If you are looking to lose weight, these frigid temperatures might be the answer.

A new study finds spending time in colder temperatures could help shrink your waistline. Researchers found people who spent two hours a day at 62.6 degrees for six weeks had a decrease in body fat.

They say the exposure to lower temperatures simulates exercise, because the body expends more energy to stay warm.

The study also shows people get used to cold over a period of time and temperatures as low as 59 degrees feels "comfortable."
