Here at live, laugh, lose we are proud of the fact that we bring you the HONEST FACTS, no matter how hard they may be to hear, because we are here to help you lose weight the best you can not comfort and encourage laziness, we do it for you.
The simple answer is
Well No. You simply can’t lose weight without managing what you are eating. You don’t have to skip meals or punish yourself but you can lose weight by simply maintaining how much you eat and what are you eating.
Going to the Gym, performing workouts or even walking regularly plays a vital role in weight loss however it is not the most crucial thing in weight loss. People often have this delusion that weight loss only means sweating by workout, this is just not true.
Let me explain this with an example:
Suppose you have started jogging or brisk walking to lose weight (as this is the way most of people start their weight loss journey).
While this could vary depending on the countries climate you’re running in as well as your pace but on average 1 hour brisk walking, burns around 200 calories.
Now you come home and are starving for the dinner. 1 chapati (Indian food) on average contains 80–110 calories.
So by only eating just 2 chapaties you have re-gained in those calories that you worked ever so hard to lose in that tiring 1 hour of walking. What do you get from this?
Now do i mean that one should stop eating completely? No. Eat enough to keep your body working properly and do not skip meal or torture yourself with strict diets.
Simply keep in check with what you are eating, how much calories you were taking before and how much you are taking now. If you can decrease your per day calories count let say from previous 2500–3000 calories you might be having to 1500 slowly. You can lose weight without exhausting yourself.
Drinking plenty of water ( this will trick you’re brain into thinking you are full) avoid sugar, brisk walking or doing any physical activity everyday, keeping in check with what you eat and how much you eat, will make all the difference.
Do remember that how much you workout or how often you go to the Gym will go in vain if you only eat junk food or unhealthy stuff and excessive food as explained above.
Consistency is the only right way, keeping up with this for a week or two then falling back into old, unhealthy habits would not help you at all. Weight loss does not happens overnight. Be consistent, make aim and work on it. You’ll notice the difference.
