Hi, I’ve been trying eating for heat for a little over 6 months now. Probably not perfectly, but eating more, incorporating carbs, more salt ,low water, snacking etc I didn’t really monitor my temp from the beginning, but it’s now a fairly steady 36.8 degree C/ 98F when I wake up in the morning. But I still get icy cold hands and feet. I’m wondering if I actually have a circulation problem as I also get dizzy standing up quite a lot; and have blurry eyesight. Any advice? :)September 8, 2013 at 5:25 pm #12471AshleyParticipant
Since your metabolism has changed, make sure you are getting enough water now. Was a mistake I made. Not enough water made me drowsy just like not enough sugar/salt did before. I didn’t recognize my thirst anymore (except when I had exersized hard, been in the heat etc, but the quieter thirst, I didn’t know what it was lol!).

Increasing sugar and salt, especially sugar, was a huge help with for me when confronted with the same problems. Orange juice with a pinch of salt was especially helpful.September 9, 2013 at 5:53 pm #12504crinklyParticipant
blurry eyesight sounds worrying, I would get that checked out by an optometristSeptember 9, 2013 at 6:09 pm #12506patch87Participant
Hi cazzie, give a look at this http://180degreehealth.com/2013/04/hot-water-vs-cold-water-thermogenesis.
How is you sleep? How much do you sleep? What is the quality of your sleep?
Do you do some exercise? Exercise could have some anti-stress effect. Do you mix salt, sugar, starch in your meals and snacks? It could help you. ;)
Anyway you did really important progress! :DSeptember 10, 2013 at 5:19 pm #12532
Hi, thanks for your replies :) I will have a go with the orange juice and salt. I should point out that I had these symptoms before I started eating for heat – but I expected that my cold hands/feet would have gone my now – and so am beginning to wonder if it could be something else.
Patch – sleep situation is that I mostly sleep like a log; and will easily sleep 9-10 hours if I don’t have to get up. Exercise – I am just bringing it back in now a bit more, mostly yoga and some resistance exercise, plus some gentle walking and cycling.
Will keep going anyway :)September 10, 2013 at 6:27 pm #12536patch87Participant
Well Cazzie, I think it’s all very good. Try something of the advices within the post I linked you before. :)September 11, 2013 at 6:23 pm #12563
Thanks Patch – I’d read the link before but forgotten most of it. A timely reminder as the seasons change – will dust off my hot water bottle :)
