The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting + RESTART Challenge Update

July 3, 2020

I’ve been surprised at the lack of questions regarding fasting component to our RESTART Challenge. This is a great thing because it shows how intuitive it is that we shouldn’t eat all day, every day. In case you needed some extra motivation, here are some of the benefits of Intermittent Fasting:

> It can help build healthy routines. Research and anecdotal evidence has shown that you sleep better when you  have a fasting window. It also helps you break the cycle of mindless eating-when’s the last time you had something really healthy to eat after 8 pm? And by the way, this isn’t a new concept either-where do you think the meal “breakfast” got its name from?

> Better Health. Intermittent fasting can help improve your insulin sensitivity, reduce overall calorie intake and help increase your feelings of being full.

> Learning to take control of your body. How often have you eaten a meal simply because it’s lunchtime, and not because you are hungry? It’s common to have feelings of hunger when you fast. However, once you learn to push past those initial hunger pangs, you may realize you were eating out of boredom or routine. Fasting can help you learn to eat on your own terms.


Please remember, there are extreme forms of IF out there and we don’t endorse all of them. We are trying to follow what is known as time restricted feeding that lines up with a normal circadian rhythm.



To clarify the rules, you can still get points on the weekend if you workout at 212 on Saturday or do a recorded Zoom session that day. You also get a point each day, weekends included, that you don’t eat between 8 pm and 6 am. While you only get the workout point for 212 workouts, you can get a point for drinking a protein shake after being active, even if it’snot at 212. So if you go for a hike or run on Sunday, have a protein shake after and get that point!
