How can I get exercise to lose weight if it is hot outside?

Exercise when cooler: When the weather is hot, one can exercise early in the morning or later in the evening (be sure to use mosquito repellent spray if mosquitoes are in season). During the daytime, swimming is fine even in hot weather.

How to lose weight without exercise? I want to have slim hips how to get that.?

You can't: The same way you can get rich without working. Okay, I guess you can get rich if you win the lottery or inherit the money. But my point was that you can't expect to lose weight without exercising. There is a reason why they say "no pain, no gain." so don't be lazy. Get up and go for a walk. It will help your mood and slim your waist. ...Read more

However, you may need a stress echocardiogram to detect any possible dynamic obstruction when you exercise, or to unmask any serious heart rhythm disturbances, both of which should limit exercise. ...Read more

I want to lose weight, as dr said eat less exercise more. If I eat less, isn't my body get weak?

Losing weight: Your body requires a certain amount of caloric intake to survive, but anything extra is stored as fat. Track your food so you know exactly what you're eating (calories, protein, fat, etc) and start cutting out the extra. Adding exercise means you can eat more and not gain weight, or you can lose weight faster. You have to eat less than you burn in order to lose weight, period. ...Read more

To lose weight alone: You need 2 decrease caloric intake. A well balanced diet can do this. If you add an exercise program that includes cardio 1 day & a weight lifting on 2nd day and so on you will lose weight, but a program that includes hard work outs, while you lose fat you will gain muscle mass & strength & look more fit. But muscle is heavier than fat so weight loss may B negated, but you will look much better. ...Read more
