Note: Reshape Physical Therapy and Wellness evolved into Weight Loss for Health, and finally Zivli. How to Lose Weight After 50 was our first course that eventually grew into Zivli. Some old blog posts or resources mentioned in this episode may have been removed. 

Do you need to lose weight before or after a back surgery, total knee or hip replacement or other surgery and just don’t have the mobility to exercise? Are you in so much pain it’s hard to move, let alone think about volitionally moving more!? Do you just loathe exercise and admit you’re lazy?

Are you stuck in the mindset of “eat less, exercise more” to lose weight and are thinking,  “How can I lose weight without exercise?” This episode will give you 3 reasons why exercise has limited utility for losing weight.
