This might work for you.

Have a 30 minute cardio schedule and split it into 10 x 3 minute "cycles".

You would do the cardio 5 times a week in this way. 3 days cardio, 1 day off, 2 days cardio, 1 day off, so you're not going 5 days straight and 2 days doing nothing, which might eat a bit into progress.

In the first week your cycles would look like this.

Walk 2 minutes 50 seconds, jog 10 seconds.

Week 2.

Walk 2 minutes 40 seconds, jog 20 seconds.

Week 3.

Walk 2 minutes 30 seconds, jog 30 seconds.

You see a pattern emerging hopefully :).

You should choose a flat course initially to allow yourself a more easier adaption process.

When you've got to the point where the jogging is sustainable for 30 minutes non-stop, then you can play around with the system, I.E. choose a harder course, try to cover more distance in the 30 minutes, or go for another 5 minutes a week and just use different combinations of that.

Hopefully that helps :).

Anything esle you want to ask or if you want to comment on other peoples efforts, as one little word can mean so much, then please do and we will be happy to try and accomodate you if we are able.

Good luck :).

By following perfect diet plan and doing exercises like walking or jogging and some physical activates daily for one hour we can easily lose the weight. Below are the few tips which I have followed…

Drink Green Tea to Burn Fats - Green tea can help you lose weight along with a diet, since it can burn fats fast. Aside from that, it can also boost your energy levels, which can help you perform more physical activities. Moreover, it can also boost your immune system.

Make Your Own Fruit Juice - Drinking a cup of fruit juice that you made from fresh fruits is actually better than drinking powdered or artificial fruit juice products. Fruit juices are filled with vitamins and minerals that your body needs. Aside from that, it can also help you suppress your appetite, since it can make you feel fuller.

Eating an Apple A Few Minutes before a Meal - An apple a day would not just keep the doctor away, but it can also keep fats away from your body. All you have to do is to eat an apple around 15 minutes before meal time. It can suppress your appetite effectively, which can help you consume lesser amounts of calories.

Eating Oats for Breakfast - Many people today eat cooked oats for breakfast in the attempt to lose weight. This can actually help you lose weight, since oats are filled with lots of fiber. When you have a breakfast meal that is loaded with fiber, it would make you feel full even when it is almost lunch time. Thus, it can help you control your portions.

Eat More Good Fats to Get Rid Of Bad Fats - Eating the good kind of fats is one of the best ways to get rid of the other kind. Some of the best sources for good fats would include walnuts, rapeseed oil, and eggs. Aside from helping your body in burning off fats, they can also reduce your risk to heart diseases.

Including Pomegranates in Your Diet - You would probably think that eating this fruit can even make you gain more weight, because of its taste. On the contrary, due to the fact that it is so sweet, eating pomegranates can actually help you in curbing your appetite for sugar-filled snacks. Aside from that, seeds of this fruit can reduce the ability of your body to store fats.

Eat Banana When You Wake Up - When you wake up in the morning, eat a piece of banana, and combine it with a glass of water. This can provide you the energy that you need to face the day better. Aside from that, it can also help in suppressing your appetite for the rest of the day.

Manage Your Stress at Work - One of the things that can cause lots of people to overeat is the stress they encounter at work. Thus, it is best if you know how to manage it. A technique that can help you with it is to practice deep breathing, whenever you feel stressed out at work. This can help you calm down, and control your hunger pangs.

Take Calcium Supplement - Taking a calcium supplement on a regular basis can actually help you burn more fats. This is because it can make you become more energetic. Calcium, when combined with phosphorus and vitamin D3 can actually boost your energy levels, which can help you perform more physical activities on a daily basis.

Also when you are about to munch on junk food, chocolate, or ice cream, you should think first. You should think deeply if eating an unhealthy food would be worth it, when you have already gone through lots of things to lose weight. By doing that, you may be able to get rid of your cravings, and prefer a healthier snack.

I hope it might be helpful to you.
Good Luck!!!

A piece of Banana has very little energy comapred ot a whole one.

Green teas should fine unless you have a problem like caffeine sensitivity or Xanthinurea, although the caffeine can be converted to uric acid and contribute to gout, so that should be a minor consideration too.

Caclium supplements are less rccomended these days, except for people who are on prescribed steroids, as apparently thr steroids can affect calcium levels. However as something like Strontium is said to stay in the bones longer and repesent an adequate calcium replacement, citrate or ranelate supplements, of which I recall citrate being better rated, would do.

Calcium supplements have been linked to excessive blood calcium, which can cause calcification of the arteries and therefore the stiffening of the arteries could promote reduced blood flow and other possible cardiac or blood pressure related issues.

Dairy calcium has however been proven in a danish study to reduce fat by allowing more fat to bind to pre-solids in the digestive tract and be excreted, however care must be taken as excessive calcium in the diet has been linked to increased osteoperosis risk.

I usually do jogging every morning for about an hour before heading to work. I also walk or take stairs at work rather than on an elevator as an additional exercise even if I am busy with work.
