabolism with all of those diets. Now I first heard about intermittent fasting, probably around 2009. You know, I was the person that would go to the Amazon weight loss category and look at all the books that were bestsellers and see what people were doing.   (05:21): And I would buy them. And actually I would first read the comments, right? What everybody said on Amazon, looking for that next best diet. So it's no surprise that I stumbled upon intermittent fasting and I would dabble in it here and there from oh nine to 14. But you know, we didn't know anything about it. Back then. Mm-Hmm everyone who was writing about intermittent fasting in the early days all said it works cause you're eating fewer calories. So here are some ways to eat fewer calories through intermittent fasting. And there was like a five hour window that was Dr. Burt hearing's fast five plan. There was alternate daily fasting. You could do. You were having a down day followed by an up day. You know, one day you did it one day, you didn't. And but every single plan talked about, it's just calorie restriction in an eating window or every other day.   (06:08): So I would dabble in it. But you know, I didn't understand so many things. I know now I didn't understand about insulin. I didn't understand about being metabolically flexible and what that means. And so I dabbled and my body never became adapted to fasting any of the times that I tried it. Cause I didn't give it long enough. Mm-Hmm I also didn't understand something. I now call the clean fast, which you can talk about a little bit later, but basically I lived in the hard part and it never got to be something that felt easy or good mm-hmm so I just kept dieting and all those years still wasn't doing well until finally in 2014, I went on a family cruise and we were in the Caribbean for seven days. It was a wonderful trip, but I looked at the pictures of me with my family and like those formal night pictures on a cruise ship.   (06:59): Mm-Hmm yeah. I was like, who is that in the picture? I looked like myself, but like inflated, like someone had put a pump in my mouth and my whole body just felt inflated. And I remember on that trip, we did this wonderful excursion where we were hiking up the Mayan ruins and it was really hard to carry my body, which was 80 pounds heavier than it is today. Up those Mayan ruins up those steps. I was like, I just can't do this. And so I was just miserable the whole time. So I came back home and said, this is the time I've gotta do something. Well, I turned to HCG one more time. and of course, you know, I was like, I can't do this ever again. I can't do this ever again. So I quit that. And that summer, August of 2014, I found my way back to intermittent fasting for the last time.   (07:43): Meaning that I stuck with it. There's the difference. I stuck with it and I never quit doing it. And so I wanted to lose 75 pounds. I lost those 75, went on to lose about five more. And I've been maintaining the loss since 2015, which is wow. Astonishing. Because like I said, I had never been the same weight season after season after season. So that's, what's, what's changed for me is maintenance has been, you know, pretty easy. My honesty pants get a little tight. I know what to do. You know, I've now been through menopause. I went through that at 51 and yeah, my body just keeps feeling great and intermittent fasting is not so secret.   (08:27): Well, not so secret secret, that sounds like a book. So I know everybody will dive into the details, but I know some people are thinking really Jen, you didn't exercise and work out at the gym, like crazy. Really Jen, you didn't, you know this, that or the other, none of that.   (08:43): No. And you know, really, I've never been someone who loved to do a lot of exercise. And interestingly enough, I had my DNA analyzed through 23. Me ran it through a couple of different third party websites. That'll tell you things about yourself. I was so not surprised when it came to exercise, my DNA report said not likely to lose weight with exercise and some people get the opposite. Some people have a genetic profile where exercise is required for them to lose weight. But for me, I mean, I, I do exercise. Don't get me wrong. I'm now doing water aerobics. We just moved. I do water aerobics every single day that I can get to it. And I'm an active person. I'm not sedentary, but exercise has never been that. Like I never once started an exercise program and bam, the weight came off. It's always had to be something else.   (09:30): Right. Okay, great. So let's dive into it. You talked about when intermittent fasting first came out, there were different people with different plans and you kind of bopped around and tried different ones. Mm-Hmm talk about what was the plan that you initially started with? Are you still with that? What are the details kind of, and then also maybe break down some lingo. I think hopefully most people have heard of intermittent fasting so they know what you're feeding window needs, right? You're fasting interval, things like that, but maybe they don't so feel free to fill in the basics. I'm always doing the podcast as a listener and some people are gonna be newbies and others are gonna be experts. So I try to keep them all along for the ride. So feel free to detail us.   (10:13): All right. Well the most common intermittent fasting approach is the daily eating window approach, which is formally known as time restricted eating, which some people like a lot better because you know, the word fasting is a little scary. You know, I didn't make this up. There's a saying that that goes along with fasting and it's brilliant. And the saying goes like this diets are easy in contemplation, but hard in execution. Right. You know, we've all like thought about a new diet, oh, this is gonna be fabulous. But then we crash and burn. Cause it's really hard to keep up a restrictive diet long term. Well, fasting is completely opposite. Fasting is hard in contemplation, but it's easy in execution. It only sounds like it's gonna be hard. You know, what was really hard was all the diets that I was doing when I was eating, you know, small meals all throughout the day that was miserable.   (11:02): The low calorie diets I did before. But with intermittent fasting, once your body adapts and you find what really works well for you and your body is metabolically flexible. Mm-Hmm you get to figure out what your ideal eating window is, what time of day that works best for you. We're not all the same. I have an evening eating window. Some of my foundations, I mentioned earlier with Dr. Burt, hearing's fast five approach and he's 19 five. That's what he did himself. And that was one of the very earliest. I think that was the earliest book out about eating windows. He just kind of figured it out and he didn't start eating till five and he had a five hour eating window. So that's fast five. He started five. You go for five now. Of course, that's not exactly how I do it. I don't wait till five to open my window, but that's what worked for him.   (11:50): So his program was wait till five, then have a five hour eating window. He's like, or you can move it around. However you want. Mm-Hmm , which is really what I did. So a five hour eating window is a great eating window length for me. And I feel better when I opened my window in the afternoon today I opened three 30 and I had like a little snack. And then I had dinner with my husband before we started talking today. We usually don't eat till around seven, but I ate a little earlier today just for y'all mm-hmm and, and my window is closed. So I probably had a three hour eating window today. And that's just how it worked because by the time we're done, I'm not gonna want to eat again. And I've had enough. I'm not hungry anymore, but it's a very flexible way to live.   (12:31): But just this morning, you know, you mentioned, I have a podcast called intermittent fasting stories today. I interviewed, I think it was number 249 on the podcast and she has a morning eating window. She opens her eating window at seven 30 in the morning and she has a light breakfast. And then she has a really hearty lunch around one o'clock then she closes her window and that's it. And then she fast till the next morning. So she has about a six hour eating window every day. And that works really well for her, but hers is in the morning. So, you know, if you hear people telling you, here's how you must do it, here's how you must structure your day. Here's when the best time to have it is ignore all that. My mission in life is to teach people that you're very much a study of one when it comes to how long your eating window should be, how long your fast should be, what you're eating and your eating window, all of that is gonna be very individual for you. And I want people to feel empowered, to experiment and find what feels right to them. I have a chapter in my book, fast FET repeat, and it's called tweak it till it's easy. And I mean that mm-hmm, , it's your role as someone who's trying something to tweak it until it feels easy till it feels like a lifestyle, because when you find what works best for you, it really does become an easy lifestyle.   (13:50): Yeah. I hear that from people I've tried it and my biggest challenge, and maybe we can talk about this a little cause I'm sure I'm not the only one is with the exercise. I work out a hard first thing in the morning. And what was happening is I was trying to open my feeding window in the afternoon and I was working out like a feed in the morning and I just started having, literally I noticed my skin sagging and then someone said to me, well, you're probably losing collagen cuz you're not getting enough protein cuz you're working out like that. I was like, you know what? That's true. And so how do you navigate this with exercise?   (14:29): Well, again, that is you haven't found your sweet spot. You, that was obviously not your sweet spot. And also I would like to ask when you were fasting, were you fasting clean? What were you having to drink during the fast   (14:42): Water?   (14:43): Okay. Just water. Well then that's good. That's that's important. Cause a lot of people are not. So I wanted to throw that out there, but you know, it sounds to me like perhaps with the amount of working out that you were doing waiting until afternoon to open your eating window was not your sweet spot.   (14:59): Right?   (14:59): You gotta squeak. It feel it's easy.   (15:01): But my challenge is so I need to eat because I'm gonna go work out, but I'm really not hungry until, so it's like,   (15:10): Well, so the issue was the skin sagging and that was it.   (15:14): No, I also didn't feel good. Okay.   (15:16): Well if you didn't feel good then that's not a good sign. You wanna feel good? Yeah. Cause the key is you wanna feel good, but like for me, and I guess I'm doing water aerobics. That's not maybe as intense as what you're doing, but a lot of people in the fasting community are able to work out hard and then keep asking for hours. How long were, did you try it? How long did you give it?   (15:35): Oh gosh, I'd have to look back. But it was for a few months.   (15:38): Okay. Okay. Yeah. Well by then, you know, you would expect that you would be adapted by then. So it sounds like to me, perhaps your eating window, wasn't best for you to wait till the late afternoon.   (15:49): Yeah. So I know that's one thing I struggled with. I've heard other people talking about it too. And then the other concern I know a lot of people have, maybe you can speak to, this is getting enough protein in, in a shorter eating window.   (16:04): You know, that's an interesting question. We do get that a lot. And something to keep in mind is not all of our protein needs have to come from the foods that we're eating. Now that might sound crazy. So let me explain. You've heard ology before, right? Yeah. Otology is our, body's basically it's our body's recycling and upcycling system, but I was an elementary teacher for 28 years. So I like to explain things in a simple way. It's our body's upcycling program. So when you're in the fasted state, your body is looking around, well, nothing's coming in, let's see what's around. And so your body breaks down old proteins and recycles them and can use those old proteins to build new things. So when you're fasting clean, now, if you're eating all day long, like breakfast, snack, lunch snack that actually Downes Autophy and downregulated Autophy, it gets worse and worse.   (17:01): The older we get mm-hmm . And so, you know, living in the modern world where we are eating all the time, most people are down regulated. Autophy leads to a lot of the problems that come along with aging. But when we're fasting, especially when we're fasting clean, we have increased Autophy. So Autophy is upregulated. We're better able to recycle those old junky proteins. So I'm able to build muscle. When I, when I just started doing my water aerobics in the past month or so since we just moved to a new, a new place, new neighborhood doing the water aerobics, I am building muscle, working out in the fasted state every morning, just doing that water aerobics. And I haven't increased the amount of protein that I'm eating, but I mean maybe I have without realizing it because I also am a big believer in the protein leverage hypothesis. Have you heard that that before?   (17:49): No. Talk about that.   (17:51): All right. Well, I can't remember who came up with a protein leverage hypothesis. Was it professor Nokes? I'm not sure Tim Nokes maybe, but basically it says that we have in our bodies, like we're a lot smarter than we give ourselves credit for our bodies, let us know what they need. So if you're not getting enough protein, your body is going to crave more protein until you give it what it needs. And so, you know, if, if you were like, you're eating and you're finding that you're unsatisfied, that might be your body saying, Hey, we need more protein. It's not gonna let you not get enough protein over time. And so, you know, when you think about what I said, auto, our body is recycling the protein plus during your eating window, if you are hungry for protein, we just really might not need also as much as we've been led to believe Dr. Jason fun. I'm sure you're familiar with his work. He has a great blog post about that. I think it's called how much protein is excessive or something. Mm-Hmm . And basically that people are always worried about not getting enough protein when really it's less of an issue than we realize.   (18:59): Okay. So is that something that you usually recommend that people track? How many grams of protein they're getting? Yeah. So it's more of an intuitive, let your body decide what it was. Well,   (19:09): You know, really, like I said, our bodies are pretty smart and I haven't noticed muscle loss. Like I said, I'm 53. I don't do anything harder than water aerobics. with my little weights in the water and I've not had trouble with muscle wasting and I've been doing fasting for years now and I was going to happen. It would've happened, right?   (19:29): Yeah. Oh yeah, for sure. Definitely would've but I know that's something   (19:32): That I have large communities and I left Facebook in early 20, 21 and we had almost half a million group members when I left. And one other thing about fasting is when, when you're fasting clean, we have upregulated human growth hormone. So when you have upregulated human growth hormone and you have a lot of apathy going on and you're nourishing your body well during your eating window, you're absolutely going to be fine. You know, if you do notice that, oh gosh, you know, maybe I'm losing a little muscle, just add a little 13, but you don't have to count it. It doesn't have to be that hard. We've got people doing all sorts of things in our community, building muscle, like crazy, just eating intuitively with their bodies and not counting in a single macro.   (20:17): Yeah. Let's dive into that. Cause we're so we come from that calorie counting culture, the macro culture and this many grams of this and this many grams of that. And people oftentimes will even say to me like, well, how many grams of protein carbs fats should I be getting and what types and they want, they want the rules and I'm pretty much an intuitive eater. So , but I will tell people if they ask, so what is your take on that? Well,   (20:45): I mean, how did people ever survive before we had ? I mean, right. I mean, like if you go back in time, you know, people were not like dropping dead from if food was plentiful, any environment in the world where food was plentiful, people just knew what to eat and how much to eat. Right. They did not make it hard. And if you go to like the blue zones, now that mm-hmm, , you're familiar with the blue zones. Yeah. Yeah. Mm-Hmm five pockets in the world. National geographic has researched them where people live to be over a hundred. If you walked into some of those blue zones and said, let's talk about macros. They would look at you. Like you're nuts. Those people are living to be over a hundred. They're not counting a single calorie. They're not counting a single macro they're living long and healthy lives. And there's a lot of factors that go together to make that happen. But they're eating real foods like their ancestors did. Mm-Hmm and they're not counting a thing.   (21:41): Right. And so that's how you usually teach and work with peoples just intuitively. But there are some people who would try that and they would go for the Hogan dos and the Ben and Jerry's and you know, all the things.   (21:54): Here's the beautiful thing about intermittent fasting. There's something we call appetite correction. And Dr. Bur hut hearing came up with that phrase as well. But it's just a beautiful phrase. And it means that your body will direct you to what you need as far as how much food you need. And also what you know, most of us find when we're intermittent faster, as you, you know, people may start off eating the standard American diet, but over time your tastes change. Yes. Weirdest thing, you actually tune back into your hunger and satiety signals. Our bodies do not count calories. Our bodies count nutrients. So when you are intuitive and you are not just cramming every emotion down all day long with food, like I'm gonna say, I used to do when I was obese, I was eating for morning till night, because of course that was also what we were told to do.   (22:46): We were told to eat breakfast within 30 minutes of your feet, hitting the floor and have frequent snacks, cuz that would boost your metabolism. That's what we were all told and how come I was 210 pounds. Right? I was doing all the things. And so I could not hear any signals from my body at that point. But now that I'm an intermittent faster, like, oh the Brussels sprouts look good. And so you may start off eating the standard American diet, but over time, it's amazing how your body directs you to like the first time you eat something that used to be your favorite thing. Like I can remember the first time I had a, a Starbucks, pumpkin spice latte after I'd lost the weight and been maintaining for a while. And that had always been my favorite, you know, when it was latte season and my window was open one day I was at target, there was a Starbucks in there. I'm like, I'm gonna have a pumpkin spice latte and my window was open. It's gonna be delicious. And I tasted it and I'm like, why does this taste like bug spray? This tastes awful. And I'm like, they have changed the recipe of no, they didn't change the recipe. my taste buds changed. The more real food you eat, the more you're fasting and living that lifestyle, your body just, it really changes in a way you just couldn't expect.   (24:01): Yeah. You know, for me it was CBOs. When I weighed 2 43, I would eat Cinnabons   (24:07): And those are not even good. Are they? I had one in an airport in like maybe 2018 cuz you know, it smelled so good. I was with my sister, we were flying down. It tasted like, like poison.   (24:18): Yes. Like poison. It tastes like chemicals,   (24:21): Chemicals. Exactly.   (24:22): Right. So I love the intuitive and I noticed for me, if I'm not stressed, I will intuitively eat very healthy things. And it's only when the stress comes that I want sugar.   (24:35): They're looking for soothing. Right.   (24:38): They're right. All right. So we talked about that. No macros, I loved what you said. That's a quotable. Our bodies do not cap calories counts, nutrients mm-hmm . And then in terms of, you know, you hear so many things, are you also recommending a flexible kind of intuitive window that changes all the time based on how you feel or do you find that people do better when they set it and stick to it? And   (25:07): That depends on the person that's gonna be very individual. There are some people that need more structure just because if it's too loosey goosey, then the next minute they're not fasting anymore. Right. Right. Like it's so flexible. They forgot to do it. So in fast Fe repeat, I have something called the 28 day fast start. And that is a period of time when people are, are learning how to do it. Your body is developing the skills that it needs behind the scenes to flip that metabolic switch to fat burning. And so that you're metabolically flexible. And so it is very much more like here is how you're going to do it day to day as your body is adapting. But then after those 28 days, that's where the tweak till a dizzy part comes in, and you start to figure out what works for you.   (25:50): And there's a lot to be said for mixing things up from day to day, you know, like one day, if you have a one-hour eating window, cuz you were super busy and crazy that day, but that doesn't mean you need to do that tomorrow. Tomorrow. You're probably gonna need a little bit longer. So we don't want to be too rigid and overs restricting for our bodies. So it's really like for me, I would just stick to, you know, as long as I have like a five-hour eating window, pretty much from day to day, I could move it around. When I was losing weight, that really worked well for me. Other people find they might need an eight-hour eating window. Maybe five hours is too restrictive, but someone else might find they need a four-hour eating window because they tend to overeat. If they eat for five, it just really is all about learning about yourself and responding to how it's going.   (26:35): I love that. That's something that I talk about all the time I called your body. She, you know, talked to her what she's gonna tell you what she needs, but we are so socialized out of listening internally and we're so externally directed. So it really is this re acquaintance. And it sounds like you are really teaching that too. Like your body knows what it needs and what it doesn't need. And if   (27:00): It doesn't feel good, it's telling you for a reason, there's something that is not feeling good. Like what you were doing before your body told you that was not working. That was not your asking protocol for whatever reason you hadn't found it yet.   (27:14): No, and I haven't, I haven't   (27:15): Tried it person.   (27:16): No, see that's a thing I'm not hungry till the afternoon, but I like to work out. So I haven't figured out how to fix that. So I just stopped doing it. I'm like, this is not working. I don't feel good. I'm not doing it, but   (27:29): I guess it might be hard for you to work out later in the day. Yeah.   (27:33): Yeah. It's a morning thing. So, well, I'll figure it out. I'm wondering you have this great podcast where people talk about their stories with intermittent fasting. Could you share some of your favorite stories from people you've had on the podcast?   (27:48): You know, one of the most fun that I've had that I enjoyed so very much, I talked to a guest and she had been on extreme weight loss that extreme makeover, weight loss edition, Jackie arena is her name. And she's been in my community from way back when we were on Facebook. She's been in my group now she's in my off Facebook, private community. And she told her story, she lost over 200 pounds. Mm-Hmm in a year of doing extreme makeover, weight loss edition. And she talked about, and it was fascinating to talk to her because when I wrote fast Fe repeat, I talked about weight loss and all of that. Are you familiar with the Minnesota starvation experiments that they   (28:28): Take? No, what's   (28:30): That well in the Minnesota starvation experiments, basically trying to figure out, you know, how much food do people need to live? What happens if we really restrict how much that people are eating? So they had these conscientious objectors who weren't fighting in world war II and they're like, we'll use y'all. And so they put 'em on this, like I think a college campus in Minnesota and they studied them and what these were men and they put 'em on 1500 or something calories a day mm-hmm , which we probably are like, that's just what you do. You eat 1500 calories a day, but they studied them on this. What they called that a starvation diet. And so it was fascinating. I, I write about this in the introduction to fast FEAS repeat, but it talked about all the things they went through. Like they started to become obsessed with food.   (29:13): They started to have feelings of wanting to bend and all these things that were happening to their bodies as they were restricting, restricting, restricting. And when I talked to Jackie, I mean it was like textbooks when the, the experiences that she went through going through that extreme weight loss, cuz it was basically just eat less and less and less and less. As you continue to lose that much weight, you have to just eat less and even more, less, more restriction, less and less and more and more working out. We've all seen those shows. And so by the end of it, I mean she had tanked her hormones. She was no longer having cycles. She had textbook. I mean obviously the Minnesota starvation experiment was men, but everything that they went through, as far as like on that, that starvation regimen she was going through and it took her years to get her hormones back in a good place.   (30:05): And so, I mean that just lets you know how dangerous diet culture is, but she, after that, you know, she regained weight obviously, cuz your body is fighting back mm-hmm whenever you have, you know, they also did the biggest loser studies did you? Right. I saw that one. That was so interesting. Similar kind of a thing. They restricted so much that everything's, their metabolism slowed down. And then of course, as soon as they couldn't keep up that level, bam here came the way back and then their metabolisms were slower than when they had started. Right. So it was just fascinating to talk to her. And then she found intermittent fasting how that has been completely different and how she has finally been able to lose the weight through intermittent fasting and found peace around food that, that she didn't have before. And it was just so interesting to hear the, all the theory basically she's lived it all the, the bad diet theory followed watching.   (31:03): She's a living example. She's a living example of every single theory that I talk about in fast fees, repeat of like, here's what they found. Here's what the research says. She's lived it and all of her experiences really show it. So I loved that episode. I mean, I've talked to, like I said, 249 today and most of them are just normal people. One that I really loved was Dr. Mark Matson. Are you familiar with his work? No, I haven't heard of him. You may have heard of his work and not known it. Do you remember in the end of 2019, when there was that big new England journal of medicine article about fasting, it came out on like December 26th, 2019 and suddenly, and fasting was all over the news. Yes. People were talking about how healthy it was. Well, Dr. Mark Matson was the author of that new England journal of medicine article.   (31:51): And it turns out he wrote it because a lot of doctors were having patients starting to come in to their practice and saying I'm doing intermittent fasting, but the doctors didn't really know a lot about it. So they were like, we need to know more about this. And so the new England journal of medicine reached out to Dr. Mathson and asked him to write that review article. So it's a review article. So it covers all the science, all the, the best information that's out there. And it was really amazing when that came out in 2019, because I was running these Facebook groups and when people would join, we're like, why do you wanna join? And people always said, I wanna lose weight. I wanna lose weight. But all of a sudden people started saying, I wanna get healthy. I wanna live longer. I wanna prevent Alzheimer's because suddenly the conversation was shifted and people realized intermittent fasting is a very healthy way to live.   (32:38): And I really credit mark Mathson for that. But he came on my podcast and intermittent fasting stories and talked about his story. And you know, he worked at John's Hopkins for his whole research career mm-hmm and he actually started doing intermittent fasting in the eighties wow. As grad student or something and just how he, he naturally gravitated towards, but he studied fasting and the effects on the brain, he's a neurological researcher, and you know, the anti-Alzheimer's properties and all the things like that and how it helps our neurological health in so many ways. But it was really fascinating to talk to him. And then everything in between just, you know, normal people who are fascinating. I've talked to doctors who live a lifestyle. I've talked to the mom next door, the dad next door. And I love talking to everybody because in 249 stories, everyone has something new to bring to the table to talk about how intermittent fasting has changed their life.   (33:31): I love that you mentioned something earlier about this starvation experiment, which I didn't know about. That sounds horrible. What is the difference with calorie restriction, where you're eating all the time and the food obsession and the wanting to binge versus having a shortened eating and a great   (33:52): Question. And I love that you asked it. Okay. So let's talk about how our bodies get fueled. Most people, especially now, if you look around, most people are carrying a whole lot of energy around in their bodies, right?   (34:04): a lot of energy equals fat. You're   (34:06): Carrying a lot of calories or like, like a calorie suit, right? People are wearing a calorie suit and those calories, if you can access them, the calories you have in stored fat, they provide great fuel for your body. And the key is you wanna be able to tap into those fat stores and use that energy. Well, that's where low calorie diets, where you're eating all day long. That's where it breaks down. We're not meant to eat tiny little amounts of food all day long, like a little drip, drip of a feeding tube or something. We're not meant to do that. And it has to do with the hormone. Insulin. Insulin is our storage hormone. And when insulin is high and when insulin levels are high, like if someone has insulin resistance type two diabetes, basically you have high fasted levels of insulin. Your insulin's high all the time.   (34:57): Insulin is anti lipolytic, meaning it locks down your fat stores. So when you have high levels of insulin all the time, you have a really hard time accessing your stored fat and burning it for fuel. We have all experienced that when you're doing the low calorie diet and you're having your tiny little breakfast and you're drinking your diet soda, and then you're having little snack. You are keeping your insulin high all the time. And I'll talk in a minute about why diet sodas do that and why they're not part of the clean fast, because they cause an insulin response. But in the meantime, your insulin is up, up, up all the time. You cannot tap into your fat stores very well. It's like they're locked away, right? So you are not well fueled. You're having a low calorie diet, but because insulin is high that the low calorie diet isn't fueling you and you can't get to your fat stores.   (35:47): So now your body has to, downregulate your metabolism, it's in a panic. Well now how fasting is different. Yeah. Once your metabolically flexible and you're fasting and you're keeping your insulin levels low during the fast, suddenly your body can now see all that fat too, and your body can start using the fat for fuel. And so just as I talked about your meeting, some of your protein needs through Autophy you're meeting some of your fuel needs through the fat that your body is burning. So we actually have one study that was really interesting. They followed people over a 72 hour F. Now I'm not recommending people start bathing for 72 hours. I eat every day. But when they were studying the people over these 72 hours, they looked at what their metabolic rate was doing. And everyone had like a baseline metabolic, right when they started.   (36:38): And then as time went on, their metabolic rate actually went up over the course of this fast. It was a 72 hour fast, like I said, and then it reached a peak at a certain point. And then it started to trim slowly down again. And so by the time they got to the 72, the end of the 72 hours, their metabolic rate was actually higher than it had been at baseline, but trending downward. So, you know, what does that tell us that tells us that fasting, when we start tapping into those fast stores, our bodies get going and they can actually ramp up that metabolic rate, but it also tells us that we don't wanna just keep fasting forever and ever cuz if you follow that trajectory down, I mean, eventually it would've gone below baseline. So that's why extended fasting for days and days at a time that is gonna affect your metabolic rate over time. So you wanna find the balance between fasting and feasting and that's really important cuz you can over fast and that's not a good thing.   (37:36): Yes. That's a great explanation. Thank you for explaining that. And I think some people might not know what metabolic flexibility is. I mean, you've kind of described it, but can you talk a little bit more about that?   (37:48): It's really how we're we're designed to be. Our bodies are designed to be able to use whatever fuel source is available. At the time we have the ability to store fat for when we need it. Our body can take that stored fat and our livers can turn fat into keytones, which fuels our brain beautifully. And we have plenty of energy to do what we need when there's, when there's not food around. But when food is available, we can flip that switch and we're, you know, using that food for fuel. So what happens when there's no food for fuel, your body flips the switch back to using your fat stores. So we are meant to be metabolically flexible and have the ability to switch from one source to the other. And we lose that metabolic flexibility in today's modern world with the eating all the time, nobody ever has to flip that switch to fat burning. And that is why, you know, I talked about the 28 day fast start when people have to let their bodies adapt. That's why, because when you first start your body, it doesn't wanna do that. And you also may not even have those fat burning enzymes built up your body just really cannot do it yet. And you also have to get insulin down over the over time. But at first you you're gonna be hangry. You're gonna be tired. Your body's like, come on. Where's the latte that I'm used to having at 10:00 AM.   (39:04): where's   (39:05): The breakfast burrito from the drivethrough or whatever it is. And eventually though your body's like, all right, fine, fine. I'll go tap into the fat store. Then it flips that switch. And there you go.   (39:19): Yeah. It's kind of like, you have to be your body's parent and like, Nope, you're not getting that. Nope. You're not getting that. Exactly. You know, the kids are like, can we have a cookie? Can we have a cookie? And I'm getting to know dinners coming. And they devour the Brussels spout cuz they didn't get the cookie. So now I'm   (39:35): Not, your body wants the cookie. And if you don't give it the cookie, if you eat your fat,   (39:39): eat your fat, go eat fat. Right. Right. So there's so much to talk about with this. I definitely want to recommend that people get your books, read your books during your community. I just love the titles that you have. There's so descriptive and clear. And I think that makes it very accessible to pretty much everyone. And I love that and you're so real and it's just great. So we'll have links to the books in the show notes. We'll also put a link to your community so that people can go there and actually grab links to your podcast too. And put those in there so everybody can listen. Thank you for staying up late to meet with us.   (40:26): It's not really that late. I just don't usually do things that I have to be active after dinner. Cause I had dinner usually after dinner I'm in wind down mode.   (40:36): Got it. Got it. Well, we will get you there soon. We'll have a few questions and answers any last things that you wanna share with everyone before we wrap? No, I didn't.   (40:46): Didn't talk about the clean fast, which is super duper important. Okay. Go ahead. Have during the fast and a lot of people have tried intermittent fasting and for whatever reason, they were not successful. And when I talk to people who are like, oh yeah, I tried that. It didn't work for me. There are usually two things that come up time. And again, one, they didn't give it long enough. Mm-Hmm and two, they were not fasting clean. So let's talk about what it means to fast clean. You know, I just talked about how we wanna keep insulin down. That's so important. So we can tap into our fast stores. Well, what causes to have an insulin response? Eating? Obviously we're not eating we're fasting, but also it turns out the taste of sweetness. If our brain thinks food is coming in, right? Even if it's a diet Coke, our brain doesn't understand the cephalic phase insulin response is when you taste something like that, diet soda, your brain says, we know what sweetness means.   (41:38): It means that sugar is coming in because in nature, everything that is paired with sweetness is like, you know, sugary or fruit or honey or whatever. Right? And so your pancreas goes ahead and pumps out some insulin because it knows you're gonna have high blood sugar soon. But then again, you're having this diet soda because it has zero calories. No sugar comes in, but you still have high insulin. And so you wanna keep your insulin down so your body can tap into your fat stores. So avoid anything. That's sweet. See all these miracle sweeteners. You're like this one doesn't raise your insulin. This one doesn't your brain doesn't know the difference. It doesn't milk fruit. It's like, no, it just tastes sweetness. And so you wanna avoid anything sweet. Don't put anything in your coffee to add sweetness or your tea. Don't add anything like that.   (42:26): But, and you wanna avoid things like lemon, apple, cider vinegar, anything that might have a food like taste, avoid those things. Cinnamon, all that avoid all that. The second goal is we wanna have, we wanna be tapping into our fat stores for fuel. So you don't wanna take in sources of fat during the fast don't put the butter in your coffee, the cream in your coffee. Don't put anything in your coffee. other than the coffee, don't take exogenous. Keytones cuz if you're taking in another source of fuel, your body's gonna use that. It's not gonna tap into your fat stores. We don't just wanna have keytones. We wanna make 'em from our stored fat. Yeah. If you're putting MCT oil in your coffee, your body's gonna take that MCT oil and turn it into keytones. But you want to get your keytones from your own body, fat, not from something you're putting in your coffee cup.   (43:16): And so the third thing we wanna do, our third fasting goal is we wanna have that increased auto and to do that, we don't wanna take in any sources of protein because protein, halts auto. So don't have bone broth or anything like that, you know? And if you start, you know, listening to people here and there there's all sorts of really bad recommendations, like oh 50 calories, doesn't break a fast. That is not true. Like in that case you could literally just like eat a jelly bean every five minutes and like fasting and that is not fasting. And some people are like, well what about a little splash of cream? Because this fasting expert over here says it's okay to put in a little splash of cream. Well, what is cream? Well it's dairy. If dairy is nature's perfect food for growing a mammal baby at the time of their life where they're growing the most rapidly.   (44:06): Does that sound like fasting? No, no anti dairy. Keep it in your eating window. If, if dairy works for you, but dairy is in no way, shape or form fasting, neither is almond milk. That none of that is that's not fasting yeah. So stick to the clean fast plain water, plain sparkling water, no flavors added. Don't add anything in there for flavor. It's not supposed to be a flavor adventure. We're taking a break from that. You can have all the flavor adventure you want in your eating window. You can have black coffee, plain tea. Now why can we have the black coffee and the plain tea? Well, those have a bitter flavor profile and that is not associated with the cephalic phase insulin response.   (44:48): That is very important. Thank you for explaining that. And you know what I realize we didn't talk about which we gotta hit on. This is like you said, when the new England journal article came out in 2019, people shifted from it. Wasn't about weight loss. They wanted to be healthy. Right? Can you just hit on the highlights of all the diseases that intermittent fasting is recruiting to help   (45:12): I cannot because the list would be so long. I   (45:15): Know like,   (45:16): You know, as a medical professional yourself, anything that's connected with insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome inflammation. I mean, that's like the root of like everything, right?   (45:27):Everything,   (45:27): Insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, inflammation. Those are the things that intermittent fasting helps with. So anything that would be, if you go downstream from whatever medical condition and the downstream   (45:40): Problem,   (45:42): If you ever read B's book why we get sick?   (45:45): I have not. No,   (45:46): You gotta read that next. Get that book. Okay. If you will, if you haven't read fast, Pete, read that, but then need to read then Dr. Benjamin Bick. Men's why we get sick. And it basically makes the case. He's like the premier insulin resistant expert in the world, I think. And it basically talks about how insulin resistance, how it CA and he walks you through it, you know, how does it affect us in menopause? How does it affect, oh yeah. His health. How does it? And it's really the root of everything. So getting your insulin and can under control is just so important. It, it will, I mean, you type two diabetes. I mean, I think people say crazy things on the podcast that have been helped by, you know, I mean simple things. Yes. But people have had crazy results that you wouldn't even expect. I talked to somebody last week, she was wheelchair bound due to, she had some autoimmune type things that were going on and intermitent, festing, she's not been in a wheelchair. I mean, she's now like gained her mobility bag and I mean, it it's like you would never write all this in a book, cuz it sounds like too far fetched, but when people tell you their own story, you know that it's true.   (46:51): Yeah. That's amazing. I mean, I always say that insulin is that loose thread on the knotted ball of yarn of all your hormones and you gotta get it right. And I'm a big believer in, there are two prescriptions we need as women, as we age, we need the written one for natural hormones and we need this kind of life prescription. So thank you very much, Gin Stephens for coming on the podcast and sharing your wisdom with all of us.   (47:20): Well, I love doing it   (47:22): and thank you all for joining us for another episode of The Hormone Prescription Podcast.

