Can it really be that improper breathing is the root of weight problems? If you are sick of dieting, you'll be thrilled to read that "Diets are the enemy. They make you paranoid, insane, and fat. They are the main obstacle between you and your ideal weight." For Pam Grout, the key to weight loss is breath! In order to increase her energy level, Grout began a routine of daily breathing exercises using self-help audiotapes. Within three weeks, not only was her energy restored tenfold, but she also lost 10 pounds.
Written with self-deprecating humor and a clear, up-beat style, Jumpstart Your Metabolism takes the reader on a journey through many breathing-related issues, all designed to enhance breath awareness and restore healthy breathing. Her text elaborates on the key fact that by breathing deeply and increasing oxygen intake, the body burns hydrogen--the key culprit in storing excess fat--faster and more efficiently. Grout's daily maintenance program includes three core breathing exercises ("Baywatch Bikini Breaths," "Kung Fu Breaths," and "Walk Around the Block with Your Mouth Full of Water"). Also included are a bibliography on books about breath and breathing, a short quiz to ascertain the degree of your breathing problem, a chapter on the mechanics of breathing, and information-stocked sidebars that serve as enthusiastic breathing coaches.
Pam Grout is a breathing coach who experienced the weight-loss benefits of better breathing firsthand and an award-winning freelance journalist who lives in Merriam, Kansas.
