Hey folks. Whenever I fast, I feel cold. Does anyone else experience this? Is there anything that can be done to remedy it?
I've always become cold very easily, and attribute it to poor circulation. However, this is unexpected, and definitely unwanted.
BTW, when fasting, I wear the same clothes and am in the same environment as when I'm not fasting.
I usually fast for 8-20 hours. For example, I finished eating at 9pm last night, and probably won't eat again until 4-6pm today. During a fast, I consume nothing but water.
It's rare that I fast more than once a week. I try not to feast before a fast. After fasting, I usually eat ~25% extra food for that meal.
I'm male, 6'1", 160lbs, lean, and athletic, with 9-10% body fat, according to the Navy SEAL body fat calculator: http://fitness.bizcalcs.com/Calculator.asp?Calc=Body-Fat-Navy