On this week's episode of The Girlfriend Doctor, I had a conversation with Gin Stephens, a former elementary school teacher who turned to fasting as a way to lose weight after becoming obese. She is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Fast Feast Repeat as well as Cleanish and other books. Fasting is not about what you eat, but when you eat. It's become a healthy way to lose unwanted pounds and maintain optimal weight and health. Generally, intermittent fasting means not eating for 16 hours between dinner and breakfast, and then eating regularly for those other 8 hours. The hours may vary per person. When you first take on intermittent fasting, you have to allow your body to get “fat-adapted” and then you can tailor your fasting so it's easy. It's all about learning to listen to the body and what rhythm feels good, and practice “intuitive eating.” Intermittent fasting will not cause a lot of weight loss fast, in fact, in most cases, not for the first 28 days. But from that point forward, you can expect to see steady weight loss and better overall energy and health.   KEY TAKEAWAYS [4:57] Gin's story of obesity [12:24] Going through the adaptation period [14:24] Figuring out how many fasting hours work for your body [29:26] How fasting helps to identify intolerant foods [37:10] Choosing what to eat while fasting     HOW TO CONNECT WITH OUR GUEST https:// https://www.ginstephens.com/ https://www.intermittentfastingstories.com/ https://www.ginstephens.com/all-blog-posts/   MEMORABLE QUOTES “We can learn to tune into our hunger and satiety signals.

Florence lives in LA with her husband and 4 children. She's from the UK, but was partly raised in Spain where she met her husband who is Peruvian. Florence trained as an opera singer, and now is the Publisher and Co-Founder of an arts and culture magazine in LA. In common with many IFers, Florence has struggled with her weight since she was a child/pre-teen and spent all of her adult years trying different diets and ‘lifestyle changes'. After each baby she would retain most of the pregnancy weight and even gain more in the first year postpartum! After baby number 4 in 2018 she reached her highest weight and after a lifetime fighting with food and dieting, assumed she just had to accept it. Then Covid-19 hit. Florence got some sort of respiratory infection in April 2020, which may or may not have been Covid, but it suddenly became clear to her that she wasn't going to allow her kids to become motherless from only one pre-existing condition - being obese. Florence had dabbled in IF for a month the previous summer to ‘lose some weight' before a trip to visit family because she was ashamed of how overweight she was. But after the trip the pressure was off, then the holidays came, and IF went by the wayside. With the sudden impetus to live to see her kids grown, Florence started her IF journey in earnest in June 2020 and has never looked back. She will never go back to what she now refers to as ‘poisoning herself with food'. Florence originally found IF from a random comment from a friend. It had sounded completely bizarre to her, but she'd looked it up at some point later and joined Gin Stephens' facebook group. From here she found The Fasting Highway and Graeme's supportive community. Being on this sudden determined mission of health in 2020, she jumped straight into OMAD and thanks to the clean fast, found it easy enough. From here she has tried many different protocols, released 70lbs, become a daily runner, tapped into appetite correction, healed her relationship with food, and has settled into an intuitive flexibility with her IF.

Christine Morales is 59yo and lives with her husband in Florida. Before Christine turned nine years old, she was a “skinny” child (actually, normal weight for my height/age). She was raised by her grandparents from the ages of 2 to 9 and were traditional 3 meal a day folks (natural IF without even trying). They did not snack and portions were naturally sensible, never “diet” minded, but not huge either. They had dessert with every dinner, be it canned fruit, or her grandmother's delicious flan- she was an amazing cook.Christine's father remarried when she was turning 9,  and she went to live with him and her new stepmom (“mom” from there on out). Her mom was well meaning, but she overfed everyone. The chunky kid is a healthy kid thought was deep in her. Sweets were plentiful, they ate between meals and were served large portions.Christine went through severe emotional trauma as a young child and later learned to assuage her hurt with food - she had an uncle who weight trained and was part of bodybuilding competitions. Her Uncle, grandfather and sometimes father were hyper focused on weight. The greeting she'd get was 1st: How are your grades? and 2nd: You've gained weight. Her grandfather even pointed out the difference between her and a tall svelte friend she had in high school. Her family was not well versed in confidence building. She was to be seen, not heard.Christine entered the military, married, had children, and watched her weight fluctuate between 114, topping out at 174 pounds (in a non-pregnant state); She is just under 5'1”. Diet mentality had her jumping from incessant calorie counting to fad dieting, always not sustainable. In 2017/2018 intermittent fasting came into her awareness. She read many articles and experimented with having her 1st meal in the afternoon. About 2019, she read Brad Pilon's Eat-Stop-Eat, her first book on the topic. She dropped 30lbs very quickly.Her husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer's dementia around the same time (2019… all the signs were there over a year earlier) and became his full-time sole caregiver (it's been 3 years now). Her doctor insisted she take an anti-depressant, an SSRI, Lexapro was prescribed, and she reluctantly took it - had every side effect listed and put on 26 pounds. By now, she had read more intermittent fasting material, Dr. Fung's books, then Gin Stephens' Delay, Don't Deny and Fast, Feast, Repeat. The magic started! She found her way. In March of 2021at 138 lbs, she made a lifestyle change, and will never look back. She became consistent with her workouts, and has figured out what eating windows worked for her. Entering September 2021, she had lost the 26 pounds and has been maintaining a weight of 110-115 since then. https://www.myzyia.com/8849/shop/catalog.aspx?eventId=E1586090&from=DIRECTLINKSupport the show

I am a 56-year-old married mother of two adult daughters. I spent the first half of my life at a very appropriate weight, but I never believed I was small enough or in shape enough. I did not appreciate the gift of a healthy body and spent far too much time criticizing how I looked. After my daughters were born, I began struggling a little more with weight and proceeded to do all the things I heard about that might help. I worked out, joined Weight Watchers, used the My Fitness Pal app and tried other strategies to, somewhat successfully, slow the weight gain that seemed inevitable. As my 50th birthday approached I had big plans to lose weight, but that goal date came without any change in my size. During the pandemic I gained even more. About two years ago I heard the term Intermittent Fasting for the first time. I tried it without understanding the clean fast and failed miserably after two days. My oldest daughter became engaged in May 2021. I was so happy for her, but I immediately began worrying about how I would feel walking down the aisle at the highest weight I had ever been. Three months passed with me paralyzed by indecision and worrying that nothing would work, not to mention a sinking feeling that any weight lost would immediately return post wedding. At 9 months to the wedding, I began searching the web for help. I remembered the term Intermittent Fasting from my failed attempt over a year ago. I googled the term and found Gin Stephens. After downloading Fast, Feast, Repeat and devouring it immediately, I began IF on August 22, 2022. The Fasting Highway podcast and Facebook page became my best friends because I waited many weeks before I told anyone what I was doing! I was able to release 40 pounds by the week before the wedding! I am so thankful for the way IF has changed, not just my body, but my entire outlook on life. Intermittent Fasting is a gift I give myself every day. I am thankful to have an opportunity to share that gift of health and hope with others. The Fasting Highway News.

