Yes, absolutely, and if you are on a no-carb diet I am surprised you have the energy to exercise. The human body requires prtoein, fat and carbohydrate for efficient metabolism, energy, and healing. Like, if you ever read of girls undereating then you will know they dont even get their period because their body cannot function.
