Are your THERMOSTAT and your slippers making you chubby? According to a new study out of the Netherlands, the COLD is good for weight loss . . . because your body has to use more energy to keep your core temperature up.
In fact, the researchers say furnaces could be partially responsible for people getting LARGER. Ever since we've been able to keep the temperature up, our weight has been going up.
You could try to use this to your advantage if you want to lose weight . . . take cold showers and ice baths, keep your office temperature freezing, run around topless during the next polar vortex, whatever. (LiveScience)
