Some people may have a hard time believing that it is possible to shed a few pounds without every stepping foot into a gym. Sometimes you may just not have the money to pay for an expensive gym membership. You may be injured or due to some circumstance you can't exercise. You may not be in an ideal location to attend a gym or get outdoors, or you could just be anti-exercise all together.
Whatever your reason there is some good news. It is possible to lose weight without exercise IF you're determined, patient, and can develop a taste for different things in a relatively short period of time.
First things first, open up all of your cupboards and refrigerators and have a look around. You need to look at everything that you own and get rid (or give away) everything that will not help you during this quest. What all does that entail? Here's a list:
Â· White bread
Â· White pasta
Â· White sugar
Â· White potatoes
Â· White rice
Â· Sugary cereals (just about all of them)
Â· Soda, juice drinks, etc.
Â· Cakes, cookies, candies, chocolates
Â· Ice Cream
If you're really serious about losing weight without exercise you're going to need to be extremely cut throat with the foods you allow in your house. The theory is that it's best not to have the foods around in the first place in the event that you become tempted. And you will become tempted.
The next step is to go to your local grocery and begin to stock up on the best substitutes for those foods we've just discarded. Purchase whole grain bread, whole wheat pasta, raw sugar (or honey preferably), sweet potatoes (yams in a can do not count), wild brown rice, and old fashioned oatmeal as a replacement for cereals.
Also, nothing beats out an abundance of fruits and vegetables when it comes to lose excess weight without exercise, so stock up! In fact, for best weight loss results ensure that you purchase a lot of dark leafy green vegetables such as kale, collard greens, spinach, etc. The greener the better, but you can mix it up with the yellow colorful veggies like squash as well.
Having various kinds of fruits and vegetables really adds to the diversity and quality of the meals you can prepare when trying to lose weight without exercising.
Fruits are definitely your best friend when you're trying to get off of your sugar cravings. I'm assuming you had an abundance of ice cream, cakes, candies, and cookies in your home of course. I've been there, too much of that stuff isn't good. Even though it seems extreme to get rid of all of it, it's all about the goal, which is to lose the excess weight without doing a bit of exercise. Just keep your goal in mind is all.
Instead of sodas and juice drinks with meals, try water. Good old fashioned water. It's not pretty or spectacular, but it gets the job done and helps to give you that full feeling when you drink it with your meals. This can greatly assist you when trying to lose excess weight.
Another tip to consider: Drink water. Drink it with every meal. Instead of drinking juice drinks and the like, have some water instead. Losing the weight will require you to make sure that you drink lots of water.
Drinking water with every meal can also help you to eat less. This is perhaps one of the most important points to this entire article. By eating less and eating slower you give your body and brain time to work together to help you realize that you're already full. The idea here is to eat until you're not hungry not until you can't move.
In order to help you eat slower and eat less, I'd suggest eating as often as you can with people. Once you keep you goal firmly in mind, social eating can help you to lose weight especially if it's company with people you enjoy and whom you'll be talking to as well.
Just replace the foods you used to eat with the foods suggested. Drink more water with your meals and eat smaller portions and eat a lot slower. Chew your food until it's liquefied. All these things add to help you in losing the weight. No more unhealthy carbs to slow you down and go straight to your fat stores.
Just remember to be patient and give yourself some time. With a diet like this, it is possible to drop about 1 â 2 pounds a week if you can stick with this way of eating. It's not hard, it just requires some self-discipline and a bit of persistence, but at least you don't have to exercise to lose the weight.
