I sure hope you figure it out because every woman I know claims they are cold all of the time no matter how many puddles of sweat are leaking from me at the time.
Maybe all women need portable heaters.
I was just researching for debra’s topic and came across this in reference to yours, it goes with a theory I’ve had…
That was interesting, Ronda.
It’s weird that they mention fit women having higher temperature settings. I feel like I’m more prone to feel cold on the days I work out, particularly if I both run and lift (so significant energy output). Not immediately, but several hours later. [/quote]
My theory was always that because women carried more fat and fat is less vascularized then muscle that this is why women tend to feel cold more often… thought this is disproven by the fat that most fat men are not prone to feeling cold.
I am begining to think that there isn’t any one certain thing that makes people run colder or hotter then others. Maybe it is as simple as having blood vessles closer to the surface allowing for more heat to escape.
All I know is that I was cold when I was fat and I am cold now that I am thinner…
