4 Unusual Ways to Lose Weight Without Exercise



lose weight

Although diet and exercise are the main ways to lose weight, there are some unusual and weird ways to lose weight without exercise too. For example, have you ever heard of just sitting there and losing weight? What about losing weight while you are sleeping? If you haven’t heard of these weird ways and wanted to learn a few more, keep reading to find out how you can use these odd ways to lose weight without exercising.


1 – Check Your Allergy Medication Side Effects


The allergy medication you are on if you are on any has side effects just like any other medications you may be taking. One of those side effects could be weight gain. If this is the case, try to switch allergy medications to a type that doesn’t cause weight gain.


2 – Sit in the Right Spot


Although many people may not believe this, you can lose weight just by sitting in the right spot at the dinner table. What this means, is, if you sit at the end of the dinner table when you are trying to lose weight, you won’t be near the food and won’t be tempted to grab whatever you want, whenever you want. Not only this but eating home cooked meals at home, instead of going out every night because you don’t have time to prepare, is a lot better on your weight than eating fast food or other restaurant foods. Yeah, it is nice to go out every once in a while but only every once in a while. Also, when going out to eat, try not to overeat. Overeating because it is there is one of the best ways to gain weight instead of losing it. Stop eating when you are full.


Another tip whether eating out or eating at home is to portion your food. Put your food on a small plate or in a small bowl and eat it until it is gone and don’t get any more. Better yet, eat half of it and see how you feel. If you feel full, stop eating and save the rest for later.


3 – Don’t Eat After 9 pm


Try not to eat anything after 9 pm. Eating late at night, especially if you wake up in the middle of the night and want something to eat, talk yourself out of it. Drink a full glass of water instead or if you can’t help yourself, eat fruits and veggies.


4 – Eat Breakfast Every Morning


Many people skip breakfast, and it is the most important meal of the day. The reason it is the most important meal of the day is that it gives you the energy you need to get through your day, at least until lunchtime. Everyone says they are too busy to eat breakfast but skipping it will make you gain weight instead of losing it. The reason for this is because if you skip breakfast at home before going to work or school, you will be grabbing the donuts in the lunch room to get your fill. It’s not a good idea to do this. Not only should you eat breakfast but you should also take snacks with you to work. Healthy snacks include any types of nuts, fruits and veggies, and water. If you do it like this, you will keep yourself energized and full until lunchtime and won’t be tempted to grab a fattening donut instead.


Although these ways to lose weight may be unusual or weird, they do work well. Once you get into a routine with these tips, they will be second nature to you, and you will be well on your way to losing and maintaining a healthy weight for the rest of your life.

Cardio versus Weight Training to Burn Fat ? ‘



Cardio versus weight training ? Which one is best to burn fat ?

At first sight, one might say that if you want to lose fat,
all you have to do is cardio or more cardio because
it is made to burn off calories.

And if you want to build muscle, one might say that you have to do weight training.

But is it as simple than that ?


1- Cardio versus weight training: does cardio has an advantage ?

It is true that is you look just at calorie burning, cardio as a little advantage.

You burn around 12 calories doing a minute of cardio vs 10 calories if you lift weights.

But always keep in mind that time is precious, and it can be boring for some to do cardio
for a long time.

If you have the time, you can burn up to 800 calories for an hour of cardio (which is great).

And if you don’t have a lot of time, you can do HIIT as a form of cardio.

Timing cardio to optimize fat burning is also important.

(Find here when it is the best time to do cardio.)


2- Cardio versus weight training: what does weight lifting offer ?

The good thing about weight lifting is that it gives you
a huge metabolic spike because after  just an hour of your workout,
your body will burn off more calories
just to help your muscles to recover.

You will burn an additional 25% of the calories you burned during weight training.

So if you burned 100 calories during weight training, you will burn
later without doing anything 25 calories more,
for a total of 125 calories.

And let’s remember something important.

The more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn during the day,
without doing anything and without changing your diet


3- A good diet is the real key to fat loss

Both have a lot of advantages for fat loss, we can’t deny that.

However, even if you combine both cardio and weight training,
the real key is having (and keeping!) a good diet.

Every day I see plenty of people who train a lot, doing cardio
and/or weight training BUT still holds on a lot of fat.

Why ?

Because they have a very poor diet.

You can’t lose a lot of weight if you go crazy about food.

You have to know what to eat exactly to burn fat.
