Looking for easy tips to lose weight without exercise?
In this video, I’m gonna share with you 5 of my best tips. They’re so effective, I’ve never seen them not work.
First, I’m gonna tell you what you shouldn’t do.
You shouldn’t just eat less and do some bicep curls at the gym. You also shouldn’t just crank the speed on the treadmill to 10 and hold on dear life.
That’s not really helpful and you’ve probably tried it before. It doesn’t work long term.
Now you’ve probably also seen some people measure every ounce of their food. They track everything. All they do is meal prep until the cows come home. Their entire lives revolves around food.
That strategy might be effective for some people. But if you have 3 kids, a dog, a full time job, while trying trying to have a social life, it’s not really the most practical way of doing things.
Again, it works for SOME people. But my idea for this post is that if somebody reads this and applies everything they learned, are they gonna lose weight?
I can really only speak for myself. These are the exact same things that I do up to this day and it’s been 8 years since my initial weight loss transformation.
They also the exact same tips give to my students inside my Fat Loss Accelerator program. Based on the success stories of my students, I’m pretty confident that they work.
5 Tips To Lose Weight Without Exercise
1. Cut out snacks
I want you to eat 3 meals a day like a normal human being.
Don’t eat anything in between meals. Avoid the free donuts in the office kitchen. Don’t eat that protein bar at 2pm because, “Bro I need some protein.!”
Stop going to the vending machine and stop drinking pre workout or having a pre workout meal. I don’t need to hear that you need it to fuel your workout.
There is absolutely no reason why you should ever need to eat snacks in between meals. There are zero studies that proves this is beneficial to the human body.
And we snack for two reasons.
A.) We eating out of boredom or just out of habit. The problem is, we don’t really snack on the healthiest food,
B.) We’re hungry mid morning or mid afternoon because we’re not satiated from our last meal. Which leads me to tip number two.
2. Eat fat, protein, and non-starchy vegetables for every meal
We can argue until the cows come home about what the best diet is.
It’s almost become a religion. You’ve got the Paleo crowd, the plant based movement, some people love keto, other people take it up a notch and go full carnivore.
But there is one undeniable truth in all of this. Sorry, vegans and vegetarians. We evolved to eat plants and animals.
So, I want you to eat this way. Always have a combination of fat, protein, and as much non-starchy vegetables as you’d like for every meal.
For example, ground beef and asparagus with some olive oil. Chicken and salad sprinkled with some cheese. Salmon and cauliflower with macadamia nuts. Bacon and eggs with avocado. Delicious.
I’m going to tell you a very important concept you need to understand.
Weight loss in its very essence is about controlling hunger, not counting calories. Why? Because being hungry sucks.
Controlling hunger is about activating your satiety hormones. Every time you eat fat and protein, you activate Cholecystokinin (CCK) and Peptide YY (PYY) which are your key satiety hormones.
If you eat a lot of non starchy vegetables, they’re high in fibre which activates the stretch effect in your stomach. In short, you feel full.
This is why telling someone to just eat less is the worst advice on the planet. Because it makes you hungry. And you can only fight hunger for so long. You can’t fight your physiology. It will always win.
If you always eat fat, protein, and a lot of green leafy non starchy vegetables, that’s gonna keep you satiated longer and you won’t feel the need to snack in between meals.
3. No liquid calories
Stop drinking soda, milk, juice, fruit smoothies, crappy frappies and choco mocha lattes from Starbucks, and stop drinking so much beer. They don’t call it a beer gut for nothing.
Don’t putting water enhancers in your water and stop drinking “zero calorie” soda. All the things I mentioned offer zero nutritional value. They’re extremely easy to consume and over consume.
If you’re someone who drinks this stuff and you ditch it, you’re gonna lose so much weight it’s not even funny.
What should you drink instead? Water.
4. Start an intermittent fasting routine
I talk about intermittent fasting a lot on my Youtube channel so make sure you check out my other videos about it.
But if you’re new to my content, let me just ask you this. Level with me here.
What do you think will happen if you don’t eat? Because this is the reverse of snacking.
You’re probably gonna lose weight. A lot of weight. Specifically, body fat.
No, you’re not gonna die when you do this. You’re not gonna wither away. Your metabolism won’t shut down. That’s a myth.
Still not convinced? Think about it this way. You have at least 100,000 calories worth of stored energy in your butt, thighs, and belly. I
t’s not just there for looks. That’s what your body uses for energy when you take a break from eating.
The simplest way to get started with this is by skipping breakfast.
Just drink black coffee or put a table spoon of heavy cream, not skim milk, to your coffee if you can’t drink it black. Then think of your body burning fat for “breakfast.”
I also want you to think of this as putting small deposits to the bank so you can withdraw it and have access to tip number 5.
5. Schedule one cheat meal per week
Let’s talk about Psychology 101.
The more you tell someone they can’t have something, the more they want it. I’m a big believer that you can have it, just not all the the time.
You can call this whatever you want. You can call it your re-feed day, your treat day, cheat day, or whatever.
There’s even studies that shows that this helps people stick to their weight loss plan longer. And it makes sense. It keeps people sane.
You can’t tell someone they have to go cold turkey on the foods they love. It doesn’t work.
If you tell me I can’t have cheesecake forever, I won’t listen to you. So you can have everything. Just not all at once.
6. Bonus tips to lose weight without exercise
Get 8-9 hours of quality sleep.
I have literally never met another human being that complained about getting a good night’s sleep.
There’s a reason why we evolved to sleep for a third of our lives. It’s when the body repairs itself.
If you don’t get a good night’s sleep, you just don’t function as well the next day.
Important fat loss and satiety hormones get completely out of whack ike ghrelin which is your hunger hormone.
It also negatively affects leptin which is the hormone that signals that you’re full. As well as cortisol which is your stress hormone, just to name a few.
You don’t really hear a lot of people say, “Man, I’m really craving broccoli!”, after a late night out. No. Instead, we crave the worst foods.
We crave McDonald’s, or something sugary, and then it just negatively snowballs for the rest of the day. That’s when you start snacking and you start drinking something sugary.
There’s even studies that shows even a few days of sleep deprivation can cause the subjects to have pre-diabetic symptoms. Luckily, it was easily reversed once they fixed their sleep.
None of the tips to lose weight without exercise will work if you don’t get this part right. And it’s so easy to six. It’s such a long hanging fruit. Get some sleep.
At the end of the day, weight loss doesn’t have to be rocket science like some people make it out to be. It can really be this simple.
