Start off slow and just keep building up your exercise gradually. I've been doing MMA and BJJ training for a couple of months and have dropped about 16lbs already (down from close to 14 and a half stone at the start of july - The regular training as well as a complete changing diet. Cutting out fizzy drinks and sweets and replacing them with water and fruit has been the main factor.

If you have been in combat sports shape in the past it won't be as hard to drop those pesky extra pounds as it would have been if just overweight with no training experience. I'd suggest dropping some weight before going back to Muay Thai otherwise you'll gas right away.

My only suggestion is to try running/jogging at least a mile a day and working your way up. Also, do some weight training to build muscle. It may keep you from "losing" weight, but it will cause you to lose fat much faster.

Excellent advice my friend.

Good to hear that you are making such wonderful progress.

I might also add that you would want to eat 1.5x your weight in protein and dont consume any carbs after 8 in the evening.

Just start eating smart and learn to time your meals according to your day and training, this will make a huge difference with no change. The apply the advice the guys gave you and you should be right on track.
