    i was wondering how you came upon drinking ice water after CT. I am curious as the biologic mechanism to the benefit and the impedance of drinking cold water.

    Yes, I don't understand the ice water - I thought we were supposed to be cooling the skin but keeping the core warm?

    I believe you're actually supposed to drink it directly BEFORE CT. It helps gets your body into "must keep warm" mode.

    In the original protocol, it was drink ice water prior to CT. In the quick start manual, it says drink after. I'm confused too so I drink 8 oz before and 8 oz after, ha, ha.

    I remember him saying he drinks it as he gets in or right before. Basically, convincing your entire body it is in harmony with getting cold.

    It does say after in the quick start guide! That's an error. It's before.

    ok I thought it was before, but having read the quick start guide I stared drinking it after.

    We need to raise the temp of the water because of central receptors wiring to hypothalamus.......so it means we burn calories to raise the temp of the water.
