We all have our own reasons for working out. For many of us, it’s
a stress reliever. For others it’s stressful to even think about
going to the gym and being around a bunch of sweaty people in tight clothes.
Regardless of your reason, almost all of us have a similar goal. We want
less body fat and want to look better both with our clothes on and off.
A solid training plan, good nutrition and enough sleep are three things that drive these body changes. Those are very important aspects of your health but what if I told you that there was an x-factor to accelerate fat loss? What if you could burn the same number of calories as running 4-6 miles in just 3 minutes? I know, it sounds too good to be true but it’s not. It’s Whole Body Cryotherapy.
Whole Body Cryotherapy is essentially a cold exposure session for the body that lasts 3 minutes. You stand in a tube and liquid nitrogen gas is released at temperatures as low as -200 degrees Fahrenheit. I know, it doesn’t sound like fun but it’s ten times easier to tolerate than a cold shower or an ice bath. Not only that but you get some astounding body results from it!
Because of the extreme cold exposure and rapid change in skin temperature, your body has an interesting response. The body produces heat internally to warm itself back up. This process is called cold thermogenesis.
Before we get into how to use whole body cryotherapy to help with fat loss, let’s talk about fat itself. Fat, also known as adipose tissue can be either white or brown. White fat is the fat you think about that you’d love to get rid of. The stuff that accumulates around your waist, thighs, and arms. Brown fat on the other hand is something completely different. Brown fat is more dense, it’s full of energy/heat producing cells and it helps regulate our metabolism.
So, white fat bad, brown fat good! How do you get more brown fat? One of the ways that has been shown to increase brown fat is cold exposure like Whole Body Cryotherapy. This has been shown to help convert white fat into brown fat. It’s also been shown to increase your metabolism by as much as 350%
When we look at the pure caloric output that you get from a bout of Whole Body Cryotherapy, it’s easy to see why weight loss occurs. One bout of Whole Body Cryotherapy has been shown to burn between 500 and 800 calories. That’s a lot of calories that get burned for standing in a tube for 3 minutes!
That many calories is equivalent to running for 40-60 minutes at a 10 minute mile pace.
- That’s the same amount of calories you’d get from eating 2.5-4 Krispy Kreme glazed donuts.
- That’s the same amount of calories you’d get from eating 1-2 Chick-Fil-A sandwiches.
That’s the same amount of calories you’d get from eating 1-1.5
IN-N-OUT double doubles.
Now, let’s assume you didn’t eat those delicious foods that I just referenced. Each time you did Whole Body Cryotherapy you’re burning that extra 500-800 calories. If you did that twice a week that’s 1000-1600 calories a week. If you did that for a month that’s 4000-6400 extra calories burned off!
Your body requires 3500 extra burned calories to lose a pound of body fat. That means that just adding in Whole Body Cryotherapy twice a week would help you burn an extra 1-2 pounds of body fat a month! Throw a good nutrition and exercise plan in with it and you’ve got a recipe for some serious body changes in a very positive way.
