There are many ways to achieve that goal, one of which is by controlling body weight.
Now if the fat has accumulated and the body weight has increased, you have to try to reduce it, right, so you don’t become obese or overweight.
The most common effort is exercising.
But apparently there is a surefire way to support weight loss, namely through music.
In a study published in The Journal of Exercise Physiology in 2009, as quoted on the Medical News Today page, it was revealed that, for people who exercise with fast tempo music, the results of burning calories are even more significant.
Yes, listening to fast tempo music while exercising has an effect on a higher heart rate, an increase in body temperature, and an increased respiratory rate.
That way, the calories attached to the body are more burned during exercise, compared to those who exercise without music.
In that study, the fast tempo music referred to is the genre of hip-hop or rap.
It was explained in the study that music has the ability to release endorphins.
Endorphins are positive hormones that are good for the body.
When you exercise, this hormone is released which can lead to feelings of happiness and comfort.
Endorphins are proven to be very good for reducing appetite and burning fat in the body.
Not only that, music can actually reduce fat storage points in the abdomen.
This accumulation of fat in the abdomen is caused by stress which is controlled by the hormone cortisol.
The good news is, music can reduce levels of the hormone cortisol, which is one of the culprits for obesity.
That means, music at the same time performs its function to reduce stress and reduce the desire to eat carbohydrates, you know!
So, do you know whose fast-paced song you want to listen to?
Fortunately with advances in technology, we no longer need to store lots of songs on smartphones.
