I'm on an up day today and wearing my jacket at my desk at work. I'm cold all the time though since my thyroid decided to misbehave.

Not every time, but sometimes I'll get them. And with it being 100+ degrees outside, I am not nearly as hot as I "should" be when I'm outside. But I'm not freezing in the a/c either. Although we've set it higher so it doesn't have to work so hard, so it's warmer than normal.

I get the shivers and especially at night! OMGoodness, I have to pile quilts on if I sit still to watch tv.

Kimberly, the only time that I have not been cold was when I was going through full-blown meno. I would get hot in the middle of 32 below temps.

I'm still freezing on DDs and even on UDs before I eat. I warm up after I eat on both days, which isn't until 6-7pm on DDs and noon-1pm on UDs, so I spend a lot of time cold. It's been a blessing so far in this heat outdoors, but at work where they crank up the a/c, I'm the weird one with layers of sweaters/jackets on.

Me too! No more freezing DD. I hadn't even thought about it until I read your thread. I wonder what happened? I don't think it is the warmer weather as I was freezing when my family was saying I had the heat turned up to high and they were overheating in the house! Hmmm...

It sure was a "thing" for me and fairly obvious to others as I was bundled up in blankets most DD evenings. I think my body was just trying to conserve energy until the famine was over. It must have given up as I am toasty warm on DD's now. I really hope I don't jinx myself by going on about it.

I don't freeze as much as I used to but now sometimes on UD's I will sweat a lot and its extra strong for some reason (TMI I know!). I'm used to being cold but I'm enjoying it in 100 degree weather this summer. I'll probably complain more come October.

I was going to post asking the same thing. No cold days here for quite awhile now. Though if we go somewhere with the a/c turned low I still bring a sweater along. So glad I had it today at the restaurant or I would have been freezing (just ending a 40+ hour fast).

I have a question about this . I'm not criticizing the JUDDD plan at all , so let me just say that upfront -- but this is one of those questions in my mind...

Getting cold frequently one of the things that concerns me a bit, truly, about JUDDD. It happens on hcg p2, as well -- and according to a lot of so-called authorities, that signals a down regulation of the metabolism.

JUDDD, apparently, has an overall positive effect on the metabolism -- so is the down-regulation okay because it is only intermittent?

I got very concerned about the constant being cold on p2 -- the hcg supposedly protects against the starvation response in the body, but I am not so sure I entirely buy that (given my far-too-numerous experiences with it).

I know that JUDDD works from the principle that the body's stavation response doesn't kick in fully because if the up days -- but if so, why the being cold?

Again, really not trying to be contrarian -- I hope I can make JUDDD work for me at some point -- but this is on my mind.

I was constantly cold when I did LC years ago. At least with JUDDD it is every other day. And as time goes on I am less cold on DD's. It kind of comes and goes.

Mini, I am not sure what is going on with DD cold. I understand what you are saying. But, for me it happens in conjunction with really, really high energy. I go non-stop in my sweats sipping hot tea. I wish I understood metabolism better.

Ghost, what this means is (a) it does not happen to everyone, so don't panic, and (b) don't pack all of your sweaters away for the summer....just in case.

mini, I had the exact same concern but someone posted that the cold signifies the opposite: that you are burning fat.

it might be on one of the links I posted (post #12).

You know, it does seem that every time I lose weight, I start feeling colder than usual. This was back when I lost weight the first time I did low carb, and years before that with various types of other diets as well. Any time there's been some noticeable fat loss, I always start feeling really cold, but it usually stablized. For some reason, I'm still frequently cold on JUDDD especially on DDs but even on UDs before I eat.

Just googling fasting and lower temps... I found the following.

Fasting or Skipping Meals: You may also feel cold if you skip your meals often or fast frequently. When your calorie intake is reduced, the body tries to retain energy. This produces less body heat, thus dropping your body temperature. You will feel cold at night.

-----------------------------------------------------
The Health Benefits of Fasting | Serendip's Exchange

A second prescribed benefit of fasting is the healing process that begins in the body during a fast. During a fast energy is diverted away from the digestive system due to its lack of use and towards the metabolism and immune system. (6) The healing process during a fast is precipitated by the body's search for energy sources. Abnormal growths within the body, tumors and the like, do not have the full support of the body's supplies and therefore are more susceptible to autolysis. Furthermore, "production of protein for replacement of damaged cells (protein synthesis) occurs more efficiently because fewer 'mistakes' are made by the DNA/RNA genetic controls which govern this process." A higher efficiency in protein synthesis results in healthier cells, tissues and organs. (7) This is one reason that animals stop eating when they are wounded, and why humans lose hunger during influenza. Hunger has been proven absent in illnesses such as gastritis, tonsillitis and colds. (2) Therefore, when one is fasting, the person is consciously diverting energy from the digestive system to the immune system.

In addition, there is a reduction in core body temperature. This is a direct result of the slower metabolic rate and general bodily functions. Following a drop in blood sugar level and using the reserves of glucose found in liver glycogen, the basal metabolic rate (BMR) is reduced in order to conserve as much energy within the body as can be provided. (2) Growth hormones are also released during a fast, due to the greater efficiency in hormone production. (7)

Finally, the most scientifically proven advantage to fasting is the feeling of rejuvenation and extended life expectancy. Part of this phenomenon is caused by a number of the benefits mentioned above. A slower metabolic rate, more efficient protein production, an improved immune system, and the increased production of hormones contributes to this long-term benefit of fasting. In addition to the Human Growth Hormone that is released more frequently during a fast, an anti-aging hormone is also produced more efficiently. (7) "The only reliable way to extend the lifespan of a mammal is under-nutrition without malnutrition." (5) A study was performed on earthworms that demonstrated the extension of life due to fasting. The experiment was performed in the 1930s by isolating one worm and putting it on a cycle of fasting and feeding. The isolated worm outlasted its relatives by 19 generations, while still maintaining its youthful physiological traits. The worm was able to survive on its own tissue for months. Once the size of the worm began to decrease, the scientists would resume feeding it at which point it showed great vigor and energy. "The life-span extension of these worms was the equivalent of keeping a man alive for 600 to 700 years." (8)

In conclusion, it seems that there are many reasons to consider fasting as a benefit to one's health. The body rids itself of the toxins that have built up in our fat stores throughout the years. The body heals itself, repairs all the damaged organs during a fast. And finally there is good evidence to show that regulated fasting contributes to longer life. However, many doctors warn against fasting for extended periods of time without supervision. There are still many doctors today who deny all of these points and claim that fasting is detrimental to one's health and have evidence to back their statements. The idea of depriving a body of what society has come to view as so essential to our survival in order to heal continues to be a topic of controversy.

COLD!!!!

fasting may increase blood flow to adipose cells, helping them release fatty acids for eventual burning. Because of this, it may also cause vasoconstriction of the peripheral vasculature,
namely fingers and toes.

I have heard that about the cold meaning one is burning fat -- I'm not sure I entirely buy it, though. I do get cold when I am restricting calories a lot.

I am never cold on LC, interestingly enough -- and I have certainly burned fat quite successfully on that in the past.

When I first started with hcg, I had very high energy in p2 -- but that dropped off and was replaced with weakness and lethargy, which went hand in hand with freezing, too. Maybe it is the combination of low energy and cold that really signals trouble...??

Nancy,

Just clarifying, do you believe that our body temp is telling us it is time to stop the fast? I have understood that this is the process of conserving energy but did not know if this is a sign of crisis. So, it is possible that it may mean the opposite of what we have been believing?
