I keep seeing that you absolutely cannot exercise, etc.
I'm just wondering why you can't add calories to make up for it when you exercise. Example, suppose that I go jogging (computing my jog at burning 800 cals) and then make up for it by adding 800 calories of protein/etc to my existing (500 cal) normal meals throughout the day... so that I am eating a total of (1300 cals) that day. what's the problem with that?
that seems to me like it would allow for exercise, stamina training, etc and even help preserve muscle. It might also be easier psychologically because you get to eat more food total, keeping you satisfied and fuller, even though total calories consumed is offset by the exercise. You would obviously have to be careful not to overeat.
has that been tried? any thoughts on why it is not correct, or what would happen if I tried that?

The first two weeks I did nothing physical at all. Then I started playing tennis three-four times a week (2-3 hour singles matches) and managed to lose 40 lbs (20% of my body weight) during the program.
However, I felt like my heart was about to pop out through a chest any minute. My hands were really shaky while I played too. I don't know if it was a combination of excitement and stress that I was putting on my body or something else. I would not recommend anything extreme like I did. btw...I did not eat extra calories either. Once I passed that shakiness feeling I would say I felt great, much lighter on my feet etc.
