I am restarting the SBD after two unsuccessful and disappointing months on the Atkins diet. I have been working out pretty intensely for about a month now, and I was wondering if I might be overdoing it. I run 5km a day, 5 - 6 days a week, as well as doing 45 mins of power/core yoga each day.
I was eating quite a bit of fat, as per the Atkins recommendations, and in almost two months I've only lost about 3 pounds (!). I need to lose about 25 lbs to get within my health BMI range.
I'm fairly confident that I'll have more success with SBD (I lost about 15 lbs on SBD a few years ago), but I am curious about the exercise side of things. Could I be sabotaging my dieting efforts by running so much, or should the exercise help?
Any advice would be appreciated!
