Simply strapping an ice-pack to a fatty area like the thighs or stomach for just 30 minutes can burn away hard-to-shift calories.
The cold compress works by triggering the body into turning flabby white fat into calorie burning ‘beige’ fat.
The article goes on to suggest that we should lower the temperatures inside our homes in order to encourage fat loss. I find this claim to be rather interesting. We do stay indoors more and more in these modern times and we certainly tend to heat our homes more, especially when we compare our lives to previous generations. Could our obesity problem be rooted in the temperature we keep our homes? It certainly seems too easy/simple to be true but this study is certainly interesting.
