While on Phase 2, Dr. Simeons says this on page 26 of Pounds & Inches:
"...the weight can temporarily increase..... after a exceptional physical exertion of long duration leading to a feeling of exhaustion.
A game of tennis, a vigorous swim, a run, a ride on horseback or a round of golf do not have this (above) effect; but a long trek, a day of skiing, rowing or cycling or dancing into the small hours usually result in a gain of weight." (emphasis added)
We will add to that – if possible, walk in the sunshine.
If you have been on an exercise program before you started this protocol, you may continue to do it, but if possible, omit the cardio for the time while you are on Phase 2.
If you do continue doing your workouts - you may need to increase your protein calories on those days. Up to a maximum of 250 calories more per day.
Phase 3 – we have found that if you do not already have an exercise routine established, it works best to allow your weight to stabilize before adding one in while on P3. Once your weight has been stable – go ahead and begin slowly, working your way up to your desired routine.
