There is more to losing weight than what a scale says.
Weight loss is about all of the following issues –
Circulation, Lymph Drainage, Exercise, Massage, Metabolism, Muscle, Stress
Simply standing on the VibePlate has an effect on all of these areas. And since whole body vibration training on the VibePlate is low impact, it may be a particularly good choice for older or the overweight who have trouble doing traditional weight-bearing exercise.
VibePlate provides a full body massage. This helps to make swelling in your extremities go down. Because the lymphatic system is used as your body’s drainage system, this kind of massage provides a lymphatic drainage massage. The reason this kind of massage is a great way to help with weight loss is because it improves your body’s circulation which stimulates the metabolism.
This process also helps to clean the body by using the improved circulation to bring bodily waste towards a better, more effective removal process. When the lymphatic system becomes blocked or begins working slowly then it effects all of the body. All of the toxins that your body will normally throw away will then be soaked into other organs and can cause other harmful health conditions, including but not limited to weight gain. The massage is a gentle and soft process, quite opposite to deeper and harsher massages. The lymphatic drainage massage works with the filtering and cleaning of the lymph nodes, starting at the arms and legs and moving towards the lymph nodes.
New research reveals that 80% of overweight women have sluggish lymphatic systems and that getting them running smoothly again is the key to weight loss and feeling great! Belly Fat. Losing the extra belly fat, a key biological premise: that cleansing the lymphatic system is crucial for overall health and weight loss.
The lymphatic system is a complex network of fluid-filled tubes that continuously bathes our cells and then carries away the body’s “sewage”-toxins, waste liquid-to filters called lymph nodes, where harmful substances are trapped and neutralized. Believe it or not, there is three times more lymph fluid than there is blood in the body, doctors of homeopathic medicine tell us. But while blood has a pump, the heart to keep it moving, lymph must be pumped by the movement of our muscles. The less we move, the more stagnant the lymph system becomes.
Many experts believe that a lazy lymphatic system is directly connected to the formation of cellulite because backed up fluid “sticks” to fat cells. Second, bloated tissues prevent cells from properly absorbing nutrients and oxygen. In a sense, the cells begin to starve. And as cells starve for nutrients, it only makes sense that intense hunger and cravings will set in. Worse, without adequate oxygen to ignite the metabolic process, fewer calories are burned and less energy is produced.
Exercise begins to repair a broken metabolism. Your metabolism can indeed pick up again, in large part through moving your body every day. Your body will burn fat better at low to moderate workout intensities. You will burn a greater percentage of fat exercising at lower intensities. This is especially the case for those of you that are just starting an exercise regimen. Great news for anyone trying to lose weight – you do not have to “kill” yourself in order to lose fat pounds.
Also, exercise is critical in the maintenance phase, which is well known to be more difficult than the weight loss phase. Exercise is very, very important for maintaining lost weight, and people who are not physically active are more likely to gain weight.
Moving Lymph with Massage
Studies show that virtually any type of massage can push up to 78% of stagnant lymph back into circulation, making it perhaps the most pampering way to speed weight loss! Massage can also free trapped toxins so they can be readily carried away by the lymph. While many massage therapists are trained in manual lymphatic drainage, the cost can be prohibitive.
Getting muscles pumping in any form will increase lymph flow significantly, say pros. Just standing on the VibePlate creates added force of gravity. This forces the millions of one-way valves in the lymphatic system to open expansively, increasing lymph flow many times over.
Women who detox their livers and get their lymph flowing also notice they have clear, smooth, glowing skin and firm, toned bodies.
A lymph massage is a certain massage that has been known to aid in weight loss and shrinking waist lines. It has more benefits than just the waist slimming features, such as reducing cellulite, and detoxifying your body through the lymphatic system. Many women find that adding the lymphatic massage to their weight loss routines is an easy way to boost the amount of weight they lose and keep off.
Boosting metabolism is the holy grail of weight watchers everywhere, but how fast your body burns calories depends on several things. Your metabolism includes all the things your body does to turn food into energy and keep you going. Some people have a faster metabolism than others.
Unfortunately, as we age, our metabolic rate slows down. Starting at about age 25, the average and not physically active person’s metabolism declines between 5% and 10% per decade, which accumulates to between 20% and 40% metabolism over the adult life span.
The most effective way to “boost” your metabolism is through exercise, especially if you are dieting. Exercise provides a protective effect against a drop in metabolism. This is because people tend to lose a considerable portion of muscle in calorie-reduction programs that don’t include strength training, whereas one of the main benefits from exercise in weight loss programs is the preservation of muscle.
Exercise becomes even more important as you get older. You naturally lose muscle mass with age, which slows down your metabolism. Working out can stop that slide. You’ll be doing more than just helping your metabolism. Your heart, bones, and even your mood will benefit. It’s a win all around.
Every pound of muscle uses about 6 calories a day just to sustain itself, while each pound of fat burns only 2 calories daily. That small difference can add up over time. After a session of training on the VibePlate, muscles are activated all over your body, raising your average daily metabolic rate.
When you increase your muscle, you boost your resting metabolic rate. Working out on the VibePlate consumes calories, raises your metabolism, and builds muscle that will consume extra calories later on. This means that all other things being equal, your body will burn more calories even when you are doing nothing.
Incorporating the VibePlate into your training allows you to activate your fast twitch muscle fibers. By activating your fast twitch muscle fibers through the use of the VibePlate, can help produce increases in strength. While using the VibePlate, up to 100% of your target muscle fibers can be recruited, instead of only 40% through conventional training without the VibePlate. By stimulating your muscle fibers through training on the VibePlate, blood circulation, muscle density, and overall strength can increase.
The surprise link between the lymphatic system and weight loss; everyday stress. For most of us, stress is a fact of life. Unfortunately, research reveals that it’s also a fact of fat.
Here’s what happens: Your body responds to all stress in exactly the same way. So every time you have a stressful day, your brain instructs your cells to release potent hormones. You get a burst of adrenaline, which taps stored energy so you can fight or flee. At the same time, you get a surge of cortisol, which tells your body to replenish that energy even though you haven’t used very many calories. This can make you hungry…very hungry. And your body keeps on pumping out that cortisol as long as the stress continues.
With your adrenal glands pumping out cortisol, production of the muscle-building hormone testosterone slows down. “Over time, this drop causes a decrease in your muscle mass, so you burn fewer calories,” explains Shawn Talbott, PhD, author of The Cortisol Connection. “This occurs naturally as you age, but high cortisol levels accelerate the process.” Cortisol also encourages your body to store fat—especially visceral fat, which is particularly dangerous because it surrounds vital organs and releases fatty acids into your blood, raising cholesterol and insulin levels and paving the way for heart disease and diabetes.
“Moving your muscles is an effective, instant stress reliever. It actually fools your body into thinking you’re escaping the source of your stress,” says Talbott. “Exercise makes your blood circulate more quickly, transporting the cortisol to your kidneys and flushing it out of your system.”
Not only will a soothing lymph massage help slim down your waist, belly fat, but it is also known to decrease cellulite in your thighs and lower buttocks. It tones your arms and legs as well as helping the rest of your body by quickening your metabolism. It can also help feel much more energetic and happy.
