Now a days people become fat in a large number. Many of them are not careful about that. But some are very conscious to lose their weight for passing a healthy and happy life.
It's absolutely possible, though I would suspect your body composition wouldn't be as good (i.e., you'd be less likely to retain muscle if you're not exercising), and it would take a longer time to lose a significant amount of weight. Certainly, if your consuming less calories than is required for maintenance, you will lose weight.
Simply put, yes, you can, but for a number of health-related reasons, I would advise some form of exercise (even if it's simply going for a brisk walk).
yes it is. But you have to consider your health. You may lose weight but your body resistance will be weak because of lack of exercise. You have to do both dieting and exercise together for losing weight without a guilt. Make your self physically fit and healthy.
You can, and you will lose fat. You will only lose muscle if you diet too strenuously. Be smart, be conservative in your goals (1 to 2lbs a week), and most fat will come off.
How do I know? Because I lost over 78lbs and could not do any substantial exercise to help myself along (long, tedious story). I'm not especially toned, obviously, but I lost the extraneous fat on my body.
My advice is this:
(1) Eat well. Very, very well. Whole grains, lots of vegetables, good fats, cut the white flour as much as possible (it will just stimulate appetite), and try to squeeze in at least 3 servings of fruit a day.
Losing weight in an ideal scenario is about 90% diet and 10% exercise. Make it 100% diet and you'll be just fine.
Yes, but you would lose muscles, which can make you look sagged, worn-out and a bit old after a strict diet
Diet should always go with exercise.
You can but you're unlikely to retain muscle mass. You also need to keep in mind that the benefits of exercise go far beyond losing weight.
Exercise is really critical--even if it is just walking. I was watching a cable channel the other night. They hosted a panel of medical doctors talking about many alternative methods to improve health. At the end of the program they were all asked " if I could do just one thing to improve my health-What would that be?" They all said "Exercise!" Exercise does not have to be hard or long to be beneficial. The best situation is the right foods and exercise. Check out this site for exercise tips.
It's all about calories in & calories out Even though exercise has so many health benefits, you can still lose weight by not exercising. If you're not going to exercise, at lease eat healthy --- fruits, vegetables, protein, good fats, plenty of water.
