Do I Have to Do Cardio to Lose Weight? Not Really, Say Most Experts

Doing cardio has always been recommended if you're trying to lose weight. Too bad you despise running, biking, and anything exercise-related! Is it possible to reach your weight-loss goals without doing cardio?

You're going to love this answer - yes! Weight loss really comes down to creating a calorie deficit. You can absolutely do that with diet alone. It helps to figure out your total daily energy expenditure (TDEE). This is the total number of calories you burn each day. It includes your basal metabolic rate (BMR) which is the number of calories your body needs to do its basic functions like breathing and digesting food, which varies based on your activity level.

Once you figure out that number, which many apps like My Fitness Pal can calculate for you automatically, you need to decrease the number of calories you consume each day by 15 to 20 percent. Just make sure that you never dip below your BMR. Keep in mind that this is just an estimate, so listen to your body and eat more if you need to!
