Finally, Some Good News About Winter

Ever get that feeling that just because you’re hot and sweaty that must mean you’re burning more calories? Well, it turns out the opposite is true. When the outside temperature is cold, our bodies need to work harder to maintain a warm internal temperature. That requires more energy, and therefore, burns more calories. In fact, being exposed to cold temperatures can raise your basal metabolic rate by up to 30%! So don’t hibernate in front of the fireplace this winter, get outside and go for a walk! It’s good for your waist line in more ways than one!
