    Question Exercise anyone?

    Is anyone doing minimal exercise and still losing weight...I know it's suggested not to exercise. One of the books I am reading says 15 mins on a treadmill is ok, and light weights..would like to hear back from those that are working out.

    I am on VLCD 5 and have not done any exercise yet because I wanted to see how I felt first on the HHCG. So far so good and I am thinking of adding exercise to the mix to see how it goes. I have felt really good the last four days. Day 1 on VLCD I went to bed hungry and with a headache but havent had that problem since then. My favorite exercises are spin, zumba and running. Spin may be too much on the VLCD since I burn about 700 cals doing that so I think I will stick to zumba and walking or possibly running. Good luck
    Nobody said it would be easy, just that it would be worth it.

    Please, please, please be careful if you choose to exercise while in P2. One of my friends is an RN and was explaining how when a person is on a ketogenic diet (hcg is a type of this diet - meaning very few or next to no carbs) and forcing the body to feed off of the fat, a person starts to excrete ketones. This can sometimes cause ketoacidosis if a person isn't drinking enough water to flush theses acids out (the ketones). However, when a person is exercising on a ketogenic diet aka: the hcg diet in our case, this ALSO causes an increase in the ketones that are released hence increasing the change of possibly experiencing ketoacidosis.

    What are the warning signs of ketoacidosis?
    Ketoacidosis usually develops slowly. But when vomiting occurs, this life-threatening condition can develop in a few hours. Early symptoms include the following:

    •Thirst or a very dry mouth
    •Frequent urination
    •High blood glucose (sugar) levels
    •High levels of ketones in the urine

    Then, other symptoms appear:
    •Constantly feeling tired
    •Dry or flushed skin
    •Nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
    (Vomiting can be caused by many illnesses, not just ketoacidosis. If vomiting continues for more than 2 hours, contact your health care provider.)
    •A hard time breathing (short, deep breaths)
    •Fruity odor on breath
    •A hard time paying attention, or confusion

    Ketoacidosis is dangerous and serious. If you have any of the above symptoms, contact your health care provider IMMEDIATELY, or go to the nearest emergency room of your local hospital.
