Tim Ferriss, author of the 4 Hour Body has 4 places to start if you want to use cold for fat loss. Check out his book here http://fourhourbody.com/
- Consume at least 18 fl oz of ice cold water on an empty stomach immediately upon waking. In at least 2 studies this water consumption has been shown to increase metabolic rate by 24-30%, though 1 study did show a lower effect of 4.5%.
- Take 5-10 minute cold showers before breakfast and/or before bed. Use hot water for 1-2 minutes then step out of the water range and apply shampoo and soap to your hair and face. Turn the water to pure cold and rise. Then turn around and focus the water on your lower neck and upper back.
- If you are impatient and can tolerate more, take 20 minute cold baths that induce shivering. (Like all of Tim’s ideas, check with your Doctor before trying something this extreme!)
- Place an ice pack on the back of your neck and upper back. For 20-30 minutes. He places a towel on his sofa and does it while watching a film or writing.
Now, Tim wrote his 4 tips before the Polar Vortex Vest® was invented and we think Tim would probably prefer to do away with the ice bags. Why? You ask. Well we followed these tips and wound up trashing our sofa as the ice melted. This is one of the reasons why we invented the vest. How can we get cold to our core quickly and easily without making a mess! Burn up to 32% more calories and up to 58% more fat now!
