Fat Burning Yoga Workout is More Effective Than Cardio

Cardio is often not especially effective for fat loss. Many people believe in the myth that says if you’re sweating, you’re definitely burning fat. In fact, the opposite is true – if you’re cold, your body is forced to use energy to warm your body up. Sweating just means your body is making too much heat, compared to the outside temperature. This often has turns on protective processes in the body that shut down energy production to prevent overheating – hence why you feel sleepy and tired after baking on the beach or after a hot sauna.

If you’re serious about loosing weight, give this yoga workout a try. It’s extremely effective in putting your body in a fat-burning state, and doing the workout daily will lead to quite amazing results.

What is especially effective for weight loss is continuous tension in the large muscles – the legs and the back. You’ll often find diabetics using those sort of exercises to lower their blood sugar, and intense cardio often has the opposite effect on them – it raises their blood sugar an hour after the workout, due to stress hormones being released in the adrenals and the liver. You’ll also notice sprinters have a better physique than marathon runners, which again proves the point of this article.

  1. 1. Side Plank

2. Downward Facing Dog

3. Plank Flow

As you can see, those exercises put a lot of static tension on the muscles. Aim for 10 minutes of total tension, which is harder than it looks at first. There is no specific timing for each exercise – just hold the pose until you no longer can and you feel the burn. Rest for a minute, move on to the next exercise. Repeat. The squat hold is also very effective, but demanding – just holding it for 30 seconds can have a massive effect on how much carbohydrates you store on your thighs.

As you can see, the whole session is three exercises. You don’t need more. We’re not aiming for stretching here, only muscle tension. The three exercises put tension on the legs, the abdominal muscles and the upper body (shoulders).

Use This Drink To Remove Plaque from Your Arteries and Kill Inflammation in the Body

There are two ways to use cayenne pepper juice in this amazing recipe. You can use cayenne powder, or you can juice fresh cayenne, store the juice in the refrigerator and then use add a tablespoon to your drink. The latter is obviously more difficult, as you have to obtain fresh peppers and then make a mess with your juicer. However, it’s a one-time thing, once you have prepared a glassful of cayenne pepper juice, you have enough for a month.

The Prepared Juice with Very Little Cayenne – Ideally Add as Much as You Can

Here’s the Quick Recipe:

  • Half a cup of water
  • Quarter cup lemon juice
  • A teaspoon of turmeric
  • Enough Cayenne Pepper Juice or Powder to Make the Juice Very Hot, Yet Drinkable
  • A Dash of Black Pepper
  • A tablespoon of fat – coconut oil is best
  • A tablespoon of honey

Use this trick to restore your circulatory system and cholesterol levels to that of a 25 year-old

Add everything to a jar, close it and shake it to mix in the oil. Use hot water to make the coconut oil liquid, otherwise it will stay hard.

The Fat is used to slow down the absorption of the drink, reduce stomach burn if more cayenne is used and increase the absorption of curcumin from the turmeric several-fold.

How The Drink Works and Why it’s Much More Effective Than Plain Turmeric, or Garlic Drinks

A traditional remedy for clogged arteries is to drink very hot (temperature-wise), plain water on an empty stomach and walk fast. The increase body temperature dilates the arteries and plaque buildup is quickly reabsorbed. This drink accomplishes the same, but without the high-temperature and without the exercise necessary. Cayenne pepper dilates arteries and induces thermogenesis. The turmeric fights inflammation and enables the body to get rid of the plaque.

The drink isn’t only effective for removing plaque. In fact, it’s great for anyone who:

  • Suffers from any type of pain, particularly joint pain or fibromyalgia
  • Suffers from Hemorrhoids or Blood circulation disorders, like many types of angioma.
  • Has low-energy levels or depression
  • Suffers from poor circulation, has cold hands and feet or experiences cold sweats.
  • Suffers from high blood pressure

Because of the blood-vessel dilating properties of the drinks, it is much more effective than using just turmeric, or even the traditional german plaque-cleaning drink, made from garlic. As a side benefit, since the drink doesn’t need garlic, the side effect of garlic breath is not there. The slightly increased body temperature, which comes after drinking the drink does result in some increased fat burn, especially if you go on a run withing two hours of drinking it.

