“I feel 30 years younger!”
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!”
