Notable Quotes

“You’re taking twenty plus thousand breaths a day. So if you’re taking about 15 poor breaths during the day, why would you start breathing properly when you go to sleep? You are not going to breathe properly when you’re going to sleep. And a lot of people are going to sleep breathing through their mouth, and it affects your entire life.”
Mark Carbone


Episode Summary

We’re born knowing how to breathe properly: deeply through our noses, filling our lungs, and expanding our belly. But as we get older, the quality of our breathing starts to falter thanks to a number of reasons: stress, anxiety, and lifestyle, to name a few. The thing is, bad-quality breathing can impact our overall health including our weight.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to the CEO of PN Medical Mark Carbone to shed some light on the reality of breathing. He talks about the importance of good-quality breathing, as well as some tips and exercises on how to improve our breathing and increase our lung capacity.
