Lose or Gain Weight with the Cold

Hello and Happy Cold Spell!

As the temperature drops, there is both a fat-related risk and opportunity:

  • Being chilly can boost your metabolism. In fact, some weight loss experts say that lowering your thermostat is a way to lose a few extra pounds.

BUT

  • Being too cold can lead you to overeat without realizing it. Some studies have shown people eating 30% more calories after swimming in a cold pool versus a warm one. An extra 30% adds up fast!

So pay attention to your eating habits, keep a sweater on hand, stay warm with physical activity and fill up on hot tea or brothy soup when your appetite starts going “Wisconsin” on you.

Have a good week!
