    If you already own swim trunks, a bike, or running shoes losing weight should cost you nothing. In fact, you would save money by eating a little less food.

    To lose fat:
    2. DO NOT STARVE YOURSELF! Unless you are 4ft tall, a 1,200 calorie a day diet is DANGEROUS and won’t work in the long run.
    3. Calculate your BMR. Do a google search. A good calculator would ask for your age, height, weight, and activity level.
    4. Eat healthy and eat about 500 calories a day less than your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Your BMR is how many calories you need per day to maintain your current weight.
    5. Eat 5-6 small meals a day. This keeps your metabolism up. Each meal should include fruits, veggies, water, and protein.
    5. Drink at least 64oz (8 8oz glasses) of water a day. No soda (that includes diet soda).
    6. Do light/moderate cardio 3 to 5 times a week for 30 to 45 minutes each time. Running, bicycling, and swimming are great for this.
    7. Do some strength training to make sure you lose fat and not muscle. Don’t worry; you won’t look like the hulk if you lift weights. As you can’t afford a gym, just do home stuff like pushups, pullups/chinups, squats, and prone bridges.
    8. You should lose about 1-2lbs per week. If you lose more than that, chances are the rest is stool, water weight, or even muscle mass.
    9. Weigh yourself only once a week at the same time (ie every Friday morning). Your weight fluctuates a lot during any 24hour period because of water and food intake and also bowel movements.
    Be patient and be smart. If you follow this guideline you will be very happy with your results.

    That’s easy. Go walking or jogging around where you live. If you have cable TV workout to the various workout programs on television (or record them to workout with later). You can also buy or rent a plethora of workout videos and DVDs. Go bicycling, swimming, rollerblading, trikking, etc.

    There are MANY things you can do (as you can see) and I’m sure you can come up with more. Many require no monetary investment other than a good quality pair of athletic shoes.

    On top of regular exercise (shoot for at least 1 hr a day, at least 5 days a week), watch what you eat (cut out all the junk food and beverages).

    Good luck!

    When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
    If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
    will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
    underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
    exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
    diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
    after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
    your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
    you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey
    cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your
    diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
    calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
    start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
    most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
    lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
    disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
    your problem areas for men and women. It’s not necessarily to become a
    bodybuilder or even join a gym – a couple of dumbbells will help you
    to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).
