You can lose weight without exercise with diet alone but you would have to remember your body needs to be able to burn the calories you take in. So veggies and fruits and very lean meats are needed. Have you also heard of something called the negative calorie diet where it takes more calories to digest the food then it has calories. But it is always good to get a little exercise in even if it is walking. I lose my weight buy dieting and not eating high fat foods and trying the negative foods so I have lost 22 pounds so far and little exercising.

hi ajith yeah losing weight is not an easy job-but for a faster weight loss try this 5-step program: 1.Diet: Go for a 45-35-20 diet plan - i.e. your diet should include 45% complete protein (from sources like eggs, chicken, fish, Soya beans, milk products, etc), 35% complex carbohydrates (from sources like whole wheat bread, brown rice, etc) and only 20% healthy fat (unsaturated fat obtained from sources like fish, olive oil, flaxseeds, etc).Include plenty of dietary fibre, from sources like oatmeal, green salad, fruits and green leafy vegetables. Go for 6 smaller meals in a day instead of 3 heavy meals. Also it is very important that breakfast should be your heaviest meal of the day and dinner the lightest one. Drink a glass of hot water before your meal – this induces a ‘thermogenic’ effect in our body, as a result of which, greater percentage of the food is converted into energy. Including spices like green chilly in our diet also has similar effect. Avoid products containing sugar, simple carbohydrates like white rice, white bread and also sources of ‘unhealthy fats’ or saturated fats like red meat, butter, coconut oil, etc. 2.Exercise: It is very important to include weight training along with aerobics in your exercise program. Weight training is anaerobic and therefore burns carbohydrates (sugar). Cardiovascular exercises such as jogging, cycling, or stair climbing are aerobic and therefore burn fat. By weight training, there is an increase in lean body mass, as a result of which Resting Metabolism Rate or RMR increases, hence the body burns calories even during period of rest. Low calorie dieting and aerobic training without weight lifting can make you lose muscle - in fact, it can actually make you fatter. So you need to adopt a two-pronged approach when it comes to exercise, i.e. to include both aerobics and weight training also known as resistance training. 3.Yogasanas: Yogasanas like Paschimotannasana, Bhujangasana, Sarvangasana, Halasana, Dhanurasana, Veerasana, Trikonasana, ArdhaMatsyendrasana etc are very much beneficial in weight loss. Along with these yogasanas, Suryanamaskaar or Sun Salutation-a type of Yogasana and Pranayama(Yogic breathing technique) like Kapaalbhatti Pranayama are also very useful. Endocrine glands control various activities of body. Any problem in the functioning of endocrine glands can result in various physical problems, which includes obesity. The greatest advantage of Yoga is that it strengthens our endocrine system, hence it an important tool in combating obesity and hence weight control. 4.Multi-Vitamin, Multi-Mineral and Ayurvedic supplements: The body's weight-control or weight-related functions - like appetite, hunger, metabolic rate, metabolism of fats and sugars, calorie-burning, and so on - operate more efficiently with an optimum intake of vitamins and minerals. All of them play a part in maintaining optimum health and weight. The most important vitamins and minerals for weight loss are: Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Choline (part of B-complex), Inositol (part of B-complex), Chromium and Zinc. Ayurvedic supplements like Navaak Guggul, Medohar Guggul, Gokhshuradi Guggul, Punarnavadi Guggul, Chnadraprabha Vati, Arogyavradhini, etc are also very effective when used with proper diet and Yoga. 5.Sleep: If you want to lose weight, experts say you need to get enough sleep. Sleeping less may affect (lower) a person's basal metabolic rate i.e. BMR or RMR (the number of calories you burn when you rest)-another important contributor to weight control. Insufficient sleep can cause the release of additional cortisol - the stress hormone - and can stimulate hunger. Also sufficient sleep is very essential for development of the lean muscles – which boost the BMR/RMR. Best of luck and have a good day!!!!

I think eating healthy is one of the best way to reduce weight and also to avoid snacks. Walking is one of the best exercises. I am trying to avoid snacks and to increase the fruits and vegetables to be healthy and to lose weight.

do both. But the dieting must be the safe way. Eat healthy foods but do not starve yourself. And the exercise, budget it wisely. Do not kill yourself with exhaustion. do things in moderation

To me exercise is the best and only way to lose weight. I have tried dieting, eating less carbs and more fruits and veggies but nothing worked wonders really. But I did exercise for a couple of months, mainly the abdomenal areas and I could feel a tautness in them. I gave up for various reasons, but I still believe continued exercise is the only way out.

I think we must try to persist on exercise and if we only persist than we are able to find the results. I think the more we exercise and eat good and healthy food the more we will be able to lose weight.

Exercise and dieting together helps you lose weight faster. Exercising without diet wont be of much use and diet without exercise takes too long. Diet in the sense having vegetables and fruits.

I also think if we lose a couple of weight we will stay healthy. I think lots of people are doing walking as an exercise. Longtime ago we have time to do walking and now a days most people uses vehicle a lot and does not walk often as people in older generation did. I think walking and running are the less expensive and safest exercises.

It's better to both eat healthily... not necessarily diet... and to exercise together. You'll lose more weight by burning off the calories and toning up your body, turning the fat into muscle. Brightest Blessings.

I find that a combination of the two works wonders. More intake of fruit and vegetables and less of dairy products and meat (which I eat little of anyway) combined with some good long brisk walks and the pounds start to shed - not always from the right places but they do move around eventually!

I will prefer to do herbal therapy like green tea therapy to reduce my belly fat. Green Tea is a good option for people who do weight-loss program, because it can increase your metabolism better. Extract of green tea has long been known to maximize fat burning Palyphenols in green tea also contains epigallocatechin gallate, which is known to significantly reduce food intake and lose weight in a healthy way. Caffeine and catechin polyphenols contained in green tea work together to increase the fat burning process, thereby increasing the amount of fat in the body are destroyed, as well as suppress hunger and appetite. Furthermore, green tea can act as a diuretic to increase urine and the body has the ability to remove toxins through urine. Have a ideal weight is the dream of all people, both men and women, but in reality is not easy to get get good physical for women or men, since most people today are married or over the age of 20 years, nearly 85% had definite obesity, it is actually human, because at that age most people are busy working motion activity is reduced, so that the buildup of food for many years to make the occurrence of obesity. Okay , my friend just try this green tea therapy now.
