To answer someone's question from earlier, Quelson had mentioned CT and it stands for Cold Thermogenesis. Essentially it is a practice of taking cold showers or baths. When you shower at any tempature lower than body tempature, you activate your BAT or Brown Adipose Tissue. We are born with it, babies use it to stay warm, and as we are able to keep active physically, our body's composition loses it. By swimming or bathing in cold water, some people, Quelson included, go as low as 32 degrees, our body will regenerate it. BAT employs NST Non-Shivering Thermogenesis to produce heat and the process does use a certain number of calories in the process, and like exercise the benefits outlast the calorie burn and the bath/shower. In addition to burning calories, people report better sleep, better skin tone, better muscle pain management/ recovery, and more.
Follow the benefits in these tow threads: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread50560.html ; http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread56730.html . The first has many good guidelines for starting CT and the second is the current thread that disallows debate on two proponents, Jack Kruse and Ray Cronise who both blog on it and have discussion threads.
