My Weigh Less

Lose Weight While Sitting On The Sofa… Maybe it’s Not A Dream

Do I need exercise to lose weight? If you’ve ever struggled to lose weight, no doubt you will have heard the advice to “Eat less and move more!” ad nauseam! The truth is however, successful weight loss is a lot more to do with what you are eating than how much exercise you are doing. The winning formula is close to 80% what goes into your mouth and 20% how much you move.

Exercise makes weight loss easier

This blog was written by Martin and Marion Shirran. Together they have thousands of hours of experience, using their unique therapy to successfully help people lose weight. We have an additional blog dedicated to weight gain during Covid that you may find of interest, take a look from this link.

Do I Need Exercise to Lose Weight?

Do you hate exercise? That’s not a problem! To answer the question can I lose weight without exercise? Basically, yes you can! The even better news is that doing too much exercise can actually make it harder for you to lose weight. Shocking but true! Strenuous exercise puts your body into a state of stress, which leads you to store more fat. The My Weigh Less Treatment is particularly popular with Wheelchair users, see this page.

Diet to Lose Weight

Research has shown that prolonged, very high intensity exercise causes an increase in cortisol levels circulating in the blood. In contrast, low intensity exercise leads to a decrease. However, exercise does also stimulate the production of endorphins in the brain, which gives you the natural feel-good factor. Maybe you’re better off going for a leisurely stroll, rather than sweating it out in the gym…

Can I Lose Weight ‘With’ Exercise?

Even on the move, the human body is extremely energy efficient. Surprisingly your body runs on the same amount of energy as a simple standard light bulb! So you would have to run an incredible half marathon just to burn the 1080 calories contained in a Big Mac Combo Meal!

Obese Children need to exercise

You can’t outrun a bad diet!

Let’s compare your body to a car for a moment. A typical car gets between 15 and 30 miles to the gallon, and a gallon of petrol contains about 31,000 calories. So, if a human being could drink petrol instead of eating food, to take in calories, (not a pleasant thought!), they could run an amazing 300 miles on just one gallon of petrol!

In other words, the reality is that however much exercise you do, you can’t outrun a bad diet. Consequently, a person weighing 185 pounds would have to do a brisk 30-minute walk to burn off the number of calories in a small bag of Walker’s cheese and onion crisps. How could anyone be bothered to do this to try and lose weight? Exercise does of course help to overcome depression, we have a dedicated page asking if obesity in fact causes depression take a look here.

How About Paying Up Front!

One unusual idea is paying in advance. Basically, decide what you want to eat, it can be anything , then work out the number of calories it contains. Then you pay up-front by way of exercise. Afterwards, if you still want it, then eat it. So, if a bar of chocolate contains 250 calories, before you eat it you must run up the stairs 42 times. Quite energy expensive then don’t you think….?

So Can You Lose Weight Without Exercise

But it’s not all bad news about exercise. Research indicates that a pound of lean muscle burns 7-10 calories per day, whereas a pound of fat only burns 2–3 calories per day. Therefore If you get rid of body fat and replace it with muscle mass, it will help you to burn more calories, which might just make it a bit easier to lose weight too.

My Weigh Less on Netflix

Watching Netflix all Day and Losing Weight

Yes you can watch Netflix and lose weight! So you could sit down and binge watch the latest series on Netflix for 24 straight hours. During that time, with an average BMI, you would naturally burn around 1,600 calories. Therefore, if you didn’t eat a thing, but simply sat still, the next day you would have lost weight….. but only about six ounces!

Keep an eye on your weight loss each week.
