Let’s start with the issue you and I are trying to solve:
Obesity is a horrible problem, in part, because it massively increases your risk for many different health conditions. Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, organ problems, depression, are all examples of such conditions (1; 2; 3).
And you know what?
The obesity problem is also getting bigger and bigger every year (4; 5).
Just think about it: how different do people look today compared to 10 or 20 years ago? When I was in high school 20 years ago, almost no-one was obese. Today that story is radically different.
Also, don’t get me started on the obesity epidemic in adults…
Improving your ability to burn body fat, in turn, is essential for preventing obesity.
With the obesity problem today, you need all the help you can get!
Don’t get me wrong though: just losing weight if you're overweight is not enough: you want to keep the weight off permanently. Forever. And it's precisely keeping the weight off that's almost impossible for many people (6; 7; 8).
So even after losing weight, most people regain their losses over time (and more!). As an analogy, that rebounding in weight is like improving your household budget first and then going bankrupt.
And what if you’re already lean? Well, even if you’re ripped you probably never think you’re lean enough!
Hence, no matter what your background, anyone can profit form a (sustainable) fat loss method...
One reason most people fail in their fat loss efforts is that they don't take the effect that their environment has into account.
How The Light In Your Environment Affects Fat Loss
The light in your environment has massive effects on your ability to lose fat.
If you're exposed to light at the wrong times of the day, your ability to lose fat is horribly impeded. People who are exposed to lots of artificial light at night, for instance, have increased body mass and a far worse metabolic profile (9; 10; 11).
Essentially, as a human being, you need darkness at night and light exposure (preferably from the sun) during the day. Any time you break that rule, your efforts to maintain a healthy body weight are impeded.
You may think: "well, but what does that data have to do with red light therapy?"
Red light therapy supplements that light exposure during the day.
Remember that many people don't even have a regular opportunity to expose their eyes and skin to sunlight.
In fact, most people work in office buildings and have no ability to expose themselves to sufficient sunlight at daytime.
That inability to get sufficient sunlight exposure is where red light therapy comes in: red light therapy allows you to supplement sunlight and gain many of its benefits from the comfort of your home.
Now, to be 100% honest:
Red light therapy won't give you all benefits of sunlight exposure. One example is vitamin D creation which is not supplied by red light therapy. But on the other hand, red light therapy may also have benefits that you cannot get from the sun.
Red light therapy can be used anywhere, any time, and may have advantages for energy-production that you cannot get from the sun.
