It’s Easier To Lose Weight In Winter

Cold weather brings its share of unpleasantness, but it also brings an opportunity to lose weight. That, at least, is the verdict of researchers at Kyung Hee University Medical Center in Seoul. The Washington Post  reports on the research, which tracked the weight loss of 3,274 people under 42 years old in Europe, the Americas and Asia with Noom Coach, a fitness app that can pinpoint the location of users. Next, the researchers determined the weather conditions of the those in the study group. Here’s what they found: colder temperatures, lower dew points and higher wind speed and precipitation were all linked to weight loss. The Post also reports that other studies that examined the molecular breakdown of fat have found that spending time in the cold can boost calorie burn by up to 30 percent.
