Cold weather wt loss: If you are "cold" and do not wear appropriate clothes for the climate. The answer is a qualified "yes"; a few more but not significant enough to try nudity in the arctic as a weight loss plan. Frostbite could kill you. On the other hand, if you are more active in the winter-ski snowshoe, snowboard, shovel snow and don't compensate with more food, you can lose weight and become more fit.
