Do you feel frustrated that intermittent or extended day fasting isn't going to plan? Are you just too hungry to keep going? Does it clash with your work or social commitments? Alternatively, are you clueless as where to even begin?
Well, I've got some good news for you. First of all, you can make fasting work for you - if you approach it in the right way.
And secondly, it all starts with taking one step. One change, where you enter The Zone of Adventure. Of course it's a challenge - but let's make it an intrepid adventure rather than a struggle. One that makes you feel better and more empowered from the start.

Harriet's resources were critical in getting me to focus on the right things for my fast, and knowing what to expect. I felt supported and it was great to go through this process as part of a group.
Harriet changed intermittent fasting for me. Within a few weeks, my fasting windows went from variable to a consistent 20h each. My clothes feel looser, but the biggest win has been the focus during my working day.
Harriet calmed down any nerves I had about my first 24 hr fast. She was so great with me and gave me invaluable, tailor-made advice that made the whole thing easier. I am now all set for my next fast of 36 hrs!
Harriet made intermittent fasting easier for me and I actually feel more relaxed about it. She also supported me by suggesting organizational changes and reframes that are helping me to make the most of fasting. I now do different seasons of IF, which fits perfectly.

I am on the greatest health adventure of my life, and I want you to join me!
I have been coaching binge eaters since 2013 and host The Eating Coach podcast, which has had over 200,000 downloads. In 2020, lockdown brought me a strange gift in disguise. The stress of that year and all the extra things I piled on my plate meant that I literally started piling extra things on my plate.
I was The Eating Coach - but to my shame I found that I was getting more and more compulsive around food, and at times, alcohol.
In spring 2021, I turned 50, came clean about my compulsion on my podcast, and started intermittent fasting. I haven’t looked back since.
Fasting has been amazing for my mobility, mental wellbeing and surprisingly, is a powerful tool to dismantle compulsion.
Here’s the secret sauce of successful fasting:
Focus on making it as easy as possible.
I’ve done this by avoiding the tactics most people are using, instead turning to the same strategies I have been using with compulsive eaters for years: low-pressure experimentation, neutralising guilt and shame, invoking curiosity and sidestepping the temptation to downgrade it to a super diet.
If fasting were a person, most people are stuck in a bitter mediation dispute: I will deprive myself, but I want some quick fix results - or else!
To me, fasting is like dating the most fascinating, attractive person you have ever met, but one that you are initially slightly intimidated by. At the start, you worry that they are out of your league. However, with every date you relax more and more, and they get easier to be with.
I have fallen head over heels in love with fasting.
Now I want to help other people enjoy the same love affair with their health.
