My coach says only very light exercise such as Yoga or using the Vibe machines they have at the clinic. I had started working out more frequently for the three weeks before I started and was really enjoying it. I find it such a natural anti-depressant for me. Anyway, just wondering what other people have done about this aspect. Does it affect weight loss? Thanks!
I just started four weeks ago on IP and had the same questions. I have had a personal trainer for the past two years. My coach also has the same trainer so know how hard it is to do those workouts. After consultation with my coach, my naturopath and my trainer, we decided to remove all cardio but to keep my weight training 4 times a week with my trainer (I agree, I actually love my workouts and could not see stopping them -- never ever thought I would say that in my lifetime). Also, on days I train, I add my two egg whites in the morning, and an hour before workouts, I have half my protein from my supper or an unrestricted with 1 carb. I have found that this does the trick for me. I can still do my workouts and am losing about 3-4 pounds each week.
