  • Has anyone continued running while on HCG

    I am currently jogging around 3 miles, 3 times a week. Do I need to stop this. I have never worked out on the diet, but would like to continue my training. Does anyone have experience with this? Should I increase my protein? I don't want to stall.

    You can continue your exercise. Dr. Simeons says so in the section of P&I entitled, "Other Reasons For a Gain".

      I often work out on P2 as well, you just have to up your protein so you don't stall or gain.

          I think that seems to be a mystery. I'm adding 30 grams right now to run 20-30 minutes 3X a week. I haven't stalled. I might need more; I just don't know. Anyone else?

            I'd be interested to know too. I'm doing some running at the fitness boot camp I go to (been going for over a year now) and I *think* I need more protein. This has been "hell week" and we're going more insane than normal so I'm feeling it.

                I'm actually starting to run again and have been simply increasing my calories. I add another 100 g protein as well as eat the second apple and perhaps some more breadsticks about every 2-3 days. So far I haven't felt fatigued by exercising and bumping up my intake slightly to compensate. BUT, I realize I'm experimenting so it will be interesting to see what my fat-muscle ratio test shows at the end of the month!
                Week 1: down 6 pounds
                Week 2: down 4
                Week 3, day 1: down 0
                , day 2: UP 2

                Start wt: 164
                Realistic goal: 140
                Fairy godmother goal: 130

                  I started phase 2 last week and went for a quasi-power walk on day 4 of vlcd. Typically, this is something I really like to do and usually can go for a long while at a good pace. However, that is when I'm on 1200 calories a day or more. I noticed with this vlcd that if I do much more than an easy, slow pace, I quickly become light-headed and dizzy. Just remember that your body is operating on a LOT less readily available fuel, so be VERY careful. I would start with a short, quick paced walk and see how your body does. Let it talk to you and tell you what it needs- because you're right, if you don't eat enough calories, your body will stall the weight loss and other awful things.

                    I've been running the entire time. 3 miles or so 3-4 times/week. I tend to gain at least a pound the next day BUT I also just noticed that I also seem to eat beef on those days and that could have been the cause as well (thanks Colleen/Grammy!). Yesterday, I did 3 miles but ate tilapia and crab as my protein for the day. Today I'm down a pound. I also increase my water intake quite a bit on the days I work out. Of course, ymmv.

                      You have already conditioned your body to run. Listen to your body and decrease speed, distance, or interval as needed. I am still running, weight training, and doing Zumba. I find that my recovery time is longer. I am already following the higher calorie plan due to being hypoglycemic, so I attribute the extra protein to eliminating any other after effects.
