As a Physical Therapist Assistant with a background in sports medicine and the author of the HCG Diet Gourmet Cookbook series, I get asked often about exercise. Can I? Should I? What exercises are best in the HCG Phase 2 ? In What phases can I get back to my my regular work out? I’m working out every day why has my weight loss stalled? I am a proponent of some form of regular exercise at a level that is safe and comfortable for you.
During this time on the HCG Phase 2, Avoid exercising excessively as directed by Dr. A.T.W Simeons in Pounds and Inches as heavy exercise can stall weight loss. Likely due to the lactic acid released by the muscles interfering with the release of fat and fluids. Feel free to exercise, move, and stretch during the HCG Phase 2. After you transition to the HCG Diet Phase 3, you may wish to begin or resume higher intensity sculpting and toning exercises, cardiovascular and sport activities.. Before and after the HCG Phase 2 is time to get back to your normal exercise routine (or start a new one) when the critical weight loss phase 2 is over.
