Cool Down Your Home
By cooling down your home by a few degrees, your body will naturally have to adjust to generating heat by burning more brown fat. When more brown fat is burned, white fat gets recruited and turned into brown fat for more storage. This is good, and not bad in the long run when looking to lose weight! I am not saying to turn off your heat in the middle of winter, so be careful how low you go for the scare of frozen pipes, and other headaches like that. But do be aware of how high your thermostat is set in your home, as the body is smart and needs to generate heat naturally somehow!
The Telegraph wrote a brilliant article about burning body fat with cooler temperatures and said, “Experts claim that because we spend so much of our time indoors, often in overheated homes and offices, are bodies do not naturally burn calories to keep warm.” (2).back to menu ↑
You don’t have to keep your home at 61 degrees Fahrenheit all the time, but a few hours a day is recommended to rev up your metabolic rate every single day without having to even think about it! If you are worried about your heating bill going up and down thus costing you more money each month, lower your Thermostat to something manageable yet still chilled and keep it there until you feel like elevating it once again. There is nothing wrong with a little experiment in your home to make you feel more rejuvenated refreshed each day!
