    Weight training/toning on VLCD

    I'm on the Cambridge diet which restricts my calorie intake to around 450 calories.

    Having done this for a while now and down to my last three stones, I really need to tone up.

    So I've hired a personal trainer to help me tone up so we are doing weights training. He has restricted me to protein and veg only.

    But I really want to stick to my Cambridge diet to try and lose at least 1.5 by the end of aug.

    Has anyone ever done weight training on a VLCD?

    Should I stick to his plan or not?

    I'm really sceptical if I can reach my goal on his diet and anyone experience/opinion is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Eating 450 cals a day and weight training is probably the worst thing you could do

    Sounds medically unsafe. Check with your GP if in doubt.
