If you are trying to shed a few extra pounds, the likelihood is that you want to do it in a way that doesn’t leave you feeling lethargic. You’ll want to make sure that it’s sustainable, and that you don’t simply put the weight back on in a few short weeks. Healthy weight loss is key to maintaining your losses – and oxygenation might just be the boost that you need.
Why Does Weight Loss Leave You Feeling So Rough?
If you’ve tried dieting before, you will know that you can end up feeling far worse than you did to start with. Here’s why:
- Lack of sleep
If you’re getting up earlier to hit the gym, then you need to go to bed earlier too. Your body needs around eight hours of sleep a night, and cutting this short is going to make you feel exhausted.
Part of the issue with dieting is that you can become a slave to the scales. With this obsession with lower numbers comes a variety of unhealthy habits, including not drinking enough water. Yes, water might lead to a higher number on the scale, but it keeps your body healthy. There’s no benefit to restricting your water intake for dieting purposes.
- Poor nutrition
There’s a reason that calorie restrictive diets can leave you feeling down – your body isn’t getting everything that it needs. If you have chosen a diet that is extremely restrictive, it is very unlikely that you will be getting your recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals.
When we feel tired all of the time, it is extremely difficult to get out and do those other things that we know are important for weight loss – such as exercising. And when you’re not making the improvements that you hoped you would, that can easily lead to the weight piling back on.
What Does Healthy Weight Loss Involve?
The idea that you can only lose weight by restrictive diets needs to be banished. Your body needs certain things, and cutting them out is never going to help. Instead, changing your mindset and lifestyle to one which is healthy and nourishing will not only keep you fit, but it will also last for life – not just a few months.
Healthy weight loss might take more time, but it will last far longer – and you will feel good too.
Shifting a mindset is never going to be easy, and this is even more true when you don’t have all of the tools to make sure you’re doing the right thing for your body.
Where Does Oxygenation Come Into This?
We know how vital oxygen is – it is what keeps us alive, and we can only survive for around three minutes without it. But you might not remember the purpose of oxygen from your high school science lessons.
Oxygen is needed to burn the fuel – the sugars and fatty acids from the food we eat – in our cells to produce energy. Because it is directly involved in the burning of fuel, it also has a role in weight loss.
You may think that through breathing, we can get all of the oxygen we need to function properly. However, as we age, changes in the body mean that we can no longer get enough oxygen to the cells that need it. A decline in lung capacity, a weakening diaphragm and repeated infections of the flu or pneumonia can limit the amount of air that we breathe. This, in turn, reduces the amount of oxygen that we can deliver to our cells.
Without oxygen, those cells become damaged – they don’t have the energy that they need to repair and replace. Some studies have shown that this is what leads to a range of issues, from wrinkles to declining muscle mass.
Because your body can’t burn fuel as efficiently, you’ll also end up putting weight on when consuming the same amount of calories as before – and you’ll find the weight more difficult to shift, too.
How Can Oxygenation Aid Healthy Weight Loss?
Oxygenation is the process of increasing oxygen to specific areas of the body. This can not only help with weight loss, but also other areas of concern – such as any pain or stiffness you may have. This can help with weight loss two fold – not only are you burning more calories, but if you have an injury which is stopping you from exercising as much as you would like to (such as a bad knee), oxygenation can boost the healing process and get you back to fitness.
Of course, oxygenation alone is not going to lead to you to lose weight. Other practices, such as a healthy diet and exercise are vitally important too. But it could help you to become fitter, healthier and provide that extra boost to lose some pounds, in a healthy and safe way.
