How to use Temperature Extremes to Maximize Fat Burning Freeze Fat, Melt Fat or both?

Researchers recently uncovered two separate bodies of evidence proving that exposure to temperature extremes, both heat and cold, boosts fat and calorie burn.  Your choice? Read, than decide.

Shower like a Polar Bear and Freeze Away the Fat

Want to burn fat fast without exercise?  

Try this.  Wake yourself up in the morning with a cold shower.  

Put your Brown Fat to Work

It works this way.  We all have white fat and brown fat.  White fat is regular fat. Brown fat is different.  The primary function of brown fat is to generate heat and when it does, it burns a whole lot of white fat (regular fat) and calories.  Studies done to examine the fat burning potential of brown fat have proven that exposure to cold water increases both fat and calorie burning.  Add to that the benefits of shivering. Shivering burns calories, increases your metabolic rate and also produces brown fat activity.

The Polar Bear Shower

The polar bear shower idea requires you to take a cold shower for at least 30 seconds and let the cold water continuously run over your shoulders, neck and back (where brown fat is located in our bodies).  Caution not to exceed the 30 seconds of exposure. Taking lengthy cold showers can be dangerous.

Want to start the day increasing your fat burning?  Take a short cold shower.

The ‘Hot’ Secret to Losing Weight while Sitting

The Infrared Sauna ranks as one of the ‘hottest’ weight loss treatment available.  That’s due, in part, to the simple fact that no one likes to be deprived of pleasure – even when wanting to burn calories and lose weight.  Infrared saunas offer a long list of benefits, including revved up calorie burning and easy weight loss.

Lose weight with Infrared Sauna

Sitting or lounging in a specialized infrared sauna feels one hundred percent relaxing and indulgent, yet one 45 minute session produces a 200 – 900 calorie burn.  Check this out. Recent research conducted by Binghamtom University found that patients who spent 45 minutes in an infrared sauna three times a week lost four percent body fat in just sixteen weeks – without diet or exercise.  Burning calories while you’re totally relaxing beats crowded gyms and crazy diets hands down.

Infrared Saunas emit energy which your body absorbs.  This energy raises your body core temperature by 2 – 3 degrees, which increases your metabolic rate and calorie burn and ultimately leads to weight loss.  

Feel ‘high on life’ with Infrared Sauna

Infrared Sauna sessions offer mental perks too.  Infrared energy triggers your brain’s ‘feel good’ chemicals , endorphins and serotonin, giving you a natural high.  The sessions leave you feeling buzzed and soon-to-be svelte.  You’ll feel relaxed and invigorated, re-energized and focused.    

Want to lose weight without sacrifice?  Simply commit to weekly Infrared Sauna sessions to burn calories and lose pounds.
