Kim and Ryan, also know as "The Super Shrinking Smiths," have been together since 2003. As they ate their way through the first decade of married life, they gained over 200 pounds. In 2014, Ryan started a weight loss journey, followed by Kim in 2015. In 2017, they found intermittent fasting and it changed everything. Their first co-authored book "Unbelievable Freedom: How We Transformed Our Health and Happiness with Intermittent Fasting" was published in October 2018.
Kim has a passion for encouraging others through her message of radical self-acceptance and everyday joy. She is a mom to a 22-year-old son and a 19-year-old daughter. She currently works in the healthcare field and enjoys running the Facebook group, "Fasting, Feasting, FREEDOM with Kim & Ryan."
Ryan has been a teacher of high school English for over two decades. He is committed to bringing a love of reading and writing to his students. He enjoys hiking, yoga, cooking and sharing his intermittent fasting lifestyle with others.
Before discovering intermittent fasting, the Smiths were struggling on a diet that helped them shed pounds but didn't feel sustainable long-term. They grappled with food cravings, cheating and regaining weight in what felt like an endless cycle.
That's when they discovered "Delay, Don't Deny" by Gin Stephens, and decided to make this permanent lifestyle change. Now, they've written about their experience so that others around the globe can reach their goals, too.
