Are you aware that air conditioning makes you fat? I’m not kidding, and this now poses as a bit of a conundrum for me. Sure, I enjoy the comfort of a room that has the ideal temperature already preset, but I also enjoy a waistline that isn’t growing. And also living in a region of the world where the temperatures can skyrocket in summer makes the personal problem all that more pressing. What to do? Sweat and be dehydrated and thin, or sit back in a luxuriously cool room while gaining an extra wide girth? You can see my problem, and I bet it’s something that many of you are now wondering yourself. But this does beg the question, how is it that air conditioning makes you fat?
It really has nothing to do with laziness or excessive eating. Many people who diet and exercise can still find it extremely difficult to keep additional weight off their bodies. It all comes down to burning calories, even when you are only sitting about.
