egu­larly turn­ing the air con­di­tion­ing to a colder set­ting may help people lose weight due to ex­po­sure to lower tem­per­a­tures. Ja­panese re­searchers found that body fat de­creased in people who spent two hours a day in 17 de­grees for six weeks. Mean­while, Dutch sci­en­tists have dis­cov­ered that healthy brown fat in­creases when people are sub­jected to vari­able tem­per­a­tures in­side build­ings. Brown fat burns rather than stores calo­ries, and is ac­ti­vated in re­sponse to cold tem­per­a­tures.
