Daily quote: “Exercise helps you lose and control your weight in two ways. First, by raising your metabolism, you burn more calories. Second, by building muscle, which requires more energy to maintain, you use even more calories. Exercise promotes a better elimination and better circulation that helps body cleanse! “- Paul Bragg
“Breathing deeply, fully and completely energizes the body, calms the nerves, fills you with peace and helps you stay young.” – Paul Bragg
A very important part of a healthy lifestyle is exercising the body correctly and consistently and practicing deep breathing. These keys add, of course, to good nutrition and healthy eating. Let me emphasize that the starting point for improving your health and losing unhealthy weight is to start eating healthy living organic whole foods and stop eating unhealthy, denatured, packaged, unhealthy processed, artificial “foods” that are loaded with toxins. , unhealthy fats, sugars, salt and excitable toxins. In other words, first focus on creating a healthy and nutritious diet that supports your body and provides it with the nutrition it needs to function properly, and then add healthy daily exercise and deep breathing.
A few years ago, when trying to improve my health and lose weight, I first completely transformed my diet and eating habits. I quickly began to lose weight and enjoy better health. However, my weight loss slowly came to a halt after losing about 15 pounds. I couldn’t understand why until I realized I wasn’t exercising.
As soon as I started exercising on a daily basis, something changed in my body and I started to keep losing more weight. I think now that “something” was my metabolism changing from a slower metabolism to a higher metabolism. In other words, because I had added regular exercise to my body and routine, my metabolism was revved up and adjusted to burn fat more efficiently and stop storing fat like it used to. This change had a huge impact on my weight loss and personal fitness. Not only did I lose another 10-12 pounds, but I became more physically fit.
Regular exercise can benefit your body in many ways. First, exercise helps remove stress and tension and helps release them from the body. Stress is negative energy that wears out your body, but exercise allows you to leave the body. Second, exercise increases oxygen to cells, which is necessary for life and vitality. Third, exercise stimulates all the cells in the body to help eliminate toxic waste. Each cell produces its own toxic waste, and each cell needs stimulation to remove toxic waste and stay healthy. Fourth, exercise increases the movement of lymphatic fluid in the body, which is an important factor in the process of eliminating toxins. Most people’s lymphatic systems are dangerously slow and clogged, and moving the body through exercise helps to start moving the lymphatic fluid. Fifth, exercise opens the channels of the body to help electromagnetic energy flow freely and unhindered. This energy gives life to the cells of the body, but must not be blocked or congested in order for it to flow freely through the body and do its job of energizing the cells of the body.
5-STEP WORKOUT ROUTINE FOR FITNESS AND WEIGHT LOSS
I would like to share with you the 5-step exercise routine that I used to help me overcome the problem and lose even more weight, as well as get in better physical shape. I encourage you to follow my lead and start implementing a daily exercise routine that includes these 5 steps. One of the keys to my exercise routine was to consistently include aerobic and anaerobic exercise on a daily basis.
One of the main reasons I gained weight was that my metabolism had slowed down. When I was younger, I could eat almost anything without gaining weight because I had a fast metabolism. However, once I hit my forties, my metabolism really slowed down and I started to gain quite a bit of weight because I wasn’t eating the right kinds of foods and I wasn’t exercising. There are certain glands and organs in the body (such as the thyroid, pancreas, liver, stomach, small and large intestines, and colon) that regulate how well the body burns food for fuel and how it also converts food into stored fat. When some of these glands and organs are clogged or sluggish or not working properly, a person’s metabolism slows down and they begin to convert more and more food into fat instead of fuel.
What are the two main reasons for a slow metabolism? The first major cause of a slow metabolism is the amount of toxins you are putting into your body. Most of these toxins enter your body through what you eat and drink, that is, through an unhealthy diet. These toxins include artificial food additives, chemical residues used in growing food that are transferred to your body, artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, and excitotoxins such as monosodium glutamate, prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as toxins in the water supply. like fluorine. and chlorine. These are toxins that cause your metabolism to slow down, which in turn causes your body to store energy from food in the form of fat.
