I was doing a 5k training plan before I started with CD (and then had to stop for two weeks before I damaged my back). However, now I am following an Intermediate 10k plan and it is really helpful.

Running isn't a great way to lose weight as it puts a lot of pressure on your body and if there aren't enough calories it doesn't search for them it just slows your performance. However, I have found it wonderful for monitoring the changes in my body e.g. stride and general overal lean mass.

I adore walking though and that definately helps with the old weight loss and cycling. If you are close enough to the shops / work to walk or cycle I would recommend it. It's addictive though; as soon as you realise how much money you can save by not using petrol or public transport!!!

Be warned though - you will spend more on buying new clothes for your slinky new body!

I'd thoroughly recommend it. I usually walk for about an hour & a half - no idea how far but its at a fairly gentle pace as i normally have my two toddlers with me. I'd def have the energy to go at a moderate pace though - some days i'd really love to step it out lol

You walk that a day??? Hour and a half?
I've just walked for 20 minutes and am shattered, although to be fair I am only in day 3 and I dont know if Ketosis has fully kicked in yet, all I know is it has left me with a thumping headache! ???

Most days if the weather is kind - but dont forget how long it takes little toddler legs to get anywhere lol If i was walking the same distance on my own without the gruesome twosome in tow I'd probably do it in half that time ;)

Hope you feel better very soon - maybe it was a bit much for you in your first few days of CD? But i'd say next week when you're in the swing of the diet & feeling more energised you'll be able to manage a fairly brisk walk without too many problems.

Yep - I quit smoking 2 weeks ago and was wondering today if the choice od doing CD and quitting smoking together was a bit silly. I am really craving food but wonder if it's a cigarette I actually need???
Keep thinking about going to buy some.......

i walk for about an hour once or twice a day, often my wee girls strapped in her chair ( shes disabled ) or if we go minus the chair then she takes a few steps on the harness and then ive a 10kg weight to carry for the duration ( surely that must help tone my arms or something, lol )

Hi girls,
I walk between 3 and 5 miles a day and am loving it. Apart from some crunches, situps and pushups a few times a week that is the only exercise I do but it works wonders..

Hi Loulabella, don't give in to the addiction monster in your head. He is stamping his feet and having a tantrum because he is in the process of dying and he will do anything he can to get you to light a cig. A few more days and he will be dead, don't give in. We can do this together, I had an addiction to red wine, but havent touched a drop in 8 days. I gave up cigs a few years ago, but I kept thinking about the addiction monster in my head, and how I can control him, not the other way round. Dont let him win.
