    Interesting and informative if you can stand her voice
    I’ve learned so much about intermittent fasting just from listening to this podcast however Gins voice is grating and sounds forced not genuine. A lot of times when I listen I feel like she is just waiting for her guest to take a breath so she can jump in and say something that we probably heard her say on several other shows which is my husband does that or this is what I would do or this is what I used to do and it’s like Jen we know your story we already like you you don’t have to prove yourself anymore. Her laugh sounds forced and she should do a little more prescreening with her guests because sometimes they are people who have only done intermittent fasting for two or three months. On one hand I absolutely love this podcast because I learned so much about intermittent fasting from it but on the other hand the more I listen to it the more insufferable Gin becomes.

    My Weekly Treat
    I absolutely love listening to these stories. I look forward to my walks with my dog because I get to listen to these podcasts. It is a part of my weekly joy. These stories are so fun to listen to and I love hearing everyone’s different journeys.

    Inspirational 🌸
    I really enjoy listening to the Intermittent Fasting Conversations. Have gone back and started with the very first three times now. One a day, on my morning walks. Each journey is inspirational. I can relate to many and consider this podcast and integral component on my wellness journey. Excellent for a person considering IF or a seasoned Faster. Thank you so much for sharing your stories!

    Best Motivation Ever
    I love listening to this podcast. It is my first podcast I have ever listened to. It is so wonderful to hear everyone’s testimonials and tips to live and IF lifestyle. I binge listened to them all and now I can’t wait for the next weeks episode to come out!!!

    Guests need more vetting
    Gin is a good interviewer and good listener with a great personality. Each show takes the direction of the person being interviewed, and this is where things can go either way. Some of the people who come on the show are just insufferable-didactic, no sense of humor, promoting their own podcast or life coaching or whatever. Some of the people are funny and genuine and others are...not! So I’d say I feel like listening to the show guests a little over half the time. The others? Delete!

    Gin is the real deal!
    I am an intermittent faster who gets so much inspiration and encouragement from these real life, real people stories. I look forward to each week’s episode and often revisit older ones. Gin has a friendly, conversational style that makes guests and listeners comfortable yet she keeps the pace flowing without much deviation from the topic. She is informed and educated but not too lofty to be understood — perfect combo!
  • bringbacktheoldpodcasts
    Gin - please get back on track!!
    I have enjoyed these podcasts very much .. but really only the earlier versions. This current podcast with Lucy Marsden is just awful. I dial in to learn of someone’s personal experience with IF. How did they start, what was their journey like, what was their weight chance. Real information that can keep me motivated and informed. I don’t really want to hear long discussions about someone’s teaching experience, vacations, or what they did last summer. I actually stopped listening to the newer podcasts and have gone back to starting with the first one. Gin - please get back to your original format and stop all the extra (long) chit chat!!

    Love it
    I love hearing everyone’s stories and all the different ways fasting has changed peoples lives.
  • Napagirl83
    Episode 114 with Todd White plays as 113 With Kim
    I’m looking forward to listening to Todd White but all I get is Episode 113 with Kim. Is this a glitch that can be fixed?
  • Baby Spinach
    Podcast great but please change announcer
    Absolutely fantastic podcast but this new male announcer has a very jarring voice and is quite unpleasant to listen to. Let’s go back to how it was before???
  • NJW777
    Helpful, insightful and Encouraging
    I have listened to your IF podcasts with Melanie and just started this podcast. For some reason I decided to jump around. Your interview with Dr. Rob Jones was so enlightening. At the end of the episode he says that worrying about your weight is a form of atheism and that you don’t believe God cares about your weight or wants you to be healthy, he goes on to say good health is your birthright... that moment brought such breakthrough and a breakdown of a negative mindset. Thank you for this podcast.

