    Just wondering if anyone else gets cold while on this diet? I have been sole sourcing for approx 6 weeks and my hands are freezing! This isn't the first occasion its happened. Some say its linked with ketosis? Some say it isnt? Any suggestions?

    I dont think its a ketosis symptom, I never had it when on high protein diet, I think its more due to the low calories, but yes it is a symptom of VLCD's

    I've not had it this week but had it alot about 2 weeks ago and on and off during this diet, not just my hands though a general feeling of needing another jumper etc.

    Having said that I suffer with poor circulation anyway so i might be predisposed to this anyway LOL

    hi, i have looked into the cold factor and the information i found makes perfect sense.
    it takes a lot of energy from calories for the body to keep itself warm.
    We are now severely restricting the amount of calories we are giving our bodies so our body puts itself on a budget (so to speak).
    being sensible, the body chooses to use the energy we provide as wisely as possible so concentrates on organ function, brain activity etc and keeps our temperature at a safe level but doesnt bother wasting vital energy over heating to a comfortable level.
    if u only had £1 of gas in ur house u wouldnt bother getting 'warm' would u, u would only bother getting the heat to a bareable temperature. :)
    hope this helps (think i rambled slightly) lol
