Instead of the frown workout how about Oxycise, also known as The Long Breath Diet? I heard about this on the radio this morning and what have I got lose except a crap-load (metric measurement) of weight. You have to breathe in and breathe out for 2-5 minutes a day. OK, aggressively breathe in and out. No calories.

Former actor, Miki Ryosuke,  55, claims he lost 28 pounds in seven weeks by following his Long Breath Diet

There are two ways of practicing the diet.

The first involves tensing the buttocks while standing with one foot in front of the body and placing most of the body’s weight on the back foot.

In this position, the dieter is encouraged to inhale for three seconds while lifting their arms above their head.

They are then told to breathe out while tensing all of their muscles for seven seconds.

The second way of practicing the technique involves the dieter standing upright while tightening their buttocks and placing one hand on their stomach, and the other on the bottom of their back.

They are then told to inhale for three seconds before breathing out for seven seconds, all of the time holding in their stomach.

Jill Johnson, creator of the Oxycise, another weight loss programme based on breathing, told Oddity Central: ‘Fat is made up of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. When the oxygen we breathe reaches these fat molecules, it breaks them down into carbon dioxide and water. 

‘The blood then picks up the carbon dioxide – a waste product of our bodies – and returns it to the lungs to be exhaled. Therefore the more oxygen our bodies use, the more fat we will burn.’

The Long Breath Diet is believed to increase a dieter’s muscle strength and to boost their metabolism by increasing their blood oxygen levels. (Click on the article to read the original)

Wow! I’m going to try it with the modifications required for my hip replacements and hernia. Whaaa? There are no modifications needed? OK, I’ll let you know how it’s doing.

Thanks for listening. ;D Diane