When it comes to healthy living, aiming for perfection is a near-impossible feat. There's only so much we can control when it comes to the products that we buy. However, when armed with the right knowledge, we're able to make more informed and educated choices to work towards a cleaner lifestyle. In this conversation with Intermittent Fasting Expert and New York Times bestselling author of Fast. Feast. Repeat., Gin Stephens shares her wisdom from her new book, Clean(ish) about how to eat (mostly) clean and live (mainly) clean as you unlock your body's natural ability to self-clean. You'll learn all about greenwashing, how easy it can be to get duped by seemingly healthy product labels, and how falling for such clever marketing can be contributing to your toxic load and derailing your health goals. Gin also shares how the intermittent fasting diet allows your body to clean, rest, and repair itself during your daily fasting time to help lower your body's toxic load. Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to the food we eat and the products we use on our bodies and in our homes.

Intermittent Fasting Stories with Gin Stephens In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Kelly Dean from Camas, WA. Kelly is a physical therapist, and has her own practice. Growing up, Kelly was a swimmer, and very lean. She continued to swim through college, but when she graduated, her swimming career came to an end. She got married, and experienced five miscarriages. Kelly found herself eating to cope with the sorrow. “It was emotional trauma, and I began to punish my body with food.”  At this same time, Kelly was diagnosed with Diastasis Recti, which is a condition where the abdominal muscles separate. This diagnosis began a journey to heal her core, which also led Kelly to start her own practice, The Tummy Team. Kelly was passionate to help others with this same condition. When her practice shifted to being completely online and with the stressors of the pandemic, her weight steadily climbed, and eventually Kelly was at her highest weight of 212 pounds. Kelly knew it was time to do something about her weight. A friend shared intermittent fasting with her, and she quickly read Fast Feast Repeat. In the first 28 days, Kelly dropped 15 pounds, and knew IF would be something she'd do the rest of her life. “I enjoy the graciousness of this lifestyle,” Kelly exclaims. She has lost 50 pounds, and feels wonderful. The advice she'd give the new IFer: “It's okay to start with small steps. You don't have to be perfect. It's all a process.” Additional Resources: Get Gin's books including Cleanish and the New York Times Bestseller, Fast. Feast.

Feel Good From Within with Yvette Le Blowitz - #SPAITGIRL Podcast  EP.168- CLEAN(ish) with Gin Stephens, Author, Intermittent Faster & Podcast Host Reduce The Toxins In Your Body and Embrace a Clean(ish) Life. Gin Stephens is a Wife, Mother, Retired Teacher, Intermittent Faster and Podcast Host. Gin Stephens is Author of New York Times Bestseller - Fast. Feast. Repeat. In Gin's New York Times bestseller Fast. Feast. Repeat, she taught you how to fast (completely) clean as part of an intermittent fasting lifestyle. Now, whether you're an intermittent faster or not, Gin wants to show you how to become clean(ish) where it counts: you'll learn how to eat (mostly) clean and live (mainly) clean as you unlock your body's natural ability to self-clean. Instead of aiming for perfection (which is impossible) or changing everything at once (which is hard, and never leads to lasting change), you'll cut through the confusion, lose the fear, and embrace the freedom that comes from becoming clean(ish). As you learn how to lower your toxic load through small changes, smart swaps, and simple solutions, you'll breath a (clean) sigh of relief and embrace your own personal evolution toward becoming clean(ish). Yvette Le Blowitz Podcast Host sits down with Gin Stephens, Author of CLEAN(ish) to find out how we can reduce the toxins in our bodies and embrace a Clean(ish)life. In Podcast Episode EP.168 Gin Stephens shares: - a little bit about herself - insights into her latest book - CLEAN(ish) - how to reduce toxins in your body - how to reduce toxins in your home - how to become a Clean(ish) beauty - how to embrace a Clean(ish) lifestyle - some of her self-care rituals Plus so much more...  Get Ready to TUNE IN  ---- Episode 168 - #spaitgirl Podcast with Yvette Le Blowitz  available on Apple, Spotify, Google, Audible, Libysn - all podcast apps search for #spaitgirl on any podcast app or on google  -------- Available to watch on Youtube Channel - Spa it Girl or Yvette Le Blowitz Press the Play Button Below and subscribe ------ JOIN OUR #SPAITGIRL BOOK CLUB Buy a copy of Cleanish by Gin Stephens - order via Booktopia our affilated online bookstore for more books search via Booktopia our affiliated online book store  *click here Hashtag #spaitgirlbookclub //#spaitgirl + tag @spaitgirl - when reading your book  --- STAY IN TOUCH   Podcast Guest Gin Stephens  Best-Selling Author of Fast.

