    This is a sure sign that you are in ketosis, therefore burning fat, try drinking hot water to help warm you up a little, this helped me greatly. Or a weak black tea/coffee. It is worth the chill to get the weight off.
    Could you be coming down with a cold, as just recently I got colder than usual and a couple of days later had a full blown cold.

    Take care and keep posting for support.

    And at night....socks, nightie, 13 tog duvet, blanket and slept in dressing gown too!!

    I am one who never ever felt the cold!!

    suffering too

    Hi,

    I am suffering too. I suffer from Reynauds syndrome anyway, which means I feel the cold especially in fingers and toes, but with the added CD chill. I am freezing and wrapped up in a sleeping bag typing this.

    Its a symptom that the diet is working, Ive never been as cold in my life since I started this diet, but its been worth it.

    Yep I'm permanently freezing, hubby and kids think they are living in a hothouse and I can't feel it. I've started keeping a throw in a cupboard under the stairs and cover myself with it when I'm particularly bad .... and wearing socks to bed just aint the most romantic thing in the world!

    To be honest with Reynauds, wearing socks to bed and even gloves for a picnic is the norm. Even have to put gloves on to venture into the freezer!! In the winter, I usually wear two pairs of gloves, one lining pair and the other I got sent from Canada as they have extreme cold conditions.
    Can't even put socks on one foot at the moment, as I have broken my toe!!

    Any tips?
