All breathing students, when they slow down their breathing, start to loose weight naturally and experience more energy and less hunger as a result of their breathing exercises and lifestyle changes.
In this video, Dr. Artour Rakhimov and Volker Schmitz, discuss the relation of the Buteyko method and breathing retraining to weight loss. Dr. Artour Rakhimov does not advertise this side effect of losing weight. Losing weight naturally occurs from progressing in breathing retraining and achieving a higher body-oxygen level. Students practicing breathing retraining notice they start to eat less and they have more energy. It allows them to lose weight naturally without paying much attention and effort to doing it. Diet was previously not addressed in the beginning stages of breathing courses.
Ketogenic or low carb diets are great for losing weight. The last ten years has seen lots of medical research and people experienced losing weight from low carb diets. All students that had problems with weight and practiced breathing retraining start to gradually lose weight. Some students get their control pause level or body-oxygen level to 30 seconds and students with greater improvements get 50 to 60 seconds. Both of these students do not gain additional weight after 3 to 5 years.

According to Volker’s experience, there is a big shift where students get more energy from breathing retraining. Also, they naturally pay more attention to the type of food they eat without following a specific diet. People that were overweight mostly lost lots of weight when they improved their morning control pause. The morning control pause is explained in other videos done by Dr. Artour Rakhimov.
Volker personally lost around 10 kilograms or 20 pounds from breathing retraining. Currently, Volker has even incorporated a bit of carbs into his diet, but his weight is still stable. Weight loss is one of the most difficult areas for marketing because there are so many options. Dr. Artour Rakhimov mostly has students coming to him with diabetes, cancer, breathing conditions and other such health issues. Most of the students already are overweight, to begin with.

Dr. Buteyko the founder of the Buteyko method, taught some simple rules for diet. One is to eat when hungry. Idea number two is to stop eating in time when full. Overeating has devastating effects on body-oxygen levels. Overeating is especially harmful if the food is high in protein and high in calories. The taste of people naturally changes during breathing retraining courses. Many people have addictions to many types of junk foods. When these people get around 30 seconds for the MCP and especially around 50 to 60 seconds, they get a desire to eat raw foods and eat healthier naturally. In Soviet Russia, medical doctors discovered these tendencies in children. The children would like junk foods, but when they got a higher CP they would select vegetables to eat instead.
