Anti obesity – breathe and get slim
The body uses energy in the form of glucose and fatty acids. To convert 1 gram of carbohydrates the body is provided an additional energy of 4.6 kcal. 1 gram of fatty acids provides 9.1 kcal. The heart takes 70 percent of its energy from fat. If the rest of the body could use fat more effectively, we would be very energetic. The problem is that the cell membranes have less sensitivity to fatty acids than to glucose. In addition, fats are quite large and do not fit in the cells. The fat storage is also more or less available in different people, which explains why some people seem to be able to eat just about anything without gaining weight, while others are easily putting on weight.
When we eat carbohydrates, glycogen is stored in the liver to be used when necessary. When the glycogen storage is empty in a human body in balance, the body has the ability to use fatty acids instead and the person remains slim. The opposite happens in obese bodies. Their cells’ sensitivity to fatty acids is decreased. When they run out of glycogen they feel instead, simply put, that they need to eat even more.
They don’t stand a chance using up all their fat. Here is where the breathing comes in again. By working with hypoxia and hypercapnia we increase the level of adrenalin, which increases the sensitivity of the cells, and then they are able to use the fatty acids as energy. The adrenalin also helps the so-called lipolysis decompose fats into smaller molecules, which are easier for the body to use. It is said that practice makes a smooth fat burning throughout the body, and that it’s not possible to work specifically with certain body parts. But of course you can! By creating hypoxia, you can burn fat in any part of the body at any time, such as stomach, butt or thighs.
Exercises for obesity
Inhale and hold your breath. Strain the muscles in the stomach or any body part you want to work with. The tension requires extra energy, and the cells begin to use fat as energy right where you tense up. The fat contains oxygen, required by the body when exercises are combined with hypoxia. Remember to do the exercises before dinner, when there is not so much glucose in the blood. When all the overweight is collected on the stomach it is due to hormonal imbalance and is a sign of aging. Then the acetylcholine has been taken over the body, and you start storing fat. Most receptors for that particular “age-fat” are located on the stomach and in the face. It is easy to be tempted to start dieting or exercising muscles – but neither is a solution to a hormonal problem.
The hormones control our body, and therefore we should always start by balancing them. Not by eating them in the form of pills, but by influencing them through effective breathing. By working with the breathing and creating more catecholamines, you can easily restore the hormonal balance and reduce the production of fat.