The second main cause of a slow metabolism is a low amount of muscle in your body and a lack of regular exercise for walking. The more muscle your body has, the higher your metabolism. Unfortunately, most Americans have an abnormally low amount of muscle in the body, which means that they don’t burn calories as efficiently as possible. Also, a lack of walking exercise significantly reduces a person’s metabolism. The human body is designed to walk, and when a person stops walking on a daily basis, their metabolism adjusts and begins to slow.
KEY I – Take a quick “ENERGY WALK”
every day in the sun for 30-60 minutes. Your body was designed to walk. Walking every day will help you lose weight and keep you lean by giving your body the kind of exercise it needs and by helping to reset your metabolism by speeding it up to burn fat more efficiently and stop storing energy for fuel. . The common denominator of thin and thin people around the world is that they walk more than 5 miles per day, while the typical American walks only one tenth of a mile per day. Remember, don’t just take a slow, casual “walk” through the park. A brisk walk means you have to walk briskly with effort so that your heart and lungs have to work harder. If you want, you can combine walking with jogging. I would recommend that you use your 30-60 minute walk to pray, meditate, or listen to inspiring music on your iPod. Once you get into the habit of taking your daily energy walk, your body will crave this activity and you will crave it every day. It will not be hard work, but a joy and pleasure. Oh, I almost forgot. Don’t vigorously walk on busy streets that are filled with poisonous toxic gases from cars, buses, and trucks. Find a quiet and peaceful place like a local park where you can breathe fresh, clean air.
KEY II – Practice DEEP BREATHING EXERCISES
to increase oxygen in your lungs and body. Most people do not breathe deeply enough to stimulate their metabolism and their ability to burn fat. You can do this throughout the day, but be sure to do it especially while you’re out on your power walk. Learn to start breathing deeply, from your belly, up through your lungs, filling your lungs with more and more oxygen. I’m usually a very shallow breather; however, by practicing deep breathing exercises, I have been able to increase the amount of oxygen in my lungs, which has had an effect on my entire body. I would recommend that you practice deep breathing throughout the day. Write the words “Take a deep breath” on a small index card and post it in front of your desk or computer and in your car as an hourly reminder.
KEY III – LIFTING SMALL WEIGHTS
every other day to increase muscle strength. Get a set of 3-pound or 5-pound weights to start with. After several months, you can gain 3 to 5 pounds, or 5 to 10 pounds. Develop some simple lifting routines to work the various muscles in your upper body. Keep track of how many repetitions you do and then try to increase it every day. When I started doing this, I combined my weight lifting routine with a little stepper so that it would also work my lower body. You can find a small stepping machine at your local sporting goods store. It’s a little 1 foot by 1 foot machine where you stand and go up and down. It has small hydraulic pumps that create resistance to give you the feeling that you are climbing stairs. I recommend that you do this in conjunction with your weight lifting routine so that you are exercising both your upper and lower body. Start lifting weights slowly every other day for about 10 minutes and then slowly increase that time until you are doing this for 20-30 minutes a day. Remember, only lift weights every other day, not every day because your muscles need time to rest and rebuild. You will be amazed at the difference that 20 minutes a day of lifting small weights will make for your body.
KEY IV – Use a “REBOUNDER” for 5-10 minutes a day.
A rebounder is a mini-trampoline about 4 feet in diameter, on which you gently bounce up and down. Doing this allows you to stimulate and strengthen all the cells in your body simultaneously, stimulate your lymphatic system, and increase your metabolism. It is also very effective for weight loss.
KEY V – SEXERCISE DAILY.
Enjoy the pleasure of vigorous sex with your spouse every day. Start incorporating sexual exercise into your daily exercise routine, but don’t make it a routine. Keep it creatively spiced with variety. Several studies have shown that vigorous daily sex burns fat and improves your health. If you don’t believe me, try it. It’s fun, it’s free, and it feels great!
