You MUST reduce your caloric intake if you don't want to blow up like a balloon. When your output is reduced, either because of lifestyle changes or injury (or laziness!), you will gain weight if you don't put the fork down. Americans tend to overeat at all meals but particularly at lunch. Reduce lunch to one regular sandwich or half a small sub (or hero or hoagie or grinder or po' boy, whatever you call it in your part of the country) or ONE slice of Pizza and a Diet Soda. Something along those lines, calorie-wise. Keep in mind that many SALADS sold by Wendy's and McDonald's have a HUGE amount of calories. So, watch out. Of course, that's not an excuse to go hog wild at breakfast and dinner.

Can you lose weight fasting and exercising?

You should not attempt to lose weight by fasting and exercising. It can lead to severe illness. You should only attempt to lose weight by following a healthy diet and exercising. To safely lose weight, you need to figure out the daily number of calories you need to maintain your weight. You can find a handy calculator on the MayoClinic website. One pound of fat is equivalent to 3,500 calories. In order to lose one pound of fat in a week, you will need to create a deficit of 500 calories each day by eating healthy and exercising. In order to lose more than one pound a week, you need to increase the deficit. However, it only is safe to lose one to two pounds a week.
