Do I have to exercise to lose weight on keto?
You don’t have to exercise in order to lose
body fat. However, exercise will massively
boost your results and esteem. We are
not designed as humans to sit still for long
periods of time and a lack of movement increases
the risk of disease. Even just 10 minutes
of movement can have a huge positive impact
on your body and mental state. Also, different
types of exercise will have different effects.
So, for example strength training will help
you lose weight by building muscle and increasing
your metabolic rate. High intensity interval
training, or HIIT for short, will help you
burn more calories and it won’t increase your
appetite. Moderate cardio, such as walking
or light cycling, is good for your general
health but it doesn’t really boost weight
loss that much.
