Original email for context: I want to keep moving toward my goal and right now I am attending the gym M-W–F for what I call an easy work through, as opposed to a workout Get it? Can I continue, without impeding my weight loss using hCG?
I like that you said easy. :)- In general most people are wanting to know if they continue their fairly intense workouts on hCG and this often backfires for women. My full article on exercise and P2 things to think about if you haven’t see it already is here.
Ultimately, for any type of exercise whether easy or difficult, it really comes down to seeing how your unique body responds. Some who do light stuff like say a daily walk with their dog, find that this keeps their weight loss regular or seems to speed it up. And that may very well be true.
Most important is that being sure that whatever type of activity you choose to do, gauge how you feel physically afterwards. If you feel pretty good and continue on as normal the rest of your day or the next day, then for you this may be a reasonable demand on your body while doing the diet.
If however you feel super worn out afterwards and suddenly feel like both eating more and napping at the same time, this is your body telling you, woa, back off, too much there partner.
One little extra thing I’ll add is that for me, I found that taking a leisurely evening walk with my husband around the neighborhood on P2, always yielded a stall the next day of zero weight loss. However, I’m not saying this means it was bad – but even walking causes water retention and that can make your timeframe of seeing your fat loss results on the scale be delayed a little- so it’s more a matter of if you are emotionally/mentally up to dealing with that, or if you just really need to see a loss on the scale the next day to stay motivated to stick to the diet, in that case that might be a day to just lay low “cleanse” style.
I hope this helps you decide! Remember, if you are doing not extreme, it doesn’t usually hurt to experiment just a little and see your own results, because we really are all different.
