There are countries that experience hot and dry weather conditions nearly all year round. Most of these countries can be found in Asia and in the Caribbean. In such places, you’ll feel that it’s summer even in the months when it’s supposed to be rainy or winter. You can enjoy some mild and cold days in such areas but they usually won’t last long and before you know it, you’re back to feeling hot and sweaty again.
Although living in such countries may be uncomfortable since you’re always sweltering and sweaty, there is a noteworthy advantage that comes with it – you can lose weight easier in such places.
There are various studies that have proven that people tend to lose weight easier in hot countries. If you live in a country that’s virtually summer all year round, below are the reasons why you will lose weight easier in such an area:
You tend to show more skin in a place that enjoys hot weather.
Women and men will be more comfortable and feel cooler when they go out while wearing something that shows off more skin. Of course, if they have to go to the beach or pool, they need to wear a swimsuit.
If you wear a swimsuit or an outfit that shows off more skin, of course, you want to be in your best shape while wearing them. Slipping into a bathing suit or any skimpy outfit can seriously motivate you to lose weight and get toned. As such, you will be more driven to eat correctly and to work out regularly to get a fitter and leaner body.
A sunny and nice weather can drive you to be more active. When the weather is warm, you tend to exercise more frequently. One research showed that exercise tends to be seasonal-in general, people are more active in the spring and summer and tend to slack off during the fall and winter. If you live in a hot or warm country, this wouldn’t be a big problem for you. Since the sun is always outside or the weather is great even in the evening, you can work out whenever you want to.
Finally, the hot weather can help suppress your appetite. Everyone wants to eat ice cream, one of the high-cal foods, whenever it’s hot. But aside from this, you may find that the hot condition may just compress your appetite. A 2013 study showed that people who worked out in a hot environment ate less afterward than those who exercised in a cooler setting. As such, red-hot temperatures may reduce your desire to eat even after a really tough workout.
