Weight loss: Hot water bath better than 30 minutes of walking? — Times of India

You may have heard about a new study that found taking a hot bath burns as many calories as working out. (And you may have also hopped in the bath immediately—you know, just in case.) The idea sounds too good to be true, and it is…sort of.

Here’s the deal: The study, which was published in the journal Temperature (no pun intended), was led by Steve Faulkner, Ph.D., an exercise physiologist at Loughborough University. Faulkner looked at the link between taking a hot bath, a person’s blood sugar, and how many calories they burned. He conducted the study on 14 men (some of whom were overweight). He discovered that taking a hot bath burns about 140 calories per hour. The baths also lowered the men’s peak blood sugar after they ate by about 10 percent more than exercising did.

It’s a pretty neat discovery, but you shouldn’t swap your regular gym sessions for hot baths just yet. You’re always burning calories, even when you’re just sitting on your butt, and the amount of calories each person burns doing a certain activity varies depending on a few factors, including their weight and body composition. Since these were men—and some of them were overweight—it’s likely that they’d burn more calories in the bath than an average-sized woman (meaning, you might not even burn 140 calories in the tub). And while 140 calories in an hour isn’t anything to brush off—that’s about the equivalent of a craft beer—you can burn that amount and then some so much faster by going for a run, lifting weights, or hitting the elliptical. Plus, you’d be seriously prune-y after an hour in the tub. (The Slim, Sexy, Strong Workout DVD is the fast, flexible workout you’ve been waiting for!)

Jennifer Wider, M.D., says the study’s findings are part of a new body of research known as “passive heating.”

“It’s a pretty new area of research, but several positive results have come out over the last few years,” she says. “It may become a lasting trend.”

Wider says more research is needed since the study was so small, but it demonstrates how «heath shock proteins,» a family of proteins that are produced by your cells in response to stressful conditions, can become elevated during both exercise and passive heating, like when you’re taking a sauna or hot bath. “These proteins may help the function of insulin and improve blood sugar control,” she says. And, if your blood sugar is controlled and even, you’re less likely to suffer from blood sugar crashes which can leave you feeling hungry—and make you more likely to overeat.

But if you’re forced to decide between taking a hot bath and working out, Wider says it’s still best to hit the gym.

Tight on time? This quickie workout will help you squeeze in some exercise:

“The benefits of exercise have been well-established,” she says. “Even if future studies support the health benefits of passive heating, nothing replaces the multitude of benefits a person will get with regular exercise.” But, hey, if you want to lounge in a hot bath after you work out, it’s cool to know that you may end up burning a few extra calories in the process.

Yes, hot showers can help you lose weight. Here’s how: They can be a diversion from overeating. Just spend 5 hours a day in a hot shower, and oh yeah… there’s a rule: no eating in the shower! That’s five hours in which you’re not eating. Assuming you sleep 8 hours a day, work 8 hours a day, and exercise one hour (with no eating during those times either!), that leaves only two more hours in which you can eat. Make sure you don’t overeat during that time.

Other than that, no, hot showers can’t help you lose weight.

With the changing of the seasons, colds and flu also reign.

Work on that resistance (and a lot of other things) in this spartan, but effective, way.

Cold shower.

You must not think about it.

A nice and warm shower should be.

Still, a cold shower, or even just a few minutes of showering, gives you much more.

Strong resistance for example.

A better skin too, and a better figure.

Do you need even more reasons?

1. Very immune

A cold shower makes your body go to work, it must get you warm again.

Your blood is pumped faster to the important organs to prevent them from becoming supercooled, a sort of primal …

With hot showers, you don’t burn any weight that I know of. Since your body is already warm, you’re just going to make your body MORE warmer, leading to overheating, which can harm people too. I mean, you possibly can get rid of 10–15 calories, but it’s very unlikely. However, that doesn’t mean you aren’t burning calories in a hot shower condition.

The real choice in showering is cold showers. You hit brown fats directly, since once you go full blast cold, your body gets a real shock, and you go in survival mode. Your body begins producing as much heat as the body can, leading to burning fat, since fat is a common fuel. With showering with cold water, the results are small, but it’s still more than a warm, or hot bath.

25–50 calories can be burned during high cold showers, that I know of. Not only do I live by cold showers, I shower cold spiritually, I feel if my body is exposed to cold, it’ll fight that cold, and spiritually make my body stronger.

