    So ladies, I read an article in Womens Health about Calories and small weighs to burn more calories!! This one I am about to share I thought was pretty neat!

    The temperature of your home can affect how many calories you lose or dont!
    During the summer if you keep your A/C at a comfty 75 degrees, turn it down a bit to 78!!!
    If during the winter you keep your Heat at a comfy 75, turn it down to 72!!
    Changing the temperature in your home to a non so comfy temp can actually help youto lose about 20 calories a day!! Because your body is working harder to keep its self warmer or colder!! And adding a workout is a plus and increase the amount of calories you could burn!!!!!!! I thougt this was pretty cool way to burn calories and save on your energy bill! lol https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_sunny.gif https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_compress.gif

    Sorry but 20 calories a day will not make a single bit of difference in weight loss at all.

    Also…you need to burn 3500 MORE calories than you consume to lose even 1 pound…changing your tempurature will never do this for you.

    I don’t think it’s 3500 calories a pound. More like 1500-ish but I’d have to look it up… https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_scratch.gif

    Yes it is. Trust me, I know what I’m talking about. My mom is a dietition, I’ve heard about this sort of thing my entire life. I’ve also read a plethora of books on the subject. It is 3500, I’d bet my life on it. Google if you don’t believe me.

    Thank you for sharing babymaddy! Its true that it wouldn’t make much difference in calories burned by turning up or down the thermostat….BUT if the person really "thinks" it will make a difference, it can!! Hear me out…. I mean, if they feel good about making the small change, like they are taking charge of their health by doing something small, (like tuning up or down the thermostat) it could cause them to change other aspects of their lifestyle that really make a difference https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cheers.gif https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cheers.gif

    Ok,ok my bad. Like I said I didn’t look it up, so I wasn’t sure.

    I’ll be sure to never doubt your wisdom again in the future https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif .

    Small changes can make us feel more empowered, like we’re doing something positive no matter how small it may be. I work on the third floor and try to take the stairs to and from my job. It isn’t much but it gets my heart pumping a bit and might be helping me shed 6 calories or so. Every bit helps right? https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

    I take the stairs too, it’s good not to be lazy with the elevator. I just don’t think it should go as far as purposely turning down your air to burn cals, it gets kinda ridiculous when it gets to that point, ya know what I’m sayin https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cool.gif
