Why the high fat/high protein meal and ice cold water prior to CT?

    Sorry if this has been answered already. I've searched the blog, comments, and forum.

    Why the high fat/high protein meal and the ice cold water prior to CT?

    I've only CT'd for about a week, and I've followed all instructions well. Just prior to getting in, I eat a meal of fish, CO manna, and a huge glass of ice water. My CT sessions, all around 30 mins @ 50-55 degrees, have actually been pleasant. No shivering, etc.

    However, I was in a hotel this week and brought all my CT supplies (thermometer, huge plastic bags to haul ice from the ice machine, ipod). I actually forgot (forgot!!!) to eat my evening meal. I just wasn't hungry! And I forgot about drinking the water. So I just hopped in, and I shivered like a maniac the whole time and afterwards for about an hour. This particular CT session really threw me for a loop, as it took so long to recover..

    Is it because the body has to warm up the ice water, plus digesting the meal, so your body temp rises so you won't go into a hypothermic state?
