How can I lose weight if I can’t exercise?

Unfortunately, there isn’t a simple, straightforward solution. You’ve got to balance the food you eat with the way you exercise. You might have to go cold turkey for a while, but eventually you’ll be able to see a significant weight loss. There are also several studies showing that doing regular workouts is important and may even help you to lose some of the weight you’ve gained.

To make matters more complicated, you don’t even know if your eating style plays a role in your weight loss efforts.

4) Lots of vegetables (beets, tomatoes, zucchini, green and yellow squash).

5) Low portions of dairy (soy milk, cheese, yogurt).

6) Whole grains (whole, brown, and whole wheat).

7) Moderate portions of nuts and seeds.

8) Large salads that don’t contain a lot of meat.

9) A variety of vegetables.

10) Low amounts of salt (avoid high sodium).

12) Some fruits.

13) Cabbage, cauliflower, peppers, and other leafy greens.

14) Beans (green beans, navy beans, kidney beans, chickpeas, lentils).

15) Whole grain breads (whole wheat and white
