Loose weight with minimum effort

We asked Philip Stanforth, a professor of exercise science at the University of Texas and the executive director of the Fitness Institute of Texas, whether diet or fitness was more important for weight loss, and his answer surprised us.

"Studies tend to show that in terms of weight loss, diet plays a much bigger role than exercise," said Stanforth.

Here's why: Exercise requires time and consistent effort, and it takes longer to see its results, said Stanforth. It also burns far fewer calories (and takes far more time) than most people think.

Alternatively, there are several high-sugar, high-fat, high-calorie foods that we can cut from our diets to see a pretty big change in our waistline, sometimes in a fairly short time period. Stanforth puts it this way:

"You'd have to walk 35 miles (56 kilometres) to burn 3,500 calories. That's a lot of walking. But if you look at eating, a Snickers bar might have, say, 500 calories. It's going to be a lot easier to cut the Snickers bar than to do 5 miles (8 kilometres) of walking every day."

Still, exercise may come into play later on. Other studies, for example, suggest that people who lose weight and keep it off eat right and work out regularly.

Plus, exercise has other benefits, from helping to boost our mood and protect our bodies from the detrimental effects of ageing to helping us manage the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. And building and maintaining muscle can often mean your body will actually burn more calories throughout the day.

So if you want to lose weight, consider adjusting your diet. And if you want to keep it off, get moving.

As a doctor, meal portion and have some healthy snacks during the day.

And SPORT of course. Without sport it will be extreamly hard. Go to the gym or search some training programs.

Good luck :D

Perhaps one way to curb the habit of running a lot is to go to the gym and run, than sprint, than run again. There is variety and different ways of doing something. Wright lifting, there are reps, and sets and all sorts of different sizes of weights to lift and train with. Personally i do what i said. I do not train for long in the gym, perhaps 30 minutes, 3/4 days a week. But when i do train, i am a very hard worker in the gym. Good luck to all.

Totally agree with the professor.
The only way to lose weight is to take in less calories than you are burning off. So the low effort way would be to eat just enough calories to sustain your health and to move around more. Whether it be simply going for a walk more often or doing yoga, etc.

Calories taken in < Calories burned out. That is the standard rule. But, Diet plays a pivotal role. Nutrition is the one that does 70% of the job
