Belly fat is the worst enemy and the biggest problem to many people especially women. The belly fat looks bad on our body, but that is not all. It also raises the risk of heart diseases, diabetes and other health issues.
There are two types of fats: White and brown
White fat is thinner and it is located around the stomach, hands and thighs. It has a role of a thermic isolator which maintains body temperature.
Brown fat has functions to burns calories to warm up the body and to maintain thermoregulation.
A recent study showed that exposing the fat cells to cold, helps eliminate them.
This is the reason why scientists recommend lowering the temperature of our homes for a few hours during the winter period.
Also you should know that the fatty layer around the abdomen and thighs turns brown in winter, meaning that cold stimulates the transformation of white fats to be brown, therefore, making the fat easier to burn.
So you should lower the temperature of homes from 21 degrees to 17-15 during the night and it makes our body burn calories for maintaining a proper body temperature.
There is another study which showed how temperature can affected on the participant’s health.In this study a group of participants were sleeping in a metabolic room of 18 degrees. After spending a month under these conditions, the amount of brown fat in their bodies had doubled, while also increasing their insulin sensitivity.
This treatment is called “Cold Thermogenesis”
Moderate Cold Thermogenesis consists of sitting in a 10-15 degrees room wearing summer clothes.
Intensive Cold Thermogenesis consists of wearing sweaters and jeans filled with ice. This causes even more tremor and fat burning.
Therapy for fast burning of calories
Tim Ferris has a own book “Four-hour Body”where describes the concept of burning brown fat layer by exposing it to low temperatures. Tim think that the potential of burning fats can be increased up to 300% by implementing an ice therapy, aside from healthy diet and exercise.
Interesting fact is that 90 grams brown fat layer can burn around 500 calories a day witch is the same as exercising intensively for 1 hour.
Freezing the layer of fat in specific body parts:
Do you believe that your fat can burn by applied cold layers on specific parts from the body for 30-60 minutes. With this process you will stimulate the process of transforming white fat layers into brown and therefore, burning weight. The results are even better if this treatment is combined with healthy diet and exercise.
This method cools down the skin and causes the fat layers to be flushed out of the body.
How to use cold layers
You should wrap the ice in a towel and then put it on the part from the body where you have a fat. You need to hold the ice for 30-60 minutes. For the visible results repeat this treatment 1-2 times a day for 12 days straight.
Unfortunately this treatment has one bad side. The only bad sides are frosted. You must be extremely careful when using ice and cold layers. During the treatment, you should check the skin every few minutes to prevent a frost from appearing.
Symptoms of frost are:
- Redness and pain
- Losing the feeling of touch
In case you notice any of these symptoms please do not warm up or massage that parts. You only need to use a blanket to slowly warm it up.
Note: People who use beta-blockers and also people who have periphery vascular illnesses, smokers, diabetics should be extremely careful with this treatment.
