While physical activity is important for overall health, we generally recommend for new members to first get into a good routine with their meals and snacks and take one step at a time. Once members are in a good routine with their new eating plan (whether it takes a few weeks, a month, or longer), we encourage starting to focus on other healthy behaviors like exercise.
The nutritional aspect is the most important piece, so starting there is key for ensuring the body is receiving adequate protein to preserve lean muscle tissue before tackling more intense activity. Once ready to tackle exercise, start slow and ease into more activity if not as active prior to starting your program.
If you are currently active, keep consistent with what you have been doing. If you suspect you might need more calories due to your higher activity levels, please email our dietitians to discuss more.
