Can You Really Lose Weight Without Exercise?
The big question is “how to lose weight fast without exercise?”
I’ve learned about the 80/20 principle that is so important and it makes total sense.
It’s basically 80% of your efforts should be a clean eating and 20% should be workouts.
So, it’s clear enough to say that the biggest contributor in a weight loss journey is your diet.
It was always hard for me to believe that a human could lose weight without regularly hitting the gym or working out at home for at least 1 hour daily.
One day a friend introduced me to a weight loss program where you basically eat healthily and lose weight. That was it!
A clean diet would be the key to the extreme fat loss I badly needed.
What I understood is that our diet is everything. For instance, you can do lots of exercises but if you don’t eat as you should, you may see slow results or no results at all.
But, if your eating habit is on point, weight loss without exercise is guaranteed even though you don’t exercise at all. I’m a living testimony of what I just said, so you can take my word for it!
Of course, you can add a few workouts gradually if you want to improve your health and simply boost your weight loss.
The Fat-Burning Process
During my weight loss journey, I educated myself about the way our body works to get a better understanding of what I was doing.
For me, it was important to get to know more about this mysterious fat-killing process I was about to experience.
I have seen many people struggling with weight gain because they followed a meal-plan just for the sake of losing weight.
After they lost their desired weight, they returned back to eating “normally” and they thought they won’t ever gain a pound.
But if you understand how your organs are working hard to burn those fat cells, you won’t get back to nasty foods so easily I promise.
As a matter of fact, my weight loss program was, for me, a new and healthy eating lifestyle that I was about to embrace for the rest of my life.
It’s basically cutting off everything’s bad for the body. For e.x, junk and fast food, soft drinks, sugary foods, oily and deep-fried stuff, and those bad snacks. You get the picture right?
But hey, a yummy McDonald’s burger once in a while is totally fine. Like I always say, it’s not one junk food that will make you fatter or it’s not 1 day at the gym that will make you leaner.
Best Ways To Lose Weight Without Exercise
Ok, now it’s time to share my best weight loss tips with you, that I myself have followed to be where I am today, comfy, and well in my skin! (frankly, I always felt good in my skin, although I was a chubby chick for more than 10 years). :)))))
I will say it again, a clean eating habit is the key to getting your new sexy body.
As you can see in my notebook, I kept track of my weight loss weekly and you can also see that I was losing almost 1kg every week.
The first few months were pretty intense, meaning I was losing consistently 1-2kgs each week.
Obviously, as my body got used to this eating habit, I started hitting a weight loss plateau.
It’s important to note that each and every person will most likely hit this weight loss plateau after a certain months of dieting or working out. It’s inevitable!
But luckily, I had a few good tips on how to get past a weight loss plateau and get back on track.
I can say, for the 4-6 months of sticking to my weight loss program, I didn’t put on any weight, not a single pound.
Ok, are you ready for a natural weight loss? Let’s get into the meat of the matter.

7 Best Tips For A Guaranteed Weight Loss
Let me walk through the best ways to lose weight naturally, without the need for a gym membership.
1. Cut Down Your Carb Intake
Cutting down on carbs is one of the recommended ways you can put your body in a fat loss situation. It’s clearly one of the fastest way to lose weight.
I think it’s THE first thing to deal with if you want to drop those extra pounds real quick.
What happens is that our body breaks down all our carbohydrates into sugar and the “end-substance” is, of course, glucose.
So what will happen if you decrease yur carb intake? The body will find itself in a position where it should start seeking its energy elsewhere.
That’s when it starts drawing energy from your fat storage and not from your glucose storage, also known as the glycogen.
So, reducing your carb intake is one of the main steps to losing weight quickly.
2. Switch To Skimmed Milk
Milk is known to have lots of nutrients, important for the body. Since full-cream milk falls into the category of full-fat dairy, it also contains a high percentage of saturated fats.
This is definitely not recommended if you want to lose weight.
Ok! Maybe the keto dieters will get mad at me. But here I’m talking about a low-carb diet where you will need to reduce your fats and carbs intake for better results.
3. Say Yes To Healthy Sugar
Did you know that white sugar is composed of 50% glucose and 50% fructose?
While brown sugar is healthier than white sugar, it is still recommended for weight loss to take an alternative like Agave Syrup which has the lowest GI value.
As a result, it contributes to better blood sugar management and loss of weight.
*GI Value is a measurement of the glycemic index of sugar.
4. Ditch Junk Foods!
We all know that junk foods do any good to the body. The high level of calories in junk foods will never contribute to weight loss.
In my opinion, fast food has to be the biggest hurdles in weight loss in this day and age where fast food is so popular, cheap and so handy.
But the results on our weight will only be discouraging.
Simply because of the high rate of saturated fats, cholesterol, and other ingredients.
These will only hurt your loss of weight as well as your health.
5. Choose Light Butter
Butter is basically a concentrated dairy fat. So, for weight loss purposes, a reduced-fat butter is recommended.
I use the Elle & Vire Butter Light Salted 20% but you are free to use whatever option you can find in your grocery store.
6. Water? Really?
Even if you’re not on a weight loss program, you’re supposed to be drinking around 6-8 glasses of water every day.
If you’re serious about losing weight without exercise, then 2L of water per day will seriously benefit you.
Research has shown that water really helps burn calories. It’s also believed that drinking cold water enhances the process of calorie-burning in your body.
Simply because your body automatically spends more energy/calories to heat up the water for digestion.
7. Little Cooking Oil But No Deep-Fry
Oil in food is good, for the skin tissues but not too much. An excess of oil while preparing your meals or a recurrent intake of deep-fried snacks or foods will only harm your body as well as your efforts to lose those excess fats.
Final Thought On How To Lose Weight Without Exercise
These are the exact steps I’ve gone through to lose over 40 pounds without a single of exercising.
Basically, these are the small changes you can start applying if you want to lose weight without exercise and see quick results.
With confidence, I can guarantee you will see a fast loss in your weight when following these few tips.
Please bear in mind that these steps above should be combined with a consistent clean diet. If cut down your carbs once a week or drink water once in a blue moon, then you won’t see any results at all.
