    Cold weather = faster exhaustion?

    It just got cold around here and I stopped by my usual playground for a typical workout, only to find that I maxed out on pretty much everything much faster than normal. Is it the cold?
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Absolutely. It takes energy to stay warm. I almost drown myself in the beginning of the summer trying to swim in the cold May Lake as if it was the warm August lake.

    Oh, thanks for the quick reply. I guess I'll add more sweet potato to my diet to stay warm in the winter. Roots in the winter, right folks?

    There should always be more sweet potatoes anyway.

    Always more? That might not end well!

    I've had my best weight loss eating some starchy stuffs.

    One week my weight loss was 3 pounds. I think it might have had something to do with my weight training, but I wasn't afraid of sweet potatoes that week.

    Just don't be carbophobic, TBH there's a lot of talk about the mythical KETOSIS diet which never worked for me.

    Oh, right. No, I don't always stay low carb. I'll do it for a few days, then hit the sweet potatoes again. I love the white and purple ones from the asian/russian market.

    It's pure fat that keeps me warm. Bacon and other forms of pig.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Bundling up sounds worth trying. But my workouts are normally too explosive and short-lived to actually warm up much. I don't start sweating until about the end of it all. But I guess that would be my cue to remove said layer of clothing, huh?
