50 Ways to Lose Weight Without Exercise

Eat This, Not That! Logo By Olivia Tarantino & Samantha Leffler of Eat This, Not That! | Slide 1 of 51: Trying to shed a few? Skip the gym—take a bubble bath instead. Everyone knows the popular weight-loss mantra: Move more and eat less. And although they’re listed together, these two pieces of advice don’t need to be treated equally. Let us explain.Yes, we know that moderate intensity exercise is good for maintaining and improving your health, but more than fifty studies have uncovered evidence that exercise alone may not be the best way to lose weight.Besides the fact that research shows exercise can undermine weight loss by making you hungrier, it can also mislead you to believe you can continue to indulge in junk foods either as a reward for exercising or because you’ve created a calorie deficit, i.e. a “buffer.” That’s not even the worst of it. A study published in the journal Obesity Reviews found that people also tend to overestimate how many calories they burn when they workout. As a result, participants typically overcompensated for their workouts by eating more calories than they burned.Although exercise can certainly help build fat-burning muscle and maintain a svelte physique, it won’t shrink your waistline as much as changing your diet will. So now that we know “eating less” should take priority in your weight-loss journey, where to start? Because it’s easier said than done, we’ve uncovered thirty slimming secrets that can help you tackle your muffin top through diet swaps as well as lifestyle and eating habit changes. (And yes, de-stressing with a bubble bath is one of them.) Find out how you can avoid becoming a gym rat below, and then double down on your efforts by with healthy recipes, supermarket shopping guides, and essential nutrition tips delivered to your doorstep.
