When you lose weight, where does the fat go? Does deep breathing help you lose weight?
A new study shows, many health professionals cannot correctly answer
the question of where body fat goes when people lose weight.
The most common misconception among doctors, dieticians and personal trainers
is that the missing mass has been converted into energy or heat. The correct
answer is that most of the mass is breathed out as carbon dioxide and goes into
Losing 10 kilograms of fat requires
29 kilograms of oxygen to be inhaled and that this metabolic process produces
28 kilograms of carbon dioxide and 11 kilograms of water.
One of the most frequently asked
questions is -whether simply breathing more can cause weight loss. Researchers
say -The answer is no. Breathing more than required by a person's metabolic
rate leads to hyperventilation, which can result in dizziness, palpitations and
loss of consciousness.
But I disagree. If you were to
breathe fast , yes it will lead to hyperventilation. But what if you were to
breathe deeply & slowly , like what they taught in meditation ? I seriously
think it will help in weight loss, but again like all things, it’s not easy to
do. I’ve tried , after a few minutes of intensive deep breathing, I got bored or something. But if you can
sustain deep breathing for a long period of time, it’s very beneficial &
you’ll lose weight !
