Calorie-Burning Fat? Studies Say You Have It


www.nytimes.com

For more than 30 years, scientists have been intrigued by brown fat, a cell that acts like a furnace, consuming calories and generating heat. Rodents, unable to shiver effectively to keep warm, use brown fat instead. So do human infants, who do not shiver very well. But it was generally believed that humans lose brown fat after infancy, no longer needing it once the shivering response kicks in.

That belief, three groups of researchers report, is wrong.

This is very interesting news. The CNN article states that people subjected to 61 degrees showed an activity of brown fat that actually burns calories and produces heat. Could the diet of the future be cold showers or just standing in the cold.....probably not. They will outlaw cold showers and develop a drug that artificially lowers body temp to activate brown fat. Seriously how can big pharma make money off people standing in the cold?

If you were to drink 1 glass of cold water, the body will require 12 Calories to heat that water to body temperature.

This makes complete sense to me. We store fat for survival in hard times.
If we artificially induce the hard times then we can get rid of the fat.

I wonder how many calories a person could burn in a bathtub with really cold water. I bet more than running or jogging. And as previously stated even drinking Ice water is effective.

It all depends on the way your body makes heat . Just think of yourself as a coal furnace. Your calories stored in your fat cells are the coal.

I wonder if keeping the thermostat down in your home would also be effective. If you kept the house at 60 degrees, it would burn more calories to keep your body at around 98.6 F.

Good thread.

brown fat cells.. i was always lead to believe we had them.
many many years ago the talk at the gym was about activating them to burn fat faster.
(who knew?? the muscle heads get something right).

anyway, CLENBUTEROL actives brown fat, raises your body temp & burns 5% more calories at rest. look it up

remember...theres no magic wand, and i doubt your Dr. will give you it

i can just see all the diet freaks now with this information....

watch the rush of news stories of "death by hypothermia"

or "hypothermia the new diet fad"

and then will get a ban on cold water

yes i can see them now Darth.

On the same topic (ish) heres another one... did you also know that eating Protein the body uses 30% of the Calories eaten just to process it.

so 300 Calories of tuna becomes 210 Cals after being eaten, (fact, look it up)

Stay Healthy All

Obesity is one of the leading preventable causes of death worldwide. Large scale American and European studies have found that mortality risk varies with BMI; the lowest risk is found at a BMI of 22.5–25 kg/m2 in non smokers and at a BMI of 24–27 kg/m2 in current smokers and increases with changes in either direction. Obesity increases the risk of death in current and former smokers as well as in those who have never smoked. Brown fat is a good kind of fat. Brown fat is most definitely NOT found in bacon, but rather it most often is seen in infants, although adults still retain a good amount of it. The tissue burns energy in order to create heat and, if properly utilized, burns through sugars and other fatty deposits. It might be worth payday loans to charge it up if your interest is in fighting obesity. The best ways to activate it is actually to keep a little bit on the cold side, exercise and keep on a leaner diet. There isn't a lot of evidence as to whether or not it's an obesity cure, but it's worth giving some installment loans for brown fat.

Interesting. Does that mean that in certain locales within the body there are fat deposits that actually appear brown? Or is the idea that these cells are arbitrary throughout a regular fat deposit?
I've only ever seen human fat to appear bright yellow, and orange in a few cases.
