7 Ways to Have a No Diet Approach and Still Lose Weight ...

Tara

As a successful personal trainer for over a decade, I have changed countless lives all with a no diet approach because I believe diets do not work. If you are on a diet, this is often a temporarily solution as opposed to a lifelong, healthier lifestyle change. And most people go on extremely restrictive diets that are not realistic to stick with, so they find themselves deprived and disgusted and then they fall off their program. So how do you lose weight and get great results without being on a diet? Here is my no diet approach to help you lose weight and transform your life:

Combat Your Genetics

Based on our genetics we all have a fast, slow or middle acting metabolism, so does that mean we are stuck at our current weight for life? Absolutely not. Combat your slow metabolism by exercising more and eating more mini healthy meals. You can combat your genetics by making healthy changes and still have a no diet approach to life.

2

Get More Activity

Stop sitting down and writing what you should be doing and get active to start doing it. If you get more physical activity by aiming to exercise for 45 minutes to one hour four to six days a week, you will begin to see the weight melt off. So get moving and you will have great results with a no diet approach to life!

3

Exercise with More Intensity

Continual research supports that exercising with greater intensity produces greater weight loss results, so what are you waiting for? Start pushing yourself in your workouts and if you do have the endurance to do this for longer, go for intervals. This will also provide you will ample recovery to rest and then begin again. And you will see results without stressing while being on a diet!

4

Eat Healthier

Not having to diet does not mean you can eat whatever you want, whenever you want; be mindful of your food choices. Make sure to eat mini meals of veggies, whole grains and fruits and never eat past 8pm. Listen to your hunger cues rather than eating out of emotions or boredom. And eat healthier to a leaner and lovelier you!

5

Make Little Changes

Little changes make a big difference, so why are you not doing them? Make over your refrigerator by stocking it with fruits and veggies and remove all temptation. Dedicate a room in your home for your fitness workouts. Lacking the room for fitness equipment? No worries, you can use a small area to do fitness DVDs, abs, weights, and cardio in place. This is a great way to meet your weight loss goals!

6

Drink More Water

If you drink more you will find yourself less hungry, you will have more energy and this will aid in your weight loss goals. So how much water should you be drinking? Based on your activity level you should drink between 8-12 glasses of water (more on hot days and when you are exercising). This will also help to eliminate bloating and help your muscles to recover more efficiently from your workouts.

7

Surround Yourself by Support

Let me just tell you, fit friends rock! I have a lot of friends all of varying activity levels but my fit friends really get me because they support me in my workout goal and never judge. Some may call it obsessed but they (along with myself) call it dedicated. And we all support one another with our goals and achievements!

Hope my tips will help you to lose weight without the stress of being on a diet, and live the life you deserve. So tell me, what are your weight loss goals and what motivates you?

That's what I've done, more water carry a bottle with me, do some weights in my bedroom and put more healthy veg and fruit in the fridge, I find the word diet makes me eat more ! This way you could loose wight without thinking the word diet !!

Best article I've seen! I'm going to try all the steps, even drinking up to 12 glasses of water a day. But I'm one of those people that if I get tempted by food I'll eat it (I also have a chocolate problem; seriously I feel like that one fish from spongebob -.-) but I feel like my food temptation is what's been messing me up. But oh well, I'm going to try to do these steps and see if I get results

Loving this article! I'm gonna try it, I plan to get rid of my belly fat! :)

Thanks I love it! I'd been planning for a diet but I just can't cuz I'm young and mom don't allow me to make my food lesser than it is. I'm not fat nor very slim and fit. I don't have enough time with all my home works and studies as I'm in the eighth standard. So is it ok to just exercise the normal one with running for one hour while studying? I'm very mindful about my food choices except sweets... I loose my control when I just see it, but sometimes I try to ignore it and drink water.

Being more active always helps !

If you feel hungry, wait at least 10 minutes and do something to distract yourself like paint your nails or curl your hair! You'll soon forget about being hungry as it could just be boredom :)

Love love your article. I'm your classic try it starvation diet girl. They never work for long but I've struggled my whole life. After having2 kiddos it really is hanging on. I was once over 240 (got down to 159 on my own hard work) and so unhappy. Now I'm 157 and still unhappy. I just want to get to a place where I don't have to "try" "just be". I get impatient. Biggest downfall. I was on a reality show and that really hurt my self-esteem. It came off so quickly there that it's hard to let that go. You inspired me to stick with what I know and preach to everyone else. Now I'm going to start listening to myself. Thank you. I need a good workout buddy like you ;). I'll settle for your wonderful inspiring words. Keep posting please.
