Weight Loss Success through Thermal Dieting

Submitted by on December 22, 2010 – 1:05 amNo Comment



At long last, a positive aspect about the frosty temps which have managed to grip several nations – all that shivering can aid in weight loss.

T. Ferris who has penned down the best seller ‘The 4-Hour Workweek” states that our bodies want to sustain a balanced state of 98.6 degree. He firmly believes & endorses such form of thermal dieting wherein on making our bodies cold, they would be doing whatever possible for reverting back to metabolic equilibrium by burning calories – thus heat equivalent to calories.

The writer is well-known for his sessions on ways of manipulating our bodies to our gain. Hence, the wintry season could be used for weight loss as one such exemplar. Ferris states that individuals could melt around fifty percent additional calories when they exposure their bodies to sub-zero temperatures, that could push our bodies into working over-time.

Ferris stated that there is in fact a fat form known as BAT (brown adipose tissue) which coldness is capable of triggering that in fact generates heat & results in fats being burnt. His recommendation has been substantiated by science.

Even ex-NASA researcher cum tycoon R. Cronise states that thermal environment could be deployed for super-charging weight reduction. He has studied the impact of temperatures on astronaut groups & states that there is proof that iciness could don a major part in revving up an individual’s body metabolism. He adds that in environments as mild-ranging as sixty degrees, several of such individuals noted their metabolism rate boosted by nearly twenty percent.

However, Doctor D. Katz, a Prof. from Yale Univ. was cynical about such an approach & stated that in case the desperation for weight loss is that high then people must instead simply be exercising & watching their dietetic intake. He even cautions that being exposed to intense cold, particularly via icy bath can be causal to complication among individuals having heart conditions or also be capable of inducing erratic heart rhythms among those in risk. Even the promoter of thermal dieting has mentioned in his writing that every reader must firstly seek consultation from a doctor prior to trying any of such methods.

Thermal Dieting – Chug Down Icy Water, Forego those Sweaters

Cronise whose personal experiences often involved several struggles with weight loss via conventional diets & exercising regimes states that on reaching twelve weeks every effort finally rebounded to beginning stages. Hence, he included a thermal aspect & trebled his weight reduction rate, shedding thirty pounds within 6 weeks.

He believes that even miniscule alterations would be working great. Also simply intake of icy water the foremost thing on waking up at dawn could be activating metabolism. He even advices to carry that jumper rather than donning it.

Here are other pointers pertinent to thermal dieting that could be tried from home.

  • Placing ice-pack on the backside of the neck & on upper-trunk for thirty minutes when one reads or watches television for boosting metabolism.
  • Taking cool shower ideally for thirty minutes for garnering max gains though briefer time period too could be helpful.
  • For an edited version, eventually lowering temperatures in the showers till sixty-eight degrees over the span of 5 minutes and then standing in the cool flow for 2-3 minutes at a shot prior to getting off.
  • Instantaneously on awakening, begin intake of icy water & continually sip it all through the day.
  • Going for chilly walk though ensure covering hand, foot, ear & head areas in summer workout clothes. Take into consideration to work up to such form of walking by eventually shedding layering of clothes. Ensure carrying your jacket along in case you need to warm-up must you get quite chilly.
