After reading "Cold Therapy, Hot Body" here on T Nation I was intrigued as to how I can add this to my fat loss arsenal.
Since I am approaching the last hurdle in relation to fat loss. I need every "edge" I can get.
Has anyone had experience with cold therapy/cold thermogenesis in regards to fat loss and overall body composition?
The benefits that are listed are long but the main one that struck me was Increased brown fat.
Apparently brown fat helps us stay lean and can be increased through cold therapy. But I have also read that to reduce fat you should increase blood flow to fatty areas ? Would it not be better to sit in a sauna as opposed to an ice bath ?
I am thinking of just taking a quick 60 degree shower and standing outside in the 50 degree cold after for 10 minutes since I don't want to keep buying ice for a bath.
Tim Ferriss also preaches claiming you can burn fat 3 times faster.
