Sumo Secrets to Obesity

Sumo wrestlers are geniuses at gaining weight. Here, according to Mary Roach, contributing editor of Health Magazine is how they do it:

  1. Skip Breakfast – it slows your metabolism
  2. Exercise on an empty stomach – it slows your metabolism even more
  3. Take a nap after you eat – your body has to store the food instead of use it
  4. Eat bigger meals late in the day – your body has to store more food

So if you want to become a genius at weight management, do the opposite:

  1. Eat a hearty breakfast – the body needs fuel to boost metabolism
  2. Eat a light dinner – the body won’t have any food to store while you sleep
  3. Evaluate the short- and long-term effects of any food before you eat it. How will it make you feel over a period of time? Not just in the moment?
  4. Never “starve” yourself – starvation slows your metabolism
  5. Put fuel in your belly before exercising to sustain your metabolism
  6. Exercise to build muscle mass which will increase your metabolism
