“Summer bodies are made in winter”

Is there anything better than waking up on a cold morning feeling cozy next to your cup of hot coffee? For youSfit-me-stephane-jabre-TRAIN-IN-WINTER-BURN-MORE-CALORIES, winter may be the season where you stay at home and don’t expose yourself to the cold weather or where you go out with friends to warm chilling places in order to have a good time…



Have you ever known that if you work out in cold weathers you burn more calories than during a training in a warm weather? Have you ever tried going out for a run while it is snowing? If yes, didn’t you feel more energized?  You may ask HOW! You are in the right place at the right time, because I will tell you WHY!

Generally, in order to lose fat, you have to:

  • Eat less
  • Workout more

Simple, but the thing is you have to be on a CALORIE DEFICIT: that means that you have to burn more calories than your daily calorie intake.

From now on there is one more thing we can add to our list of “how to lose fat”:

  • Not be afraid of training out in the cold

Actually we have to honor with all our hearts a protein produced by our body named: SARCOLIPIN, according to Professor Muthu Periasamy, Ph.D. THE JOURNAL OF BIOLOGICAL CHEMISTRY VOL. 290, NO. 17

His research brought the following facts:

  • In every cell in our body, there is one component named mitochondria that plays a major role in creating and producing the energy needed for the body to function and maintain homeostasis. Without diving into the details, it’s all in the hydrolysis of ATP that takes place in the mitochondria of a cell, which gives us the heat and the energy to walk, talk, run, think…
  • Sarcolipin (SLN), a regulator of SR Ca2+ ATPase in muscle that promotes and increase heat production.
  • SLN can help as novel target to upsurge energy disbursement in muscle.

SLN is activated in cold and not warm weathers.  Its activation will increase the metabolism and will activate the production of more and more mitochondria in cells, thus maximizing the fat burning process.

For Periasamy, we should stay outdoor!

In conclusion cold weathers are great for improving fat loss, and thanks to the SARCOLIPIN protein that enables a complex procedure in order to force the body use the fat inside.
