    Hi all. The good news is yesterday (day four) I went into ketosis and feel much better.:D

    So I decided to go out cycling today. I haven't been out on the bike for about a month but was cycling regularly before that. Today I really struggled and after about 3 miles got quite light headed. I used to do about 16 miles no probs.:(

    I really want to carry on cycling and build up to the level I was at before Xmas. Has anyone got any advice? I am doing total solution. I thought maybe having a bar before going on the bike may be a good idea as the extra carbohydrate might help - or even having 2 bars and a shake on cycling days, although I don't want to get out of ketosis.
    Does anyone else exercise and how do you manage?

    I can't help with the question but I'm interested in your answers as I was a keen cyclist, and would very much like to be again once I've lost a couple of stone.

    ............I would imagine that you would be better having the bar before the exercise as it will probably sustain you for longer. Exante recommend only 1 x bar a day because of the higher carb content but I somehow think if your exercise regime is quite vigorous then you quite possibly may need those extra carbs but if it will knock you out of ketosis I don't know. It may be a suck it and see sort of situation. Good luck xx

    I would certainly try an extra pack and some extra fluids before cycling. I dont know about exante but on CD they dont recomend excercise like that for at least a week, day 4 and your boady is maybe still adjusting even if you are in K.

    Let us know how it goes :)

    The last time around i was cycling to work everyday on TS which was about 12 miles, and i found that for the first 2 weeks i never had that much strength/stamina but after a couple of weeks this started to improve as the body settles down to the new way of being fuelled. So my advice on personal experience is dont over-do the cycling/exercise with in the 1st couple of weeks of doing TS.

    Thankyou all for your advice. I think I did just do a bit much a bit soon. Think I'll try having a bar before I go out on the bike next time. I've always been keen on exercise (a fat exercise junkie !!!!!) and don't really want to give up.

    I've had a look around the site and there seems to be lots of different opinions about exercise and vlcds. Just wondered if anyone found exercise affected weight loss?
