Hi, i have noticed that it took me a while to feel not cold while on raw. This is summer but at work we have air conditioning. I need to dress like a bear. I seem to be better now.
I wonder if this is only the fact loosing weight or something more such detoxing, etc...
Please share your experience.

I know what you mean, at work I freeze everyday. I keep a sweater in my desk as well as socks. When I wear sandals my feet freeze, and my hands are like ice. Yesterday, one of the guys had the air on 65 degrees! Even at 70 degrees I'm still cold. When they see me with my sweater on, they say how can you wear that sweater, it's so hot in here. (??) I think they're crazy? I love to take breaks and go outside just to warm up. I don't know if it's because of eating raw foods or not, I've been eating mostly raw for about a year. I'm fairly thin now so that might have something to do with it too.

In the earlier days of going/being raw, yes I did experience the chilly-willies but now, I'm pretty stable with temps. Even before raw, I'd ALWAYS be cold (due to having low blood and iron) and again, when I first went raw I was cold a lot. Many have experienced this so I think it's quite common as your body goes through adjustments and yes, as it cleanses. But most have also reported that after a while, it's no longer that way.

Me, me, me!!! I live in an area that is over 105 degrees on a daily basis. Yet, I caryy a sweater with me where ever I go. The AC in the stores are just to cold for me! At home I keep my temp. at 80 and everyone else think that is too high. I can sit in the yard at that temp. with a green smoothie and that is the right temp. for me!

I'm always cold at work--but I work at a gym, so it's expected to be cold in there :p
I do notice that I love being warmer, though. Even in summertime! I was in Palm Springs a few weeks ago, and I loved the fact that at 9 o clock at night, I could walk out of a freezing air conditioned building and be greeted by warm air...ahhhh :)

The office that I'm temping in is in a computer-related field so the AC is on ALL day and it's freezing!!! I finally learned and brought a sweater, and wore a jacket yesterday. People were laughing at me, but I just smiled and watched them eat their fast food and I knew that I was cold for my own health :D

Aloha Raw Angel Mommy... yes I went thru a MAJOR FREEEEEZing period! It lasted several weeks - but it seems to have balanced out. It was during the first and second months that I was raw - now I'm at month 4 and I'm warmer - of course it is summer ... so maybe the weather is just warmer too :o !!! lol... good luck! :D

Yes, I feel chllled on raw in the Winterttime.
It's pure BLISS in the summerttime, though!!
It's been nice the last few days - it's been so hot. I'd be surprised when my husband would complain about it. He's sweating and I feel fine :)

Ah, thank you for all the replies, this is so interesting to read that i am not alone. I know about the hot weather. I would just be so hot on summer and just needed air conditioning, now i feel so comfortable without it. I hope, i will be ok during our winter, for it can get very cold where i am from.
Maybe this is all of those tropical fruits that i eat too, lol...
I guess we will eat tone of pumpkin this fall, apparently that the potassium in them help to keep warm.
