There have been many posts regarding low body temps due to thyroid disfunction so I started thinking...
Would I be somewhat correct in my assumption that for every degree of body temp lower than ideal that we leave a lot of calories on the table so to speak?
Would this formula be somewhat correct as general rule of thumb?
Body Weight in Kg = BW
Degrees of waking basal body temp less than ideal= TD
Calories burned deficit= CD
In my case my TD is 2.3. My BW is 105.9. Does that mean I burn 243 calories per day less than someone with identical mass and an ideal body temp?
I do realize that there are many variables that would alter the basic calorie formula, but I'm, figuring that our bodies are supposedly 61% water and the other materials aren't too far from the same density.
