Can you lose weight by changing your breath?
Based on my experiences teaching breathwork while applying my knowledge helping people with their weight and stress, I unequivocally say,
“Yes, changing your breath can help you lose weight.”.
But, rather than stopping there, I decided to uncover the mechanisms based on my knowledge and expertise, and then do some research to see if my hypothesis holds true.

Change your breath to lose weight
I’ve researched, experienced and taught how simple acts of breathing can help people
[+] reduce stress to calm,
[+] ward off disease with increased immunity, and
[+] leave them feeling amazing.
How does this work?
On the surface, it seems fairly simple to me. When you calm your body, you lower your stress hormones (like adrenaline and cortisol) that, when elevated, keep your body from using its fat stores.
3 Breathing Problems
Diving deeper into this based on the works of Dr Buteyko and then Patrick McKeown, we find that overweight people tend to
(1) take in bigger breaths,
(2) breathe through their mouths, and
(3) breathe from the chest.
These problems negatively impact the amount of oxygen in your blood. When these three problems are addressed, people often find it much easier to lose weight.
Maintain a healthy pH
The pH of your blood is tightly regulated and influenced by both oxygen (alkaline) and carbon dioxide (acidic).
When your blood pH levels are too low (acidic) you might feel tired, fatigued, and lethargic. It may not come as a surprise to find that overly processed and sugary foods are acidic and may be further exacerbating the problem.
Breathwork gives you more oxygen.
Beyond breathing properly on a regular basis to improve weight and health, the practice of so-called “breathwork” can also improve weight and health markers.
Are you getting enough oxygen?
Unfortunately most people do not get enough oxygen throughout the body due to stress, poor environment or even toxins.
When you do a form of hyperventilation popularized by Wim Hof, you will be hyper-oxygenating the body thereby sending oxygen to the cells. This can help your body burn fat, improve blood circulation and even tone abdominal muscles.

Lose Weight during Thanksgiving
Preparing for Thanksgiving in Thailand
Thanksgiving is coming soon and, although it won’t be near the same as being at home with family, we’re hosting dinner again here in Chiang Mai.
But instead of one big (and expensive!) turkey, we’re going to prepare many small birds: partridge.
How do you lose weight during Thanksgiving?
I was thinking about writing an article about what to eat, biohacks you can implement, and more. But then it struck me…
There’s ONE simple thing you can do to lose weight during Thanksgiving.
You can fast.
I don’t mean that you skip eating your Thanksgiving feast. Not at all. You still feast with family.
But you simply make Thanksgiving your One Meal A Day (OMAD). Knowing that people commonly eat at about 4pm, this is the time for you to break your fast. Give yourself about 2 hours – in this case until 6pm to finish eating.
You can biohack your feast.
You can also do things like starting with the most satiating foods first by eating turkey first. You could minimize carbs. You could take MCT oil. You could take activated charcoal. And so on.
Catching Mice, Lifting Weights, Semi-fasted Workouts
I finally caught a mouse! We occasionally hear them scampering around in the attic in our house. So months ago I set some traps (breaking my foot through and nearly falling through the ceiling!) in an effort to catch them.
But after a few weeks of climbing into the attic to check and reset traps, they were still empty. So I gave up.
We’re now preparing our small house to host events and sell products and, because of the urine odor, I decided to set the traps in there. And on the second night we got one!
I’m back in the gym about once a week lifting weights both to build more strength and to measure my progress. Some injuries to my finger, elbow and shoulder have kept me away for while so I’m planning to heal while I get stronger.
Also on the exercise front, I’m back to doing the occasional biohacked semi-fasted workout. I’ll drink my morning Bulletproof coffee, and then take a combination of ketones and essential amino acids about 30 minute before doing a quick workout to give me a quick hit of energy.
Then I feast!
