Eat Stop Eat and Intermittent Fasing

Kelly Olexa's post about intermittent fasting inspired me to come over here and post something.I am passionate about the fasting. I found Eat Stop Eat 2 years ago and it changed my life. I am no longer stressed about food. I could go on and on, but buy the book. It is worth it.

I have also used the Leangains intermittent fasting program and had great results with a training and nutrition program from Martin Berkhan.

What I will do is show what intermittent fasting accomplished.

I started out like this:
Not too horrible, but with too much bodyfat for my liking.

This is me today, 2 years later. It did not take 2 years to get here, but it is easy to stay here.

I am 45 years old and have been at this for what I consider my whole life. It does not get easier to stay lean. It gets harder, but the fasting has been the way to go for me. I am not selling anything or do I profit from writing this. I just want people to know that there is another way and it is worth a try.


  1. OMG! Jennifer, I hopped over here to check on your blog and had no idea THIS was you! I remember finding your blog a while ago and loving it...I probably stopped checking in because you weren't posting! Awesome!! So good to hear from someone that loves it and we are the same ages too...Yaya!!

  2. I am so excited about finding this Blog. I fast too and its so wonderful who find other people! I am still real heavy.. but it's coming off! I'm gonna be like you when I "grow up (or is it down)" IF has given me hope - that I can get to my goal white in spite of my thyroid issue!


  3. Great job on using ESE!!

    Keep up the good work and hope you learn German soon.


  4. Wow. 3 comments. I am motivated to do more posts. It is fun to get feedback. Thank you, Kelly, Micheal and Katrina.

    IF is great. I didn't realize it has been 2 years. I have to say it has been pretty effortless. I used to be pretty focused on food and my feelings around it. And that robbed me of plenty of good times. No longer. I can honestly say that it has been since I started fasting that I stopped obsessing.

    Katrina, keep at it. You will get there. I used to have thyroid issues and all I can say is that you can do alot for yourself with that. Just be aware. I will save that drama for another post.
