    Yes, your body burns more calories trying to maintain the correct body heat. Because it has to spend that energy keeping you warm, your body has less energy to fight off disease. You are much more likely to get sick when you are cold.

    I've read your other questions. Don't use this as a weight loss technique.

    yeah your body burns calorie trying to heat up your body to it's natural temperature or something like that.. umm im not quite sure how many it burns but i know it's not that much..I would still rather chose to be inside a nice warm house though :)
