How to lose over 40 pounds without going to the gym?


Here’s how I did it.

Intermittent Fasting:

To lose over 40 pounds using intermittent fasting like I did, you’ll want to focus on eating a healthy, well-balanced diet during your eating periods. This means cutting back on processed, high-calorie foods and focusing on whole, nutrient-rich options instead. Some examples of healthy foods to include in your diet are:

– Fresh fruits and vegetables

– Lean proteins such as chicken, fish, and tofu

– Whole grains like quinoa, rice, and oats

– Healthy fats like avocados, nuts, and olive oil

In terms of your intermittent fasting schedule, there are a few different approaches you can take. One popular method is the 16/8 method! Which involves restricting your eating to an 8-hour window each day and fasting for the remaining 16 hours. For example, you might eat between 12pm and 8pm, and then fast from 8pm to 12pm the next day.

In addition to following an intermittent fasting schedule and eating a healthy diet. There are also other lifestyle changes you can make to support your weight loss efforts.

Here are a few ideas:

– Drink plenty of water: Staying hydrated can help you feel full and satisfied, which can make it easier to stick to your diet.

– Get enough sleep: Lack of sleep can lead to weight gain, so make sure to get at least 7-9 hours of sleep per night.

– Find ways to manage stress: Chronic stress can lead to weight gain, so it’s important to find ways to manage it. This could include things like meditation, yoga, or taking breaks to relax.

– Stay active: While going to the gym isn’t necessary for weight loss, it’s still important to stay active. This could mean going for walks. Or doing bodyweight exercises at home, or finding other activities you enjoy. (for me it was 10K steps and 100 push-ups daily).

By combining intermittent fasting with a healthy diet and lifestyle, you can effectively lose weight and improve your overall health. Remember to be patient and consistent, and don’t get discouraged if you don’t see immediate results. Weight loss is a journey and it’s important to focus on progress, not perfection.
