To Burn Fat - GET COLD

No need to work out, just take a cold shower twice a day.  According to Tim Ferriss, author of the 4 Hour Body, you can boost your T (for men) and activate brown fat by exposing yourself to cold.  Brown fat is a heat generation engine. 

I doubt this should be considered a significant long term strategy, but it's interesting all the same.

While I did no serious experimentation with this idea, I found that cold showers were a significant anti-inflammatory when I was feeling beat up after a few days of intense work outs.  Too bad I hate cold showers as much as I do!
