What if I told you that you can lose weight fast without exercising, just by lying on an infrared heating mat, or in a portable infrared sauna at home?
Here’s what science has found:
A 30-minute session in an infrared sauna (while doing absolutely nothing) achieves the same health benefits of running 2-3 miles.
This is a scientifically proven fact.
That’s right. Relaxing for 30 minutes in an infrared sauna gets your heart rate up as if you were outside running your 3rd mile.
It makes you sweat the same amount of sweat (about 500 grams) as huffing and puffing on the Treadmill.
And get this: It burns the same amount of calories (300-600 calories!).
In 1981, The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported that:
“Regular use of a sauna may impart a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.”
This has mind-blowing consequences:
People in wheel chairs and people who can’t exercise for any reason – Arthritis, Chronic pain, joint discomfort – Can get the same benefits of daily aerobic exercise – Just by taking a nap in an infrared sauna.
Boosting your blood circulation is also an important factor in losing weight when you can’t be physically active.
For example, spicy foods, such as garlic, onions, cayenne pepper should be part of your daily meals every single day.
(But, if you have hypertension or suffer from an ulcer – Check with your doctor first).
Chili peppers, other than being honorary members of the super-foods family, are well-known for their ability to increase blood flow, strengthen arteries and stimulate the heart (by “exercising” it…)
You can add 1/2 teaspoon ground Cayenne Pepper to your green juice, you can add it to soups, potatoes and basically anything you cook – They make everything taste better.
Basically, any food that is naturally spicy will increase your blood circulation. Mustard, ginger and the all mighty Turmeric are a few examples.
