“I feel 30 years younger!”

First For Women - - Nutrition -

Sim­ply step­ping on the scale sent Kay Gar­riott into panic mode. Oh no, not again, she cried. Not again.

Since the age of 14, Kay had watched un­wanted pounds go from “lost” to “found” more times than she could count. “I felt like I was do­ing some­thing wrong,” she says. And she be­gan to re­al­ize what her weight could cost her. “My hus­band and I want to spend for­ever to­gether. But with my health, I didn’t see that last­ing much longer.”

That’s when Kay started notic­ing the term “in­ter­mit­tent fast­ing” pop­ping up on­line. “I’d never heard of fast­ing, ex­cept for re­li­gious rea­sons,” she ad­mits. But she de­cided, “What the heck, I’ll try it. It’s free.” Fol­low­ing ad­vice from De­lay, Don’t Deny au­thor Gin Stephens, who rec­om­mends in­ter­mit­tent fast­ing and low-pro­tein days to pro­mote au­tophagy, Kay shed 3 belly inches the first two months with­out feel­ing hun­gry. She stayed on the plan and con­tin­ued to slim, plus put an end to hot flashes, joint pain and pre­di­a­betes in the process!

Kay has main­tained her weight for more than a year, with en­cour­age­ment from “Fast Club,” her in­ter­mit­tent fast­ing Face­book sup­port group.

“There are no words to ex­press how thank­ful I am,” she shares.

“I take no med­i­ca­tion, sleep like a baby and have so much energy that some­times

I don’t know what to do with my­self!”
