2-4 hours of exercise a day is extreme...Too much exercise can actually hurt a persons health. I lost 96lbs...low carb, low sodium, low sugar, just walking, and getting up and moving every 20 minutes.

You have to be careful not to get dehydrated, place stress on your heart muscles to the extreme and too much exercise can destroy muscle mass. If the body is not getting enough nutrition it will force it to break down muscle for energy. Placing too much stress on your body will force it to eventually break down.

Congrats on your weight loss but I am sorry more than an hour of exercise may be harming you....please see your medical professional for guidance....not a trainer but a doctor who can give you the best advice.

After reaching their weight goal, a person will need to transition into a maintenance plan they can live with for life. Good luck.

Actually, two to four hours a day of exercise sounds like a lot but without knowing what was being done and at what intensity it could be a very modest exercise regimen.

Going by this person's cookbook entries, it doesn't look particularly carb restricted either.

Good job on losing weight!
