Avoid carbs or sugar: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Partially: Any exercise can contribute to weight loss. Stationary cycling can burn 400-500 calories/hr; one pound is 3500 calories, so you would have to exercise 8-9 hrs to burn up 1 pound. Diet is a necessary component to weight loss. There is no way to 'spot exercise' to lose fat in any certain area. Good luck. Consistency is the key. Exercise and diet both play important roles in weight loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
