2 Simple Steps To Lose Weight WITHOUT Exercise!

I laugh whenever I see an article claiming to give the reader “the 100 best diet tips” or “50 easy ways to lose weight.” Why? Because weight loss isn’t that complicated. You don’t need to do 150 different things. In fact, weight loss requires just 2 simple steps. Guess what else? Neither of these steps is exercise if you don’t want it to be.

(Before you get to the 2 steps, please understand this: You should exercise. It’s good for your body, mind, soul, spirit, chi and whatever other wacky things you can come up with. Exercise provides many more positive health benefits than just weight loss alone. Yes, even more than giving you “hot, sexy, toned arms and legs” and a “defined, chiseled, sculpted chest and abs.” Exercise is the complete opposite of a bad thing. Got that? Good.)

With that being said, here’s the 2 simple steps to lose weight without exercise…

Step 1:

Figure out your daily calorie maintenance level. This is the number of calories your body needs to burn each day to do, ya know, things. For example, living and standing. Getting this number (or a close enough estimate) is quite easy. To do this, use the quick and easy calorie maintenance level calculator about 6 paragraphs from the top of the weight loss diet plan page. That should give you the close enough estimate.

Since it’s impossible to know for sure if that estimate will be close enough for everyone, a second option for figuring out your calorie maintenance level is described directly below the calculator. You’re welcome to use both methods if you want.

Step 2:

Once you know your calorie maintenance level, it’s time for some very basic subtraction. If you failed second grade math, now would be the time to go get a calculator. There are about 3500 calories in 1 pound. So, if you were to eat 3500 calories less than your body needs each week, you would end up losing 1 pound per week. Since there are 7 days in a week, this comes out to be 500 less calories than your maintenance level each day. (3500calories รƒยท 7days = 500calories less per day)

Here’s an example…

Let’s say your daily calorie maintenance 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.

And there you have it… the 2 simple steps to lose weight without exercise.


Oh, and by the way, if you are wondering why there was no mention of protein, carbs or fat, or you felt these 3 steps were lacking some detail and explanation, it’s because what you just read was nothing more than a very brief summary of The Lose Weight Diet.

    I am 14 years old and i weigh 190 pounds. I sometimes walk 3 miles and then sometimes i just stop getting active. I am doing fencing as a school sport though. The big problem I am having is just eating. And just when I finish excercising i would be like ok good job dont eat junk food, then i just let myself go. I also want to know what to eat at school for lunch, a sandwhich pasta or what? Because I would like to keep my diet nice and everything. Could you please help me with what to eat, thank you

    I have read this before and I am glad that it was confirmed here. I have two small children and live above cranky neighbors, so I can’t get on my treadmill. Unless, I want to risk hearing complaints from them or the main office. The only choice that I have to lose weight is to simply count calories.

    Thanks so much!

    Just surfin’ and found this site. I wanted to post that I’ve been losing weight with no exercise since late January. Due to fibromyalgia, my pain levels skyrocket when I exercise and I end up in worse health than if I do nothing to begin with. Exercise is my nemesis! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Since January, I’m down 11 pounds while still being able to eat the foods I like and prepare for my family. I use to record my calorie intake (the key = be HONEST in recording your food intake…no matter how many mistakes you make!!!). Check it out…it’s awesome. You can do an online search to find calculators for learning your BMI, BMR, and the Harris-Benedict Equation. These calculators will tell you what you need to know. Losing weight with no exercise is a SLOW process…don’t get discouraged! It works though. This is the first time in my adult life that I’ve tried to lose weight and am succeeding. I’m 37 years old and now weigh 231 lbs. after losing 11 lbs.
