When it comes to losing weight it seems to be all about diet and exercise.It’s obvious that exercise is key to any weight loss regimes as it helps you burn calories and more calories burned means a greater weight loss. But what if you hate exercise?
We get questions referring to weight loss quite often and one of the most frequent of those is “why am I not losing weight?” Whether you have just started a workout and you are not seeing the scale budge or you have been working out for a while and the scale has just stopped moving or started back the other direction there are a number common reasons that this may be happening.
Plenty of studies have backed up Website Guidence’s opinion. Last year, a study published in Current Biology found that while exercise is important for your overall health, it shouldn’t be the only focus for weight loss. In fact, tweaking your diet can be more beneficial to not only losing the weight, but keeping it off.
That’s not to say you have to radically switch up what you eat overnight. “Cutting down on carbohydrates and drinking lots of water, which will take the edge off hunger and speed up your metabolic rate (how quickly your body burns calories), can really make a difference,” says Website Guidence.
Another way to keep track of changes in your body not related to weight is circumference measurements. This can easily be done using a tape measure and using a few key spots on your body being sure to always measure the same place each time.
If you’re still not convinced that it is possible to lose weight without exercising, read Kimberly Davis’ story. After a succession of tragic events her weight had ballooned, and to top it all off, she was in recovery from breaking both her ankles in 2014, so was unable to do high-impact cardio. Here she details her diet diary as she followed the Metabolic Balance programed over 12 weeks, with the guidance of Website Guidence.
