Metabolic Syndrome is the new understanding of how someone becomes overweight and struggles with a cluster of health issues.
The number one cause of metabolic syndrome is food insecurity during childhood. Research is finding more connections to how the lesser known hormones are broken when the body/brain determines it is in famine. The body then can lose the ability to restore its proper function and the body continues in fat storage mode even though food insecurities are resolved.
This is why people who eat healthy (low fat, no sugar, vegetable and fruit) and exercise can still gain weight and struggle with diseases related to obesity and its related diseases.

Stress Evaluation will show you the areas that have the most stress on your life and give you an cumulative score for all the stress events in the last two years of your life. This enables you to develop a plan to reduce stress and make your life healthier.
Oxygen debt is a physiological phenomenon. When someone has consumed oxygen at the high rate, shortage of oxygen causes increased respiration and the body attempts to replace the used oxygen. Then it is called oxygen debt.
When Oxygen Debt Occurs
Classically, oxygen debt occurs when people exercise; breathe heavily after exercising, training, athletes who increase their endurance. Thereby reducing the rate at which oxygen debt sets in, allowing them to work harder and longer than people who are not good in body condition. When a person breathing heavily is said to be ‘paying off the oxygen debt’. Number of factors contributes to the development of oxygen debt. For muscles to work well, they must be oxygenated. Oxygen is also used in the production of ATP, a neurotransmitter which is critical to muscle function. When the body’s supply of oxygen begins to get depleted, it switches to anaerobic respiration to power the muscles, causing a buildup of lactic acid as a byproduct. Lactic acid can lead to cramps, and the only way to break it down is to oxidize it. These factors combine to encourage the body to supply more oxygen through means like dilating the blood vessels, increasing the heart rate, and increasing respiration.
Therefore, must exercise physiologists prefer to describe the extra oxygen as recovery oxygen or excess posting exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), rather than oxygen debt? Oxygen is not the only thing which the body may need to replenish after strenuous exercise; people may require electrolytes to restore the balance of electrolytes in the body, along with nutritional support, which will help their bodies make necessary neurotransmitters, to avoid oxygen debt.
Ever wonder why people take gasping breaths after an exercise or any strenuous activity? This is due to a natural physical reaction after such activity.
What is Oxygen Debt?
When a person exercises, he or she needs oxygen for the muscles. But, continuous use will deplete the supply and the body will need to find ways to get more oxygen. It then produces energy without oxygen or what is called aerobic. Aerobic respiration produces lactic acid which has negative effects on the body such as cramp or tiredness. To counter the negative effect after exercising, our body needs oxygen to burn the lactic acid. This causes us to breathe heavily afterwards. We need to “payback” the oxygen that was consumed.
Avoiding Oxygen Debt
Oxygen debt is made less of a problem especially by athletes by building up stamina. A person who is fit will need less time in regaining their breath after exercise because they will suffer less oxygen debt.
Have you ever been exercising and suddenly catch a cramp? If so, you more than likely have been a victim of a natural phenomenon known as oxygen debt. Oxygen debt occurs when your body uses oxygen quicker than you can breathe and replace it. All muscles in the human body require a certain amount of oxygen to work efficiently; when these supplies are depleted the body must supply energy in some other fashion. Continued use of muscles coupled with low oxygen levels results in the production of lactic acid.
Oxygen Debt and Lactic Acid
Lactic acid is the culprit that produces the debilitating cramps that plague professional and amateur athletes alike. To prevent an oxygen debt, it is best to slowly train the body to increase strength and endurance; this reduces the rate of oxygen debt thereby decreasing the chances of cramps caused by lactic acid.
The P90X Extreme Home Fitness is a great workout system for anyone who wants to take their workouts to the next level. Tony Horton does a great job of encouraging and motivating you to keep going. He has a unique blend of accepting that not everyone is at the fitness level that he and the other athletes in the DVD are at, yet pushing you to want to do better and more. Other workout systems have a lot of negative feedback because of the narrator / facilitator and they are usually compared to Tony Horton. It’s no wonder that p90X is the top selling fitness program on Amazon.
When your body is at a rested state, you receive enough oxygen to function properly. During strenuous activities, your body uses up a lot of oxygen. In fact, your body cannot keep up with supplying the amount of oxygen needed with the intense workout. Oxygen debt helps you to keep going during strenuous exercise, making sure that your muscles are still receiving enough nutrients to function properly.
Impact of Oxygen Debt
Without enough oxygen, you will grow tired, weak and have increased difficulty in breathing. After an exhausting workout, loss of oxygen normalizes the body systems by restoring glycogen to the muscles. In this state of oxygen debt, you will be breathing quite hardly until the oxygen levels are back to normal again.
Have you ever noticed how individuals catch their breath and sometimes experience cramps when exercising? This is a result of oxygen depletion in the body. During exercise, the amount of oxygen consumption is higher than the amount of oxygen intake.
Cause of Oxygen Debt
This signals a switch from aerobic to anaerobic glycolysis. The switch is necessary to continue production of ATP that is used by the muscles to function properly. If the oxygen is not immediately replaced, it will result to the buildup of lactic acid that causes cramps. The amount of oxygen required to recover after exercise is referred to as oxygen debt.
If you are involved in intensive exercise you need to make sure that you are monitoring your o-sat and keep your body on a path to restoration if you reach a significant oxygen debt.
