Scientists have that staying in the cold could us lose weight. Researchers at the University of California that exposure to the cold levels of a protein that helps form brown fat - the type of fat that generates heat and keeps us warm. Brown fat energy, which helps us lose weight. White fat excess energy, which in weight gain. The researchers said that because air conditioning and heating us constant, comfortable temperatures, our body's need for brown fat has decreased. They found that: "Outdoor workers in northern Finland who are to cold temperature have a significant amount of brown fat when to same-aged indoor workers."

The research was on two different control groups of mice. One group was with the protein that helps brown fat. This group subsequently gained 30 per cent less weight after both groups were high-fat diets. The researchers say this could good news in the fight against obesity. People who obese have lower levels of brown fat than thinner people. Head researcher Hei Sook Sul said: "This protein could an important target for research into the treatment and prevention of obesity and obesity-related diseases." She added: "If you can somehow levels of this protein…you could possibly more weight even if the same amount of food."
