Question: Can I exercise while on the 10 Day Transformation?
Answer: After day 3 most people do have enough energy to exercise, if you find that you don’t then we recommend decreasing the level of exercise as opposed to not exercising at all. 600 calories will not support heavy workouts. Best to only do light exercise (depending on how you feel) during the 10 days. Jumping on a mini-trampoline along with other light movements, while deep breathing, is a great way to flush out the lymphatic system.
Exercise is a form of stress and stress is stress. Too much exercise is too stressful and very counterproductive; strenuous exertion should be avoided at this time. To ensure best results we suggest cutting down to 15 minutes per day on days 1 – 4 and then increasing to 30 minutes per day for days 5 – 10. Exercise is considered a stress event and causes the adrenals to pump cortisol which is part of a fight and flight response… the body does not release in this mode. Give your body a break for 10 days if you can.
If your job is one with a lot of physical activity or mental stress, you should add extra Flex items every day and perhaps even another shake if needed or more Master Aminos.
