Get Out Of Breath

In a December 2014 article on the BBC website ( they talk about how "... losing weight requires unlocking the carbon stored in fat cells, thus reinforcing that often-heard refrain of 'eat less, move more'."

One academic has likened fat metabolism to burning gas (petrol) in a car - it makes heat and drives movement, but also creates and releases waste byproducts. "The atoms left [over] after breaking down fat for energy are like the exhaust fumes," he said. Breathing out hard and expelling carbon dioxide during exercise is the way that our bodies expel those exhaust fumes.

Consistent small efforts pay dividends

Let's face it, when you're fat it's really easy to get out of breath. We don't even have to try very hard, right!? For me, the thing that seems to work well, as is so often the case, is not a few REALLY BIG efforts. It's the consistent small efforts every single day that pay off big in the end - "Slow and steady wins the race".
