First Week Fitness Plan

The idea of this simple little program is to assist you in developing a consistent, sensible approach to your fitness for weight loss program. The main objective of this program is to help your body burn excess fat not to gain muscle or bulk up, inevitably there will be toning going on as well but primarily this is to help you burn fat. The assumption is that you are currently inactive and overweight, if this is not the case for you then you may need to make adjustments to the program to suit your own circumstances.

WARNING. The program first requires your focus and dedication, so therefore you need to be prepared in both mind and – of course – body. It is highly advised that you first visit your doctor for a check-up before embarking on any weight loss or fitness program.

Before starting with this plan, a word on positivity. You should be dedicated and positive about your program and be prepared to be in for the long haul, it is very easy to become impatient but the long term effects of increasing your fitness levels are well worth working for. This program is specifically designed to burn fat and not to turn you into a superstar athlete or gym bunny. Another problem is over doing it, because of the slow build up required for a long term fitness for weight loss program people can get carried away, this will kill your fitness dreams quicker than any other single thing, please exercise patience and caution when embarking on a program like this, its a long term goal and it won’t happen over night.

Stretching, please stretch and warm up before attempting any exercises, pay particular attention to the areas you will be working that day but good overall stretching is very important for injury prevention.

Day One:

Walk. that’s it pure and simple what i would like you to do today is set aside an hour of your day at a convenient time and go for a walk, the walk should be brisk enough that you are going to be slightly out of breath and it should last for 20 minutes, got a dog, take it but don’t get distracted you need a 20 minute brisk walk. The reason for the hour is that before your walk you should stretch and after your walk you should stretch your whole body. it may have taken a little time but you have just taken the first steps to a weight loss program that will help you be fit and healthy for life

Day Two:

A good whole body stretching routine should be followed by an upper body workout. This can be done in a gym, on a home gym, with simple upper body exercises or maybe you can swim and have the time to go to your local pool. If you do something like swimming please take the opportunity to push yourself. I recommend swimming gently for 5/10 minutes by …

Detoxification With The 3-day Detox Diet

However, our bodies are quite remarkable and have been built in such a way as to protect itself from these harmful intruders.

As mentioned above, there are various detox diets, however, the 3-day detox diet is a good quick start program toward detoxification.

One of the servings of vegetables, at least, should be raw vegetables such as carrots, celery, or cauliflower. Choose the vegetables you enjoy.

Natural oils can include olive, coconut virgin oils, or fish oil.

In addition to the changes in your meals you will also need to take two doses of a kidney and liver tonic over the 3-day detox diet period. Not two doses a day. Just two doses over the three days you’re trying to detoxify your body. You can …
