    According to the book, exercise only counts (for extra calories) if it is done for 60 consecutive minutes, correct? I do 20-30 in the morning and 45 or more after work. My weight loss has stalled and I’m wondering if I need the extra calories, but this rule is holding me back. Thoughts?

    I think that it is the total for the day as you are burning more calories then someone not doing anything. I work out now 5 days a week (soon to be 7)and on the days I work out I add the extra calories and the extra drops and on the days I don’t work out I use the normal amounts. It has worked well for me. I stalled out the second week and the weight has been coming off slowly but steady. I started week four 17 pounds lighter. I think you need the extra calories and drops so your body does not go into starvation mode. I hope that helps

    Exercise is exercise even if it is broken up! You will know when your body needs a few extra calories because of a tougher workout. Listen closely to how you are feeling!

    Sarah,

    For me increasing my exercise minutes or increasing the INTENSITY of the exercise minutes you are currently can get you past a stall, increasing water along the way.
