Running regularly to lose weight
You have decided to lose weight by running. Great, that's a good start! However, bear in mind that running is not sufficient in and of itself. Your primary objective must be to maintain a good state of health by combining your training with a balanced diet. This will help you to lose weight effectively in the long-term.~
Losing weight means expending more calories than you consume. Try to run 2 to 3 times a week at a moderate pace. If you are not used to jogging, start with a few 15-minute sessions and gradually increase your running time until you are running for 40 – 45 minutes. If you run every week, you will see that you will naturally lose weight and you will be surprised how quickly!~
Bear in mind that the weight shown on the scales should be treated cautiously: a more accurate measure is how you feel physically or the change in the sizes of the clothing you're wearing. Indeed, if you start to run regularly, you will start to build muscle and tone your body. Your body shape will change and you should keep in mind that muscle weighs more than fat, so your weight will not decrease as quickly as you would like! This doesn't mean that you are not losing weight.
