Of all the changes with weigh lose this wasn’t one I would have predicted. Things I did expect:
📣weight loss - 61 pounds off ✔️
📣lower BP - from 170/100 to 126/78✔️
📣Being taken more seriously by doctor - yep the same things I said a year ago no longer being blown off, got a referral for an ultrasound and to see a rheumatologist ✔️
What I didn’t see coming 👀???
🌡 my body temperature
Readings before weight loss
96.6 and 96.4
97.7 - 97.6 and 97.8
I am burning a degree hotter. I did the math and it means my body is using 2.6 kcalories more to heat my body. Not sure how quickly that number needs to be refreshed but based upon water being heated and cooled about 20mins is a general guess so about 140 kcal more per day.
Strangely enough I have started to adjust from 800 daily to 900 - 950 “ because it felt more comfortable”. Now there is science to justify it.
Officially a 🔥 Hottie 🔥 lol
