What?! Why is your weight loss secret something our bodies do naturally already?
Exactly! I’m talking about something our bodies do without even thinking about it, so that you can think about it
What People Don't Realize
A lot of people don’t know that oxygen is actually a key nutrient to speeding up your metabolism. Yet, oxygen is almost completely ignored in most nutrition books.
What’s important about oxygen when it comes to weight loss? Most experts focus on carbs, proteins and fats but ignore the one key nutrient – oxygen – that helps to burn all of these nutrients in the body better.
The bottom line on oxygen is that when you breathe, you burn more energy.
Think of the analogy of building a fire.
When you build a fire you need two things: wood for fuel and good air circulation.
The same is true in your gut. Your need food for fuel and oxygen to stoke your metabolic fire.
This is one of the reasons why physical exercise is so powerful – it increases the body’s oxygen intake and teaches the body to use that oxygen to burn fat even more efficiently
