I am going to let you in on a little secret. Most of think that getting hot and working up a sweat is what will help us burn the most fat. But recently, scientist have discovered that the human body burns much more fat when it is cold. When you body is cold, it has to burn a lot of fat and calories In order to stay at 98 degrees (98.6 °F or 37.0 °C). If you can get your body cold enough, it will burn more fat faster that exercise and diet can alone.
On a TEDTalk video in 2010, NASA scientist Ray Cronise discussed how to lose weight by exposing the body to cold temperatures. Ray went from 1.5 pounds of fat loss per week to 4.5 pounds of fat loss per week after simply adding cold to his weight loss regiment. Cold exposure helped him lose 30 pounds in only 6 weeks!
As is referenced in Ray’s talk, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps diet consists of approximately 12,000 calories per day (holly shit!). The only logical way he could burn this many calories is through swimming in very cold water. It should also be noted that many other elite athletes have begun to exercise at cold temperatures
Here are some ways that you can ad cold exposure in order to burn more fat faster.
- Drink a liter of ice cold water first thing in the morning . When you consume something cold (such as ice water), your body must temporarily increase the rate at which you burn calories in order to keep you warm or to warm whatever cold substance that you ingested.
- Take Cold Baths or Showers. I started taking Ice baths recently, no only do they increase fat loss, but Ice baths also naturally increase testosterone levels!!!! This first time I tried ice baths, I used a real bag of ice. Now I use reusable ice packs! they stay colder longer, and they are a lot more fiscally conservative.
- Workout in the cold. I really like to workout in the cold. it makes me work harder because I want to stay warm. Here is an example
If you really want to burn fat fast, you will also want to
- Follow a good diet plan (in the new episode of our comedy podcast, I talk about why i DO NOT eat organic food)
- Drink Plenty of Water Each Day
- Get enough sleep each night
- Do HIIT cardio

(Some of people questioned if Michael’s pics are “real” because his tattoo is on the other arm in the 2ed pic. it is because he took the pic in the mirror. I don’t want to get into the “science” of that, but if I take a pic of my reflection, my tattoos with switch sides too. LMAO!)
IF your REALLY ready to take your body to the next level, make sure your on total body routine and diet plan!!! (you get both in my FULL workout plan). It may also help to try a good fat burner like TEA REXX, it is what I use to help me stay ripped.
