Taking Your Shoes Off At Home May Help You Lose Weight (Video)

A new study says that taking off your shoes when you enter the house may help you lose weight! Chemicals on the bottom of your shoes can effect your hormones. Lindsey Granger explains:

Chemicals called obesogens, which are found in everyday products, promote obesity by interfering with the way that our bodies store and process fat. A recent study reveals how using less plastic, getting rid of your carpet, and even taking off your shoes as soon as you get home can help reduce weight gain associated with obesogens.

Obesity has become an increasing problem, affecting millions of people worldwide. Among babies and children, a sharp rise in obesity cannot be fully explained by changes in diets and lifestyles alone.

Individuals who are overweight are at a higher risk for many serious health complications such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and certain types of cancer. Obesity contributes to an estimated 2.8 million deaths every year.

Obesogens disrupt how our bodies work on a cellular level. The chemicals increase our appetite and promote fat accumulation by increasing the number and size of our fat cells. Obesogens also change our ability to burn calories, making it more difficult to lose fat.
