How Many Calories Does Shivering Burn?

So – the groundhog saw his shadow and we are in for another 6 weeks of winter. But rather than be sad about the cold, you should be happy because all that shivering you will do could help you lose weight! How many calories does shivering burn?

You won’t burn enough calories to look like the latest winner of The Biggest Loser, but according to a new study, just shivering in the cold for about 10-15 minutes will burn the same amount of calories as you would burn doing an hour of moderate exercise! This is great news if you have fallen off your new years resolution band wagon to lose weight. You can burn calories just going to your car or getting the mail!

There is a problem though. Since it is so cold out – we stay in our houses and sit around eating…which I’m sure more than cancels out any calories you burned getting the mail.

Another study also found that just working in the cold amps up your metabolism!
