Daily Appointment: “Exercise helps you lose and manage 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 better elimination and circulation that helps cleanse the body!” -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 your body correctly and consistently and practicing deep breathing. These keys are added, of course, to a good diet and a healthy diet. Let me emphasize that the starting point for improving your health and losing unhealthy weight is to start eating healthy, live organic whole foods and stop eating denatured, packaged, unhealthy, processed, dead man-made “foods.” that are loaded with toxins, unhealthy fats, sugars, salt, and excit0-toxins. In other words, first focus on creating a healthy, nutritious diet that will sustain his body and give him the nutrition he needs to function properly, then add healthy daily exercise and deep breathing.
A few years ago, when I was 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 stopped after losing about 15 pounds. I couldn’t figure out why until I realized I wasn’t exercising.
As soon as I started exercising daily, something changed in my body and I started losing more weight. I think now that “something” was my metabolism changing from a slow metabolism to a higher metabolism. In other words, because I had added regular exercise to my body and routine, my metabolism revved up and adjusted to burn fat more efficiently and stop storing fat like before. This change had a huge impact on my weight loss and personal fitness. Not only did I lose another 10-12 pounds, but I got in better physical shape.
Regular exercise can benefit your body in many ways. First, exercise helps break down stress and tension and helps release it from the body. Stress is negative energy that wears down your body, but exercise allows it to leave the body. Second, exercise increases oxygen to cells, which is necessary for life and vitality. Third, exercise stimulates every cell in the body to help eliminate toxic waste. Every cell makes its own toxic waste, and every cell needs stimulation to get rid of that 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 start the lymph fluid moving. Fifth, exercise opens channels in the body to help electromagnetic energy flow freely and unhindered. This energy gives life to the cells of the body, but it must not be blocked or congested in order for it to flow freely throughout 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 get over the hump and lose even more weight, as well as become more physically fit. I encourage you to follow my example and start implementing a daily exercise route that includes these 5 steps. One of the keys to my exercise routine was to consistently include aerobic and anaerobic exercise every day.
One of the main reasons I had gained weight was that my metabolism had slowed down. When I was younger, I could eat just about anything without gaining weight because I had a fast metabolism. However, once I hit my forties, my metabolism really slowed down and I started putting on quite a bit of weight because I wasn’t eating the right foods and not 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 well it 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 begins 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, in other words through an unhealthy diet. These toxins include artificial food additives, chemical residues used in growing food that are transferred to your body, artificial sweeteners like aspartame and excitotoxins like monosodium glutamate, prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as toxins in your water supply. like fluoride. and chlorine. These are toxins that cause your metabolism to slow down, which in turn causes your body to store energy from food as fat.
The second main cause of a slow metabolism is a low amount of muscle in your body and a lack of regular walking exercise. The more muscle your body has, the higher your metabolism will be. Unfortunately, most Americans have an abnormally low amount of muscle in their bodies, which means they don’t burn calories as efficiently as they could. Also, lack of walking exercise significantly lowers 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 down.
KEY I – Take a quick “POWER 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 stay slim because it gives your body the type of exercise it needs and because it will help reset your metabolism by speeding it up to burn fat more efficiently and stop storing energy fuel as fat. . The common denominator of skinny, skinny people around the world is that they walk more than 5 miles a day, while the typical American walks just a tenth of a mile a day. Remember, don’t just take a slow, casual “walk” in the park. A brisk walk means you have to walk quickly with effort so your heart and lungs have to work harder. If you wish, you can combine the walk with some jogging. I would recommend that you use your 30-60 minute walk to pray, meditate, or listen to inspirational music on your iPod. After you get into the habit of taking your daily walk, your body will want this activity and look forward to it every day. It will not be a drudgery, but a joy and a pleasure. Oh, I almost forgot. Don’t do your power walk on busy streets that are filled with toxic poisonous gases from cars, buses and trucks. Find a calm and quiet place like a local park where you can breathe fresh, clean air.
KEY II – Practice DEEP BREATHING EXERCISES
to increase oxygen in the lungs and body. Most people don’t breathe deeply enough to stimulate their metabolism and fat-burning ability. You can do this throughout the day, but be sure to do it especially while you’re taking your power walk. Learn to start breathing very deeply, from your belly, up through your lungs, filling your lungs with more and more oxygen. I usually breathe very shallowly; 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 your muscle strength. Get a set of 3 or 5 pound dumbbells to start with. After several months, you may 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 reps you do, and then try to increase that every day. When I first started doing this, I actually combined my little weightlifting routine with a little stepper to work my lower body as well. You can find a small stepping machine at your local sporting goods store. It’s a little 1 foot by 1 foot machine that you stand on and go up and down. It has little hydraulic pumps that create resistance so you feel like you’re climbing stairs. I recommend that you do this in conjunction with your weightlifting routine so that you are working 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’re 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’ll be amazed at the difference 20 minutes a day of light weight lifting will make for your body.
KEY IV – Use a “REBOUNDER” for 5-10 minutes a day.
A trampoline is a mini-trampoline about 4 feet in diameter, on which you gently bounce up and down. Doing this allows you to simultaneously stimulate and strengthen every cell in your body, stimulate your lymphatic system, and increase your metabolism. It is also very effective for weight loss.
KEY V – DAILY SEXUAL EXERCISE.
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 health. If you don’t believe me, try it. It’s fun, it’s free, and it feels amazing!
