According to a new study out of the University of Sydney in Australia, apparently shivering for 10 to 15 minutes burns as many calories as an hour of exercise. For real?
Their research says that being cold and working out both produce something in your body called "brown fat" (sounds yummy) which is a good kind of fat that burns calories. Who knew?
A few weeks ago, a study out of the Netherlands also found that working in the cold can raise your metabolism.
Soooo go outside for 15 mins and eat a salad. You're all set haha.
