How to Lose 1 kg per Week

In America today, dieting is the way of life for very many Americans. Over 75 million people seeking weight loss programs spent over $60 billion in attempt to fight the battle of the bulge in 2011. However, contrary to the research findings, loosing 2.2 pounds or 1 Kg every week does not entail anything special, nor does it have to be expensive. The most important things for you to do is cut down the amount of calories that you take in, alter your eating habits, and increase your physical activity.

How to Lose 1 kg in a Week: General Rules

1. Balance Your Calories

Weight loss is a matter of balancing the amount of calories that are eaten with the amount of calories burned. Taking fewer calories than you burn results in weight loss. It is, therefore, important to know that there is no substance, program or pill that causes weight loss magically. A single pound of fat is equivalent to 3500 calories. You should, therefore, plan to take 1100 lesser calories a day over a seven day period for you to loose 1 Kg or 2.2 pounds. When eating less than 1200 calories a day, it is hard for you to meet your nutritional requirements.

2. Exercise

The amount of calories that you burn every day varies. It depends on your weight, age, and intensity and duration of activity. It is recommended that you spend 30 minutes every day on aerobic activity like jogging or brisk walking. According to research, a 155 pound person burns 149 calories walking at 3.5 miles for half an hour. Other than being a calorie burner, exercise improves your cardiovascular health and your mood as well. Start slow and work to more intense and longer sessions of exercise if you are not a regular exerciser. It is advisable to consult your health care practitioner before you start on any new physical activity.
