A Dutch research team are suggesting that being a little bit colder might help people lose weight. The idea is that you burn energy when you're cold in order to keep warm.
Great, I thought, turning the thermostat down, pizza for dinner! Some people eat more when it's cold, and these extra calories are probably more than they use up in making body heat.
To be honest I think chasing quick fixes for losing weight will never work. Eating light food and getting some exercise works for me.
