Miki Ryosuke says that breathing can keep you skinny. In an article published in the Daily Mail, The former Japanese actor claims to have lost nearly thirty pounds in 7 weeks by practicing what he calls the “Long Breath Diet”, a system whereby practitioners inhale slowly for three seconds and exhale vigorously for seven seconds. Mr. Ryosuke claims that by practicing his Long Breath technique for two to five minutes a day, overweight and obese patients will notice rapid weight loss benefits.
Even if Ryosuke claims are exaggerated, it is not an overblown assertion that there is an important relationship between fat cells and oxygen. A relationship that may play a role in the development of obesity and the difficulty of weight loss.
