Is it possible to lose fat with exercise alone?

I really want to lose the flab on my stomach and make my abs visible. But I hate dieting! I try to diet and just get so hungry that I end up eating a lot. Is it possible to burn this fat with exercise alone? Also what kind of exercises can I do?

    u will NEVER get abs without dieting. Intense cardio can help burn fat yes, but diet is key to fat loss.

    losing fat isnt easy or fun, there no easy way to get there.

    just losing some fat is one thing, but getting abs takes hardcore dieting

    Sure. You just have to do more of it. The key to losing weight is to expend more calories than you take in. Eating takes in calories and exercise expends them. If you normally eat 2000 calories in a day you just need to exercise enough to use more than 2000 (keep in mind you burn about that much just through normal activities without the exercise). Dieting just helps by decreasing the amount you take in. It is not necessary as long as you are exercising more.

    Yes, provided you burn more calories than you take in. Swimming burns the most calories out all exercises, but you can also jog, push ups, sit ups, pull ups.

    no way!!
    you can exercise every single day but
    if you don’t eat healthy then you’ll never lose weight!!!
    I don’t believe in diets.
    But I do believe in always eating healthy.
    Also frequently eating very small portions of healthy food throughout the day (like every 2 hours or something like that) not only speeds up your metabolism but satisfies hunger. Also eat more organic foods.
    Drink more filtered or distilled water instead of sodas and juices packed of sugar. Avoid eating a lot of meat. I make vegetables my main dish and meat as a side dish. You won’t believe how many ah-mazing delicious dishes you can make out of veggies. You just have to get creative. There are tons of recipes you can find online!
    And exercise is important too of course 🙂

    you will lose SOME fat, but definitely no abs without “dieting”

    but I hope you don’t have the wrong idea about “dieting” — it’s more like, healthy eating… physically healthy and fit people DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT DO CRASH DIETS!!!! They make no sense as people will not eat that way for the rest of their lives, yes you may lose a few pounds with them, but you will definitely gain them back and maybe even more…

    instead it’s more like “healthy eating” it’s actually not as bad as you may think… how is it that you eat now that you absolutely cannot change at all?? by you saying “you get so hungry and end up eating a lot” sounds to me like you’ve been going about it the wrong way… i would say I’m healthy (5’2 115 lbs f) but i LOVE food, like all kinds of food, so I DEFINITELY am not the salad/no fast food kinda girl… but I do watch the QUALITY of my food…

    so look at the food you eat – if you are eating any breads, make sure they’re whole grain/whole wheat – if you’re eating meats, try to make most of them lean meats like fish/chicken/turkey/ (and there are good substitutes out there for regular stuff like turkey burgers are delish and turkey bacon etc etc you just need to try them!) definitely incorporate fruits and VEGETABLES… and if you’re like my boyfriend who cannot eat vegetables because he feels like a “rabbit” try different ways of cooking them, like grilling veggies are so yummy! just google up healthy meals and tons of actually delicious stuff will come up… things that ARE filling without the empty calories…

    and very importantly! DO have your “cheat days” because not only do they provide motivation and something to look forward so that you don’t cheat during the other days, they actually do help you lose weight believe it or not, it helps your metabolism and kinda shocks it in a way which is a good thing, and by ‘cheat days’ i mean once or twice a week eat practically whatever you want (not too crazy though) but you know like me i eat healthy and exercise during the week, then weekend rolls around and there’s mcdonalds and all that good stuff lol!

    so good luck and please really look into eating healthy good foods, NO DIETS diets are bad! and remember importantly eat breakfast to get your body out of starvation mode…

    good luck 🙂 contact me if you need to!

    Yes you can loose fat by exercise alone, the problem is that you can’t loose as much as you want by exercise alone. Approximately 1 out of every 2 pounds you loose is from diet. When I say diet I don’t mean something you only do for a few weeks. Diets don’t work, lifestyle choices do. Yes you will have to do lots of cardio to burn that fat. But you will probably not have a real six-pack without some adjustment to what you eat. The key is that you don’t have to completely cut yourself off from the foods you enjoy, just watch how often and how much. Try something like drinking a tall glass of water 5-10 minutes before a meal or desert as it might help you not take as much. As I always say, more is not necessarily better. What I mean is that doing a few ab exercises with strict form will give you more benefit then just doing crunches til your abs explode or you pass out. You need to mix in cardio with your ab workouts. For maximum caloric expenditure you want a varied program. Don’t just run at the same pace for 30 minutes. Instead of spending your money on the miracle pill that these jokers keep posting in every quest to sell their crap, try 2 or 3 sessions with a good personal trainer at a local gym. In 2 sessions, I can give you the basic idea of how to use zone training in light of your MHR (maximum heart rate) and current fitness level to progressively help you burn fat more effectively with the time you have. Hope this helps =)
