Taking A Hot Bath Can Burn As Many Calories As A 30-Minute Walk

Which is more relaxing: taking a hot bath or working out? If you named the former, good news: a new study from Loughborough University found soaking in a 104-degree bath for a half hour caused participants to burn 130 calories. For some perspective, that’s about the same amount you’d burn in a 30-minute walk. It’s believed the rise in body temperature is what causes the calorie burn. In the study, the soak also lowered their blood sugar by ten percent. (The Sun)¬†
