Cold Thermogenesis: How Winter Can Help You Lose Weight

Did you know that taking a cold shower, swimming in a chilly lake and playing in the snow can have some incredible weight-loss benefits? You've heard right! When you're exposed to cold temperatures, your body speeds up metabolic processes, such as fat burning, calorie expenditure, and metabolism. This process is also known as cold thermogenesis.

Cold Thermogenesis: How Winter Can Help You Lose Weight

How does cold thermogenesis work?

Let's start with some basics of cold thermogenesis.

Thermogenesis is a process in which your body produces heat. The main role of thermogenesis is to keep you warm when you’re exposed to cool temperatures. The mechanism is very simple. To produce heat, your body stimulates the metabolism and burns calories and fat.

And the best part? While you’re in thermogenesis, you are shedding kilos without even feeling it! And yes, this includes stubborn belly fat.

The role of white and brown fat

To understand thermogenesis, it’s essential to understand the role of white and brown fat.

You’re probably familiar with white fat. Having some white fat is good for us, because it protects our internal organs. However, the extra fat tends to accumulate around stubborn areas like the belly, hips and waist. That's why you need to target white fat when you want to slim down and shape your figure.

Brown fat is a whole different story. Having more brown fat is good for you because brown fat is responsible for thermogenesis.

This means you have to stimulate brown fat to claim all the benefits of thermogenesis, including:

  • Increased metabolism
  • Speedy digestion
  • Boosted energy
  • Reduced fat cell growth
  • Effective fat burning (including belly fat burning)
  • Curbed cravings - perfect for emotional eaters and sweet toothers

What are the other benefits?

Many athletes and celebrities swear by cold therapy. It’s their sacred wellness routine. No wonder – it offers numerous benefits for your body and mind:

  • Instant Energy Burst

Ever tried jumping into a cold river and immediately felt brand new? Boosted energy, alongside reduced anxiety, depression and stress, are well-researched benefits of cold exposure. You can use this knowledge to your advantage – try taking a cold shower whenever you feel tired or sluggish.

  • Healthy and Young Brain

Cold exposure protects the brain from degradation and allows it to form new connections. In the long run, it can prevent cognitive decline, memory loss, and diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. This means that your brain can stay younger, longer.

  • Crazy Immunity Boost

Cold thermogenesis also boosts your immune system by decreasing inflammation and speeding up the body’s natural healing process. This means that you’re less likely to catch a seasonal cold or stomach flu.

  • Deep and Restful Sleep

Do you know the phrase “sleep like a baby”? After cold therapy, you definitely will. Not only will you fall asleep faster, but you will also sleep deeper and wake up feeling refreshed.

  • Superwoman’s Recovery

Many elite athletes soak in ice baths to speed up workout recovery and reduce muscle soreness. Try taking a cold shower after hitting the gym to elevate your results.

  • Bye, Bye Belly Fat

During cold thermogenesis, important fat-burning hormones are stimulated. That’s why thermogenesis is especially great for stubborn belly fat burning. Even better news? Hip dips are included!

How can you stimulate cold thermogenesis?

1. Take a Cold Shower

Cold showers are great activators of thermogenesis. If you’re a beginner, start with warm water and slowly progress to cold water. We recommend that you first splash the lower body, and slowly proceed upward.

2. Splash Your Face with Cold Water

Not ready to give up steaming hot showers just yet? Splashing your face with cold water will do the trick! Stimulating cold thermogenesis is the perfect way to kickstart your morning.

3. Spend time Outdoors

We all want to stay wrapped up, under the blanket, sipping something hot during cold weather. However, winter is an amazing natural stimulant of thermogenesis. Take a walk in nature or a stroll around the city centre.

4. Turn down the heating before bed

Sleeping in a cooler room will activate thermogenesis, making you burn fat while catching the Z’s. Effortless, easy and healthy. Sounds great to us!

5. Add Thermogenic Foods to Your Diet

Thermogenic foods, like cayenne paper, ginger and green tea, can kickstart thermogenesis from within. After eating such ingredients, your body burns calories and fat long after you’ve finished the meal. And the best part is that thermogenic foods are generally healthy!

6. Try a Thermogenic Fat Burner

Let’s be honest. We don’t always have time to spend long hours outside. We’re also not always in the mood for cold showers. That’s where thermogenic fat burners, like our Belly Shaper, come into play.

Belly Shaper capsules give you all the thermogenic benefits whilst requiring much less effort. Each capsule immediately activates the thermogenesis from the inside out. Therefore, you burn stubborn belly fat and fat deposits around the waist and hips without even feeling it.

Let's take a closer look at Belly Shaper’s ingredients:

  • Morosil® is patented blood orange extract, which can decrease waist size (up to 7.5* cm), hip size (up to 6* cm) and reduce abdominal fat (up to 50%*).
  • MaxiTherm® is a superior-grade cayenne pepper which helps you harness all the weight-loss benefits of thermogenesis.
  • Green tea supports metabolism and natural thermogenic activity.
  • Black pepper supports the formula's effectiveness and helps with digestion and weight control.
  • Vitamin B6 helps to convert food into energy and reduces tiredness and fatigue.

Bottom line

Next time you’re “cursing” the winter and cold temperatures, remember that cold thermogenesis offers some amazing health and weight-loss benefits. So, try taking cold showers, supplementing with Belly Shaper, or by simply getting out and making some snow angels. The most important thing is to keep it fun and comfortable. And who knows … you might even start enjoying the winter!

Disclaimer: Please use these tips wisely. Thermogenesis doesn’t include shivering and blue lips. Rather, it’s a way to build up your immune system, and slim down along the way. Correctly done, cold thermogenesis is one of the healthiest slimming techniques out there.
