How To Get Slim Without Exercise

There are many people out there who would love to know how to get slim without exercise.
Many people believe that it is not possible to lose weight and get slimmer without doing some sort of exercise program. While personally I would always advise that you should do some exercise, because it not only burns lots of calories, it provides countless other health benefits.
However the fact is that there are a lot of people who do not like to exercise. It may be that they simply do not have the time to work out, or they simply hate the thought of having to push themselves day after day.
Regardless of your reasons, you'll be glad to know that it is possible to get slim without exercise, and its all about what you eat and when you eat.
I am not talking about starving yourself, taking diet pills, or the latest miracle diet. I am talking about manipulating your brain to stop those hunger pangs which many people are familiar with.
The first step is a simple one which you will already be aware of. Stop eating foods which contain a lot of sugar, and unhealthy fat. If you keep eating foods that you know are not god for you, this will not work.
The second thing is not to skip meals, this will not help in any shape or form, and your brain at some point during the day will force you to look at high calorie foods, because it thinks that as you have not been getting food, you must be starving and you need to focus on high calorie foods, because you need them. Your willpower will only take you so far, but in the end it is not going to beat something that is naturally hardwired into your brain.
Always eat breakfast, and make sure that you have some healthy foods which are high in protein. Scientific studies have shown that your stomach stays fuller for longer if it has protein in it.
This is how to get slim without exercise;
When you are full, a message is sent to your brain which tells it that you are not hungry. This results in some hormones being released which also tell the brain that there is no need for hunger pangs. However if you have protein in the stomach, a lot more hormones are released when the message goes to your brain, and these hormones stay around for longer, keeping the hunger pangs for longer.
Try eating some toast or cereal for breakfast, and then see how hungry you feel at lunch time. The next day eat some eggs for breakfast, and you will find that when lunchtime comes around you will not feel as hungry and you will eat less.
Another important factor is that to make sure that you get something to eat every 3 or 4 hours.
This does not have to be a full meal, just a small healthy snack or a piece of fruit will be ideal. This way your metabolism senses that you are getting calories on a regular basis, and it will burn them more effectively, because as it is getting food every few hours it doesn't need to store them as an emergency.
If you go too many hours without food, the primitive section of the brain will think that there is a problem, and this is when it starts sending you messages about how nice those high fat and high sugar foods look. Your body will also slow down the burning of calories as it believes there is a shortage of food, and will be more likely to store whatever calories it gets as fat.
So, eat protein at breakfast, eat more frequently, make your meals small, and you will get slim without exercise.
Contrary to what many people are told, it is definitely possible to get slim without exercise. There are a lot of diets available today. Many fall by the wayside because they do not provide the results that they claim.

  1. Love your goals and many of your ideas are pretty good. The best one is that you tell people they do not need to exercise in order to lose weight.You are right. It is true.
    The biggest reason people do not lose weight is because they have always been told they need to exercise to lose weight.Wrong, now if we remove this barrier, what is the way to go?
    This is what you address here. Go to and get others ideas.