Repeat., and Delay, Don't Deny: Her Living an Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle, was an Amazon #1 best seller in the weight loss category, as well as Clean(ish): Eat (Mostly) Clean, Live (Mainly) Clean, and Unlock Your Body's Natural Ability to Self-Clean (2022), also became another Amazon #1 bestseller in several categories. Gin has lived the intermittent fasting lifestyle since 2014, and credits fasting to her success in losing over 80 pounds.  Along with being a fasting, expert Gin has also tacked the topic of Toxins in the body, and how to get rid of them in pursuit of the Clean(ish) lifestyle in health and nutrition.  You will not believe the simple and incredible places you can eliminate toxins in your everyday life.  She is the host of 3 top-ranked podcasts: Intermittent Fasting Stories, The Intermittent Fasting Podcast (w/Melanie Avalon), and the Life Lessons podcast (w/Sheri Bullock).   Using her 28 years of teaching experience she has created some of the most effective strategies, courses, and thriving communities to help you stay on track with your intermittent fasting, whether you're a beginner or a seasoned faster.    Takeaways :  Intermittent fasting will not show much weight loss in the first 30 days.  You need to switch on your metabolic fat-burning switch  What you are putting on your skin has a huge effect on how you metabolism and overall health, as one of the largest organs of our body How the book the Obesity Code completely changed the way she approached diets and eventually led her to understand how to truly harness the power of intermittent fasting, and how you can too Takeaways [10' 41] as soon as I read the obesity code, I was like, all right. So I'm going to fast with plain water, plain sparkling water, black coffee, nothing added. And the minute I'd made that change, it suddenly became easy.   [13' 49] I'll bump into somebody and they're like, yeah, I tried that. It didn't work for me. And I'm like, how long did you try it? What were you having in your eating window? Every time, every time they were not fast and clean. Or they didn't give it long enough or both   [18' 37] When I first started fasting in 2014, I wasn't ready to clean up my diet at all. I was tired of dieting, so I just started, I was eating the standard American diet. That was not. But I still lost the weight and got healthier. Then I started to feel better. The better you start to feel, the better you want to feel it's a cycle.    [19'58] So the premise of cleanish is, which is really, I think, very common sense, put fewer toxins in yes. And support your body's natural self-cleaning processes. And it's not just about what you're eating. It's also what you're putting on your skin, what you're using to clean the toilet or your countertop, for example.   [36' 45] I was like, oh no, there must be something wrong with me. And so I would start  fighting with my body the body that I have and love. Realize, there's no flawless body. We're not airbrushed in real life.   Connect with Gin  You can join her private community by going to ginstephens.com/community.     MORE Gifts from us to you.

Melanie Avalon: Avoiding Endocrine Disruptors And Toxic Skin Care Products

The B.rad Podcast

The products we put onto our skin and into our bodies every day can have a profound effect on our health. In this episode, Melanie Avalon returns to the podcast for an important discussion about the various ways endocrine disruptors, which are found in everything from skincare to soap to detergent to deodorant (and countless cosmetics, like lipstick!) pose a major health risk. As I've discussed on the show before, paying close attention to the ingredients found in every product you buy, from cleaning supplies for your home to skin and body care to laundry detergent to makeup, is one of the best things you can do for your health. Unfortunately, the amount of toxic products out there still outweighs the amount of non-toxic ones, so you have to take matters into your own hands and do your own research in order to avoid extra exposure to endocrine disruptors. In this episode, Melanie explains how certain toxic compounds interact with each other and how this can actually increase toxicity levels, why you can't just trust whatever products that claim to be “natural,” and the clean product lines she does recommend. She also reveals the connection between endocrine disruptors and carcinogens, why certain ingredients have such a profound effect on all aspects of our health, the amount of ingredients that have long been banned in Europe but are still common in America, and much more. Melanie is the host of two podcasts: The Intermittent Fasting Podcast with New York Times bestseller Gin Stephens and The Melanie Avalon Biohacking Podcast, where she interviews the world's top experts on a myriad of health and wellness topics. To listen to my previous interview with Melanie, Intermittent Fasting, A Healthy Diet Mentality, And How Both High Fat/Low Carb and High Carb/Low Fat Can Be Effective For Weight Loss, click here.   TIMESTAMPS: Melanie talks about the bad stuff we put on our body..skin care and cosmetics. [01:18] Brad changed his diet cold turkey from all the grains he was eating. [08:02] If we can just clean up our diet, we are well on our way to optimum health.  The rest is just fine tuning. [11:44] The US has about a dozen compounds that are banned compared to Europe which has banned thousands of toxins.  [13:36] If you see the word fragrance on the label, it might be because they are protecting their trade secrets (recipes). [18:51] There are endocrine disruptors which are obesogens. Carcinogens are in these products.  [20:14] Anything you put in and on your body has the potential for damage. [26:26] “Natural” isn't always safe. [32:22] Just as government's regulations do poorly on cosmetic's safety, it is the same for its overseeing food safety. [43:10] What about soy? [47:46] Because one does not feel the effects of using these products, they are unaware of what is happening in the body in the long run.  [50:40] The products that are tested and found to be very safe are available in the US when you look for them. [57:12] Some products can take the place of skin peel treatment. [59:55] Males need to pay attention to their skin drying.

I have been married for almost twenty years to a wonderful, kind-hearted man of German/Italian descent and we have three teenage kids: two daughters and a son. A few of my favorite pastimes are gardening, photography, traveling, flower arranging, taking walks in nature, reading, learning foreign languages, and just spending time with my family. I have also always loved cooking and for a few years was an avid baker and cake decorator too. Being a true foodie at heart and preparing and indulging in decadent meals and desserts all the time, weight management was always an issue for me. Considering I am only five feet tall, I don't have the luxury of carrying a lot of weight without it "showing" easily. To put it shortly, trying to become fit was a major struggle. I also told myself I loved food too much to be able to lose any weight and keep it off long term. Additionally, being pregnant three times within five years and not fully getting rid of the "baby weight" three times in a row compounded my weight problem. Eventually, I managed to reach obesity by the age of 43. I had given up trying, I didn't even own a scale anymore and had no clue what I weighed. I knew, however, that my clothing size had been steadily climbing up: from 6 to 8, to 10, to 12, reaching 14 in the summer of 2019. Then, that Christmas I ended up having to visit an orthopedist for a frozen shoulder and needed to be weighed in the doctor's office. I was shocked to find out I had reached 172lbs! I was heavier than my six-foot husband who weighed 168lbs at the time. At that moment, I knew I had to do something, soon. I happened to mention my health concerns with a family member over the Christmas holidays and he shared that he had done intermittent fasting that same year. He had successfully lost 35lbs doing IF and suggested I try it out too. I was intrigued. I had free time because I was on winter break from school, so I spent a few days watching YouTube videos on intermittent fasting, researching as much as I could, and decided to give it a try and see how it goes for me. So on January 1st, 2020 I began following a 16:8 IF protocol, eating two meals and a snack between 11AM and 6PM. The rest of the time, I drank different kinds of herbal and fruit teas and water. I April, I read "Delay, Don't Deny" by Gin Stephens and learned about the clean fast, as well as different IF protocols. I switched to strictly black or green tea, which are clean fast approved, and transitioned to a one meal a day lifestyle. I also began to really appreciate food as fuel for my body and started turning my OMAD into a special occasion that is rich in nutrients and a delight for all the senses. By October of that year I had lost 55lbs and have been maintaining that weight loss for over 15 months now. IF has truly been life changing for me!
