Intermittent fasting is a popular approach to weight loss and overall health that has gained significant attention in recent years. One of the key aspects of intermittent fasting is that it promotes intuitive eating. This intuitive eating approach is a stark contrast to the constant struggle that many people experience with their eating habits. In this episode, I sit down with Gin Stephens, a Bestselling Author and an Expert in Intermittent Fasting, to discuss the power of intermittent fasting for women in their second season of life.
Gin’s personal experience and expertise shed light on the transformative effects of intermittent fasting. She breaks down the misconceptions and provides valuable insights into how fasting can positively impact our health and well-being. Her refreshing perspective on body positivity resonates deeply. She reminds us that we are all beautifully unique and that embracing our bodies as they are is the key to self-acceptance and self-love. No more striving for a “perfect” body – it’s time to embrace and celebrate what we’ve got!

We cover everything from the best way to get to know your loved ones to how fasting can positively impact your physical and mental health during menopause. Gin’s knowledge and passion for this subject are truly inspiring, and I know you’ll gain a wealth of wisdom from our conversation.

“All of that stuff going to a truly clean fast was so transformational for me that I just really wanted to share it with everybody. So that’s really my life’s mission. I just don’t want people to fast. I want people to fast clean and see the difference between what they might have done before when they thought they were fasting and what the clean fast can really do for you.” – Gin Stephens
“And my goal is for people to learn to appreciate their body, to learn to work with it and to know that we get a lot farther by loving our bodies than hating them.” – Gin Stephens
