How Chilly Temperatures Might Promote Weight Loss

Is winter getting you down? The cold temperatures might just be keeping your weight down, too.

HLN reported that a study found mildly cold temperatures activate brown fat in the body. Brown fat then uses energy from food stored in white fat to warm up the body, in turn burning calories.

To encourage this potential weight loss at home, you can set your thermostat at 70 degrees and lower it about 2 degrees each day - just don't go so low that you start shivering!
