Going for a walk in the cold after a meal could help people lose weight as low temperatures prompt the body to burn calories, research suggests. 

walking_533Controlling obesity is a crucial, currently  it is the root cause of many health problems. The Scientist are working continuesly to find the effective way to combat the obesity. As a result of such attempt the researchers had come out with another natural way to lose weight. New study findings suggest that Going for a walk after eating could help to lose weight. 

As reported in  The Telegraph , the scientist say that brown fat, a 'good' fat which burns calories to generate heat, is activated by the cold.
It was known that it could be activated by exposure to cold, in a process called non-shivering thermogenesis. But how to activate brown fat on cue has puzzled scientists, reports the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science US

A team for Joslin Diabetes Center were working to see if the drug ephedrine could be used as a trigger. And while they conclude that it cannot, their work has opened the door to more research into how cold, or agents which mimic the effects of cold, could be used to fight obesity.

Dr Aaron Cypess said: "We propose that agents that work similarly to cold in activating brown fat specifically can provide promising approaches to fighting obesity while minimizing other side effects.
"At the same time, we now know that ephedrine is not the way to do it."

For the study, the team gave participants injections of either ephedrine or a control saline solution and asked them to wear 'cooling vests' with water at 57 F pumped into them.Their fat activity was then measured.
Researchers found that brown fat was the same following both the ephedrine and saline injections.
However, after the subjects wore the cooling vests for two hours, their brown fat activity was stimulated significantly.

Researchers’ view
Both interventions - ephedrine injections and the wearing of the cooling vests - did result in the same number of calories being burned, Dr. Cypess noted.
He said: "But we found that ephedrine was not using brown fat to do it. "This is the first time it has been found that ephedrine does not turn on brown fat."

Both methods had effects of the sympathetic nervous system -- which activates the fight or flight response -- such as increased blood pressure. But only the cold activated brown fat. Dr Cypess said harnessing the cold effects could help reduce calories without the side effects associated with ephedrine. He said: "Mild cold exposure stimulates (brown fat) energy expenditure with fewer other systemic effects, suggesting that cold activates specific sympathetic pathways.

"Agents that mimic cold activation of (brown fat) could provide a promising approach to treating obesity while minimizing systemic effects."
One method may be simply to design cooling vests that people can wear to help them lose weight.
A future study will have subjects wear the vests for several weeks to see what happens, Dr. Cypess said.
He said: "Will they get the same health benefits they would have seen with several weeks of exercise? That's the billion dollar question."

    Yes this does work, I have done that for years and since December, I have not been walking as much because I would walk my dog 4 to 6 times a day and some days more, in December he died and now, I just do not walk like I did and I did notice a weight gain, so I started walking and taking a new nutrition product called Juice Plus and wow , it gives me so much energy that I am walking more than I did with my dog.
