    Yes it's quite normal as far as i'm aware...i think it's a "side effect" of being in Ketosis, so it's good news really lol

    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

    read this thread as although i'm a weightwatcher not a cd'er it grabbed my attention. sometimes when i am really'on it ' and having a good week i feel really cold, but dont think my diet would sned me into ketosis, there must be something in it tho.

    btw pete love the new photo.....looking good dude

    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 :)

    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 :)
