Just curious.
Imo no because being in shape is more than just what you weigh.
Doesnt improve cardio except carrying less weight.
Doesnt improve muscle,

you can lose weight from it, but you won't gain muscle or be more fit or anything.

Well you can but it will take ages - you can catalyse weight/fat loss via exercise and certain supplements. I used to take supplements but didn't see no huge changes and there were major health side effects so I didn't wanna risk it in the long run. So far I'm just dieting and cycling everyday - varying from 1 to 3 hours. Done this properly for the last 4 weeks and I've seen progress via scales and physically looking at myself in the mirror + the chinos and jeans I used to not fit in finally fit and right now they're loose af so I've come pretty far being consistent and being true to myself and not snacking. Hope this helps

Depend on what shape you want? Stick thin? Hour-glass?

You can lose WEIGHT/FAT. Just be prepared to say bye-bye to them muscles.

It doesn't - this is fat loss - when did I say it makes you stronger and fitter? You just lose fat/weight.

Then that is different to what people would normally assume by being in shape.
Weight loss is obtained through calorie deficit of which adjusting consumption is 80% of the battle. get some scales and start calorie counting.

Yes it is perfectly possible, just by eating at a deficit.to go to your target weight, just slower.

Exercise helps with physical health and can make weight losing easier, but it isnt required.

Just because people are thin doesnt mean they will be fit.

You can lose weight and your body will get smaller for sure, but it won't be as "in shape" as it would be if you exercised, too.

Starving yourself will slow down your metabolism, so you end up burning fat less slowly. Eventually you're going to end up ill.

Why would you bring it up then? Unless you see dieting as starving. But that wasn't what I asked and I already have 4 helpful responses.

Depends - what would your daily calorie intake be?

Again. Not really the direction I was hoping to steer this conversation in. And you haven't answered my question but don't worry. I don't need you to. I only wanted to know was if it was possible to lose weight by dieting alone and all 4 posters before you said yes. I'm satisfied. Thanks if you were trying to help.
