Cold Weather Could Help You Lose Weight?
Are your THERMOSTAT and your slippers making you chubby? According to a new study out of the Netherlands, the COLD is good for weight loss . . . because your body has to use more energy to keep your core temperature up.

You could try to use this to your advantage if you want to lose weight . . . take cold showers and ice baths, keep your office temperature freezing, run around topless during the next polar vortex, whatever. (LiveScience)
