    Hi GQ,

    Congratulations on your first day of low carbing. Stick with it, it does
    The walk you took is not little for the 1st day. Just make it a habbit.
    Try to increase your physical activity day by day. Tomorrow walk 2.5 miles.
    Next week go to the gym or play tennis.

    Honestly, low carbing motivates me to workout. Since I begun, I go to the
    4 to 5 times per week with enthusiasm. IF I get off the low-carb diet
    (I've done
    so many times), I do NOT go to the gym.

    The 1st few days are hard. It takes a little white to adapt to it as a way
    of life.
    Get the ketosis strips and drink lots of water; you are on your way to a
    healthier and
    better mood you.

    Good luck,
