There are plenty of studies demonstrating improvements in body composition (i.e., reduced fat mass and maintained or increased lean muscle mass) and blood lipids (i.e., reduced triglyceride and total cholesterol levels and increased HDL cholesterol levels) on a ketogenic diet without exercise . However, exercise is a key component of a healthy lifestyle and can dramatically improve your results on a ketogenic diet. For this reason, we highly recommend some type of physical activity or exercise on a ketogenic diet, even if it is just walking ten thousand steps per day (about 5 miles).  Additionally, research shows that even moderate walking increased brain ketone uptake so get get out and move.
