Thanks @Polgara @OrsonKartt @Robbity and @serenity648 - it’s good to know I’m not alone!
My temperature is weird too, I seem to have a broken thermostat.
Due to low carb dieting or everytime?
A broken thermostat can be thyroid related thou. Have you been tested about your thyroid? It needs mentioning to your gp if not.
By all means, get your thyroid etc checked out- that sounds like sensible advice.
It might be OK though, provided there isn't some underlying medical issue: when I'm low-carbing and especially low-calorie-ing, I feel the cold much more easily and need to wear a light jacket for the air-con at work. I love it though: it's a cool, alert feeling.
I usually eat once a day low carb. So maybe because of that
From what I understand the heat our bodies generate is part of our total metabolic rate. No heat = lower metabolic rate. @CherryAA may confirm that better thou.
I'm no doctor, but everything I've read suggests that one of the ways your body tries to conserve weight when dieting is by shutting down " non essential" activities and thus reducing your base metabolic rate to match your intake. This is one of the prime reasons weight loss slows and one of the core reasons why so many diets attempt to "trick" your body into thinking its doesn't need to do it.
if you are feeling very cold and nothing else is wrong, then its a sign that that is what is happening to you.
I feel the cold a lot more when I am inactive, than I used to. I've (only) lost about 2 stone since diagnosis and am reasonably slim, but the main thing that I notice is how little I am eating compared to pre-diagnosis.
LCHF encourages me to eat less. Eating less shrinks the stomach which reinforces eating less. However I maintain my weight more or less eating (I estimate) about half of what I used to, or even less.
I have long suspected that one reason that you can eat huge amounts but not put on much weight is that the body doesn't bother to work too hard at absorbing food and also chucks a fair amount of heat away. Once you shut down on the sugars and stuff there is a lot less energy coming in so the body starts to work a lot harder. In times of famine people stayed healthy on a very restricted diet.
Once I start to exercise my body temperature comes right back up, so I am guessing that my BMR is turned down to save on the (internal) heating bills.
You may find that concentrating the food you do it into bigger meals less frequently enables you to start eating a bit more at each meal without actually putting it back .. It seems that if you leave enough time between meals to enable your insulin levels back to base then that also helps your metabolism to recover.
Processing food increases the bmr but bmr never reaches a high enough level to be able to counteract all the food overeaten.
That is only part of a broken metabolic system problem.
Type2 is a metabolic disease.
You would first have to fix type2 then your broken system would hopefully comply thereafter.
A fully functioning metabolic system wouldnt allow high bgs.
