I wouldn’t say I’m entirely sold on the idea as yet but it is intriguing:
It could be a really cool way to lose weight.
Researchers say that cosy, centrally heated bedrooms may be making us fat – meaning losing weight could be as simple as turning down the radiator.
Something as simple as sleeping in a cool room for a month could make major difference, a US medical conference heard.
It’s the “brown fat” idea again.
And, OK, more proof needed etc. But it does have the joy of explaining something. Which is that the obesity “crisis” does seem to have fanned out over the world in conjunction with people actually being able to heat their bedrooms.
