Being active is an important part of any healthy low carb lifestyle. When you reach Phase 2 of the Atkins plan, we recommend you take up some exercise. If you exercise currently and are following Phase 1, feel free to carry on. Not only does it help burn even more fat, but it can brings lots of other lovely benefits like improved mood and mobility. If you have any questions about the type and amount of exercise you should be doing, you can ask our exercise expert.
