do you think you lose more weight if..

you sit in a cold room all day?

The body will be using up more energy trying to keep you warm.

I might bring out a new book, "The Refrigeration Diet". Women across the country will be pissing off everyone in their office by turning the air conditioning up to 11.

If you drink very cold water on a regular basis you lose weight because the body uses calories bringing it up to body temp - so the answer is yes.

Sounds like a good idea for a book..First turn all the heaters off.The end..Save loads on paper

But doesn't the body lose more weight by sweating when it's hot?

yes but the metabolism slows so you burn less fat.

I'm writing a book as well which I hope will make me lots of money.

Feng Shui for the homeless.

I have a wacky idea too.

Eat less, excercise more.

I know, lazy b'stards.

Ok, how about if I cut you open and still a vacuum cleaner in the hole and suck out your fat?

Now I'm being rediculous. Who would ever be that stupid?

While all these idea sound "scientific", they are actually b@llocks.

Escalators that change direction at random intervals is the way to go. You have the combination of sometimes having to walk against the flow, and increased nervous and muscle tension as you antipate being thrown off your feet.

Or lace every third Big Mac with tapeworm eggs.

Not sure this would work, the drinking cold water works as you cool the body's core down and the body works harder to regulate the core temperature. Sitting in a cold room would just mean that the core of the body would stay warm, extremities would stay cold and you would stay fat!... i think anyway, DON'T quote me!
