Take a COLD Shower

Supercharge Your Metabolism: 5-Minute Deep Freeze

By taking a cold shower anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes, you can jumpstart your metabolism. That’s because cold temperature activates brown fat, the fat-burning fat tissue in your body that burns energy to keep you warm. When taking a cold shower, you may experience some shivering, which indicates that you’re using energy to keep your body temperature up.

Try taking a quick shower in the morning or night. Start with 2 minutes of warm water to get your body temperature up, then switch to cold and work toward keeping the water temperature under 60 degrees. Over time, your body will become less sensitive to this drop in temperature. Happy Freezing!

Questions:

1. What do you think, is it worth a try?

Not for me, I can’t stand to feel cold, the main reason I get in the shower is to warm up. Another advantage to a cold shower is it’s alot less harsh on your skin then a hot one.
