Cold, Chilly, Freezing, Brr....


Recommended Posts

All,

I'm new to the Whole 30 and my family is on the third day. So far things are going swimmingly and I'm beginning to question the purpose of having brownies every night (a common occurrence pre-whole 30). Seriously. What were we thinking?!

That said, I'm wondering if there's an explanation for my feeling very cold. I generally am not a chilly sort, but this is clearly not a cold or too much AC etc. Has anyone else run into this? Is there an explanation for it? I'm also quite nauseous when eating, but I'm seeing lots of questions and answers about that in other posts. I'll grab a sweater and liberally apply peppermint tea in the meantime!

Thanks for your thoughts!

It could be because your carb intake dropped significantly, maybe even too much. Carb consumption is very closely linked to thyroid function, which controls body temperature (and metabolism, and other stuff). So going too low can mess with that, and slow everything down.

How's your carb intake? Are you eating starchy veggies?

No starchy veg - perhaps that's it. Cauliflower is on the docket for tonight. Does that count? Otherwise, most carbs have been coming from fruit and veg (broccoli, snow peas, peppers, spinach and so forth). Sweet potatoes for tomorrow! I also upped the hot tea intake so I'm attacking from all angles!

Meredith--look at your tea boxes too, I saw here yesterday that some tea has SOY lecithin in it!! I checked at home and two of my four boxes were guilty!!!!! I googled it and they do it to keep the ingredients from separating. Here I thought that's what the tea bag was for. :wacko:
