I personally think you should take it easy as far as exercise is concerned, i got light headed really easily. However after a few weeks i did toning exercises and lots of sit ups/crunches, they have really helped my tum xx

Hiya Lottie, I have trained 3 or more times a week whilst on LT. But I have always worked out, so it was nothing new to me. It's just much, much easier now that I am almost 3st lighter. If u are not used to exercise, then I would take it easy. Personally, I have never had as much energy as I have now and my stmina has improved tenfold! Whatever u decide to do, take it easy and listen to ur body. Also drink extra water to replace the water u loose during exercise.

Yeah toning is defo important to me. I have been using firming body creams as well as bio oil which I have been told is great for the elasticity of the skin. Has anyone who has lost a lot of weight had a problem with excess skin????

I dont think it should really be a problem as I only have 3st to loose but has anyone came across this?? Any tips???

Whilst on VLCD you don't want to be doing too much exercise...certainly if you haven't done much prior to starting the diet. As your muscles have no glycogen in them, they are more likely to rip and tear, so avoid lifting heavy weights.

I do the gym three times a week. Usually manage 20 minutes in the jacuzzi and another 20 int he steamroom lol. Seriously though, I don't think I could find the energy at the moment to do something more strenuous. Juliax :D