Yes. In many sports, such as wrestling, the athletes need to cut weight quickly. Water weight is one way of doing it very quickly. The body sweats, losing water weight whenever an uncomfortable temperature is reached. The skin can absorb moisture as well to rehydrate. This rehydration does not take place under hot water as the body is purging extra moisture to disapate heat and will not re-absorb significant amounts of water. I used to alternate between hot tub and pool when I was working on body recomposition while training for soccer. It worked quite well. Keep in mind that cold exposure …

Some things just sound too good to be true, like coffee supposedly making you live longer and chocolate making you smarter. In a reasonable Universe, such outcomes are unreasonably, unthinkably good.

Here’s another one you might have heard of. Does a hot bath really burn as many calories as taking a 30-minute walk? It would be nice if it were true, honestly it would. Think about it: you get to take a nice, relaxing soak, while simultaneously reaping the benefits of moderate exercise. It’s win-win.

The best part? It’s for real.

A study released last year by exercise physiologist Steve Faulkner from Loughborough University in the UK found the mere act of taking a hot bath reduced mens’ peak blood sugar levels while causing their energy expenditure to spike significantly.

Not bad for something you can do while leisurely reclining in the comfort and privacy of your bathroom.

«One of the first things that we were looking at is the energy expenditure while you’re in the bath,» Faulkner told the BBC in 2016, «and what we found was an 80 percent increase in energy expenditure just as a result of sitting in the bath for the course of an hour.»

So, there are two things to be aware of upfront.

As stated, in the experiment the bath lasted for a whole hour, so you need some time on your hands if you want to try this at home.

The other is temperature. The study, which involved 14 men wearing glucose monitors, saw the temperature of the bath kept at a constant, hot 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit), so a lukewarm soak would produce different, and lesser results.

But why does it work at all?

Faulkner thinks the answer lies in what are called heat shock proteins – which we produce in both exercise, and, as the results show, passive heating, where body temperature is raised independently of exercise.

«Heat shock proteins are molecules that are made by all cells of the human body in response to stresses,» Faulkner explained in The Conversation last year.

«In the long term, raised levels of these proteins may help the function of insulin and improve blood sugar control.»

These kinds of proteins are known to be lower in people with diabetes, and Faulkner says the results suggest passive heating could be a useful technique to help people with type 2 diabetes control their glucose levels, in addition to helping with weight management generally.

Not that the researchers are saying everybody should quit their gym memberships and just take up bathing as a substitute.

While the men in the study burned an average of almost 140 calories per hour while taking their hot bath, they got a much better result from cycling for the same length of time – using up the equivalent of 630 calories.

Because of that almost-fivefold disparity, the researchers suggest passive heating should mostly be recommended for people whose health considerations for whatever reason make it difficult for them to engage in physical exercise.

In those cases, this could be the next best thing to obtaining the benefits of moderate exercise – and you can catch up on your reading at the same time. Not to mention getting clean, and just getting away from the world for a while.

In fact, if you have the means – a bathtub and 60 minutes with nowhere to be – we’d recommend preparing yourself a nice hot one right now. Immerse yourself, relax, and – now that we know the science – feel the burn.

The findings are reported in Temperature.

Fad diets to workout regimes, there really is no end to the extent people go just to fulfill the mission of losing those piling kilos. While working out is an important factor contributing to weight loss, going to the gym especially after a long, hard day can be exhausting.

Weight loss

just doesn’t happen overnight and requires a lot of effort and exercises which cater to your need.

Turns out, you really do not need to depend on just a gym session to burn those calories. Taking a hot shower would do the job well too!

According to a study conducted by Dr. Faulkner in a London based university, it has been observed that you can actually burn just the same amount of calories as a rigorous 30-minute walk or jog session.

The study
For the experiment, 14 men were asked to perform in two tests- spend one hour bicycling or run the treadmill and then spend one hour in the hot tub. The sequence may sound very relaxing and ideal, the main goal behind this was to see how many calories were the men able to burn through both activities. The main goal behind doing this experiment was to raise the body temperature by just a degree.

Results
While there was no denying that the actual workout burned way more calories, it was observed that spending the required time in hot water burned around 130 calories, which is just the same as that of a 30-minute walk session.

Why is that?

It might sound strange but there is a very valid reason why hot water helps in fat burning. No, it won’t just get rid of the fat or the weight but what hot water does it speed up the process and reduce inflammation in your body, which is core to weight loss.

