Fat Burning Fact #4

Let me tell you one of the easiest – yet most important things – you can do to burn fat.  If you’re like me you rush about a lot – babies, husbands, blogging, parents – you name it.

But there’s something that we all do anyway but we need to concentrate about – Breathing!

And it can really help you lose weight – I guarantee.

Just think about it – when you take a long, deep, slow breath and slowly release that air you also do something really important – you oxygenate yourself; your tissue, your brain.

And you reduce stress.

But you do something else too which is really important to lose weight.  It actually works when you walk or take deep breaths to control any food craving.

And that was one of the single most dangerous things that I experienced to gain weight in the first place.

I LOVE FOOD.

And I ate too much.

But breathing properly and also doing a couple of great yoga poses helped put off my craving and helped me burn fat – as well as increasing my overall health.

Next time you’re find yourself in front of the fridge, stop and take a few minutes to slow down both your body and your mind. Sometimes burning off a little excess energy is all it takes to quiet your thoughts. Simple standing forward bends can help calm your busy brain and reduce stress.

1. Stand with your back about a foot from a wall and your feet hip-width apart.

2. Lean back onto the wall. Then gently bend your knees and fold forward, bringing your belly and chest to your thighs. Take 6 to 12 breaths, focusing on the exhalation.

3. Slowly roll up one vertebra at a time, until your back is leaning up against the wall again. Close your eyes, and take a few breaths. Repeat 3 to 5 times.
