Doing THIS For 10 Minutes Burns As Many Calories As Working Out For An HOUR!

 I GUESS this is good news for a lot of the country . . . just trying to find the bright side since a lot of us are getting HAMMERED by winter.

 

According to a new study out of the University of Sydney in Australia, SHIVERING for 10 to 15 minutes burns as many calories as an HOUR of moderate exercise.

 

They found that being cold and working out both produce something in your body called "brown fat" . . . which is a good kind of fat that burns calories.

 

This is just the latest study to find a connection between being cold and losing weight.  A few weeks ago, a study out of the Netherlands also found that working in the cold can raise your metabolism.
