You've heard of the Atkins, the Mediterranean and the Cabbage diet. How about a no diet "diet" and no gym too?

One health expert guarantees you will still lose weight and look fabulous.

"This is how I take my conference calls," said Dian Griesel, a health expert and author.

Try to keep up with Griesel as she bounces new ideas around about dieting, like don't lose weight.

"Weight is muscle. It's brains. It's hearts, your bones. It's all the essential organs of your body," Griesel explained. "These all add up to your weight, but fat is a whole other story [and] we could get rid of some of it."
Griesel is author of the book "TurboCharged" and she holds a PhD in nutrition. She insists on healthy eating and strongly suggests we drink much more water, especially before your morning coffee.

This is where things get interesting. Griesel said you also don't have to go to the gym. Instead, stand up every two hours and work your muscles for one minute.

"I do it all day long at work. I just slip off my shoes," Griesel said. "I've done it in skirts. I've done it in dresses, even in tight pants."

Some of the exercises she suggests doing for a minute every two hours are planks, push-ups, squats and jumping jacks.
