Yes, we all sweat more when it’s hot outside. But did you know that we also burn more calories compared to the colder months? Here’s why.
Some of us welcome the colder months with open arms, knowing that our body burns more calories during the winter to stay warm. But now we know it’s kind of the same during the warmer months.
Thanks to Better life, who unearthed an old man Spanish study 2010, we know it’s not our imagination the same way we get more sweat when we exercise during the summer. The study, published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolismm, found that cyclists who exercised at 104 degrees burned more fat and increased muscle more than those who did the same exercise at the same intensity at 68 degrees. Don’t you say that?
“Given that exercise already raises body temperature, the body also burns more calories as it tries to cool the body temperature with extreme heat, a process known as thermoregulation. An average person’s body temperature fluctuates. between 98 ° F and 100 ° F, which is a fairly narrow window.If it falls below 95 ° F, you may suffer from hypothermia.If it exceeds 107.6 ° F, you could suffer brain damage or “When you raise your body temperature with extreme heat, your body has to work harder to achieve homeostasis.”
And of course, if you don’t stay hydrated, exercising in the heat can be dangerous for your help, causing dizziness, nausea, and even fainting. So if you decide to sweat it with the heat of summer, be sure to take care of yourself. You may want to look killer with a bikini, but your body just wants to be healthy.
