How Spinning Around in a Circle Like a 4-year old Child will Skyrocket Your Weight Loss Success”

October 18, 2008 at 9:26 am (fitness)

I’ve mentioned before about how shocked I am at the daily decisions some people make that go directly against their efforts to lose fat and get lean (despite their claims that they are “trying everything”).Well, once again I’m baffled. Here’s what I saw…

I was waiting for a flight last week, and I wanted to get something to eat before getting on a 3 hour flight back home. Even though I had some almonds and a couple whole food bars to snack on in my carry-on bag (I try to always be prepared with healthy snacks while traveling), I knew I was going to need something more substantial to eat to hold me over until I would get home later that night.

Although most of the places to eat in the airport were your typical chain fast food joints, I was lucky enough to stumble onto a small cafe that actually had some surprisingly healthy options.

Now here’s what shocked me…

There was a fast food joint right next to this healthy cafe.  The line for the First fast food was at least 20 people deep with everyone that got through the line stuffing their face with all sorts of deep fried nasty-ness.

However, there were only 2 people in the healthy cafe (and I was the 3rd)! Huh!?!

Now I do realize that in recent times, the major fast food chains are at least attempting to offer up some healthier options for people to choose from, but I can assure you from what I saw, nobody was choosing any of the healthy options over the deep fried junk.

Not only that, but as I scanned the long line of people waiting patiently for their chemical-laden trans fat infested “happy” meals, I noticed that not 1 single person was normal weight… every single person in the line was overweight



I Will send u guys the rest of the info during the midday.

Below, I’ll give you the logic and rationale on why spinning around actually works for all of the above health benefits that I just mentioned.

And… if you still don’t believe me after all that you’ve read,

then I simply challenge you to spin around (as outlined) for -10 days and prove or disprove it to yourself. Not much to  ask it

How I Learned About This

Well, I like to read. I read just about anything and everything when it comes to health, exercise, nutrition, strange things that peak my curiosity, etc.

So how I learned this was by accident… from reading about Sufi Muslims in Turkey who are called “Whirling Dervishes”.

This spinning around thing that they did fascinated me. So I had to know more about “why” they did it. I won’t get

into the religious aspect of it because that’s unnecessary for our purposes, however I will say that they spin around into an ecstatic state of mind as a show of love and a drama of their faith. That is the “why” part.

Since that really doesn’t account for the health benefits, I’ll move along.

But one thing I did notice in researching about Whirling Dervishes was that ALL OF THEM were thin, had

had amazing energy, and were kinda youthful (compared to their actual ages).

So I thought to myself “Hmmmm, ok, what the heck, I’ll spin around and see what the big deal is about”.

So I did it once.

WOW… was that an experience. I nearly knocked over a lamp after spinning around 20 times. I had to just kinda sit and lie down at the same time (if you can picture that) on my couch to normalize myself.

So I rested and felt normal after a few minutes… but, I also felt energized.

I was like “whoa, this is interesting”. The reason being, I exercise often and I feel energized from exercising, however , THIS WAS A DIFFERENT TYPE OF ENERGY that I was feeling.

I had this feeling of a tingling sensation in my head and heart. A lightness. I felt more alive. I felt good! Surprisingly, I was also kinda outta breath too.

Well, it was a 100% success, but with a few bumps along the road.

First the successes…

After 14-17 days they all had more energy, felt better, looked better, lost a few pounds (some more than others), and acted more youthful. Heck, even if they didn’t lose weight, spinning would still be awesome for all of the other health benefits. So I consider the weight loss an extra benefit.

So before I get to the program for spinning, I have to tell you that you only spin 1 way. And that is to your right. Picture yourself standing in the middle of a clock, face-up on the ground.

You want to spin CLOCKWISE, same as the hands on a clock. So your left arm will always be following your right arm when you first start the spinning.

So your arms are out to your sides like airplane wings, outstretched and horizontal to the ground… at shoulder level. Left arm is at 9 o’clock and your right arm is at 3 o’clock.

You begin spinning in a circle (in the same spot). Your right arm starts moving from 3 o’clock to 4 o’clock, and etc. At the same time, your left arm is moving from 9 o’clock to 10 o’clock. Got it?
