Is exercise necessary when low-carb or carnivore?

In today’s NJroute22.com VLOG – we talk about whether deliberate exercise, i.e., “working out” is necessary when living a low-carb or carnivore life.

Our conclusion is “no,” but with some caveats.

  1. While you can easily get in a “healthy zone” without going to the gym or doing other exercises (i.e., running), you will find it takes much longer. It could take many years to attain your results.
  2. If you have a relatively sedentary daily routine (i.e., desk job, minimal movement) you’ll find that reaching the final 10-20% of your goal quite difficult.

We noticed our weight and overall body composition is best during the summer months when we are quite active.

Contrarily, during the winter – when the activity level is much lower – it’s possible to gain a few extra pounds.

We’ll be testing our theory out later this year.

PS – we’re also still investigating how alcohol affects weight when low carb. Up to this point, we saw no correlation.

However, with a more active life – alcohol abstinence could very well lead to quick positive results?
