why am i so cold?

Yeah, most people find that Ketosis makes them cold, I think it's to do with the body slowing down it's metabolism though I can't be sure of that fact.

It comes and goes for me, some days I'll feel extremely cold even when near a radiator, other days (like today) I don't notice the cold at all; even as I type this, I am sitting next to an open window and actually enjoying the cool air breeze!

Strange things, our bodies :p

Welcome to Keto Land lol

I too am always freezing.

I think a reasonable weight loss affects it too MommyB it is like losing insulation...
Im cold.. even with the heating on full.. hands and feet are the worse.. im wearing bed socks to bed last few nights.. which i never do!

Im on day 6 of s/s and from what im told being cold is a good sign that im losing weight! :D

But still it is very cold :gen125: im fully dressed.. heating on and still got my dressing gown ontop as im writing this! lol :)


Gone fishing
i no its cold out there but been on cd a week and im freezing?
is that normal?
Probably because it is cold :D

But also because cutting down on calories causes thermogenesis;) when you eat, your body makes heat.

Less food, less heat.

It's also to do with a reduced metobolic rate (which happens with every diet), and of course, as the diet goes on, you have less fat insulation.

Lots of layers needed :)


Wants to shed pounds more
It appears the colder it is outside and the colder I appear to be, the more weight I tend to lose. I am wearing all my old clothes on top of all my new ones. People havent noticed I have lost weight because I am so stacked out with clothes. I just have this diddy little face and a hemispheric body lol :)
