the tl;dr of that article is that we lose a ton of weight exhaling carbon dioxide each day.
my question: if you were to make a conscious effort to breathe more often while you are awake, would it speed up the production of carbon dioxide and thus make you lose weight faster?
I know breathing rate generally increases during exercise as blood flow increases, which might contribute to weight loss during exercise, but would the opposite also be true where breathing faster increases blood flow?
also does anyone know any possible consequences this could have on the body?
sorry if this idea is super far out in left field, I'm a bit new to the fitness field, and I'm trying to explore a bit to get my bearings, and this is a thought that came to mind.