The bath also seemed to have the same effect as exercise when it came to the anti-inflammatory response post-activity for each of the participants. Following up on the test results a day later, it was also found that the participants’ blood sugar levels were 10 percent lower than those who did not spend one hour in hot water.

When the body has a higher than regular temperature, it burns more calories. To deal with the produced heat, the body works harder to maintain the internal temperature levels and burns way more calories. Basically, when the body faces any external stress like this, heat shock proteins are produced which accelerate the fat burning process.

Besides aiding weight loss and calorie burning, taking a hot bath or simply relaxing in hot water has plenty of benefits to offer for our skin, muscles, joints as well as the heart. Pain levels are reduced and hot water regulates blood flow levels as well. It is also a cure for insomnia.

But keep in mind, depending alone on hot showers cannot solve the problem. Indulging in any kind of workout along with a proper diet is the only way you can actually lose weight in the long run and maintain your health.

Losing weight without exercise is nearly every dieter’s dream.

Now a new study has found you can do exactly that simply by running a hot bath.

In fact, a soak in the tub burns an average 126 calories an hour — the equivalent to taking a 25 to 30-minute walk.

It is believed passive heating, such as a bath, increases the rate people burn calories. 

Spending an hour in a hot bath was found to burn an average 126 calories and was more effective at lowering blood sugar levels than cycling

Dr Steve Faulkner, and the team at Loughborough and Leicester Universities, made the surprising discovery when they were investigating alternatives to exercise to control type 2 diabetes.    

In the study, they compared having a hot bath to the same period of time spent cycling and discovered the less strenuous activity had some surprising benefits.

They found spending an hour in the bath was more effective at lowering blood sugar levels than cycling. 

The experiment involved 10 unfit men who all bathed at 40˚C (104F) while wearing a glucose monitor to record changes in their blood sugar during the subsequent 24 hours.

The same participants also cycled on a different day, at an intensity that increased their body temperature by 1˚C, to match what happened during their bathing session. 

‘We discovered the participants who bathed had, on average, 10 per cent lower peak glucose levels in comparison to the exercise, which was completely unexpected,’ Dr Faulkner said.

‘The amount our blood sugar rises after a meal is one of the risk markers for things like developing type 2 diabetes, so keeping it down can be good for our health.’

It is thought the release of heat shock proteins help to lower blood sugar levels and could be used to help weight control 

It is thought the release of heat shock proteins help to lower blood sugar levels and could be used to help weight control 

Although scientists admit it was nowhere near the increase resulting from exercise, the bath also resulted in an 80 per cent increase in energy expenditure. 

It meant they were burning more than 100 calories while lying, doing nothing.

The research suggests heat can increase the rate people burn calories and may help to reduce blood sugar spikes after eating.

It is hoped the findings will help weight control and possibly improve control of blood sugar, which would help people with type 2 diabetes.

Dr Faulkner added: ‘We think the reason is that the bath may encourage the release of heat shock proteins, which may help lower blood sugar levels by improving insulin controlled glucose uptake.

‘However, although these findings are interesting, we would always encourage increased physical activity and exercise as the best way to maintain good health.’

She then captioned the post with a lengthy caption in which she listed all the things trolls chastised her about.

She fumed: ‘She shouldn’t have a dummy. It’s not cold enough for a hat. I hope you’re breast feeding.

‘Get a proper pram. Can’t believe you wake her to feed. She doesn’t need two blankets. She shouldn’t be around the dogs. 

‘Her heads not supported on that. She’s sat too low in the papoose. Put mittens on her. Can’t believe you went out with her already.’

In an unearthed interview with People, Adele admitted she would refuse to work with anyone who told her to lose weight. 

‘Even when I was signing a contract, most of the industry knew if anyone ever dared say: «Lose weight» to me, they wouldn’t be working with me,’ she revealed. 

On Wednesday, Drake showcased her killer frame at Drake‘s 33rd birthday bash, which was held at Goya studios in Hollywood.

And now it has been claimed that the singer has overhauled her fitness regime and diet with the likes of reformer pilates, the Sirtfood Diet, cutting down on sugar and weights in the gym.

In June, it was claimed that the Hello hitmaker, who split from husband Simon Konecki in April, had taken up reformer pilates with Ayda Field and it had given her a new lease of life.

A source told The Sun: ‘Adele has been out enjoying herself and she sees that as her priority at the moment, along with being a mum to Angelo.

‘She has been loving her new workout regime and it really works for her. 

‘It’s a bonus that she has shifted some weight. Her mates are glad she’s letting loose and there’s nothing but good feelings towards her. She’s got a new lease of life.’

