Ice Packs for Weight Loss
The theory of Ice Therapy and that when you are cold, your body has to do a lot more work to do the same things as when it is warm – so you burn much more fat. You have something called Brown Fat that is located around blood vessels and keeps your blood warm. By cooling off with ice, your body is forced to burn a dramatically larger number of calories. I have heard that sucking on ice cubes or drinking cold water also helps you to lose weight because your body has to use energy to bring the cold water or ice up to your body’s temperature.