    LATEST Episode 128
    Gin, I know you are at the beach house and the sound quality will not be as great as your podcast studio, but you really need to use a quieter pen (or some thing that sounds like a pen). I can hear you writing the entire time Miss Barry is talking and it’s very distracting.
  • jenicholtns
    Nutritionists and dietitians listen up!
    I loved the podcast with Amber, a nutritionist. Her journey to IF was inspiring and her continued work with patients a f recommending intermittent fasting to them is exactly what so many in the medical field need to hear. IF is the way to age with dignity and not let end of life disease consume us.
  • Dittobrooks
    20 minutes of ads
    This podcast is really good when they highlight other people’s stories. However, there are a ton of advertisements and self-promotion. Just about everything they talk about is sponsored.
  • granna18
    Love listening
    This is a great podcast with a variety of guests. Everyone’s story is different but Gin does a great job of pulling out the nuggets of each story. Interesting and informative but easy to listen. After I read her book, Fast Feast Repeat, this podcast has been very helpful to hear different stories and experiences. A favorite!
  • Nephirocks
    I’m a new IFer and these stories inspire me! It reminds me of why I’m fasting. Maybe someday Gin will interview me and I can inspire a new IFer!
  • JennaIowa1987
    Inspirational!! ❤️
    I stumbled upon this podcast as I have been wanting to lose weight I have gained over the past 2 years. I have been struggling with motivation on eating healthier and started intermittent fasting about 3 weeks ago. I have been following it for 3 weeks now and down 12 lbs. I can’t wait to buy the book and read that. Thank you for such a great podcast! Love to listen to it while working from home.

    Nicole Poirier interview aired November 19,2020
    The Intermittent Fasting lifestyle has transformed my life-mindy, body and spirit! I’m always eager for Gin Stephens to release her weekly interview. Some I find great value for my personality and outlook. Gin’s interview with Nicole was stellar! Nicole gives balanced and well-rounded insight. Thank you! Lois Heron
  • G-MA Ph.D.
    Not for me
    Love Gin but this interview was SO uncomfortable and verges on anorexic behavior “size 2, extra small” - can’t wait to lose more...not good. LOVE IF, LOVE your newest book...but not this particular interview!!
  • erickadowning
    Love listening!
    I I absolutely love listening to your podcast. I’m always so excited when I see there is a new episode. Thank you so much for sharing your story and others. You are very inspirational. I am 12 weeks into Fasting and have become obsessed listening to other faster!

    This podcast MOTIVATES and Teaches IF
    I absolutely love this podcast!! I listen to the episodes over and over, and share with my friends.
  • Joe Joe chris thang
    Episode 115
    Thank you for all that you do! I love listening to your podcasts. I must say though, I feel like you’re getting more and more away from interviewing people with true intermittent fasting stories. This episode in particular seemed like an advertisement for your books. It appeared you were being interviewed yourself and not the other way around. I appreciate when you bring on healthcare professionals and such. However, please consider getting back to your roots of interviewing people who have struggled with losing weight and such. Their stories are what motivate the general listeners. Thank you. PS I have been listening to this podcast since the very first episode.
  • thecraftaddict
    So inspirational
    I absolutely love this podcast & try to listen every day. You get a wealth of information along with inspiration. Gin really knows her stuff & her way if clean fasting really works!

    The episode is labeled Todd white but it’s the same episode from the previous week??
  • Fienflahcu
    My favorite podcast!
    Gin does a great job interviewing real people. The stories are inspiring!
  • Momfasting
    Love, love, love!
    I never leave reviews, but this podcast is just amazing! I am always inspired and learn something, as each person interviewed has walked their own path with fasting and has valuable experience to share. Thank you Gin for putting this together and for all you do.
  • Trucker Jeff
    Huge fan but getting smaller
    There aren’t words for the appreciation I have for Gin Stephens! I’ve listened to every episode, read the books and am currently binge listening to another podcast Gin host. I’ve adopted this lifestyle and I clean fast. I’ve lost nearly 30lbs in 2 1/5 months but it’s not just about the weight loss, it’s about the amazing health benefits each and every episode bares testimony to. Thanks Gin! I’ve listened to many of the episodes multiple times and her fb group is a great help!
  • Mom9261
    Found my forever lifestyle
    I've tried low carb, carnivore even croissant diet . Lost weight but was it was creeping back. I'm so excited using clean daily intermittent fast (22:2 most days) I've lost 4# in a week and loving cooking again with foods I haven't eaten in 3 years.
  • RachelC327
    This podcast motivated me!
    I had never heard of IF until I found this podcast. It helped me lose the last 14 pounds of my weight loss journey and am now at a healthy weight and BMI. Thanks!!!!!!
  • itstena
    Motivation Galore!
    This is by far the best IF podcast! I followed IF for months before the Corona Virus and did great (lost 40 lbs.)! Because of staying home more during the quarantine, I started eating out of boredom and my honesty pants were not happy. I’m back on board and listening to the podcasts more. The hardest thing for me is that I work 7, 10 hour nights as a pharmacist and have 7 nights off. It’s my days off that I want to snack more, so I could use suggestions. My work days I sleep during the day and work at night, so the easiest plan for me that week is OMAD. My 92 year old mom lives with me so I find we order out more because I don’t always have time to cook. Help!
  • Sarah Heyer
    One of the best If podcasts!
    Only second to Gins other podcast with Melanie Avalon. The stories are so inspirational. IF is lIFe ;)

