It may sound like a bit of a stretch, that deep breathing could cause weight loss; but this can actually be the case.
While deep breathing is not going to have the same impact on you as said, 50 laps in the pool can contribute to general good health in way that can help with and encourage weight loss.
Did you know, a lot of us actually don’t breathe the correct way? You have been doing it all your life, but you may not be doing it right.
You may have been breathing shallow your entire life and this may be due to the body’s metabolism, the posture (during walking, sitting and standing) and levels of health.
By becoming more conscious about the way that we breathe, and making the effort to breathe deeply and optimally, we become aware and more conscious about our bodies and their working.
Deep breathing also ups the metabolic rate of the body, helping the body burn of more calories and assisting in weight loss. Since you also end up having more energy, you are better able to work out and work towards weight loss. What deep breathing also does is, it causes oxygen to reach your organs better, making them work more efficiently.
