Weight Loss


It is a common myth that the only way to lose weight is through exercise.  However, this myth is false.  There are number of things you can do to lose weight without exercise. 

Now, with that being said, exercise will definitely accelerate your weight loss as well as contribute to your overall health and wellbeing but it is not a necessity.

Three ways to achieve weight loss without exercise are:

 Changing Your Diet

In order to lose weight without exercise you have to immediately change your eating habits.  It is imperative that you begin to eat healthier, lower calorie foods if you want to shed those extra pounds.

You should evaluate what you eat on a daily basis and determine what needs to be removed from your diet. If you are eating a lot of fast food, sugary and/or salty snacks, fatty meats, fried foods and the like, these things will have to be removed from your diet.

A great way to keep track of the calories you are consuming is to keep a diary of everything you are eating each day.

In order to lose one pound, you need to burn or eliminate 3500 calories.  If you currently eat 2500 calories daily, cutting back to 2000 calories daily will result in one pound lost in a week.

Replace all of the "bad" foods with more beneficial foods, like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and fish. Replace sugary drinks like soda and juice with water. This will make a dramatic difference, and enable you to lose weight without exercising.

For an added boost in calorie reduction, throw in a day of fasting once a week.  Fasting for weight loss when done properly is an effective method for losing weight.


In some cases, weight loss supplements may be beneficial for weight loss. They are designed to increase your metabolism and help your body burn fat.

However, there are a lot of weight loss supplements on the market, some good and some not so great.

Before deciding to take a supplement, do a little research to determine which one may be best suited for your particular needs. 

You should also consult with your physician before starting on weight loss supplements.

 Become More Active

I know that you are thinking I don’t want to exercise but I am not talking about exercise in the typical sense.

What you can do is in your normal daily routine are little things like, choosing to take the stairs instead of riding the elevator. 

If you can walk to the corner store instead of driving, opt for the walk.  Doing these little things will help you to reach your weight loss goals a little faster.

These are a few ways to lose weight without exercise, but remember that exercise will help you lose the weight much faster and improve your overall health.  So unless you are physically unable to exercise, it is recommended you do so, even if it’s only a moderate amount.

If you are extremely overweight, another option for weight loss would be surgery but this is only recommended in extreme cases where your weight is causing significant health issues.

Your doctor would be the best source of information regarding surgical options for weight loss.
