Dieters are used to programs requiring special workouts and activity schedules, but it's not that way when you diet with hCG 1234®. Exercise is allowed, but not required, to complete the Four Phases of the hCG 1234® diet. You shouldn't do heavy cardio or weightlifting, especially during the Low Calorie portion of the diet, Phase 2. Tai chi, yoga, and walking are perfect for the hCG Exercise needs. Your daily activity is enough to burn calories, and strenuous activity while eating just 500 calories could make you fatigued and burn muscle mass instead of adipose fat tissue.
For those who are used to working out and wish to continue, there are 800 and 1200 calorie plans based on the same protocol of select healthy foods made famous by Dr. Simeons. They include these same foods in higher portions, which is also an option for those who find that while dieting with hCG 1234®. Exercise on the job requires more energy than they have.
