Increase Oxygen - Reduce Fat
More Oxygen & Less Sugar - Healthier BMI
Oxycise - Interval Training - HIIT & EPOC
Low Sugar & Carbohydrate Consumption
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
Most understand that bodyweight boils down to a supply (caloric intake) vs.
demand (calorie requirement) formula. While this is a simplified way of framing
this problem, it is essentially accurate. If one consumes more calories than required, the body
will store the excess calories as FAT. This article reduces the relatively complex
problem down to the main supply/demand foundational issues most responsible.

More oxygen = more efficient metabolism - less fat
Increased oxygen intake supercharges metabolism increasing the calorie burn rate. In short, more
oxygen promotes robust calorie utilization even when at rest.
Less carbohydrates & sugar consumption = less fat
Reducing high calorie consumption like carbohydrate (breads, pastas, potatoes etc.) and sugar
(cakes, cookies, candy etc.) with an emphasis required for sugar beverages (soda, processed
juices, sports drinks etc.) is a must to succeed in reducing total body fat. In short,
reducing or eliminating consumption of these high calorie foods dramatically lowers the total
amount of calories that require burning. This oxygen supercharged metabolism not only converts
the body into a fat burning machine but increases the body’s ability to repair tissues and
restore optimal health.
Lower body fat = better health
Yes, less fat means less potential toxic accumulation. Because fat tissues are favorite excess
toxin storage receptacle, lowering total fat reduces storage space thereby encouraging reduced
total toxic accumulation promoting optimal health. Perhaps it is clearer why excess body fat
is so health destructive. Now lets move on to how to resolve perhaps the most health damaging
problems currently confronting man kind excess body fat.
A better way to reduce fat and restore optimal health (Oxycise)
It may be hard to believe but the answer to the human overweight problem and obesity
may be increasing oxygen intake. When the early studies revealed that people could loose fat
by practicing simple breathing exercises scientists scoffed as the lab results seemed too good to
be true. It has long been known that breathing produces many physiological changes associated
with metabolic set point and weight loss. One study conducted at revealed that deep breathing
helped subjects burn significantly more calories than bicycling, many wrote the study off as
erroneous or unbelievable. After all, we breathe 24/7 while continuing to accumulate fat, how
could breathing have anything to do with fat reduction?
The latest research findings reveal a new way to increase oxygen, reduce fat, and restore optimal
health to those who are willing to adopt healthier behavior habits.
1. The levels of atmospheric oxygen have steadily declined as a result of pollution and climate
shifts. A drop of .002 percent per year may seem minor, but the accumulated change is dramatic.
2. Humans have not evolved biologically as rapidly as our sedentary lifestyles have changed.
3. The changes associated with modern life has alters breathing patterns, causing most humans to
never challenge physical limits required for most human history resulting in short, shallow
breaths rather than deep, oxygen loading breaths. These truncated breaths pattern doesn't flood
the body with oxygen (oxygen loading) – a requirement for metabolic supercharging fat/weight loss.
This exercise and oxygen deficient lifestyle trend along with increased caloric intake has
resulted in the increasingly obese and ill health epidemic currently plaguing the human species.
The good news
Now researchers are aware of the various components that prevent oxygen-loading induced weight
loss, they are able to identify oxygenating strategies or breathing exercises that will.
• Supercharge metabolism
• Reduce fat-trapped toxins
• Reduce even end overweight fatigue
Why proper breathing exercises (oxygen loading) reduces fat!
1. Oxygen optimizes metabolism and slimming nutrients. The digestive tract is lined with tiny
fingerlike projections called intestinal villi. Their task is to absorb calcium, iodine,
essential fats, amino acids, and dozens of other metabolism-supercharging nutrients. To do this
efficiently, intestinal villi require an enormous amount of oxygen – much more than most other
tissues in the body require. When oxygen is in short supply (as is the case in around 90% of the
human population, as a result of shallow, low oxygen breathing), the ability of villi to absorb
nutrients plunges by around 70%, according to research at the University of Edinburgh in the UK.
When oxygen intake improves, nutrient absorption is increased significantly within minutes,
quickly raising metabolic rate as much as 30%.
