For exercise, I wouldn't worry about that right now. For most very obese people, the initial weight loss from low carb is fairly rapid. In addition, exercise can stress already overburdened joints. That said, rowing seems fairly safe as well as... (more)

If you're eating VLC for fat-loss, I'm not sure loss of appetite is a problem unless you're already at your goal-weight. Ketosis can cause nausea until you get used to it, and it can take more than three weeks to become fully adapted. Eating in... (more)

You might be losing fat but gaining muscle, which is heavy. Nevertheless, if you want quicker results, ditch the dried apricots, fruits (other than berries), and nuts for a couple of weeks to see if that helps. Fruits and nuts make me gain weight.... (more)
