I'm still learning but trying to figure out a plan to stay on this and incorporate some/very little exercising. I don't start training for my next triathlon until October so I think I'm good to go on staying low. Anyone who is past phase 1 how do you feel?
Right now I'm just tired a lot and been researching the heck out of this plan. All the reviews I have read are amazing! So far I've been doing pretty good.
Hey! Welcome to IP! I am just approaching 2 week point myself. I was REALLY tired in the beginning, but now I'm finding that I actually have more energy. I use to work out regularly myself, but I honestly don't think your body gets enough intake for that. My coach told me that if I start to get stir crazy then I can go for a long walk or a hike, but if I do so, then I need an extra IP product that day. Wish you the best of luck!
