Instead of obsessing with fad diets and intense exercise to lose weight, here’s an idea that can help you get there without moving an inch.
Scientist have recently discovered that temperatures can have an effect on how many calories you burn – sounds too good to be true, right?
Apparently, being cold is a ‘cheap way to get slim’ .
Evidence collected in a study by Dutch scientists showed that cold temperatures can hugely increase the amount of calories burned up rather than storing them as fat.
Commenting on the findings, the study’s lead researcher said “We hypothesise that the thermal environment affects human health and more specifically that frequent mild cold exposure can significantly affect our energy expenditure over sustained time periods.”
So what does all that science-talk mean?
It means, turn down the heating and shiver those calories away.
