How to Lose Weight Fast Without Exercise (The Easy Way)

Let’s Get Started!

The easiest way is by changing your diet.

Here are the rules of engagement:

  1. Skip “white” carbohydrates: bread, rice, cereal, potatoes, pasta, and grains. Avoid eating anything white and you’re safe
  2. Eat the same few meals over and over again: mix and match but use only a few items (more below)
  3. Don’t drink calories: a glass or two of dry red wine per night is fine
  4. No fruit: avocado and tomatoes are exceptions (in moderation) but stay away from everything else
  5. Take one day/three meals off per week: I choose three meals per week as it allowed me more flexibility

As for the actual foods, mix and match from the following list, constructing each meal with one pick from each of the three groups:

Proteins: egg whites with 1–2 whole eggs for flavor, chicken breast or thigh, black beans, beef (preferably grass-fed), pork, fish

Legumes: lentils, pinto, read or soy beans

Vegetables: spinach, mixed veggies (such as broccoli, cauliflower, or any other cruciferous vegetables), sauerkraut, kimchee, asparagus, peas, green beans

You can eat as much as you like from that list. But keep it simple by repeating the same meals over and over again. This will save you time — you can cook multiple meals in one go (batching) — and money — you can buy in bulk.

Stick With the Diet

You know the theory and you might even stick with it for a few days. But the hard part is keeping it for long-term. Sometimes your strongest motivation is not enough.

What can you do in those situations?

Here are two simple hacks:

#1 Design Your Environment

  • Remove unhealthy food by hiding them from view in the back of a high cupboard. Stock your fridge with vegetables, lean meat, and water.
  • Don’t buy soft drinks or sweets. Out of sight, out of mind. Eating healthier starts at the supermarket.
  • If you want to automate healthier eating, buy a subscription of fresh, seasonal produce delivered to your door each week
  • Waiters and what other people ordered can pressure you into eating more than you otherwise might, such as appetizers, drinks or dessert. Make your decision before the waiter comes and order before others.
  • If you can, an even better option is to look at the restaurant menu online and make your decision in advance. Since portions in restaurants tend to be larger, order one main course and split or ask for a to-go box right away and stash a portion before you start.

#2 Design Your Defaults

  • Remove from the house food that isn’t on your diet or you know is unhealthy
  • Buy items from the outer edges of the grocery store. Healthy, wholesome foods are on the perimeter. Junk and processed foods tend to live in the aisles
  • Trick your brain into eating less per meal by using smaller plates and bowls
  • Plan your meals in advance so you always know what to eat each day. Use Sundays to cook for the entire week and freeze excess food
  • Do not keep alcohol at home. If you want to drink, you’ll have to go outside and buy it
  • Have a bottle next to your bed so you get in the habit of drinking water immediately after waking up
  • Keep another bottle at your desk throughout the day and fill with it cold water to energize your brain
  • Only have water at home. Ban everything else, especially juice and soda. Drink a glass of water before meals. It will also make you less hungry
  • Always order water when eating out, instead of soda. Bonus points: it’s cheaper. At restaurants, ask for salad as a side dish instead of french fries, potatoes, or rice.

Designing your environment and defaults will be especially helpful when your cravings are high. If there’s no chocolate at home, you probably won’t go out to get.

The more friction you add to a habit, the easier it is to quit it.

Weigh Yourself Every Day

Consistency is the key to develop habits and change behavior.

This is where a simple productivity hack by Jerry Seinfeld comes in handy. Seinfeld wanted to become a better comedian. So he decided to write new jokes every day. He was consistent with it. To help him motivate, he used a simple technique.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Find Your One Thing: we want to lose weight, so that’s going to be our thing
  2. Put Up a Calendar: hang a huge annual calendar at your workspace, office or home. If you prefer digital, use a spreadsheet
  3. Mark the Days: put a big X across each day when you devote time to working on your one thing. This creates a chain of X’s showing your progress. Focus on growing your chain longer and longer
  4. Keep the Chain Going: your only job is NOT to break the chain.

After a few days, you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt.

Using this productivity hack for weight loss, all you need to is weight yourself every single day at the same time. I recommend immediately after waking up.

Set up a reminder at the same time of your alarm clock at first and place the body weighing scale next to your bed, so it’s the first thing you see in the morning.

And if you forget to do it, remember: don’t skip twice in a row.

Set Up Your Tracker

Write your weight on your physical or digital calendar and soon enough it will look something like this:

The tool doesn’t really matter, as long as you do it every day. But a spreadsheet gives you an automatic third column that computes the variance in weight — how much you lose or gain each day.

I find that to be a deciding point to adopt a spreadsheet because it increases the awareness of your weight and its oscillations throughout time.

The Power of Awareness

Why go to the trouble of tracking your weight every day? Sounds like a silly idea.

The truth is, by constantly tracking your weight, two things will happen:

  • You will become more aware of the progress in your goal by celebrating small wins every day
  • Because the number is always on your mind, if your weight goes up, you will think twice before eating something out of the diet. Your brain will unconsciously do the work for you and stop you for a second right before you eat that chocolate

Let’s use this graph as an example. This is weight over time:

See what I mean by small wins every day? Look at that nice downward line in the first few weeks.
