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

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