Default Exercise on Phase 1

Hello everyone,
My coach mentioned that after the first 3 weeks of Phase 1 you could actually start working out but not any strenuous exercises.

Is anyone on Phase 1 working out? If yes, what kinds?

just have to say I was working out running 3-4 miles 4 days a week with extra packet but the scale was only moving 1-1.6 lbs a week. this week I gave it a rest and 5 lbs magically left the building. Good luck.

I swam and did weights. I did not do sprints, more steady state swimming. Same with weights, did not do real heavy, the most I did was 15 pound dumbbells which for me is light.

After about a month my body was burning keotones well and exercise got easier.

Thanks for the responses. I feel more energetic after 3 weeks so I thought I will start Elliptical may be start out with 20 mins and take it from there.
I was worried that exercise will slow down the IP diet program.

I will try to do the elliptical only 15 mins daily at a very low heart rate! We'll see how it goes :-) my coach told me to do half of my usual workout and mo weight training because it shows lower loss on the scale (at least for the beginning)

True.. I read in many threads here that if you exercise in phase 1 atleast for a little bit somehow it benefits maintenance phase may be the fact that we get used to working out or the exercise will probably help us with watching calories etc
