    Fascinating. I wonder if it bugs him enough to try eliminating food groups for a while to find out... Thanks for the feedback!

    Not me. I'm wearing a jacket a lot more than the last few years. Apparently, I was better-insulated before. LOL

    I find myself wanting to jog or sprint to my car as well! We have to park on the street and it's just a quick half-block, but sometimes I'm bursting with energy .

    Drinking your morning coffee black, with a spoonful of coconut oil, and a touch of cinnamon, at eight in the morning. And then not being truly hungy again until four.

    FAT HAPPINESS.
    (plus its like coconut oil lip balm when you drink it!!)

    I know! I went out for dinner for my sister's birthday the other day and she ordered pasta. I ate a larger volume of food by far, (she only ate half the pasta dish) but complained of being overstuffed and uncomfortable for a good while after the meal. She's actually the one who suggested paleo to me, so she knows better, but can't seem to put it into practice.

    The other day, I was down spot-scrubbing the floor along the edges and in the corners. In a squat position. After first moving things out of the way to clear the floor. I had no soreness afterwards.

    I can do full pushups without any assistance from my knees. They're not exactly pretty, but still, it's something I couldn't do a year ago.

    Don't carbs burn hotter, or something? I can get cold in the house if I'm too low carb.

    uhm? joke right?

    The small calorie or gram calorie approximates the energy needed to increase the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 C. This is about 4.2 joules.

    doesnt matter what you burn, it isnt going to create more than 4.2 joules

    Doesn't this assume that your body is processing calories from fat and calories from carbs in more or less the same manner, and extracting all the available energy from both?

    I'm not going to lie, I have no idea if what I said earlier is correct or not, but what you said seems to be rather like "calories in, calories out". Isn't it possible that the difference in the way your body processes the two types of fuel could include a difference in heat? It won't create more than 4.2 joules, but they both could create less and still have a difference.

    Maybe my perception of temperature is different since I spent a year on a subtropical island, but I feel like my hands are more consistently cold than they used to be. Maybe I spend too much time sitting around. Maybe I've lost insulation along with those forty pounds.

    The more I think about it, though, I'm probably just aware of it more because people here mention that being fixed for them, and it isn't for me. I can remember sitting at my old job with cold hands, like I did today.

    In summary, I'm probably full of crap, but I'm not convinced you are necessarily correct either.
