There are various common myths all-around the best way to reduce lots of extra weight without any exercise. One of the most well-known is that over weight people basically consume too much, and therefore they can’t burn unwanted fat without doing lots of exercises per week. Generally speaking this is correct. Figuring out how to drop weight fast without exercise looks like it’s a new and expanding pattern among those that understand that it is not about exercise as much as is about what you’re putting into your bodies.
You should exercise. It’s excellent for your body and mind. Physical exercise offers a lot more positive health benefits than simply fat loss alone. Without having exercising you will not acquire that ripped body most males want to have. And for the females, without exercise you will not have that fitness model body you see on television.
First thing is you’ve got to recognize that to essentially drop some weight you’ll have to make some significant alterations in your life for the long haul, not just a handful of little short-term adjustments here and there. If you want to get better you have got to stay away from the thought of a diet and focus on a change of lifestyle. Your way of life is what the issue is and a momentary alteration of your eating routine will not help you much.
After you come off the diet plan you will most certainly go back to your old methods and gain all that excess weight back. That’s the reason you will have to change your way of life and turn it into a permanent thing in your life, not merely short-term. Effortless approaches to lose weight include changing the portions and decreasing the quantities that you take in for every meal. The best way to accomplish is to simply add food to your plate as you always would but instead of going right to sit down you would take half of each food item on your plate off and put it back into the food bowl. Then you can go sit and eat the portion you have. When you are done you can drink a glass of water to fill any of the voids of hunger that are left, if there are any. This is one of the easy ways to lose weight that has been verified by many people. The truth of this is it is usually not what a person eats that is the problem. So, if you want to lose weight without exercise, you should start working on reducing the amounts you eat for your meals.
So, how do you lose weight without exercising on a regular basis.
Figure out your usage of calories. There are roughly 3500 calories in a pound of stored body fat. So, if you develop a 3500-calorie deficit through diet, exercising or a mix of both, you are going to lose one pound of body weight. (On average 75% of this is fat, 25% lean tissue) If you create a 7000 calorie deficit you will lose two pounds and so on. The calorie deficit can be achieved either by calorie-restriction alone, or by a combination of fewer calories in (diet) and more calories out (exercise). This combination of diet and exercise is best for lasting weight loss. Indeed, sustained weight loss is difficult or impossible without increased regular exercise.
If you want to lose fat, a useful guideline for lowering your calorie intake is to reduce your calories by at least 500, but not more than 1000 below your maintenance level. For people with only a small amount of weight to lose, 1000 calories will be too much of a deficit. As a guide to minimum calorie intake, many researchers recommend that calorie levels never drop below 1200 calories per day for women or 1800 calories per day for men.
Here’s an example…
Let’s say your daily calorie intake level came out to be 3000 calories. To lose 1 pound per week, you need to eat 500 less calories a day. So, in this example you would start to eat 2500 calories per day from now on. Doing so would create a total deficit of 3500 calories a week and therefore cause a weight loss of about 1 pound per week.
See you can lose weight without exercise.

This sounds like a silly question, but it’s really the most important question you can ask:
“What REALLY makes me increase my bodyfat?”
Is it too many calories? Sure. That’s one part. But I know people who can eat 4-5K calories a day and not add an ounce.
Is it dietary fat? Rarely if ever.
Fat is necessary to melt bodyfat. It is true that fat has more calories per gram than protein or carbs, but let’s look at this logically:
40% protein; 40% carbs; 20% fat = 40% fat; 40% protein; 20% carbs
So… no. Increasing your dietary fat does not mean you’ll get fatter…
Your insulin levels are too high.
Elevated insulin is not only the prime cause of diabetes and a sign of being hypoglycemic, but it’s also the prime numero uno reason people get fat.
And insulin is stimulated most by too many carbohydrates… even the so-called “healthy carbs!”
HOWEVER… ready again?
You can still eat carbs… you do not need a “low-carb” dietplan every day in order to keep your insulin and bodyfat low.
You just have to know what TIME to eat the carbs.
There’s a time and place for everything and carbs are no exception.
I have a presentation here that tells you more about how important timing is and how you can eat your carbs (even sweets) and shed bodyfat…

That being said:
If I had to cut one thing out of my diet for 1-4 days it would definitely be carbs.
I need fat… fat helps melt bodyfat… and I have trained my body to use its own fat-stores for fuel.
( See how on the linked-page above )
I DEFINITELY need protein… and so do you.
Protein speeds up thermogenesis, or your body’s own fat-burning heat factory.
Protein also blunts your appetite so you naturally eat less.
Some carbs are healthy… and I do not recommend you cut out low-sugar fruits and green veggies… you need that stuff.
But you don’t need grains, breads, etc.
At least for a few days.
THEN… you need them… but only after you do two things.

Remember: Don’t Quit. Get Fit!
P.S. My favorite “Feed Meal” (that’s what I call meals where I eat a lot of calories and carbs) is this:
Small serving of protein (1/2 my normal serving size) like chicken, tuna, etc.
Brown rice or baked potato
Slice of pecan pie (or Key Lime pie… yum.)
Then later that day I’ll have a few slices of New York-style pizza.
The next day I’m LEANER. It never fails.
The only time this can fail is if you do not set your body UP to receive these carbs and some junk food.
I call this my “Real World Favorite Foods Dietplan.” That’s not the name of my System but it could be! That’s exactly what it is.
I love it… so will you…