2. Oxygen increases levels of fat-burning energy. Weight loss and high energy are dependent on
the quick conversion of food and fat into packets of usable energy called adenosine triphosphate
(ATP). For this to occur, cells need to be bathed in slightly alkaline (a pH above 7) fluids.
Oxygen is an alkaline gas, so deep breathing keeps cells oxygenated, helping the body to maintain
a slightly alkaline (above 7.0) pH. Oxygen loading or deep breathing is the secret to not only
optimal ATP production (energy), but optimal health (lean (low fat), Body Mass Index – BMI).
3. Oxygen serves to remove fat-accumulated toxins. Reduction of pesticides, preservatives and
other accumulated chemical toxins is essential for fast fat reduction (weight loss). Scientists
have discovered that when cellular (fat) born toxin levels rise, thyroid gland, adrenals and
other metabolic and weight-regulating glands become sluggish. To exacerbate the problem, in an
attempt to protect these vital organs, the body forms additional fat to store more toxins. This
autonomic biological action pushes the body in the wrong direction. Fat accumulated toxins must
be removed to clear the path for fat removal.
More good news
Up to 70% of toxins are easily converted into gases that can be quickly expelled through proper
deep breathing exercises. In short, proper breathing can significantly reduce the body’s toxic
load. In fact, simply breathing slowly and deeply, to maximize the oxygen uptake, the carbon
dioxide and wastes exhalation, increases the release of fat-accumulated toxins by up to fifteen
times that of normal breathing.
4. Oxygen oxidizes body fat. This breakdown of accumulated body fat occurs when oxygen molecules
combine with fat, oxidizing or burning it. Scientific research reveals that most people use less
than 25 percent of their two-gallon lung capacity, which dramatically reduces metabolic set point
and weight-loss potential. When people improve their breathing by maximizing their oxygen intake,
the amount of bodyfat oxidized (burned) weekly more than doubles.
5. Proper breathing (oxygen loading) significantly reduces stress hormone production. Keeping the
bloodstream adequately oxygenated calms the entire central nervous system by lowering production
of the stress hormone Cortisol by around 50% in 10 minutes. In fact, studies reveal that simple
proper breathing (oxygenation) can significantly reduce Cortisol and eliminate the need to diet.
When oxygen levels are high calming the nervous system, the pancreas reduces the production of
fat-storing insulin. In short the result of proper oxygenation, the body is much less likely to
convert food consumption into body fat.
TEST - Oxygen Uptake Breathing Test (Take this short quiz to check your breathing)
Place one hand on your belly and the other on your chest. Slowly inhale and exhale through your
nose a few times. Which hand moved? Ideally, the one on your chest stayed relatively still, while
the one on your stomach moved in and out. That's the sign of deep belly breathing, the type that
maximizes oxygen intake. If the hand on your chest moved more than the hand on the belly, you're
breathing is shallow and is one of the signs of oxygen deprivation.
Breathing Exercise (Oxycise)
The breathing exercise that oxygenates the body, increases metabolic efficiency and leads to
By practicing regularly deep breathing exercises one can increase the amount of oxygen flowing
through the body and expel up to 70% of the accumulated fat-trapping toxins. When maximum oxygen
saturation is reached, the absorption of fat-burning nutrients is doubled. And when optimal
pH (7.365) balance is achieved, more stored fat is burned for fuel. While this biochemical
chain reaction is complex, realizing the slimming and health related benefits are not. The
correct breathing techniques will bathe every cell in the body in oxygen. Perhaps the best
part is the enormous health benefits start almost instantly!
Shift the body into metabolic overdrive with the following simple breathing exercise. This
same breathing pattern helped study subjects burn 140% more calories than bicycle riding.
It’s generally known that proper deep breathing, like aerobics, is a true fat-burning activity.
In short, to loose weight, one must increase oxygen intake.
A proven strategy
15 minutes of breathing exercises daily. These can be done in 15-1 minute sessions, 1-15 minute
session or any variation in-between. The following breathing technique (Oxycise), can be
performed in any location and in most positions, as long as the focus is on the breathing the
Step by step
Breath in fully through your nose, relaxing the belly and take in as much air as possible.
