No exercise !: The most important way to lose weight is through an excellent nutrition plan which focuses on eating a low carb/low glycemic index diet.Don't focus on counting calories.Exercise is good for your health but not the main way to lose weight.

Depends on your…: …personal taste in music. Generally something upbeat, with strong rhythm that makes you want to move to the music. Disco works for some; rock for others, latin rhythms for still others. Try a mix of each to find what works best for you. Anything that will motivate you to move.

How can you lose weight without exercising very much (or at all)?

Calorie count: Losing or gaining weight is a balancing act. Calories in versus calories out. If you take in more calories than you use in a day then you gain weight if you use more calories(like exercising) then you take in(eat) you lose weight. This does not hold true if you have any medical conditions that would change the equation.

Whole foods: Concentrate on lean meats and fresh vegetables. These are more filling foods that are healthier and lower in calories. Learn to shop on the periphery of the store and not down the isles where most of the processed, fast food is located. The ideal workout is any activity that gets your heart rate up for 30 min, whether it be walking, biking, swimming, etc. Being consistent with this is what works.

Start slow: First off...Congrats on making the decision! keep realistic goals and start with low impact activities like swimming and walking. Keep a log of your activities including the amount of time and how you would rate yourself (was it easy or did you struggle). As your stamina and confidence increase, move on to increasing distance and time. If you can, find a buddy to exercise with!
