What is allowed "exercise" as defined by Ideal Protein?  Since you lose weight by eating and processing foods in your muscles and liver, etc., HEAVY exercise is prohibited while on the early phases of IP due to blood sugar concerns. But this does NOT mean you have to stay in bed either! 
Log into your MY.IDEALSMART.COM app or web portal and check out the fitness videos.  These videos are a valuable tool in getting you moving with gentle excerises.  My favorite way to get moving this time of year is walking.  Get out and take in some fresh air with a walk around the block!
