You Can Lose Weight Without Exercise, But Then What?

You Can Lose Weight Without Exercise, But Then What? 2 5 6

There are many ways to lose weight. Some methods include:

1. Quick weight loss using a commercial weight loss program.
2. Quick weight loss using starvation techniques.
3. Weight loss using restriction methods, such as severely omitting carbohydrates from your diet.
4. Weight loss using a reduced calorie diet.
5. Fat loss and weight loss using healthy nutrition and regular exercise.
6. Weight loss surgery.

Whichever method you choose, my experience and research proves that you need to do at least two things to be successful in the long run. And, those two things would be managed, healthy nutrition and regular exercise. Throughout the history of weight loss chronicles, these two things have remained constant.

If you try a quick weight loss program for motivation, eventually you will still need to eat right and exercise regularly to permanently transform your body.

Need more evidence? Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center found that losing weight and body fat with diet and exercise are more effective when done together. Doing either one alone is not as effective. The results of this randomized trial, led by Anne McTiernan, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Prevention Center and a member of the Hutchinson Center's Public Health Sciences Division, were published online April 14 in Obesity.

According to the Hutchinson study, the majority of women who both improved their diet and exercised regularly shed an average of nearly 11 percent of their starting weight, which exceeded the study's goal of a 10 percent or more reduction in body weight.

"We were surprised at how successful the women were," McTiernan said. "Even though this degree of weight loss may not bring an obese individual to a normal weight, losing even this modest amount of weight can bring health benefits such as a reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer."

So, what if you want to lose weight quickly for motivation or a special event? I believe this can be the start that many people need to get going. But, that’s just the beginning.

Struggling with my weight, I found a very simple and convenient way to track my food intake during the day using a new method called the "Categories Method" by CountEat :a very useful iPhone app.

The Anti Obesity drug makers and diabetes drug makers take in 10 billion$$$$ every year with no cure!!

Food Chemicals are the cause of the diabetes and obesity crisis

The FDA and Drug makers know this and are laughing to the Billionaire$$$ bank

The food chemicals break the gut(insulin) and this is the cause of the diabetes and obesity crisis

A filmmaker has been reversing diabetes and Obesity WITHOUT MEDICATIONS in now 10 countries and the drug makers do not promote the story.

I have been reviewing
iHCG Pro which is taken in by oral drops no injections. From what I understood, it is effective in both men and women.
