      Hi there

      Well, I just lost 1 stone and my boyfriend lost more than 3… and no weight rebound or exercise involved! All we did was change our eating habits. We eat more healthy and less now – and we count how many calories we eat and stick to the recommended limits (1500 cal a day for women and 2000 for men).

      It’s all about healthy eating! But you should also talk to your parents and get advice from a doctor.

      But yes, it’s possible – I’m proof of it! 😉

      Yes, but it will take twice as long as it would if exercise was involved. Weight loss is pretty straighforward (unless you have a medical condition that causes the excess wieght) – Eat fewer calories than you use up. Obviously exercise uses up more calories so by exercising you lose weight more quickly.

      However, if you don’t want to exercise, you can still lose weight without having a rebound effect but it means being very disciplined about what you eat AFTER you’ve lost the weight, i.e. carrying on with a low calorie diet.

      Hope that answers it!
