KILL Your Fat Cells Instantly By Freezing Them!
When it comes to body fat, location and amount are not the only things that matter. Instead, there are two different kinds of body fat, and it turns out that one of them will do the job of burning fat for you. Brown adipose tissue, or BAT, is designed to be a heat-generation source that your body can burn to keep warm. All you have to do to activate it is to get cold enough to shiver. Best of all, if you get cold regularly, your body will turn puffy white cellulite adipose tissue into a lean brown adipose tissue to help you prepare for the next cold spell.
How it Works
The process of creating heat from fat burning is called thermogenesis. It is the second step in your body’s way of keeping your body at its core temperature, and necessary to avoid hypothermia. When you feel cold, your blood vessels will first constrict in order to keep your blood from cooling as it pumps past your external body region. Second, it will create its own heat by burning BAT, and finally it will shiver to release a hormone called irisin, which tells the body to convert its white adipose tissue into brown. This hormone is also released during endurance exercises, as BAT is a much more energy-efficient storage tissue than white adipose. However, National Institute of Health studies has shown that the level of irisin released after an hour-long bike ride is attained after only ten or fifteen minutes of shivering.

The Benefits of BAT
Not only is brown adipose tissue more efficient than white, it has other benefits as well. It looks better on your body because it is denser, making you thinner. It is linked to lower insulin levels, which means a smaller chance of type 2 adult onset diabetes.
What Are Your Options
Commercial CoolSculpting uses an FDA approved device to chill the skin for up to an hour, with a session lasting one to three hours, producing a reduction in the fat thickness in the treated area. Animal and human studies have shown a reduction in fat thickness between 20% and 80% over 3 months following treatment
Since CoolSculpting uses cold to reduce fat and it can be effective as long as you know the limitations; a similar effect can be achieved cheaply at home.

There are a number of ways that you can take advantage of this news to help burn fat. The simplest way is to lower your thermostat this winter. Studies recommend that if you keep your home between 65-68 degrees, it can make a huge difference in fat burning, not to mention the cost of your winter heating bill. Cold baths and showers and swimming are all great ways to stay cool as well, especially with the combined exercise benefits that swimming has to offer. Instead of leaving the pool when you’re cold, stay ten extra minutes and watch the pounds melt away. This is an especially good option for people who live in a warm climate and can’t use the outside temperatures to lose weight.
It is important to remember to only cool yourself for short periods, however, because hypothermia will not only lower your metabolism and stop the weight loss, it will also create a health risk.
