Slow Carb Diet and Exercise
I have been following the SCD for 3 weeks now. Overall I have lost 4lbs of fat since I started. Currently I am at about 18% body fat. My goal is to get down to between 10-12% body fat.
I wanted to start incorporating some exercises in my routine. If our primary goal is to lose fat, are we supposed to only do the kettle ball exercises? Or are we supposed to also include occam's protocol. I would think that I would need a lot more carbs to do the occam's protocol exercises and this can't be done with the SCD.
So do people mostly do kettleball swings to lose body fat? I was thinking of doing them 2 times a week aiming to do 75 reps.
I just wanted some clarification on what Tim suggests in this book. Appreciate the help. Thanks!

You do not have to incorporate Occam's to lose fat; Occam's is to gain muscle.
The kettlebell swing is recommended because it's a simple exercise that targets a huge variety of muscle groups with minimal effort. You can, of course, do other exercises, add exercises, and even add Occam's, but none of it is required. Find something that works for you and stick to it, and don't overwhelm yourself.
