Best Answer

Until six months ago, I would have said yes, but now I know that exercise is not necessary to lose weight.

I lost 25 pounds in 8 weeks and 35 pounds overall so far, without any exercise at all.

All I have done is to reduce my sugar (Fructose) consumption, and monitor my daily calorie intake.

This was recommended by my doctor as a healthy option for me as exercise was difficult for me.

I can honestly say this method is awesome, and does not require exercise to be effective.

Can you lose weight with exercise only?

Well, everyone has a diet. If you don't, that means you're not eating at all. But if you mean can you lose weight by only adding exercise and not changing your dietary habits, then yes, you can. To lose weight, you must burn more calories than you consume. If previously, you were not gaining weight, and you increase your calories burned through exercise and don't change your diet to compensate, then you will lose weight. Often, people will add exercise when they didn't previously, but still not lose weight because without noticing, they have also begun to eat more because they feel hungrier due to the exercise. By monitoring both your caloric intake and your exercise, by holding the intake constant while increasing exercise, you will lose weight.
