No-- no adjustments for exercise, but it's a 3 week program -- sort of a kickstarter. There are defined exercises and mostly low intensity prescribed in the book, so I've been largely sticking to it. Energy is noticably lower-- so I should eat more, but I don't feel hungry (very large size meals for low cal is working wonders) and I feel accomplished having stuck to such a crazy regimen.
Even so, I am looking forward to getting to something a little more reasonable (more like 1700-1800 calories daily except on days I work-out hard) until I reach my weight goals.
The meals are actually pretty good, save for the salads which taste like... salads. But the turkey patty and the spaghetti squash marinara and the kale soup were all excellent, and the breakfasts haven't been terrible -- and I'm being much better with identifying protein sources, since each meal is intended to have 30+ g to hit a target over 100 per day even at the low calorie intake.
In all, not a great diet for any long term thing, but for a short burst, like divebombing into summertime and dedicating yourself to a new program, it's good to have a couple to three week diving in period. Eh -- mixed bag.
Thanks for the replies though. Appreciate them.
