Connie is brutally honest about her own bout with weight control and lack thereof. She also includes science to back up how IF allowed her to succeed. My only complaint is the book is repetitious. Connie is involved in online business where, I guess, the standard is to present information multiple times to make a sale. I don't think it was necessary to make her point here. I got it. That said, I admire Connie's determination and congratulate her on her achievement of a healthier lifestyle.
I have followed Connie on business advice years for years & I have learned so much from her. At the beginning of the Covid Pandemic, she announced publicly that she was trying something called Intermittent Fasting. I was intrigued & thought, "Let's see how this goes for Connie."
I love the parallels between Connie's book and the hit movie with Will Smith called Pursuit of Happyness. Connie shares some childhood stories that led to her being overweight. The book shares some very personal details of Connie's Journey to losing 120 pounds and lowering her A1C to move out of pre-diabetes. Connie's teaching style is "If I can do it so can you" this down to Earth philosophy applies to her approach to intermittent fasting.
I couldn't put this book down. Connie Ragen Green gives us a personal, sometimes raw look at her history and her struggles with weight and with health. Her ultimate triumph using Intermittent Fasting (and it is a triumph) will inspire anyone looking for an answer on the often bumpy road to health and wellness!
I love the fact that Connie always writes from her heart. Her journey with IF is nothing short of miraculous. I have read a lot about the “how” of IF but reading her personal journey was very inspiring.
Excellent book. Connie tells her life’s story in a captivating format. Intermittent Fasting has genuinely been a life-changing experience for her, and she is committed to helping others be aware of the possibilities to do the same. This is an inspiring book you will not want to stop reading to the very end. If weight management has been a problem for you, you will want to read this book!!
GREAT life-affirming afternoon read. Very encouraging book for anyone who desires to lose weight and gain better health. Connie’s writing is always authentic, educational, down to earth and easy to read. In this book she explains a simple way to get started on a success track that is easy to begin immediately. Connie is a great example of how to reach your goal as she shares her journey to let go of over 100 pounds! Congratulations Connie!
Connie has shared her inner most hurts and victories with regards to the reinvention of herself. She draws us into her life with her memories and experiences and compels us to keep reading as she overcomes obstacle after obstacle to create her best life yet! I am inspired to reinvent parts on my life.

A number of books and articles are written about IF but none like the author Connie Regan Green offers. Connie takes us along on her brutally honest life journey involving struggles with food comfort addictions and its impacts on her health and emotional well-being. I could not stop reading her gripping story. IF is not a diet but a lifestyle Connie so vividly shows us through her own story and masterfully intertwines the science behind IF. Her dramatic health shift, confirmed by her doctor, is a testimony of her commitment to gain back control of her health. Regardless of the health issues a reader faces, this book offers a valuable understanding of a healthy lifestyle adjustment for everyone in a most encouraging approach!
I have watched author Connie Ragen Green's progress and incredible success with Intermittent Fasting (IF) -- over 120 pounds lost! -- and personally know her lifelong commitment to never endorsing anything she hasn't tried herself. Her story is inspiring and empowering, and it's a great overview for anyone who is curious about IF and how it works in real life for a real person.
Connie's discussion about exactly how she applies the principles of IF to her life was especially helpful in helping me figure out how to implement it on my own. She cited many medical and expert sources, but the book was entirely accessible for any layperson, and the overall takeaway is: "If I can do this, you can too, and I want to help you." If you've despaired of other weight-loss programs, give this book and try and embrace the idea of a lifestyle change, not just another diet. The anti-aging evidence is amazing.
