Gin Stephens re Intermittent Fasting for Authors


Meet Gin Stephens, Intermittent Fasting Queen, author and Podcaster.

Bestselling author of “Fast. Feast. Repeat.” and “Delay, Don’t Deny,” Gin shares how Intermittent Fasting can help you stay fit and healthy for life, and sharpen your brain as a writer, author or creative.

Hear her personal story, struggling with her weight until her late 40s, finding IF as her life-saver by losing over 80 pounds and keeping it off since 2014 even through menopause.

Intermittent Fasting is not about what to eat, but when to eat, says Gin. It taps into fat stores for energy, improving metabolic flexibility. Gin suggests starting with an eight-hour eating window, like 12 pm to 8 pm.

Benefits of IF for Creatives:

Fasting leads to ketone production, providing mental clarity and enhanced focus. Autophagy during fasting contributes to cellular cleanup and overall health. Writers and creatives can benefit from prolonged focus and energy from IF practices.

Gin’s Writing Process and New Book “Cleanish”

Gin authored her latest book while fasting, leveraging mental clarity from ketosis. “Cleanish” promotes mostly clean eating and living, stemming from her son’s reactions to food additives.

Clean Fasting Rules
  • Aim to keep insulin levels low to encourage fat burning.
  • Avoid anything sweet-tasting during fasting to prevent insulin spikes.
  • Stick to plain water, black coffee, and plain tea to maintain autophagy.

Hundreds of thousands have been influenced by her books and millions by her podcasts. She tells authors: Embrace the imperfection in the creative process. When it comes to writing your book: “just do it”—don’t let the pursuit of perfection hinder progress.
