    OK i am fed up now

    i've been on the CD since 25th august and have lost just over 3 Stone, but for the past 3 weeks i've been freezing!! this especialy my feet and hands but generaly all over.

    I spoke to my CDC about it and she said it's a phase i am going for , FFS how long is this phase going to last , i have to wrap up in tripple layers at work , i even have brought thermal socks and fingerless gloves for work.

    It's only October, what am i going to be like come Winter ???

    Hi Luke,

    Well done on losing three stone!:happy096:

    Being cold is a side effect of ketosis and I suffer from it myself:winter_brr:

    Putting on layers of clothes helps as if you get too hot:rolleyes: you can take off one layer at a time.

    Good news is that you are probably burning mega fat to try and keep warm.

    Keep a diary and see the weeks you feel coldest do you lose the most weight.

    Love Mini xxx

    I also suffer from feeling the cold. I have got myself into a routine of having a hot bath each evening and changing into joggers as a pj alternative. Followed by lots of white tea to warm up. I also invested in a foot spa - so lush on my ice cube feet!

    Hugs x x x

    Hi Luke

    Having done lighterlife before, I can really empathise with the feeling cold. So far I have been ok but I do keep wondering when the dreaded freeze will start.
    That was one of the reasons that I tried to start CD as soon after my birthday as possible (end of May) but unfortunately I couldn't get the motivation and had a couple of false starts. I so wanted to be doing the diet during warm weather to see if it helped.
    Bought my thermals from good old M & S, had electric blanket, wore several layers to bed and wrapped myself in a thick blanket, with high tog duvet over me. Drank all of my shakes hot, plus plenty of hot drinks like black coffee and the bouillion in between, even resorted to drinking boiled water to contribute towards the 4 litres a day.

    And I still felt quite miserable! It would be very useful to read any other suggestions, as being so cold makes the diet that more tough.

    Thats it, i'm sold on the fluffy boots....off to get some tomorrow. Socks just don't cut it.

    This is by far the most uncomfortable side effect ever, its been 23degrees on my thermostat and i'm still frozen. My hands actually looked a bit blue today. Spare duvet always at hand and i am seriously considering thermal undies! Can't imagine coping when winter comes......:winter_brr:

    God knows what my heating bill will be like , i guess the CDC counciller was telling porkys when she said was a phase , i got thermal socks which i use and gloves with holes in , i am now looking at thermal vests.

    Already have my Winter quilt on, but will be adding the Summer quilt onto it too i think.

    Are electic blankets good, i didn't think they were safe, i will be putting a hot water bottle in the bed tonight!!

    Hi Luke

    I used an electric blanket to heat up the bed for about 15 minutes or so before I get in, then switched off blanket and had a couple of hot water bottles, have already got winter and summer duvets attached together.
    I hope that they are safe if used in moderation.

    I think I will have to resign myself to having the heating on more - I suppose I save money by doing CD as I used to spend a lot on food, plus eating out and alcohol.

    Sending my sympathies - I am sure it will hit me soon!
