It is possible to lose weight in a week, in fact the first few days of a new eating and exercise plan usually produces the best weight loss results.

In fact it is not uncommon to lose as much as 5 kilos, which is roughly 10 pounds, at the beginning. This might be all that’s needed to get into a snug-fitting outfit or to keep within a preferred weight range. A longer period of reduced calorie intake and increased activity is probably needed to have a significant impact on a person. In fact, a permanent change of lifestyle is really recommended to keep weight off and have a healthier body. An easy way to keep trim is simply to try to move more and eat less every day.

Learning a martial art is a fun way to get regular exercise. Taking part in a class every few days is a sure way to lose weight in a week. Joining a welcoming group can make it easy to continue with this activity week after week. Choosing wisely when it comes to mealtimes alongside this new exercise regime will result in the pounds dropping off.

All of the martial arts use energy, and some will use a lot more than others. Taekwondo, capoeira, kickboxing and jiu jitsu use the muscles of the entire body, sometimes all at the same time in some moves, which is why they are particularly effective as calorie burners. Add to this that they are fun to do, they don't really feel like exercise, and they require concentration meaning time goes by quickly. All of these reasons make these martial arts great long-term activities. And they are also really good for children. They enjoy themselves without realising how active they are being. A useful tool for parents worried about their child’s health.

For adults, it is possible to burn nearly 1000 calories in an active taekwondo session. Of course, this does depend on how rigorous a class and how much effort is put in, but this is a lot of energy to use in a short space of time. Multiply this by two or three classes a week, and rapid weight loss is very possible. Of course, a good eating plan is also required, otherwise the spent calories could just be replaced by food.

There are many diets out there, but a simple regime to follow includes eating a mixture of protein, fat and vegetables four times a day. By eating like this, hunger shouldn't happen making it easier to stick to. Choose meat, poultry, fish, beans, nuts or lentils for the protein and large portions of low-carb veg like cauliflower, broccoli, lettuce and cucumber. When it comes to fats, think olive oil, butter and coconut oil. Eating at regular intervals reduces the craving for instant sugar hits. Children benefit from this kind of diet as well.

By working hard during two or three martial arts classes and eating little sugar alongside low-carb vegetables and lean protein, it is possible to lose weight in a week. Continue this healthy routine long-term, or even forever, to see inches reduced around the waistline and a healthier lifestyle.
