How do I determine if I'm Cold Adapted?

    Ok. Jack in the following Thread: http://forum.jackkruse.com/showthread.php?959-When-to-re-test&p=15678#post15678 you mentioned your temp should rise.

    prior to the reset my normal temp range was 96.6-97.6. I could never get my body temp anywhere close to *normal* 98.6. Now I'm always running hot. currently right now I'm running at 99.3! but I don't feel HOT, nor do I feel like I'm running a temperature. I do feel like my internal engine is on fire. Is this what you were referring to regarding temp rises?

    I can easily sit in a a 50degree bath w/ 3-bags of ice - for 1hr w/out a problem... some times I'll get the shivers the last 5mins -but they are getting less... and If I do get the shivers its only for 5-10mins; where before I'd be cold for a good hour afterwards. However sometimes I still feel cold.

    so am I cold adapted? or just on my way?

    I'd say it took me 6-8 weeks for the internal engine to fully turn on; Plus the body temp has been slowly rising... last week I was at my PCP and my Temp was 98.9! I've been doing Spot CT for the most part, w/3-4CT Baths w/ice a week (depending on the chaos within the house)

    try the same meal with a cold drink and see if you still burn up afterwards.... bone broth will do this to me every time. I now drink it lukewarm. Not so tasty though. Trying to wean myself off all my hot drinks.

    Per Jack's response to my question about when to re-test, he said to check core temperature before & after CT. A rise in body temp means cold-adapted.

    My results today:

    pre-CT: 97.8

    10 minutes into CT: 98.8

    20 minutes into CT: 99.1

    30 minutes into CT: 97.8

    40 minutes into CT: 98.1

    45 minutes, completion of CT: 98.0

    5 minutes after CT: 95.7

    10 minutes after CT: 93.7

    I definitely felt warmer in the tub for the first 20-25 minutes, then I felt colder (as usual at about that time). Interesting to see the body temp correlates with how I feel. And I always feel much cold in the few minutes after I get out of the tub, then I start to warm up.

  7. Sorry I know this is an Ask Jack but..... I wanted to throw in the fact that if you are taking T3 it will raise your temp. At least it has raised mine! Or is it the CT? A little of both????
