Can breathing help you lose weight?
We all know that obesity is on the increase, we see it every day on TV and in magazines.
The problem seems to be spiraling out of control. Common sense tells us that weight gain is just down to the plain, simple fact of eating too many calories. And, making the wrong food choices can be caused by low self-esteem or from being in situations where you are under constant stress.
It’s been found the wrong food is both a comforter and quick energy pick me up.
So, what can we use to turn your weight gain around?
What if I told you that you could make a big difference to your health. Just from the proper breathing technique increased energy, and stress relief, result.
We all know the benefits of the proper breathing technique. If you’re breathing improperly, your body isn’t gaining the full benefit from the lungs. Your body suffers in the same proportion.
This problem gets worse when you consider that most people also don’t exhale properly. A lot of waste products and excess gases then accumulate in the body.
This sluggish feeling can start a vicious cycle. The victim goes from having no energy to snacking on sugar-filled pick-me-ups. These contain extra calories, which add to the weight gain. Eventually, this increases the feeling of a lack of energy. And the cycle goes on and on!
By using the proper breathing technique you can increase your intake of oxygen to the body.
Proper oxygen intake is very important. We can live for a couple of days without food and water but we can only live minutes without oxygen. We can see how much our bodies rely on oxygen. All organs require oxygen for proper function. Even the digestive process needs oxygen for processing food and burning up waste products.
If your body’s not getting its oxygen quota, you can’t expect it to perform to the best of its abilities. Proper breathing can help you lose weight.
Plus the benefits of breathing exercises are that you can do them anywhere. Even when you are sitting in traffic. You can still practice proper breathing exercises. You don’t have the added expense of exercise equipment or gym membership for proper breathing.
