Rebounding for Weight Loss – Forget Crazy Diets!
While we stress the importance of eating a balanced diet, we are actually more concerned with adding a pleasurable, non strenuous exercise element to your life, with rebounding for weight loss.
University studies show clearly that you spend much more energy, or calories, during rebounding, compared to usual exercise. However, this alone does not explain the dramatic weight loss stated by people who have been rebounding regularly.
The Lymphatic system
The secret lies in the lymphatic system. The lymph is the liquid which circulates in-between our cells, to carry the wastes and toxins, out of our body. This keeps us healthy.
Most of us are unaware that our bodies contain four times as much lymph fluid as blood. However our lymphatic system, which is also our immune system, does not have a pump, like the heart, to keep its liquid in motion. It depends on our natural movements for circulation! If we don’t move enough, excess levels of toxin actually clutters our lymphatic system and “poisons” our cells. In some places the lymph fluid actually crystallizes into cellulite, which many of us know is hard to eliminate.
Rebound exercise has been found to be the most effective way to “re-prime the pump” and keep it going, due to the up & down swinging in a low impact environment.
The lymphatic system also monitors our metabolism.
As we get older, we seem to put on more weight, which becomes harder and harder to lose.
Studies have shown that our base metabolic rate, which is the rate that our bodies burn calories, decreases as our lymphatic system becomes less efficient.
As we regularly rebound, our base metabolic rate will become increasingly more efficient. This results in noticeable improvements in our muscle tone and weight management. In fact, we are actually re-training each cell to perform as it did when we were younger. Once we have re-set our metabolism, we will burn more calories at a higher rate, and will not regain weight if we continue rebounding.
Weight loss alone is not the be-all and end-all
As stated in the first paragraph, a holistic approach to weight loss is important. Apart from exercise and a balanced diet, there are various nutritional supplements that can aid in losing weight healthily. Turmeric has been found to be a superfood that aids in weight loss.
