How No Diet Diets work

It is possible to lose weight and not exercise – it can be done. Whether you want to lose 3 pounds, 30 pounds or 300, the same basic scientific laws will whether or not you will lose weight and if so exactly how fast you lose it. So an understanding of these scientific laws and a plan to put them into practice will make you lose weight without the need of any special diet plans, books, or medications.

The science on weight loss is surprisingly simple: energy in – energy out = weight lost or gained. It really is that painless because the amount of energy that we take in as food and the amount of energy we expend during the day, leaves us with more weight, or less. This energy we are talking about is measured in a term I’m sure you are familiar with, calories. If your weight remains constant, you are probably consuming the same amount of calories that you burn off each day. If you’re slowly getting bigger over time, then your calorie intake is greater than the number of calories you burn off throughout the day. And it doesn’t have to be by very much, even a hundred extra calories a day will increase your weight by over a stone during the course of a year.

Even if we don’t feel like it, we can control the amount of food we take in, so the consumption side of the equation of calories is something we may control. Also, we could also influence or control our output of energy, or the number of calories we burn off each day. The number of calories we burn each day is dependent upon two factors:

1. Our base metabolic rate (BMR), which is the the number of calories we use up simply by being alive and maintaining body functions.
2. Our level of physical activity.

Whilst there are some variations in these base rates as some people, mainly because of genetic factors. This means that an individual’s resting metabolic rate (BMR) could be slightly higher or lower than average. Also our existing weight plays a role in determining our BMR, basically more calories are required to maintain your body if you are heavier. For example a 130-pound person requires less calories to maintain their body weight than a person who weighs 260 pounds.

Lifestyle and work habits partially determine how many calories we need to maintain our existing weight. Not surprisingly, if your job involves any form of physical activity, you will, as a consequnece burn more calories in a day than someone who does not. For those who do not have jobs that require physical activity, an increased in physical activity would increase their metabolic rate.

Typically, the average woman in her forties who leads a reasonably sedentary lifestyle requires about 1,800 calories per day to maintain a normal weight. Whereas a man of the same age requires about 2,200 calories a day. Should they participate in a moderate level of physical activity will boost their ‘allowance’ by about 200 calories per day – which is not very many. This is why exercise is not really a successful route to weight loss. Research has shown that by far the most effective way to lose weight, without dieting is to make consistent and a very small difference to your eating habits.
