If you are trying to lose weight, deep breathing exercises may jus help you losing weight, & accelerate the process of using body fat)
We all know a story or two on how weight training, & exercises such as HIIT are the go-to for fat loss, but did you know that deep breathing exercises(aka breathwork), such as diaphragm breathing techniques, can help you lose weight, get rid of fats, provide you with so many health benefits(both mental & physical), & for both short & long term health goals. Yes, breathworks can aid in fat loss, but what do weight loss, & deep breathing have to do with the bright side of things? Renowned breathing expert/ author, Patrick Mckeown from Oxygen Advantage, mentioned that because of the ability to better control your breath, emotional eating, & balancing the PH levels in your body, fewer fluctuations are bound to happen with cravings for sugary beverages, & foods(sometimes caused by fluctuations fo PH, blood sugar crash, etc.
If you have never done breathwork or breathing exercises, tingling sensations around areas of your body can be felt, which may include:
Why do diaphragm breathing techniques exercises?
Our diaphragm(muscle) separates our upper body & lower body(includes stomach/ organ). Our lymphatic system is also helped by breathing using your diaphragm via the passageway near the top of the muscle, where it gets distributed to the rest of the upper body & the nodes. It also helps to increase your lung capacity, & shy away from health problems.
About nearly as high as 7 out of 10 people have breathing dysfunction which may/ have been linked to health conditions, & that a person who has been chest breathing all their life would have a lower amount of PH blood level(increased stress hormones), & which may lead to all kinds of related health conditions(one important by-products of hypo-oxygenated cells). All of which decreases the oxygen level due to breathing habits that we don't realise, can simply change with awareness.
Stomach or belly breathing can be used as a sign that your breath is full(optimal volume of O2), on the bright side of life, belly breathing is breathing life into your own body, despite what people's views are(abdominal muscles/belly in, chest up), is the natural breath pattern to succumb to, for a better wellbeing. Exercise seen on TV, advertising & social media rarely give any credits for how simple yet how much it affects our whole mind, & body just by doing simple breathing exercises, which could help accelerate weight loss for those who wants to lose weight, recovery for those who exercises more frequent than 5 times a week, balance your PH level, improve your organs' function, a calmer mind, higher volume of oxygen into the lungs, & so much more! Can breathing exercises really help with so many things? Why yes of course, our breath is such a powerful weapon, & in the hands of the right guidance, you can achieve many personal goals.
Can you lose weight from breathing?
It takes more for people to lose belly fat such as adopting an active lifestyle(exercise), & a balanced diet, however, deep breathing or conscious breathwork helps you improve your bodily functions, reason being, oxygen is fuel for our body & metabolism, which results in increased efficiency in any weight loss, exercise, or health programme. Albeit, breathing is not the sole answer to lose overall weight. Researchers have shown that joining a class such as yoga, breathwork, or any particular class that combines movement & breath manipulation is the best for weight loss.
How can I breathe to lose belly fat?
You can start by sitting down upright or lying down fully relaxed, here is the process you can start with:
Does breathing heavily burn calories?
While breathing itself uses calories to expand & contract naturally, the conscious effort of manipulation using different breathing techniques allows you to not only have a higher metabolism but also help improve fitness, recover, due to higher amounts of oxygen in your whole body. Breathing too heavy may however cause you to hyperventilate which is not a good way to help you lowers stress levels in your body.
Losing weight(burn fat) takes more than just breathing, however, it takes an active lifestyle & conscious effort of rest & regular active physical activity.
Does breathing through your nose burn more fat?
The majority of us take our breaths(inhale and exhale) through the mouth, which means you would naturally use a form of mouth breathing that would engage the muscles in your neck, & chest area, & results of people who breathe this way would usually have higher amounts of carbon dioxide that don't leave your lungs, & lesser amounts of oxygen as breathing gets more shallow & breath rate increases(may lead to chronic hyperventilation).
What are the overall benefits of breathwork?
Deep breathing exercise not only helps:
It also helps you stay more relaxed, clear your mind(state of thoughtlessness), which equals to lowered stress, increase inspiration, creativity, wonder, & keep you focused on any weight loss journey.
How often should I do breathworks for?
A beginner should always go for more frequent shorter sessions to get the conditioning part of most of the breathing techniques, & a class that puts you in different positions doing different types of pose such as a yoga class that is dedicated to breathing or breathwork with movements/ exercise, however, breathwork classes are not yoga classes as we know it.
