Losing weight without wanting to go on a diet
Congratulations! You are interested in "losing weight without wanting to go on a diet". We would have chosen the same option. In the long run we feel that "losing weight without going on a diet" is the only sensible way to lose weight.
One can more or less lose weight healthily with every diet. The only question is how long does this hard earned work last. Many scientific studies have already shown that only very few people have managed to lose weight on a long term basis. This fact is slowly but surely being acknowledged.
Diets cause weight fluctuation and many people are not aware that this is very unhealthy. Weight fluctuation reduces life expectancy a lot more than being overweight.

Losing weight without going on a diet
How does "losing weight without going on a diet" work?
First of all it is necessary to understand that long term weight loss is only possible by completely changing one's eating habits. Those who are overweight usually have wrong eating habits and/or do not do enough exercise (there are of course a few exceptions). It does not matter what diet or how many diets are used, as long as these causes are not dealt with one will never be able to lose weight on a long term basis.
In other words all diets are ineffective if you do not manage to change your life and eating habits permanently. This is not easy. If it is not possible for you to do this, then it is a lot healthier for you to just accept your current weight, instead of starting one diet after the other. You are only going to harm your health in doing so.
"Losing weight without going on a diet", as we understand it, means starting with the transformation of nutritional and every day life habits. If you are successful you will slowly but most certainly lose weight (exactly in the same way you put it on). If you do cannot cope with this change, then at least you have not harmed your health.
