Several years ago my husband and I ran a full marathon together. Anyone who has run one will tell you that the 26.2 mile race is hard, but the training is even harder. The training is grueling and requires fierce discipline, but it is incredibly rewarding and worth every mile. I was fortunate to train and run the race while only having a minor flare-up of tendonitis in my knee. However, a short year later after beginning to run again, I would end up with an incredibly painful case of plantar fasciitis.

First, let’s consider the benefits of adding more activity for physical fitness to your low carb diet: – Activity helps to control weight. – Activity reduces your risk for diabetes as well as cancer and even Alzheimer’s. – Activity decreases stress and strengthens your body and mind. – Activity slows the effects of aging. All of these benefits far outweigh the negatives. In fact the only negative to physical fitness is boredom might set in and finding the time can be a real challenge. You can do the minimum recommended exercise of just 20 minutes a day, 3 times a week, or kick it up a notch and maximize the benefits and exercise at least 30 minutes a day 5-6 times a week. It’s up to you and even the smallest amount of exercise will improve your health and fitness as well as your weight loss results while on a low carb diet.
