    Any tips on losing weight without working out?

    In all honesty, without exercise why bother?  I'm sorry that sounds harsh, but if you aren't ready to work, you won't lose the weight and keep it off.  Exercise is imperative for good health.  Even those who have disabilities still need to do what they can.

    You can count calories using numerous free sites like myfitnesspal or caloriecount, but most everyone there will also tell you that to be fit and to feel healthy you'll need to do more than just lose the weight by restricting calories.

    Those who exercise also do not have to restrict as many calories as they lose their excess weight. 

    Also if you lose weight without exercising at all, there is a tendency to just become a smaller, flabby version of yourself.  Most people when they lose weight want to get a leaner, more toned look and it doesn't happen with just diet alone.

      Doesn't sound harsh, you do have a point. Exercising is not just about losing the weight, it's about being and feeling healthy. Losing weight without any fitness involved will probably leave you with 'loose skin'. Thanks for your comment! smile

    Hi  writerjrose,

    Infact I am not over weight therefore I have no such experiences for losing weight. One thing I must say to avoid excessive thoughts about any thing. In my opinion excessive thoughts creates burden and ultimately results in tensions and tensions results on your body structures.

      Excellent point, especially if you're a stress eater! smile

    Eat fewer calories and don't snack--the little things add up bigtime!

      Snacking may seem like it's nothing, but you're right, bits here and there really do add up! smile

    drink lots of water when you feel really hungry (that 10-11am feeling). take small portions and spread it out in the day. the attached pic also gives you an idea of the portions you should use.

    you could also throw yourself in the most stressful situations or go into depression, you will lose weight with time but your skin will start to hang after a couple of months. you need to exercise so you don't look skinny and ill at the same time.

      Drinking water is a big tip, especially when you feel like snacking! And that's a great visualization. I don't necessarily agree with throwing myself in stressful situations or depression, I've found keeping yourself busy to be a better solution smile

      Yeah I don't recommend going on the stress route either, but it is a way to lose weight without exercise. tongue
      I agree with The Examiner. Cut the sugar, especially the type you get in liquid form. A detox might help too.

      lol that is true, and I didn't even think about a detox so thanks for mentioning that!.Is it bad that I immediately thought of the master cleanse/lemonade diet?

    4. arksys profile image90
      arksysposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Not at all. Although I've never properly gone through the whole detox "diet". I take dry husk with a gulp of water every once in a while to get a good inner scrubbing. I'm not much of a diet control person though, just work a little harder instead.

    I did it by altering my daily diet/meals suited to me, selecting the right foods of protein, vegetables, fruits. Foods which are good for my self. Dropping sugar (including artificial sweeteners), glucose/glucose syrup, etc.
    Not going by a diet plan made for making money that you see on commercials.

      Your diet is a huge factor in weight loss, especially cutting out sugar! Sugar = Fat. Thanks for your idea smile

    Yes indeed, stick to a high protein and low fibre diet. Always measure out your relatively small proportions and make ice cold distilled water your primary or only drink of choice. You could add tea leaves or coffee beans or lime or lemon to the distilled water for variety. Oh ya, and  play ice hockey as often as possible because it is good for your brain and fitness...

      Thanks for the tips! Lol I can't play hockey, but I love the idea of playing a sport. I used to play soccer a lot and it was a great way of keeping me fit, all that cardio!

      Indeed, I understand that you can't play hockey and that is a good thing. My sister played hockey and made the Hockey Hall of Fame. My brother and I did not! She overshadowed us. Just kidding; soccer is an excellent choice. Indeed it is highly cardio

    if you are talking about gymn excercise, here are some tips what you can do with hitting the gym.

    household chores-window cleaning, mopping, wash the toilet,etc
    brisk walking in the evening
    walking your dog

      Great points, there are so many things in our daily lives that can help us lose weight. I'd also suggest if you're going out, to park your car further away from the entrance, it forces you to walk. A little goes a long way! smile

    Cutting back on sugar intake, sweets (candy, chocolate, cakes, doughnuts, pastries), and salty snacks helps with weight loss. Sugar converts to fat and salty snacks makes the body retain water which adds to weight. Try it for a few weeks and see what happens.

      I have noticed cutting back on those items definitely helps with the weight loss. I am such a sucker for chocolates, cakes and salty chips lol so it's definitely a challenge. Thanks for your input! smile

    You can take a walk outside, ride a bike, do Pilates and yoga. Eat salads and other healthy foods, drink plenty of water, go for a swim. Use your staircase to climb up and down instead of using the elevator.

    Certainly even a little exercise will help you to Lift your body in the case of weight loss. Without practicing it seems difficult. I think that walking or riding a bike is easy
