HOW CAN BREATHING HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT?
You have three main body fuels – food, water, and oxygen. Most people are aware of the fact that when you limit your food intake, your metabolism slows down, however, little attention is given to our poor breathing habits. You can last several weeks without food, several days without water, but only a few minutes without oxygen. Doesn't it make sense to you that oxygen will have a much quicker and more dramatic effect on your metabolism than any other fuel? Reducing your oxygen intake slows your metabolism and deprives each of your 75 trillion cells from receiving their most basic nutrient, and makes it impossible for your body to properly metabolize fat.
The reverse is also true – increasing your oxygen intake revs up your metabolism and allows your body to thrive. Breathing well is the key to a slender, healthy body.
Oxycise! delivers lots of extra oxygen and works your muscles at the same time. The result is more effective fat burning.
HOW HAS THE OXYGEN CONNECTION BEEN PROVEN?
In university tests, namely the University of Southern California and the University of Colorado, Oxycise! was found to burn more calories than riding a stationary bicycle.
In order to function at full capacity, your blood cells, brain cells, muscle cells and vital organ cells . . . every single one of them . . . must have oxygen. Oxygen – it helps your cells metabolize nutrients for energy, maintenance, repair, and healing. The way you breathe has a profound effect on your heart, arteries, and blood flow. Breathing affects the diameter of your blood vessels, your blood pressure, and the work output of the heart. The activity of your brain is directly affected by the way you breathe.
Breathing is also your chief body cleanser. Elimination of wastes, debris, toxins, and body pollution is a major function of oxygen. Do you realize that much of your body's waste is eliminated through exhaling?
I'd like to share a secret with you . . . This secret is well-guarded by the $35 Billion dollar a year weight loss industry, and there are a lot of wealthy cosmetic surgeons and manufacturers of exercise gadgets and diet pills who don't want this secret to get out:
Fat leaves your body through carbon dioxide.
Fat does not dissolve with “magic” pills or drinks and come out in your urine. It does not melt away into sweat under neoprene shorts or waist belts. It does not disappear by smearing creams on your thighs or lounging in vibrator belts. And it does not disappear through wishful thinking.
Fat leaves your body through carbon dioxide! This is not just a premise. This is a physiological FACT.
When you breathe and take in oxygen, your fat molecules are combined with oxygen atoms, causing oxidation. The main product is carbon dioxide. In fact, carbon dioxide is the most abundant of all the end-products of metabolism. It is more abundant than waste eliminated through urine, bowels, and perspiration!
If you limit your breathing, your body will not be able to eliminate properly, so it will store the toxins and fat and you have to live with them all the time. How does that extra poundage feel? Not fully using the oxygen available to us has created the largest toxic "waist" dump in our country.
EVERYBODY BREATHES, SO WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE OVERWEIGHT?
Low oxygen occurs for several reasons. Here are 2 primary reasons:
1. Shallow chest breathing. Most of you only use a fraction of your lungs. Why? You wear tight pants, girdles, tight belts, hold your stomach in to look thin. More than likely you spend most of the day sitting down – working at a computer or desk all day, commuting in your car, going out to dinner, watching TV or movies. Our push-button society has all but eliminated the need for our bodies to move, and the result is a very low natural demand for oxygen.
2. Stress. Just because you sit down all day, doesn't mean you don't experience high stress and anxiety. You may not know this, but as you get excited, anxious, or stressed, your triglyceride levels go up in your blood causing clumping and sludging of your red blood cells. This clogs your capillaries and keeps oxygen from being delivered properly.
Could it be, that if you struggle with being overweight, or have some stubborn fat deposits that you can't seem to get rid of, that you don't have an eating problem, you don't have a motivation problem — you have a breathing problem!
One of my favorite letters is from Erin Gadd, a college student, "I was depressed and desperate about my weight and had given up on any social life at college. I sought out your program and did everything you said. Within three months I lost a total of 40 pounds and 6 inches from my waist! I've maintained that for nearly a year without a lot of effort and can fit in pants I wore in 10th grade. In fact, a pair of shorts that I couldn’t even pull up over my hips are now baggy! It is so fun to be able to hike and run and do other activities now. But the most exciting of all is I’m getting married next week! If I hadn’t made these body changes, I would have never had the confidence to meet my new husband!"
SO ARE YOU SAYING THAT ALL I HAVE TO DO IS BREATHE MORE AND I'LL LOSE WEIGHT?
I don't have a magic pill that you can take so that you never have to think about your body again. What I am saying is that your body follows natural laws, and to keep it healthy you will always have to invest some time and some effort. What I've done with Oxycise! is pack as much as possible into a short daily time investment – only 15 minutes a day – to help you harness your body's natural ability to burn fat and increase your energy and vitality.
I teach people step-by-step how to significantly increase their oxygen consumption and combine that with flexing and contracting all major muscle groups. By doing this you will be able to measure a weight loss and inch loss very quickly. Not only that but you reduce your body fat percentage.
It's not motion or pounding or sweating that causes fat to metabolize – It's oxygen!

Bob Doyle, age 75, shared:
"I really didn't think it would work, I thought I was too old. Age was my problem. I was tired and run down and felt just plain lousy. I was about 50 pounds overweight and was wearing a tight 44 pants. …I saw an add for the Oxycise! program and decided it was time to stop and try and do something. I thought I was too old to do the weight thing.
"Much to my surprise I started and I felt a lot better after the first week. My breathing was good and my energy level was on the rise. In fact I fired the lawn man and am now doing all of the yard work and singing again in Church, and the breath is good. I have so many rewards for doing your program I can't believe them all. I have lost 50+ pounds and have lost 6 sizes and have the energy of being about 20 years younger. Thanks again for the program and believe me, if I feel this good at 75 then anyone can do it and succeed."
