Feeling Cold on Atkins

I am freezing when I am low-carbing. Probably perfect for hot summer months. Anyone else feels cold on low-carb?

I was just saying this the other day!! I was telling my family how cold i have been the last two weeks, when they are all perfectly warm I've been freezing!!! I figured it had something to do with burning fat?

I have been low carbing for 3 months, before I was always hot!! Now I freeze all the time, especially at work. My coworks are not only amazed at the weight lose but how I am always cold now instead of hot!!

It's the metabolic nature of burning fat - as long as you are in calorie deficit you should find your basal body temperature a bit lower and will feel cold quicker ad stay cold longer upon getting a chill. It's a good sign when you're trying to lose weight.

All I can say to that is "PRAISE GOD!!" I am always hot and I hate summer so bad. Maybe this summer I will not sweat so bad. A girl can always hope.

In the past, I was always hot and I hated summer. Now that I'm consistently low carbing, that's never the case. I assumed it was because my body was no longer storing excess fluids as they did in my carby days. I had this same coolness when taking diuretics (again back in my carby days). LC seems to be a natural diuretic for me despite the fact that (as my husband says) I "like a little food with my salt."

Is being cold not a symptom of being in ketosis?

I'm the same way, and I'm VERY cold at bedtime. Sometimes I go to sleep with my clothes, robe, and fuzzy socks on. I wake up hot in the middle of the night, though, for whatever reason. Maybe all the clothes and blankets, haha.
