Hey guys, I’m having trouble raising my morning temperature. Since reading both Diet Recovery 2 and Eat for Heat, I’ve been pretty much eating anything I want. My lowest temperature is always morning. My temperatures range from 36. – 36.5, never going above 36.5. I always aim to have a big carby breakfast (French toast, pancakes, rice etc.) which usually raises my temperature to 37. but then within 20 minutes or so it falls back down to low 36. I generally don’t have an issue later in the evening, however my temperatures before bed are always below 36.8, lowest being 36. Should I be aiming for higher temperatures before bed as well? I’ve been eating what I want for roughly a month or so now, maybe more and I’m still struggling to raise my morning temperatures. Any ideas? ThanksJuly 5, 2013 at 7:46 pm #7267LindaParticipant
I can’t answer your questions. Just wanted you to know I am stuck too. My morning temps have been 97.6 or 7 for 3 months. I can’t stand the idea of eating more food right now. I don’t want to eat a lot in the summer. I don’t even know where my night temps should be. With all this fat around my belly I would like to see some progress.July 5, 2013 at 9:25 pm #7284hazmattParticipant
not to hate on the thermometer method, but I don’t think its as important as how you feel and how much energy you have. it took me forever to raise my metabolism, but the most effective thing for me was eating more frequently throughout the day, at least three square meals, and getting tons of sleep. how are you all faring in those categories?July 6, 2013 at 3:26 am #7317jax68Participant
I’ve been doing this for a while and I have raised my temp from 36.1 to averaging around 36.5. It’s dropped a bit for some reason over the past couple of weeks. I’m trying not to get too obsessed about it and concentrating more on how I feel, which is a lot better. I think if I really got stuck into all the sugars and starches etc it would raise the temp up but not sure If i could stomach much more food to be honestJuly 6, 2013 at 9:00 am #7327LindaParticipant
I don’t feel better. I still wake up 3 times every night. I don’t have the energy you all talk about and this extra weight is uncomfortable. For the last 5 years I was thin because of the dumb diet I was on. Then it started coming gradually on. Then I gained a whole bunch pretty quickly when I started eat for heat. I’m not used to being so heavy even tho I was before the diet. It felt so freeing to be thin. Now I want to feel good. I want to be the weight I am supposed to be and I want to get back to exercise. So that’s why I feel stuck. Plus I have very little clothes I can wear.July 6, 2013 at 4:46 pm #7399
From reading around the forum, I think I’ll see if drinking less will help raise temperatures. I’m curious as to what the temperature should be before bed, should we be aiming for 36.8-37? So maybe limiting liquids and having something before bed might help. I’ll continue to test and see what happens. In response to hazmatt, I’m always pretty tired, I average around 8-9 hours sleep each night.July 6, 2013 at 7:05 pm #7410patch87Participant
I’m beginning to think that the factors combinations is too wide to obtain an unique answer. Too many variables are in game!
I think that Understood the concept our unconscious will know how to manage it in the right way, if we think too much about it we begin to fall in an inextricable labyrint. If we fall in a perfectionist mentality, well we are in the same situation in which we are when we dieted. I don’t know how to express it better. I understand that if someone had an eating disorder his body cues can be misleading, but is also true that an eating disorder is connected to perfectionist mentality… I suffer of OCD, and eating disorders have lot in common, I undestood that if we don’t break the circle everything is potentially an obsession in which we can fall, so it changed the cover, but if the content is equal, nothing really changed. Yeah, my english sucks, maybe it is elementary, but I hope to have expressed well my thoughts.July 17, 2013 at 7:38 am #9230
Tried drinking less, morning temperatures are still the same between 36.2 and 36.4. I’ve found the less I drink, the more I feel I need to urinate. I’ve been watching the color of my urine and it always has some color to it, even if I urinate twice within an hour. I’m not sure what else to try to raise my temperatures. Does any one have any ideas or similar experiences?July 17, 2013 at 9:33 am #9233FinngarianParticipant
If I get poor sleep for one reason or another, it won’t matter how much I eat, I will be freezing. I’ve been doing pretty well with eating and having good temperatures but the other day I didn’t eat enough, and I did a lot of physical work that day. That night I slept horribly and was up at 5 am for the day. I made sure to eat a LOT that day, but by bedtime my feet were freezing and didn’t warm up until this morning! My temp was up nearly a whole degree after that. Also when I am really anxious about something, my hands and feet will be cold. Do any of these situations sound like they apply to you?July 18, 2013 at 6:44 am #9375
Thanks for your reply Finngarian, I never really feel that cold. I think the issue could be sleep related, because no matter how much sleep I get I never wake up feeling that refreshed even though I always get at least 8 hours sleep. I’m just getting slightly frustrated with my morning temperature as it’s never above 36.5 and I’m not sure what else to change/try. I’ve tried going to bed earlier but I can never get to sleep and end up lying in bed for hours. I think my body is just used to late nights. Could it be possible that this is causing my progress to stall?
