Prior to going on HCG I lifted weights (2-3 time a week) and ran at least 20-25 miles a week. I stopped all exercising while on HCG. I am about to start Phase 3 and I am itching to get to working out again!!! I know that I am supposed to stay away from bananas in phase 3 but is it okay to consume a banana before I plan on running 2-4 miles? Also, I was told to stay around 1200 calories during phase 3. Do I need to replace those calories if I burn them off? (i.e.- I run 3 miles and burn 300 calories ... should I eat 1500 calories that day?)
Phase 3 actually requires you eat from 1500 calories up most specially that you're very active, the more reason you should be increasing your calories. You may have bananas on Phase 4 but not yet on Phase 3 - sorry. You will have to bear with it for just a couple more days.
