How to Boost Weight Loss With Cold Showers
With worldwide obesity levels growing--and reaching epidemic levels here in the U.S.--fad diets often come and go. Most of these diets are basically the same: they work (or don't) through some combination of calorie restriction and exercise. In other words, reduced intake and increased output. But science has discovered that may not be all there is to it.
The human body is an open thermodynamic system--that means it can use, store, or lose energy in a number of ways, not just through calorie restriction. This was the topic of a collaborative study by two European Universities on the effects of cold induced adaptive thermogenesis on adipose storage in humans. In English: Can taking cold showers help burn excess body fat?
Scientists knew cold exposure raised energy output in all mammals, including humans. In small animals cold was known to activate brown fat (heat-burning fat) causing white fat (inactive fat) to dissipate. In the end, researchers proved brown fat exists in humans in very small amounts around the neck and shoulders and can be activated with cold exposure as an alternative therapy in the treatment of obesity.
