All the Ways to Lose Weight Without Going to the Gym

October 6, 2022

Everything in Nigeria is expensive, and gyms are not left out. So if you’re trying to lose weight or stay fit, you should try these FREE but very effective methods. 

Portion control

You may have already tried this, so maybe the problem is not the food you eat. How about you try limiting the access people have to you? Because it’s only see-finish that’ll make people comment on your weight in the first place.

Live in Nigeria

Working out is hard, country hard too. So instead of going to the gym, you can stay up to date with all the Nigerian economy news while dating someone in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt or Benin. Don’t ask us any questions; just try it and you’ll see results. 

Stop avoiding breakfast

When you know that breakfast is an essential part of every life. Why are you now running from breakfast then? Let that Yoruba man break your heart. You’ll definitely lose weight. 

Drink water 

Food is already expensive. So focus on drinking plenty water and minding your business. 

Be a side piece

Nothing makes your heart beat faster than doing something you know you’re not supposed to do. So imagine what all that sneaking around will do for your heart? What other cardio do you need? 

Start a fight online

You already spend most of your time online away. So just have a controversial take on any of the never-ending Twitter arguments, and watch them drag you from all corners. It’s like yoga, but with more vawulence. 

Work in a Nigerian start-up

If you thought living in Nigeria was hard, try working in a Nigerian startup. Imagine giving your soul and blood for the job, collecting ₦70k salary and still having to be physically present at their island office when you live on the mainland. Ah, you must lose weight.
