    This is probably a bit of a daft one. I am am a little bit chilly - not freezing but would normally put on a jumper or cardi. Will I burn more calories if I let myself be a bit bearably chilly rather than always putting warmer clothes on? Am I being a bit obsessive? Don't worry I can take the truth lol. :D

    You are not going to burn many calories by letting yourself stay cold, the reason you are feeling chilly is that your body is not expending calories to keep itself warm as freely as it would before, so put a jumper on a warm up that way!

    Yikes Peony.....get a cardi on girl. Pretty sure that you wont burn extra calories by being cold.
    Im sure I have heard though that having a hot drink as opposed to having a cold drink burns more calories....so knock yourself out and have a hot cofee too...you will be all warmed up then :)
