Shivering is a workout!

Do do this at home… because shivering is a workout.

There is evidence that shivering in the cold may result in staying healthy and losing weight.

I know. Sounds crazy.  It’s a fun fact.

Researchers have found this motion of shivering can burn calories as if you were working out for an hour.  We’re talking about moderate exercise equivalence, but still, exercise.

 

The science behind it is that the hormones Irisin and FBF21 are activated from the muscles.

 

This is not in substitution to your exercise, just a fun conversation starter when you’re on that trendmill.

Embrace a healthier lifestyle with or without the help of Bariatric procedures.  Keep is safe and regulated in order to get to your goal weights.
