Some people don't like running as a form of exercise to lose weight. But we have to admit that exercise is very important in losing weight.Inorder to lose weight while having some exercises like running, instructors suggest some healthy apparatus/equipments for us. We have to maximize those stuffs. This workout will make you sweat without even stepping foot on a treadmill.

What's important to keep in mind is that the diet's contribution to bodyweight is dependent on caloric balance and the diet's contribution to body composition is dependent on micro/macronutrient sufficiency. Specific food selections are not relevant to bodyweight and body composition outside the context of daily nutrition.
Compose a diet that has the right number of calories to meet your goals (+10 to 20% of maintenance to bulk, -10 to 20% of maintenance to cut, or maintenance to, well, maintain), with said calories derived from at least a sufficient amount of protein (1.0 to 1.5 grams per pound of lean body mass*) and fat (0.45 to 1.0 grams per pound of bodyweight**). Compose the remainder of your calories from your preferred mix of carbs and additional protein and fat.
Select whole foods as much as possible and use supplements only if your diet is deficient and you can't cure said deficiency by altering your intake of whole foods.
Additionally, meal timing and frequency are largely irrelevant, but daily nutrition is highly relevant.

So thanks for all the info. I am actually having the surgery soon. They said recover time is 3 weeks. So if anyone can help me make a menu or recipes for 3 weeks that will be awesome. I do my own cooking and diet planning most the time. But i need help on this one because my gf is going to have to cook and take care of me for 3 weeks. I just need some simple recipes for my meals and I will be stuck in bed for a couple of days so i wont be burning to many calories

I sleep less and avoid working out when I'm stressed. Working out is a whole new hassle-- exercise clothes, carving time out of a packed schedule, finding my headphones, etc.-- on top of whatever else is going on. Lack of sleep makes me tired, makes me rely on sugary coffee drinks, and makes my metabolism just that much slower. This combination leads to some weight gain even if I'm not stress-eating/making poor food choices.
I've done a variety of online programs where you track your food intake and exercise output and this combination has made me more aware of my choices.
Ways I try to keep my stress low: proper sleep hygiene, meaning no caffeine after 5 or so at night, no tossing and turning for more than half an hour, no alcohol just before bed; making myself at least walk on the treadmill if I'm not going to run; making sure I have time for the things I want to do in any given week if not day.http://yourdreamsbody.com/