MailOnline reached out to Adele’s representatives for further comment at the time. 

The Reformer Pilates class helps improve posture, flexibility and balance as well as a great weight loss strategy.

And it’s all the rave with the A-list celebs including the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Kate Winslet and Madonna.  

While in 2016 a source told the Daily Mail that Adele, who is said to be dating Grime artist Skepta, 37,  had lost weight through The Sirtfood Diet and a fitness plan from trainer Pete Geracimo – whose clients include David Hasselhoff and Kim Cattrall.

The diet, which Mr Geracimo recommends, encourages slimmers to eat plant foods, such as kale and buckwheat, known as sirtuin activators, which suppress appetite and activate the body’s ‘skinny gene’.

This is the same process caused by fasting or exercise and the sirtuins – also known as ‘housekeeping genes’ – help control the way our bodies handle fat and sugar, regulating appetite as a result.

The eating plan complements a gruelling gym regime and sees Adele consume the likes of green tea, cocoa powder and turmeric, that are high in sirtuin activators while the star is still allowed to indulge in her favourite red wine and cheese. 

A source told Daily Mail: ‘The Sirtfood Diet is all about losing weight and feeling fantastic through eating great-tasting food. 

‘It’s based on extensive research into the power of key plant foods, which when added to our diet turn on fat burning and improve well being.’ 

A year earlier, in 2015, Adele revealed her tremendous weight loss is the result of giving up tea drinking, admitting she used to drink around 10 cups of the hot beverage a day.

Speaking to The Sun about getting into shape, the singer dished: ‘I used to drink 10 cups a day with two sugars in each so I was on 20 sugars a day.’ 

The Hello hitmaker also admitted that her lessening sugar intake — which was formerly treble the women’s recommended daily added sugar limit — has also seen given her a surge of vitality.

‘Now I don’t drink it and I have more energy than ever,’ she added.

But while she revealed she had drastically reduced the amount of sugar she consumes, Adele — who welcomed seven-year-old son Angelo in 2012 — admitted to Rolling Stone in 2015 that she would never ‘deprive’ herself of the odd sweet treat. 

The award-winning songstress also admitted that she tends to hit the gym while she tours — though that’s not to say she’s a fan of working out and has no plans ‘to be a size zero or anything like that.’

‘I’m not, like, skipping to the f**king gym. I don’t enjoy it. I do like doing weights. I don’t like looking in the mirror. Blood vessels burst on my face really easily, so I’m so conscious when I’m lifting weights not to let them burst in my face,’ she said.

‘And if I don’t tour, you’ll catch me back down at the Chinese!’

Adele continued to show off her incredible weight loss as she cosied up to her good pal Drake during his 33rd birthday bash. 

Showcasing her newly svelte figure in an off the shoulder black velvet gown, the hitmaker, 31, couldn’t wipe the smile from her face as she partied the night away. 

Drake appeared thrilled in her company of the Hello hitmaker, who gushed over the ‘kind and funny’ birthday boy in a sweet Instagram snap.  

Adele looked incredible as she stepped out to celebrate Drake’s birthday at the Goya studios in Hollywood on Wednesday.

The beauty shared a playful photo from the evening’s events, with the caption: ‘I used to cry but now I sweat.’

She also added the hashtag #gingermckenna’ — in homage to the iconic villain from the 1995 film Casino, played by Sharon Stone.

The star continued: ‘Happy birthday to one of the kindest and funniest people I’ve met @champagnepapi.’

Adele and Drake has been low-key friends for a long time. Back in February it was reported that the superstar pair visited a vape lounge and rented out an entire 32-lane bowling alley in Studio City during a night out and ate at Jerry’s famous deli.

This came months after the singer made an unexpected appearance at his show.

In October last year, Drake, who refers to himself as Champagne Papi on social media, was said to be thrilled after Adele watched him perform at a Los Angeles show without his prior knowledge.

Taking to Twitter shortly after his performance, Adele raved: ‘Oii Champagne Papi blew my mind tonight! Best production I’ve ever seen hands down and way up there with one of my favorite shows of all time. Huge love.’

Returning the compliment, a clearly stunned Drake later thanked the singer after reposting her tweet on Instagram.

Captioning the post, he wrote: ‘Oiiiiiii don’t f***ing get me gassed right now I love this woman and she came to the show. Thank god nobody told me I would have been SHOOK (sic)’