2. Lift While holding your breath, tighten your abdominal muscles from the bottom to pull
in and lift your belly.
3. Exhale Breathe out through the mouth (as if blowing through a straw).
See, I told you it was simple. Of course it’s not enough to know how to oxycise, the secret is
to practice it regularly (at least 15 minutes daily). To get better, more rapid results,
oxycise more often. One of the best parts of oxycise is there is only one minor potentially
negative side effect. If you become light headed during oxycising, simply stop oxycising and
start again when you recover mental clarity.
Interval training & EPOC
EPOC stands for 'Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption' and is a unique training method that
distinguishes interval training superior to all other types of aerobic training for weight loss.
EPOC occurs in the body after intense physical exercise drains muscles of its energy source.
This energy must be replenished in the body which can take up to 48 hours. During this time
the body has no alternative but to burn up fat reserves. After EPOC occurs, the blood cells
are rushing around the belly or but & thighs, grabbing as much of the fat as it can to burn
and use as energy for the next two days even if your watching TV or sleeping. If you think
this is too good to be true, there’s more good news. EPOC is only the immediate benefit.
When the body experiences EPOC frequently, the body’s ability to convert energy directly
into the muscle increases dramatically. The muscles ability to store energy increases,
the demands for fat release increases, and interval training starts convincing the body
to funnel new energy to the muscles development instead of sending them to fat storage.
Interval training essentially turns the body and it’s metabolism into a fat burning
machine rather than a toxin and fat storing receptacle.
Unfortunately, most of us have been taught that low-intensity aerobic exercise is the best method
for burning off extra body fat. Modern research reveals this belief is simply not true. Not only
is low-intensity aerobic exercise far more time consuming but it is relatively ineffective in
reducing fat and very effective in consuming lots of valuable time.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
HIIT is the secret to rapid fat loss. Many studies have proven the incredible fat burning
effects that HIIT confers on the body. In fact, the first few studies sighted interval training
as the benchmark for rapid fat loss, after the HIIT study group lost 9 times more fat
than the group doing standard (low-intensity) aerobic exercises. HIIT works so well because it
Perhaps the biggest problem with HIIT is, as the name implies, its high intensity. Many people
have never experienced high intensity physical training before so don’t know what it requires
(hard work). While HIIT is hard work, it is short in duration compared to the long physical
labor associated with standard low-intensity aerobic training. If you’re still reading, I
assume you’re ready to take the next step and at least consider beginning a HIIT training
Interval training is essentially an exercise program that consists of high intensity exercise
for a period of time, followed by low intensity exercise for a period of time. These 'sets'
should consist of exercises at or close to a person’s current level of physical condition and
will vary widely from person to person. The secret is to increase intensity to a point where
one is breathing very heavy. Then reduce intensity to recover then increase intensity again.
The main idea is to push the body hard enough to significantly increase oxygen demand as the
EPOC is what causes the metabolic changes that efficiently burn fat. While the best results
occur when doing interval training for at least 15 minutes three times a week, any interval
training is better than none. I recommend starting slow and working up to three 15 minute
interval training sessions a week. Remember this kind of training is extremely demanding and
should not be pushed to hard at first to avoid injury.
Oxycising, interval training (HIIT & EPOC) and reducing carbohydrate/sugar consumption are the
answers to converting the body into a fat burning machine. Oxycising can be practiced nearly
anywhere at any time and produces dynamic health benefits for the body. Oxygen loading with
HIIT is effective because it incorporates EPOC which supercharges the metabolic set point. Both
these exercises confer enormous health benefits on the body while effectively burning fat.
Reducing sugar consumption with special emphasis on sugar beverages lowering the metabolic
burden on the body to reduce fat, supercharges healing and repair which encourage biochemical
balance and optimal health (homeostasis).

OPTIMAL HEALTH ACTION STEPS
1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence
Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity,
denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary
wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death.
DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR
HEALTH, WHO WILL?
The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of
either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely
true when it comes to health.
Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment)
are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments.
Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles
solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge
commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define
the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to
accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)
