Can I lose weight without cardio workout?
Contrary to popular believe. weight lifting is more efficient than cardio for weight loss anyway.
Although both cardio and weight lifting are healthy, both will increase your appetite, so without controlling your diet you will most likely gain weight with either form of exercise.
Therefor regardless of which form of exercise you choose, you'll still have to watch what you eat. It turns out that insulin is the hormone that forces glucose into your fat cells where it is converted to fat and stored as well as the hormone that prevents fat from being removed from your fat cells to be used for energy.
Therefor the commonly recommended low fat diets with 4 small meals a day is the WORST thing you can do for weight loss. Instead you should cut out all the carbs from your diet and eat one meal a day. You need to eat low protein too, because protein can also cause an insulin spike. You should therefor eat no more than 0.5g of protein per pound of lean body mass.
Lean body mass would be your weight without your body fat added to it. Or the weight of your muscle, bones, and organs. A typical healthy thin person is around 20% body fat. If you are overweight, your body fat could be 40% to 50% or more.
You do need calories, so if you cut the carbs in your diet, you'll have to eat fat. Eggs and cheese are very good foods that are high in fat and low in carbs. Eggs have no carbs while cheese has almost no carbs.
Unfortunately they have been adding sugar to everything we eat. Even bacon HAS SUGAR ADDED!!! So, look at the ingredients of everything you eat.
Sugar comes in many forms. Sugar, Turbinado, Maltose, Dextrose, Honey, Agave Nectar, Concentrated Fruit Juice, and the list goes on. READ THE INGREDIENTS. Even some Stevia (which is supposed to have zero calories) sometimes has added dextrose. DO NOT BUY ANY 0 CALORIE SWEETENERS THAT CONTAIN DEXTROSE!!!!
