Your body creates heat when you digest food. Firstly, your body creates heat when it digests food. So on a Fast Day when you’re eating less, you’re not generating that ‘central heating.’ Also, your body is very good at protecting your vital organs, which means if you’re not eating as much, it may sense that and prioritize them, so your extremities (hands and feet) cool down.

Dutch research suggest cool temperatures can help with weight loss. The good news, is that your body actually burns calories maintaining a stable temperature, so you’re likely to be using energy that way. This fascinating Dutch research even suggests that turning down the central heating could help us stay slim.

"Having the central heating on may be contributing to our ballooning waistlines, Dutch researchers suggest.

They say higher temperatures in homes, offices and hospitals provide more comfort, but mean bodies no longer need to burn extra calories to keep warm.

A Maastricht University Medical Centre group says 19C (66F) is sufficient to provide the right balance.”

How fasting burns fat cells and activates brown adipose tissue (BAT).

When you are in a fasted state, it means your body is burning fat. When going through a fast your body will activate brown dispose tissue. It is brown because it is mitochondrial dense. White fat is not good.

Blood rushes away from muscle tissue to brown fat, brown fat seeks white fat. Woo hoo.

When you fast, especially in the beginning your core body temperate will decrease.

This Nature study took a look at fasting mice and found white adipose tissue converted to brown fat. What you are feeling is the effect of fat migrating in the body.

Another reason why you are cold during a fast, Orexin; this is a neurotransmitter. Credit to Thomas DeLauer for this research A study found fasted mice with suppressed levels of orexin had a lower body temperature. What can you do? Caffeine has been shown to increase levels of orexin. Everyone has different levels of orexin which can explain why some get cold and others don’t. Coffee would be a great option to have during a fast.

Additional solutions to feeling cold when fasting.

Vitamin B1 in the form of nutritional yeast may help. Other keto sources of B1 are salmon, squash and asparagus.
