Boosts calo­rie burn by 10%

First For Women - - Health -

Slip­ping on sneak­ers and your fa­vorite jeans to run er­rands is a great way to slim on the go. Re­searchers at the Univer­sity of Wis­con­sin found that wear­ing ca­sual clothes sub­con­sciously mo­ti­vated sub­jects to walk fur­ther and put in more phys­i­cal ef­fort to com­plete tasks. All told, this ef­fect helped study par­tic­i­pants log an av­er­age of 491 more steps on days they dressed for com­fort—an ef­fect that in­creased their calo­rie-burn­ing ac­tiv­ity by nearly 10 per­cent.
