  1. Yes I have lost by doing kapalbhati.Amount mainly depends on person to person and metabolism but it is very fast compared to other methods.You can lose a kg even just two days if u do 15 min of it twice a day.
    Don’t do it continuously, have one minute break every 5 min(300*3 times-total 900times).Include one or two other pranayams,40min brisk walk and drink lot of water to feel the difference.Follow this for a month and you will surely lose minimum of 3-4 kgs.

  2. How to Practice:- It Should be practiced empty stomach or 2-3 hours after meal. one should sit in padmasana, sukhasana or siddhasna and those who are unable to sit they can perform it on chair, keeping the spine straight and body firm.
    Precaution : heart patients and high BP patients and weak people should do it slowly.Pregnant women should not do this pranayama.
    How to do : exert air forcefully out. Stomach will go in automatically.
    dominant inhalation through nostrils which results contraction of abdominal muscles and proper aeration to blood circulation.
    So in Kapalbhati more attention is to be given on act of forceful exhalation while the inhalation is passive, Silent and short, during abdominal contraction force is applied to the Manipura, Swadhisthan and muladhar chakra.
    Duration : Initially Starts with 30 times or for 1 minute and increase it upto 5 mins mininimum, maximum upto 10 minutes.Healthy person can practice it 10-15 minutes regularly. Patients with obesity, Vitiligo, leukaemias, breast carcinoma, Fallopian tube blockage, hepatitis etc. should practice it 20 minutes to half hour twice daily.

  3. It depends on person to person and metabolism but it is not the fastest way to lose weight compared to other methods!
    if you really want to lose wight and fat then you should remember and do this:
    1) if you dint have then buy scales!!! that is the first thing to do!!
    2) run every 2 days for at least ~30 minutes or/and walk every day at least 5 km!
    3) L-Carnitine!!!
    L-Carnitine is a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy. It is produced by the body in the liver and kidneys and stored in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm. Usually, the body can make all the carnitine it needs. Some people, however, may be deficient in carnitine because their bodies cannot make enough carnitine or transport it into tissues so it can be used. Some other conditions, such as angina or intermittent claudication, can also cause insufficient carnitine in the body, as can some medications.L-Carnitine is made in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. It increases the use of fat as an energy source by transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are ‘burned’ to release energy for body functions. It is available in several different forms including propionyl-L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine. Propionyl-L-carnitine, through its enhancement of metabolism has been proven to prevent ischemia-induced heart dysfunction, and acetyl-L-carnitine has been suggested to delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. L-carnitine is found naturally in avocados, breast milk, dairy products, red meats (namely lamb and beef), and tempeh (fermented soybean product).
    L-carnitine should be taken one hour before you will exercise! (Also you can take L-carnitine with meals or 1 to 1-1/2 hours after meals!)
    L-Carnitine boosts energy by stimulating the body’s burning of tryglycerides as fuel, and sparing the supply of glycogen stored in the liver for heavier exertion. During exercise, the body will burn fat at a rate of 75-80% of maximum exertion, thus less glycogen from carbohydrates is burned. L-carnitine
    allows the body to burn more fat, save more glycogen, and ultimately boost stamina and endurance. By providing more fat to the muscles, carnitine makes accessible an otherwise unavailable energy source.
    5) you MUST change your diet!! start to use products with less fat, less carbohydrates! start count your calories! do not eat more than ~2000 per day and if you feel that you can reduce this number then do it!
    because if you will use L-Carnitine – you will get calories from your body fat too!! so better is to eat 2kg fruits then 1 cheeseburger…
    and drink more and more water!! REMEMBER – NO rice, NO pasta, NO pork, NO mayonnaise, NO sweets, NO candies, NO alcohol!!!!!
    MORE fruits, vegetables!!!
    6) also you should use some fat-burner! I had tried many of them but only one worked for me as fast as I wanted to! it was Lipo-6! I lost ~80 pounds in 3 months! No starvation!! only LESS CALORIES + Lipo-6 + L-Carnitine + EVERYDAY RUN (WALK) = SUCCESS!!!
    I do not know if any store carry Lipo-6 but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.healthbuy.com/product/overview/lipo6_weight_loss/?aid=749165
    It worked for me and my wife!
    and this method is working for my friends too!!
    just try it and I guarantee you 100% that you will lose wight!!!
    good luck!!!
