    Hi - I'm new to Keto (8 days in), new to the forum, and catching up on 2KD podcasts. So far so good, but I'm impatient and want keto-adaptation ASAP. I seem to be cold all the time. I know that it's cold outside, but even with warm clothes and a blanket, I am cold all the time, even indoors.
    Anyone else have this happen in the beginning?
    thanks all, happy to join the group.

    I was very very cold at first too. I started October 1st. It didn't help that I had recently also shaved most of my head. I would have to sleep with a hoodie and extra blankets.

    It got better, and I felt warmer if I ate some fat. Like if I noticed my hands were all of the sudden cold eating some pure fat helped.

    This won't make sense unless you understand low-carb diets. Here's how a low-carb diet is supposed to work. A person eats about 30g of carbs per day for a couple days. That's not a lot of carbs. That's like two slices of bread. The body burns through all those carbs. Now that it can't burn carbs, it starts to burn fat. When you burn fat, you lose weight. When the body burns fat, ketones end up in the urine. Low-carb dieters use ketone test strips ...
