Our expert says:
Yes, it is possible to lose weight effectively with an energy-reduced diet, without doing additional exercise. However, you may find that it will take longer to lose weight using a diet on its own. Exercise has also been found to help slimmers stick to their diets more readily than those that do not exercise. I fully understand that you, as a single, working Mom, probably don't have a moment of the day which you can call your own to do exercise. I would like to suggest that you consider skipping as a form of exercise that you can do at any time and anywhere without having to visit a gym or make any elaborate plans. You may find that you can skip for 10 min in the morning and 10 min a night, or for longer over weekends. Start very gradually and for short periods (even 5 min 2 x a day) and as you start feeling the benefits and get fitter, you could skip for longer and faster to increase how much energy you burn. Just a suggestion.
