Exercise and the weather

Postby Angel » Sun Feb 19, 2006 4:44 pm

Saw this in last week's Body and Soul so I thought I'd share:

Question: Are more kilojoules burned when you exercise in warm weather?

Answer: No, it's actually cold weather that is thought to be more conducive to fat loss. The reason is that it takes less energy for the body to cool itself (heat) than it does to maintain body heat (cold).

Great motivation for when winter comes along. . . . . .

But that doesn't explain why many people losing weight in the US states, rug up and wear jumpers and sweaters in hot weather to increase their heart rate so they can make the weight fall off.

Interesting to know though, thanks for the info.

Yeh, I always thought it would be the other way round, sounds like so do the people in US.

The question was answered by Damien Kelly who is a qualified exercise physiologist, you would hope he knows his stuff . . . . .

I know when I was seeing the Naturopath that she said to drink water at room temperature rather than out of the fridge, this was because the body uses valuable energy (for those suffering CFS) to warm up the water as it goes through the system.

Shrug - Who knows!

Yep, my naturopath told me to have all my drinks unchilled too. I did that for a couple of years then went back to guzzling icy cold drinks (I'm so bad)

Hi Girls....

My sister in law is a naturapath and she agrees drinking chilly water is a no no.

I guess her biggest piece of advice to me was unless I delt with unresoved emotions from my past my weight loss would never be permenant and I believe this to be true.

Another thing she told me was to stay away from milk products totally and caffiene of course as it can lead to many illnesses.

Cheers! :)

I think theres so many theories it can get confusing hey!! wearing thick jumpers in summer would cause you to sweat and loose water and fliud, but I doubt fat right?

I heard drink chilled water to help burn extra calories.

I prefer warm water anyway LOL.
