Have you ever tried keeping your home cooler to help lose weight?
Saturday, January 25, 2014
There was an article this morning on Spark people titled "Can the Polar Vortex Help you lose weight" I had to read it since we are in the grip of the PV right now. It referred to an article which suggested that keeping your environment cooler CAN help you lose weight. It makes sense. Actually, this is old news and I had read about it awhile ago and actually tried it for awhile. I was aided in my research by a cheap husband who loves to turn down the thermostat and waits until Nov. to light the pilot light. I found exactly the opposite - when my house is too cold I don't want to do anything - I mostly feel like sitting bundled up. Now I make a conscious effort to keep my house at a comfortable temp because I know it helps me keep more active. I'm curious if anyone else is affected by the temp in their house? and which way?
