Diet Discovery: Stress Helps You Burn Calories
- Healthy brown fat
- The stress diet: new way to burn calories
- Scientists discovered that white fat can be turned into brown fat which burns up more calories
- Up until recently, it was believed that being exposed to cold temperatures is the only factor that can activate brown fat in people
To cut it short
A healthy lifestyle accompanied with regular exercise is the best way to lose weight. There are no two ways about it. However, a recent study reveals that if the white, bulging fat that hangs on to your thighs and belly is converted into brown fat, the body loses calories faster. It also helps to combat cholesterol and diabetes. Nice! But the stipulation works only in high stress situations such as burning or freezing. While scientists are looking at medical substitutes in the form of drugs that can ape the effects of prolonged stress to get the same results, we don’t quite like the idea of experiencing stress just to shed some kilos!Do you?
