Can you lose weight just by exercising but not changing your eating habits?

I started going to the gym 3 hours a week, I don’t eat more than I normally do, but it has been 3 weeks, and I have only put on weight and just getting bulkier, especially my legs. Although I already feel more toned, and my muscles feel generally ‘tighter’ I am trying to lose some weight off my thighs and bum. I am 5’3, and weigh around 8st 9lbs.

    If you didn’t change anything about your eating habits, but increased your exercise, yes, you would eventually lose some weight. It would happen faster if you also ate less calories. If you are doing aerobic activity, you’ll lose fat everywhere, you can’t pick and choose where you lose fat.

    do more cardio rather than more muscle workouts if you are doing this… the weights etc. will bulk you up..
    Muscle weighs more than fat which is why you have put weight on.. this is a good thing though… people shouldn’t take much notice of their weight due to different weights of bones and muscle mass etc…
    Best thing to do would be to ask your gym if they have a weighing machine which tests your body fat.. this is the most important thing to know…

    Everything I’ve read says that when it comes to losing weight, diet is MORE important than exercise. Because if you think about it….one workout can be cancelled out by eating one snickers bar.

    So yeah. Unfortunately, it sounds to me you have to change your eating habits. Even if you do little things like illiminating coke, cheese, mayo, junk food in general, you WILL notice a difference.

    I have been through it all and know what’s it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can’t be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I’ve worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

    Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

    First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can’t eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising…

    This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it’s good for the heart.

    However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It’s so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I’ve found a great addition to help any one out, it’s a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don’t get all crazy on me and say diet pills don’t work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn’t meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It’s an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace. com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it’s the best pill I’ve tried and I’ve tried cupboards full. Now this doesn’t mean you have to follow my foot steps but I’ve successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

    Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

    No you can’t.
    avoid caffeine and diet pills containing caffeine
    I think the problem is you might eat too many calories e.g.: if you eat 200 calories but only work off 100 calories you will put weight on. If you eat 200 calories and work off 200 calories then you should stay the same weight. However, if you eat 200 calories and work off 300 calories you’ll lose weight. But weight loss is a gradual process it won’t happen over night.

    You cannot lose weight in just one area. The exercise will tone your muscles in that area, but you lose weight all over your body. You can lose weight just by exercising as long as you burn more calories than you consume.