    Fasting is My Magic Pill
    Great podcast. I love Gin Stephens! She explains everything in a plain and simple way with a southern twist. Fasting has changed my life. No more counting calories, buying diet pills, going to meetings, etc. This way of life can’t get any more simpler. Hearing the stories of people who have struggled with their weight and have overcome it with IF is so inspirational. It really keeps me on track everyday.
  • MickeyM1234
    Love the podcast, but not the episode 98
    I normally love love love this podcast. This episode didn’t focus on a regular person’s fasting story, so this particular episode of this podcast wasn’t for me. Check out other fasting stories to hear from real people and their fasting journeys. This guest would have been much better suited to Gin’s other podcast with Melanie Avalon or on Melanie’s bio-hacking podcast.

    IF 4 Life
    I am so glad I found this podcast. These stories are helping me and have made such an impact on my life. Gin has walked the walk so can talk the talk.
  • 74beck
    Sooo Good
    I just listened to episode 89 with Emiko Prigmore. It was so good. This is the kind of attitude I want to have in my life. I am so grateful for this podcast and this is one if the best guests. I am going to listen to it again right now to let it sink in. This is a great podcast to remind you we are all different and how our bodies change is different, but there is someone out there that has gone through what you are going through. Keep listening.
  • The RayZ
    The Intermittent Fasting Podcast
    Melanie and Gin are incredible. These ladies have helped to finally begin to lose weight in years, very difficult for a woman 65 years young! Melanie and Gin give excellent information and in valuable suggestions to help stay focused. Bless you ladies i greatly appreciate your time and efforts.
  • ratyler
    Love this podcast. Gin and Melanie are full of great information and tips of how to make this lifestyle work for you. I love the reader questions because they address problems that real people are experiencing!
  • ME197645
    Awesome podcast
    I love IF and this podcast is a must as you go through the journey and learn this new way of life. Gin is wonderful and she has changed my life. Each person she interviews gives me other tips for IF and their stories are so relatable. These are real every day people making themselves the best they can be!
  • littleblu2020
    So motivating
    I love this podcast. Been listening since the beginning. Hearing everyone’s story brings me so much motivation. I love that Gin also shares her stories with the guests. On days that I’m struggling, I know I can listen to these IF “friends” and get right back on track. All of the diversity in these stories shows that IF can really work for everyone in one way or another. I am constantly having ah-hah moments listening and want all my family and friends to listen too! Keep up the great stories. I hope one day to share my story too!
  • Peachygirl46

  • Kaanel
    The Best Podcast Ever
    Love this show its great. I have listened to every episode and have a hard time waiting for new ones every week. I really like the format in which questions are asked and answered. I love that the host have independent opinions that they are not afraid to share and disagree on. Real life situations are explored which make every episode different, interesting and informative. This show is what keeps me going week on my own journey.

    I love Gin’s podcast! I implement IF strategies in my practice as a registered dietitian with a lot of success. I’ve had to unlearn everything I was taught about weight loss. Gins podcast and books have helped me to better understand fasting and I recommend them to my patients all the time!
  • profmcg
    Thank you for interviewing Chantel. Her approach is helping me deal with binging during eating window. Glad she became a convert to clean fast!
  • tgiun
    Love the podcast. Didn’t like the show with Chantel. It felt like she fighting with gin. I don’t want to listen to her podcast.
