Are not you a big fan of running? Then a team of researchers from the University of Loughborough in the UK released the results of a study that brings good news for you.
The researchers sought to verify the possible benefits of hot water bath and what they found was "an 80% increase in energy expenditure just as a result of sitting in the bathroom for an hour," according to exercise physiologist Steve Faulkner.
The specialist told the BBC that bathing with hot water only for half an hour burns the same calories as a quick 30-minute walk. However, this is not much compared to those who did an hour of cycling during the study, which burned an average of 630 calories.
But these baths would have other health benefits. Faulkner said that they help prevent type 2 diabetes because regulate blood sugar levels. Along with this, they blood pressure and they improve the immune system.
