If you aren't a fan of taking a bath, this news may change your mind. 

Taking a hot bath has some serious health benefits! According to research from Loughborough University, hot baths can burn the same amount of calories as going for a run. Yes!

In fact, if you take an hour-long bath with the water temperature at 104 degrees it could be the same as going on an hour-long bike ride.

Baths can also help prevent diabetes and control blood sugar levels. It's all through a process called passive heating

I think it's time to treat yourself to a nice soak in a hot tub tonight to burn some calories.
