Cold can help you lose weight
The cold can help you lose more weight because suffering from low temperatures burns more fat. This is due to the chills you feel due to the cold, which can help turn white fat (reserve) into brown fat (to be burned). This means that outdoor training forces the body to burn more calories to maintain proper thermoregulation, which makes physical activity more effective.
