    Is anyone else frikkin COLD all the time since starting Primal?

    Shop Now
    I just seem to be super-sensitive to the cold recently - in the office, in the house (not so much when I am outside IN the cold, it is more inside)

    I just seem to be permanently chilled to the bone, it was like this in September too - it was 27 degrees in the office and the guy keeps putting the air con on - i'm llike - it's FREEZING!! (i do sit by the window too)

    Only after I got a little bedroom fun last night did I warm up to the point I was comfortable and that was with the heating on full blast regardless.

    I must just be cold blooded - either that or I was really built to live in the Bahamas?

    BBRRRRRRRR!!!!

    Although living in this doesn't help

    Oh god- office air con wars are the worst. It's so hard trying to be polite about it when all you want to do is scream 'ARE YOU FECKIN' NUTS?? IT'S FREEZING IN HERE!!!'

    I've always been very sensitive to the cold but perhaps have got a little worse as I've got older. I haven't a clue what's caused it.

    I don't tolerate cold very well, natural or AC. I have pretty much stopped using AC, even in Egypt, using it only when I can't get air flow any other way. But there is a difference between being cold from AC and being cold from natural air. Not sure I can describe why it is different but it is some how.

    Sometimes I have felt kind of chilled, but not always. I have wondered if avoidance of starches slows our metabolism from what it used to be. One thing I am fairly sure of is that having less fat on our bodies makes us feel the cold more, as we have less insulation, and most of us have less fat after being on PB for a while. Thinner people feel the cold more, I think.

    I'm the exact opposite. I've done nothing but constantly criticise everyone's remarks of "It's FREEZING!" and "Did you say that you're eating ice-cream to COOL OFF!?"

    I really have no idea what it is. I'm just extremely tolerant of the cold now, and I'm lovin' it!

    I usually tolerate the cold more than others actually.

    I'm purposely spewing out as much CO2 as possible in order to make an effort to warm up the planet.

    although boys - there is a difference between the COLD (dry, continental) and the DAMP (coastal, temperate)

    i just feel chilled to my bones...i never felt like this in France at -13 1000m high in the mountains?

    I have to constantly drink decaf coffee in order to stay warm. I just figured it was my hypothryoidism.

    Well it is bloody freezing over here atm!!
    But yeah, I have noticed I am colder than I used do be. The guy I work with sits at his desk in a tshirt and I am wearing my hoodie and wooly socks and I have a fan heater under my desk blowing warm air on me. It was 15c in our office the other day and he doesn't notice how COLD it is. Must be the bowl of cereal he eats every morning keeping him warm

    I have noticed that I warm up after eating my lunch. Anyone else get wamer after eating?
