I'm posting here because I often feel cold. It's an inner-cold, like my core is not getting as warm as it is supposed to. My lips even turn purple! I live in Texas where it is almost always very warm, or hot. I could be iron deficient, but I had this problem even when I was supplementing my iron, and it was "in normal range." I'm not cold when I'm in direct sunlight or anything, but for example..I sat at my computer this morning with a cold-ish glass of water, and it made me pretty chilly. It's gotta be no cooler than 70 in the house.
Any insight would be helpful.
I get plenty of sleep ( always 8+hrs )
I drink appx. 2 liters of water per day, usually more..
My fruits are ripe.
I've been on this diet for 2 weeks only. I come from what I thought was a pretty healthy diet ( not SAD ), but one that did include animal products.
I have no diagnosed health issues except for this great one: Vulvar Vestibulitis .
Thank you in advance!
I get like this sometimes too (not so severe but I do get cold after eating cold things all day, lips don't turn blue but ill sit at my computer desk and be freezing). I find a cup of delicious tea helps. If you avoid caffeine there are plenty of non-caffeinated or herbal teas to choose from. This really helps me. Not technically 100% raw, but sometimes we need to deviate to help ourselves. Also try, when you're cold, to go for a short walk, or do a small jig by your desk to get your blood pumping. Hope that helps!
