What is CT? What is the prescription?

    I'm loving Kruse's insights, and completed a leptin reset last year, but I can't seem to find a summary of what CT is, and what the guidelines are?

    Could somebody please point me in the right direction, as this sounds really interesting.

    Many thanks,

    Go read this: http://jackkruse.com/cold-thermogenesis-two/

    I love this quote- When cold is perceived by skin cold receptors over two weeks leptin is liberated from fat cells in massive quantities. Cold empties fats stores like like a fire empties a movie theater.

    Start out by immersing your face in cold water (50- 55F) and then progress to cold showers and cold baths. There is a lot of info in all the forum threads'

    Read, read read!

    In a nutshell you need to work your way up to 50-55 degree baths. 30 to 40 minutes in the cold water bath is optimal. Dr. Kruse does up to 3 hours. I read somewhere that 15 minutes at 55 degrees is the equivalent of running for 60 minutes.

    It sounds a lot harder than it is. I'm a wimp, and I worked my way up to 20 mins at 55 degrees in about 10 days. The link that @JeffieJoe gave you will explain it a lot better than I did. :p

    Ok, I've read the links and I'm now working through the comments, as I think there cold be some gems hidden away in there.

    But one question, there's a lot of discussion omega 3 and 6; do I need to increase the 6:3 ratio,,or increase the omega 3 ratio as is more generally supported with paleo?
