If there were a way to measure your metabolic rate or BAT before&after a cold treatment, people would be like-whoa!
I've been trying out some cold showers, and they aren't as miserable as I expected! Recovery time seems moderately improved, though there are co-factors. Metabolism may be somewhat higher, but that will probably need a longer period to be established. Hunger didn't increase as much as I expected.
If CT is proven to increase metabolism and longevity, I think it would be the first thing ever to do both? Usually they are seen as mutually exclusive, like CRON.
Thermogenex - Fuel the Burn He asks you to sign up, and the only email I ever got from that was a notification of a new blog post. He has a 'please donate' box off to the side, but from what I hear he's come up with a way to make some money (sponsors?, book?) so maybe he will start trying to attract more people to his site.
I've walked outside in the cold a few times, taken a few cold showers, just iced my thighs for 45 minutes...... also tried to sleep without covers most of last night. My inner thighs look better already, think this is all around a very healthy thing to do.
Well, this morning was about the fourth time I did a face dunk. I noticed something different today. The longer my face was submerged, the more 'pleasant' it became. I then showered with cooler water than I normally set it at, with a stepped decrease in the water temperature. I was in a hurry , so I did not languish in the step down in temperature. I did have time after the shower to sit for twenty minutes with an ice pack on my belly, and that was not bad either.
I want to read what Ray Cronise says about the steps to do CT as he sees it, but his articles at his website seem to promise that info, but not deliver it. Which article should I go to?

Otzi: you inspired me. I had to get rid of 3' of snow on my roof last weekend. Sunny. High 20s. So I got shoveling and before long peeled off my shirt. Good vitamin D dose, good cold air on lots of skin. The neighbors are ready to have me committed.
