How can you lose weight without exercise?

Even if you are unable to exercise, you can change your eating habits and lose weight in a healthy way.

With proper eating habits and control, losing weight without exercise could be easy. But, unfortunately, it doesn't work for everybody. The body needs a chemical breakdown to release all of the harmful substances that different foods can store. Some people simply have to exercise in order to lose weight. Whereas, other people can lose weight without exercise.

Eating healthier will help you to lose weight. The trick is not to starve yourself though because your body will cling to the fat. Instead eat healthy foods such as lean protein and salads. Count calories and count carbohydrates.

Drink lots. 8-10 Glasses of water a day, and, instead of 3 big meals a day, try 4-5 small meals a day.

The best way to lose weight is through a combination of dietary change and exercise. However, if you are unable to exercise, or if you are too heavy to exercise comfortably, you can still lose weight through dietary changes alone. Nonetheless, with or without exercise, losing body fat requires effort. For more information about the causes of weight gain (or obesity) and how to lose weight, see our related questions:
