So reaching out to any and all of you to tell me about your weight loss while exercising etc.
Wow... I would recommend the alternative protocol for you... basically the same as the regular protocol but every day you have 1 little serving of a carb, 1 fruit, and 1 fat. One with each meal. However, if you cannot stop working out so much, IP may not be the program for you. It is actually not really safe to work out so much on such a low-carb, low-calorie diet. Although it seems depressing, it is usually worth it to put the exercise on hold just while you burn the fat, and then add it back in to your routine towards the end. You'll gain your strength back quite quickly when you add carbs back into your diet.
