I’ve pondered testing morning body temperature for a while but have never made the jump. Christian Thibaudeau’s recent Cool Tip got me thinking about it again. A few days ago I even stopped in the grocery store pharmacy to check out oral digital thermometers.
Anyone have any experience with this they’d like to share?
In case you missed the Cool Tip, here is an excerpt from one of Christian’s articles:[quote]
Body temperature: Oral temperature taken in the morning can clue us in on the metabolic state of the body. Each decrease in temperature of one degree indicates a reduction of 5-10% of the metabolic rate. If that occurs, it’s time for a few days of increased caloric consumption until the value returns to normal (established baseline).
