Trying to lose weight is never easy, and most of us wish there was an easy way to jut take off the pounds. Well, now a new study suggests that the secret to slimming down may be as simple as taking your shoes off when you come home.
Okay, it’s probably not that simple, but a study out of the Universities of Aveiro and Beira Interior in Portugal suggest that environmental chemicals we bring into our homes on our feet, known as “obesogens,” are wrecking our hormones, which could be causing us to put on some pounds because fat levels are building up in our tissues.
Another way to fight against these contaminants is to have wood floors instead of carpet, and if you do have carpet to regularly vacuum in order to stop them from accumulating in household dust.
