Cryotherapy Weight Loss
Research has shown that exposure to lower temperatures can help you burn extra calories and increase your metabolism. In Whole Body Cryotherapy, the outer layer of the skin’s temperature is reduced to between 41°F and 50°F. Your body responds by a boost in your metabolism and literally “burns” up calories by speeding up to literally “warm you up.”
Repeated exposure to Whole Body Cryotherapy can result in a sustained elevated metabolism. This means you could be burning way more calories every day.*
Cold Temperatures and Weight Loss
You may have heard about the diet of Michael Phelps during the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Phelps was reported to be taking in more than 12,000 calories a day while training. While the 12000 calorie claim has been widely disputed, it inspired one NASA materials scientist to look into it. Ray Cronise had studied the effects of cold on metabolism in space, and his theory was that Phelps was burning so many calories simply by being submerged in cool water for hours a day.
Since Cronise had been trying to lose weight, to test his theory, he began a routine of taking cold showers and going for shirtless walks in winter. He lost almost 27 pounds in six weeks. Cronise now continues to study the science of the effect of cold on metabolism.
Increased Metabolism Makes it Easier to Meet Weight Loss Goals
Other Scientific research indicates that exposure to cold temperatures over time can also lead to an increase of brown adipose tissue (“BAT”) in the body, a metabolic fat (i.e., fat that actually BURNS fat). More muscle and more BAT means increased resting metabolic rate; your body burning more calories throughout the day.
Whole body cryotherapy and CryoFacial™ treatments have become the favored anti-aging “bio-hack” of celebrities worldwide.
