30 Bananas a Day!

I am still trying with all my might to do this lifestyle but now it is fall where i am (love me some apples!) and iys gettig cold! My question is what do you do to keep yourself warm in the winter on this lifestyle. I know some of you might say "wear more clothes" but that doesnt help me. I get cold very easily and its very unplwasant. Any suggestion help tremendously!

Whenever I start getting cold in the winter, I try to kick up my caloric intake a bit.  Extra calories from fruit easily convert into body heat.  It can be difficult to eat a lot of food in the winter as variety and quality of produce is at it's lowest, but it works.

Derp. Bart, you're a genius.

It helps me to get outside a lot during the fall to acclimate to the cold.  And I also make an effort to make sure I'm not eating fruit out of the fridge, making sure it's room temperature.  Also getting more sleep in the winter helps me stay warm - if I'm tired I'm colder.  And of course moving keeps you warm, a little yoga in the morning when you first wake up can go a long way. 

In my case, physical activity. Running, push ups, you name it, you don't need to do a lot. Just staying active all day. Upping the caloric intake helps too!

i'm seriously considering buying one of those sleeping bags with arms and legs and wearing it when im home LOL 

Hot liquids are a good thing... Hot lemon water and herbal tea... Man, I've been pounding the heck out of hot apple cider lately. No, it's not raw, but its hot and sugary. And in season.

all of the above. quick, 2-minute hot showers help warm me up quick. If it's bedtime, I'll put as many layers as I can and jump under the covers. If I'm just hanging out at home, I usually wear a jacket/sweatshirt at all times

I HATE the cold lol!

Gimme sunshine and warmth ANY DAY.

Yeah I can handle cold better than ever before cos Im healthier but like other areas in my life I just can't hack having second best when I can have the best.

Funny thing is that ice cold beer and ice cream sales don't go down that much in the middle of winter...

durduraGood quality socks.hot apple or pearcider. Pay money go to warm places to break up winters long duration. Then not so bad and can enjoy winers beauty. r

Personally, I've been able to tolerate cold better now that I've been vegan for 4+ years. Also, if I feel like it's going to be a cold winter I start doing the hot/cold shower. After you're done, switch the water from all the way cold to hot hot a few times. Wait til you get completely cold or completely hot before switching it to the other temp. It takes some getting used to, but it helps big time.

I agree with the higher calorie content. Most people who live in cold climates put on winter weight on purpose though they mostly use fatty foods.

I've also been known to stand in a bikini in the sunshine surrounded by snow... And when I say stand I mean doing jumping jacks.

Wow great responses! Thank you all so much :)

extra cals, warm up quick with a few jumping jacks and push ups, find comfy clothing that keeps you warmer like really good long under wear, warm showers and warm water for quick warm ups too.