 

The ‘Bitter’ Juice Recipe That Flushes Toxins From The Liver

Today we are more than ever exposed to environmental and other toxins and at the same time we are consuming less and less antioxidants. Although our body makes it’s own antioxidants, it does rely heavily on dietary intake of vegetables in order to process the toxins in the liver and get rid of them. Lacking those antioxidants, the toxins get stuck in the liver and more and more fat is produced to store them, leading to ‘belly fat’. This type of fat cannot be efficiently burned off with exercise and when it is, the toxins are released, leading to fatigue, headaches and other unpleasant effects. Fortunately, there is a simple solution! Read on 🙂

How the Liver Eliminates Toxins

The liver doesn’t work exactly as most people would imagine it – it’s not supposed to absorb toxins from the bloodstream and then store them. Instead, it’s job is to transform the toxins into non-toxic compounds, which are then excreted. This happens in three stages.

In the first stage, the liver processes the toxins through a process of oxidation (in the case of alcohol), reduction (in the case of protein waste) or it jumps straight to hydrolyzation, which makes the toxins water soluble and they can be then carried through the bloodstream and excreted through the kidneys. For this to happen, dietary antioxidants are needed. In the past, this wasn’t an issue, as studies have found that paleolithic men were consuming as much as 300 grams of fiber a day, all of which came from plants. Today, less than 50% of Americans meet the daily recommended amount of fiber, which is only 15 grams. As a result, we have a belly fat epidemic.

How Bitter Vegetables Reverse Fatty Liver and Melt Belly Fat

Fatty liver is a common condition and although commonly associated with heavy drinking, more than 30% is not and is due to diet alone. Lacking vegetable oxidants, the liver cannot turn fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble ones, and they become ‘stuck’ in the liver. As a result, fat accumulates, which is the most common cause of visceral, or belly fat – sometimes all of the belly fat is part of the liver, pushing the belly out.

Liver problems occur in only about 1 in 5 heavy alcoholics and it has been proven that there must be another factor involved, most likely dietary. But you don’t need alcohol to accumulate large amounts of toxic fat in your liver, as we all know. Plenty of people who don’t drink have problems with belly fat, making the intake of ‘bitter’ vegetables the most important factor of all.

Bitter vegetables come to the rescue! When we say ‘bitter’, it’s not necessarily bitter, but vegetables that have slightly astringent and bitter taste, somewhat stinging when you eat them. Cabbage is a good example. If you have ever tried cabbage juice you know it stings, similar to eating garlic. This is what we mean by ‘bitter’. Plant antioxidants generally don’t taste that well, hence why many people don’t eat enough of them.

To make things simple and ingest the necessary antioxidants to flush the toxins from the liver and get rid of belly fat, it’s easiest to make a juice. This way, you don’t have to chew on pounds of vegetables, and it’s easier to make it a habit.

Simple Bitter Juice Recipe

  • 1 Cucumber
  • 3 Cups Kale
  • 1 Lime or Half a Lemon
  • 1 Cup Swiss Chard
  • Half an Apple

If you want to get the maximum effect (and bitterness :)), you can leave the lemon or lime unpeeled. If you drink the juice on an empty stomach you will feel the effects quickly – you might get a slight headache or you might get slightly nauseous for about 10 or 20 minutes. This is a good sign – it means the juice is working. The toxins are being flushed, and you are experiencing increased blood flow, leading to the headache. You’ll still get the benefits if you drink the juice with food, but since it will be absorbed much slower, you won’t get any side effects at all. Adding cabbage to the mix is even better, but not a lot of people can cope with the taste.

A word on wheat grass juice

Anyone who has tried a larger amount of wheat grass juice on an empty stomach will feel the effects immediately, which can sometimes be severe. This is due to the toxins leaving the liver and being carried to the kidneys to be eliminated. My next post will be on wheat grass juice. The problem is, it’s not as readily accessible as common vegetables, and in fact, if you don’t want to spend a lot of money, the only viable option for most people is growing the wheat grass themselves. Wheat grass juice tastes horrible to most people, proving the notion that the worse and more bitter a vegetable tastes, the more antioxidants it has.

It’s okay to eat the vegetables instead, but juicing is easier

Some people don’t like juicing, and particularly the cleanup of the juicer. If that’s you, you can just make it a habit to eat more greens, bitter and astringent vegetables like kale and cabbage and more antioxidants in general. This is key for losing weight, especially if you’re dealing with the dreaded ‘belly fat’.
