I'm only in my 2nd week, but am doing 5 x/week @ 50-55 degrees for 35 mins. I actually rather enjoy it and find it meditative to stay in the cold bath with all but my head, feet, and hands submerged. I've put together several 35-minute playlists, so I just lay there till the music is done.
I actually lost 5 lbs. last week. Not sure if it was due to the cold, but I found myself not nearly as hungry. I was able to eat just 2 meals a day: BAB (2-3 eggs, 4 pieces bacon, 3 sausage) and an early dinner of seafood and veggies. I was completely satisfied. So, not sure if it's just from the calorie reduction, or if the reduction was brought on by the cold...but I'm happy.
I'm going to continue with 5 x/week until I feel I'm cold-adapted. Currently, while I don't shiver a ton, I do feel extremely cold when I get out. Trying to work up to not warming up immediately: after towel-drying, just walking around the house, doing normal chores. I had been warming up under a blanket, but I think the longer I stay cold, the better.
I plan on adding back in my exercise, and I will do it prior to the CT baths.
