Frequently Asked Questions
CAN I EXERCISE?
Yes, however strenuous exercise is not recommended on a very low-calorie part of the program (Step 2). Its best to stick to low key exercise like walking for 20 to 30 minutes a day and a few body weight exercises. By exercising you burn extra calories which causes hunger. The combination of low calories and exercise may cause your body to go into starvation mode causing you to hold weight. This may have a negative impact on your stamina and commitment to the program. So, take it easy!!! Normal exercise regimes may be undertaken in Step 3. If you are already doing a strenuous exercise regime talk to us and we can work out the program to suit your needs as well.
WILL IT BE SUSTAINABLE?
During Step 1 and 2 you will learn how to eat correctly. In Stage 3 we reintroduce dairy, carbohydrates and good fats.
