Gin Stephens, author of the bestselling Delay, Don't Deny, has been living the intermittent fasting (IF) lifestyle since 2014. Since then, she's lost over eighty pounds and launched her IF website, four online support groups, four self-published books, and two top-ranked podcasts--Intermittent Fasting Stories and The Intermittent Fasting Podcast. A graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition's Health Coach Training Program (2019), she also earned a Doctor of Education degree in Gifted and Talented Education (2009), a Master's degree in Natural Sciences (1997), and a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (1990). She taught elementary school for twenty-eight years, and has worked with adult learners in a number of settings. She splits her time between Augusta, Georgia and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where she lives with her husband and their four cats. Gin is also a mother to two adult sons (and she is thankful every day for the intermittent fasting lifestyle that makes her life easier).
