There are a variety of methods and possibilities offered by which one can supposedly lose weight without diet and exercise. The fact is that fat is only lost if the body is supplied with fewer calories than it consumes. This is best achieved through a healthy and balanced diet and physical exercise.
In fact, a special diet or exercise is not absolutely necessary. There are, however, various preparations or recommendations that can help you lose weight on their own. These are often not very promising and should be considered critically.
How can you lose weight without diet and exercise?
In order to lose weight, the body must consume more calories than it is supplied with. Each person has a very individual calorie requirement, which depends on various factors and can even vary from day to day. A distinction is also made between a basal metabolic rate and calorie consumption through activities and exercise in everyday life.
If you want to lose weight, you can therefore reduce your calorie intake or increase your consumption. Theoretically, you could lose weight without exercise (see: Losing weight without exercise), if you reduce your calorie intake enough. Sport and a diet are possibilities but not a prerequisite to achieve this. Measures through which you can also contribute to losing weight without sport and diet are Regular meals (preferably three a day without snacks) Diet with long-satiating foods such as wholemeal products and fibre-rich food (vegetables, salad) Avoid sugar and sweetened foods and drinks to a large extent Promote exercise in everyday life, for example climbing stairs instead of escalators or lifts; cycling instead of driving a car Reduced intake of carbohydrates (pasta, rice, potatoes), especially in the evening Avoid alcohol Keep an eye on calorie intake, keep a dietary diary if necessary

Evaluation – How serious are such offers?
It is not possible to make a general statement as to whether offers to lose weight without diet and exercise are serious or not, but these must be assessed individually. Basically, weight loss can only be achieved if the body is supplied with fewer calories through food than it needs. Only then is the body consumed by the fat reserves to produce energy.
The best way to achieve long-term success is a balanced, calorie-reduced diet and higher energy consumption through sufficient physical exercise. Offers that take these general principles into account can be quite serious. On the other hand, “miracle cures” that are frequently offered, which are intended to enable people to lose weight without dieting or exercise simply by taking additional supplements, can be considered absolutely dubious. Even the consumption of diet shakes cannot lead to success if the total number of calories consumed is still higher than required.
