Losing weight with CT when that is not ideal

    I am an athlete that needs to gain some weight for my sport (10-12 lbs) however since starting CT just over one month ago I have been losing weight despite eating more food. My CT consists of 30-45 mins ice baths @50-55F at least 4 times per week, cold showers daily and wearing only a shirt during winter.*

    I eat 90% primal which includes a lot of sweet potatoes + vegetables and grass fed animal products (including butter + eggs). My weight was stable before starting CT. I try to take advantage of the post workout window to eat most of my carbs for the day and am eating at least 20% more carbs than I was pre-CT. I lift 4 times per week and do sport specific training 4 times per week. Any help is much appreciated.

    First you need a body comp to find out the type of weight you have lost. Then work out tissue specifics... gain 10-12lbs of muscle or fat ? or lose fat, gain 10-12lbs of muscle ?

    Has CT improved performance ? If not, consider stopping.
