    Being cold

    Shop Now
    While outside in the cold and your body is working hard to stay warm, what are you burning, fats or carbs?

    I second this. Very interesting stuff. Brown adipose tissue is a special type of fat that essentially burns regular fat (maybe carbs too, not sure about that) to produce heat. More cold exposure increases your ability to do this. Babies and rodents are known for this but adults can do it too.

    I love the chill of winter and the thermogenesis! Makes you feel alive, as the old folks used to say.

    Cant wait to read the posts on this, I thought I'd have a hard time readjusting to the cold after living down south for 8 years but im not. Yesterday while shopping I strolled in jeans and a tee while everyone else had heavy jackets / winter clothing on and wondered the same topic. The day before that shorts and a tee, which earned me the 'where's your jacket' line repeatedly.

    I did a 4 mile walk this morning in shorts and a light long sleeve shirt. The cold felt brisk but good, only problem was the ice cold toes from my vibrams.

    Temperature extremes never really bothered me, but it will be interesting to see how my first primal winter goes!

    Did a bit of research on CT, the benefits look outstanding. I will be working cold showers into my life and will be taking advantage of this upcoming New York winter.

    Care to discuss disclose some cold tolerance theory ?
    I take the cold some days, and can't stand it others.
    I haven't quite been diet primal consistently though.
    And I don't see the pattern between good and bad days, diet or cold tolerance wise.

    Is primal - higher fat, lower carb, the connection?
    or am I confusing the "sugars" bunch and higher metabolism / body temp group?

    did I miss a chapter in the blueprint ?
