  • Temps are throwing me off. I can tell I'm much warmer just by the feel of my hands and feet, but my temp the other day said 97.4 in the late afternoon. Isn't that still pretty low?

    Will be interesting to see if your weight loss speeds up with the T3!
    Yes, I am thinking the same thing! Will be interested to know.
    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

      It is low. Stone says that the minimum temp at any given time should be 37.2C (98.96), well at least 98F after recovery. CW says body temp is exactly 37C (98.8F) Mine is frightening low at below 36C (98.6F) sometimes.

      • No comment on the croissants, but I've been eating ice cream or gelato, (what's the difference anyway) every day over the last month or so. It's freakin' delicious. I just make sure I pick the kind made with sugar and not too much funky stuff added.

          Well I'm still working on it... At least I've seen an improvement. Any recommendations?

            Oh, mine is well below that. I really don't care anymore

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

            In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

              • I don't think my temp has ever hit 98 (except when I'm running a fever). 97.8 is high for me.

                  Wish I wasn't too tired to make an "animal" joke.

                    I think Gelato is more of an italian dessert. Not sure what the ingredients are though. I'm not even sure if I'll eat the croissants, I just bought them because I wanted one a few days ago but I'll see how they are.

                      I like that he wrote "tool"..

                        Oh, no. Didn't mean to come across as judgmental or anything. By all means enjoy them croissants. IDK if it's available in England, but here Talenti gelato is almost everywhere. Most of the flavors are straight forward ingredient-wise. Just the basic few.

                          Don't drink any water. (or very, very little). Use Milk for main liquids if you tolerate it as it won't dilute your minerals and extracellular fluids. (those outside of cells). Drink only when thirsty and not because of habits or other recommendations.

                          Ice Cream is apparently the best food to get temp/metabolism up, as is full fat milk.

                          Keep stress to a minimum. Low body temp means the body is already under stress so you don't want any external stressors in addition. Don't worry about not being productive with your day if you are on a diet recovery - a long term diet needs a lot of food and rest to recover the body.

                          It can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of months to get a good temperature. Most info I've seen says that within 3 weeks of intense re-feeding, temperature rises to normal. It's after this rise that you still need to keep eating a lot to really fire up your metabolism to boost thyroid. (if that's what your goal is)

                          • My temperature is still in the mid 97s, and still low 97s early when I wake up - according to my thermometer. (which I'm not sure is accurate).

I know it doesn't really help with temperature, per se, but it really helped me with my circulation when I was remembering to do it! My cold-blooded little Vampire hands are no more. :P
                              98.6 (37C) is the normal body temp, but Matt Stone think it's better for a number of reasons (and depending on the individual circumstance) that it's even better to go above the normal temp. (not by a lot but some report 99F quite frequently after re-feeding)

                              I'm just looking to get rid of my freezing feet and get to 98.6 for the time being. I dry brush almost daily and have done for over 3 years. It's good for the lymphatic system (and acne) which is also why I do it. Plus it makes you feel more human and like your blood is actually flowing lol.

                                Haha, I wasn't sure if you were or not, but I should have realised that if your'e reading this thread, you aren't judging my every food choice! I've never seen Gelato in the supermarket but I think some do stock it. I think most are fruit based, kinda like a cross between dairy ice cream and sorbet.
