How To Lose Weight Without Exercise
So, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably pretty much stuck in the house right now because of the global pandemic (COVID-19).
One of the most frustrating things about being in a lockdown, for me anyway… isn’t that I can’t see my friends or keep the schedule that I’m used to keeping.
What could be worse than that? Well, the gym is closed!
I have a total of zero pieces of gym equipment at my house… which means for the time being, it’ll be really difficult for me to adequately exercise!
Okay, and I know that there are a ton of at-home exercises that are available out there. But, they aren’t for everyone.TRENDING: Science Reveals Easy, No-Workout Ways to Lose Weight… While You Snooze!
Lots of people aren’t comfortable doing exercises without a trainer to tell them if they’re doing it correctly. Others, perhaps, just can’t fit it into their schedules.
(Or you might just not want to do those at-home exercises, period!)
Whatever the reason, I’m sure many of us are feeling really frustrated about our weight loss journey.
The good news is that, like with everything… there is always a solution.
If you are in quarantine… or perhaps just don’t have access to a gym and can’t exercise… but you still want to lose weight… well, you’re in luck.
That’s exactly what we’re going to be tackling today! And, just to be clear – it is totally possible to lose weight without exercise.
How To Lose Weight Without Exercise
Here are just a few really easy tips that you can start trying out to keep the scale going down:
1) Store unhealthy foods out of eyesight.
Okay, this one is actually surprisingly helpful. In fact, I did it just last week when I got sent a huge box of incredibly delicious looking, but unhealthy, snacks!
I ended up storing them on the very top part of my cabinets. Not only can I not reach it without a step stool… but it’s basically “out of sight, out of mind,” as they say!

2) Drink enough water.
Perhaps the best part of this idea, though, is that drinking water has a ton of other health benefits. It’s a win-win situation!
3) Sleep well and stress less.
Okay, I know this one is tough for a lot of us… myself included! I mean, especially with everything that we have going on right now.
But that just means that getting enough sleep is even more important than ever before! Also, making sure that you are managing your stress levels is huge… not just for your physical health, but for your mental health as well.
4) Use smaller plates for portion control.
Have you ever heard that saying, “Your eyes are bigger than your stomach?”
Well, it’s kind of true. I always feel like it is, anyway.SPECIAL: This Scientific Trick Can Reduce Your Belly Fat By 8.5% in Just 12 Weeks…
Bigger plates can make your serving look smaller, which can lead to over-portioning meals. This trick is particularly helpful with food that isn’t as healthy.
When you put something on a smaller plate, the plate looks full. Therefore, you sort of trick your mind into seeing that as a full portion.
(By the way, it probably IS a full portion. Plates are pretty big these days!)
5) Slow down while you’re eating.
Take your time during meals! Enjoy it a little bit!
It turns out that your brain actually needs some time to register when you eat food. If you eat really fast, your brain might realize that your body is full WAY later than it would have if you had just slowed down.
I like to make sure I chew my food really well… and this sort of helps me slow down my meals. Eating slower has been shown to decrease how much you eat and makes you feel fuller sooner.
6) Don’t eat with electronics.
This is a big one for me… because I love eating with some good Netflix show on! But, it turns out that this isn’t the best for weight loss.
Eating with electronics around allows your mind to be focused on something besides the food… which can cause you to consume more calories, according to one study.TRENDING: This Massive “Mistake” Melted 48lbs Off Her Body (Click Here to See How)…
You might not even know it because the electronics are distracting you… but it’s likely that all this cool stuff we have in 2020 is causing overeating. Take some time and enjoy the meal – with the electronics off!
So, now that I’ve armed you with some super easy and effective ways to lose weight without exercise, what are you waiting for?
Come out of this tough situation as a better you! There are always ways to continue building towards living a healthier lifestyle.
7) Eat more protein.
Fortunately, losing weight isn’t all about cutting things out of your diet… like sugar or junk food. Losing weight is also about getting the right things into your diet.
One of those things your diet really NEEDS if you want to lose weight is protein.
Eating protein is a really important and powerful way to manage your appetite and control your weight. Protein helps you feel full… reduces hunger… and helps you eat fewer calories overall.
Research shows that this may be due to protein’s effect on hunger hormones. Hormones like ghrelin and GLP-1 tell your body when it’s feeling hungry… and eating protein can help suppress that hungry feeling.
So if you want to start feeling fuller and less hungry… add more protein to your diet! Protein-rich foods include eggs, chicken breasts, Greek yogurt, almonds, lentils, beans, quinoa, and fish.
Eating more protein can not only help you feel fuller… but can actually help your body burn more fat, too.
Yeah, it’s pretty shocking… but scientists have found that increasing your protein intake can burn up to 441 more calories per day. 
(Lose more weight by eating more? Yes, please!)
Of course, “protein-rich” foods include a variety of great snacks… such as nuts… yogurt… and even delicious, delicious CHEESE!
And here’s probably the most important part:
(Yeah, talk about a dream: just wake up… and see that the number on the scale keeps going down and down… 🙂 )
Now, eating more protein before bed is only one really easy tip to burn more calories passively at night…
And they take almost zero effort—the most intense one is literally pushing a button or turning a knob.
If that sounds like your kind of “exercise”… then I highly recommend this: 😉
