Did you know that you could burn fat by breathing?
No, really. I’ll begin by saying that I simply despise dieting in any form. I also refuse to take supplements or apply creams that claim to do anything with weight loss. I just don’t like taking chances that may harm my body or that of my nursing child in even the smallest way.
BreathSlim is different. There is NO dieting involved, NO supplements, NO strenuous exercise programs and NO side effects. It’s merely a breathing device that is 100% natural and 100% safe and even beneficial for nursing moms and pregnant women, as it increases oxygen uptake.
It’s more of an exercise, but not in the traditional sense of the word. You don’t even get up off the couch or lift a finger (or toe) to do it. All you do is sit up straight and breathe for 10-20 minutes!
I know what you’re thinking – now what kind if dream device can do that? Using only tap water and a small breathing apparatus, in a matter of weeks you can train your body to breathe correctly (deep, controlled and synchronized breathing through your diaphragm). It’s not a complex mechanism or fancy gadget. All you do is fill up the container with water, put the tube in your mouth, and do deep diaphragmatic breathing (versus shallow chest breathing) using your nose to inhale and your mouth to evenly expel the air.
What’s the benefit of breathing correctly anyway? It increases lung ventilation and blood exchange in your lungs, as well as blood and lymph circulation in the body, leading to:
- Improved metabolism
- Reduced appetite
- Shed excess weight
- Increased energy
- Better and deeper sleep
- Reduced snoring
- Better concentration
How is this deep breathing work effective for weight loss?
“Breathslim technology is based on direct action on fatty tissue using just the inner workings of your respiratory system. Breathslim technology allows you to use the energy released as a result of burning fatty tissue, increasing the activity of the whole body. Breathslim technology is based on changing of breathing pattern. As a result, the amount of oxygen getting from the inhaled air into blood vessels increases drastically. This leads to complete fat burning.”
Why do I need a device to breathe – can’t I just do without it? Breathing through a tube into the special water-filled container serves a dual purpose:
- It creates resistance when you exhale, making it much more effective and show results much faster.
- The water is a natural and automatic way of knowing if you are performing the technique correctly (if it splashes out, you are exhaling too forcefully).
Eventually you’ll be able to properly breathe without being dependent on the device. And once you’ve reached your desired weight, you can just use BreathSlim for maintenance once or twice a week.
What’s the catch? There is no catch. The tough part lies in the first few trials of breathing. Using your diaphragm to breathe, holding your breath for 5 whole seconds and exhaling evenly is harder than it sounds. Remember that you are changing your pattern of breathing, and undoing the many years of habitually poor breathing takes some effort and patience. (That’s probably why it is referred to as an exercise.) It’s a mastered technique that takes several tries so don’t get easily discouraged.
My experience: After my first attempt of doing it all wrong, I wanted to throw in the towel and even avoided the contraption over the next couple of days. But even just at my next go, I saw a vast improvement, just enough to keep me motivated. I did have to do a slight modification on the posture at first. Due to a few ongoing back issues and a lack of muscles, I had to lean slightly back (instead of sitting upright) while doing the exercises. While I still held the water beaker level and concentrated on correct exhalation, my breathing was not at full capacity, so it took longer for me to experience the full benefits of BreathSlim.
I also had trouble keeping from going back to chest breathing in the middle of the exercises. One thing that worked for me was visually watching and feeling my stomach moving up and down by keeping either my hand on top of or a (tight-ish) belt around my stomach to remind me to breathe from my diaphragm.
Although BreathSlim claims you can perform the exercise while doing something as mindless as watching TV or surfing Pinterest, it was so hard for me to concentrate on the breathing and the correct timing simultaneously that I did nothing else but that.
There are a few limitations with their online weight loss tracker, so I suggest keeping your own journal. But their online timer is more beneficial than a regular stopwatch or timer. It gave me visual cues to remind me to hold my breath for 5 seconds between inhaling and exhaling (which I too often forgot).
Did it work? It’s been several weeks since I first tried BreathSlim, and I haven’t had any magically significant weight loss results quite yet. However, like other reliable and sustainable weight loss methods, it doesn’t happen overnight. In other words, it’s gradual and not a “get skinny quick” gimmick. (The results of those types of weight loss systems don’t often last anyway.) It takes about 2-3 weeks of continual training to experience the first true results, benefits and changes in your body and lifestyle.
What I can say is that I did see positive changes seemingly right away – I had increased energy (which gave me the motivation to actually exercise!) and my light, ineffective sleeping patterns changed to a deeper, improved slumber. A win-win in my book!
