How Japanese long breathing exercise help in losing weight?


What is japanese long breath diet? 

When we think of going on a diet, we usually assume that we have to cut down on fat enriched foods. But have you ever heard of the Japanese long-breath diet? This is actually a form of breathing technique that has got nothing to do with what you eat.

How it got discovered? 

This technique was developed accidentally by Japanese actor Mike Ryosuke. As per Ryosuke, this particular breathing technique helped him shed 13 kilos and cut down 4.7 inches from the waist within a few weeks.

Surprisingly, the actor was practising the breathing technique just to get relief from the back pain, but ended up shedding kilos. The most important thing of all is that you just have to perform it for 2 to 10 minutes daily.

How to do this? 

Known as Long-breath diet by Ryosuke, this Japanese technique for losing belly fat quickly involves standing in a certain position, taking 3-second breath and exhaling strongly for 7 seconds. It has been previously found that breathing exercises can help you with weight loss.

Just follow simple steps- 

Step 1: Stand straight on the staggered position (One leg in the front and the other at the back).

Step 2: Squeeze the glutes and shift your entire body weight to the back foot.

Step 3: Lift your arms overhead in a manner that the tips of the fingers are facing the ceiling. Now inhale slowly for 3 seconds.

Step 4: After this exhale forcefully for 7 seconds, stretching all your body muscles. Repeat this same for 2 to 10 minutes depending on your capacity.

This Japanese long breathing technique not only helps your shed kilos but also helps to strengthen the muscles of your body and improve metabolism.

What's the logic behind? 

As per experts when we take a long breath, the oxygen reaches our fat cell. Fat is made up of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. Oxygen breaks the fat into different components like carbon and water. Eventually, we burn more fat when our body uses more oxygen.
