CT protocol questions

Ok, I just want a practical disscussion about cold-thermogenesis. I don't want a debate about Dr. Kruse, or that I'm stupid for doing this or any other snarky comments that seem to be the norm around here lately.

So far I've done 3 days of full immersion in about 52 deg water. I can sit in there for about 20-30 min no problem. My question is what to do when getting out? Should I have a hot shower right away or just wrap myself in a blanket. After the first time I kept my socks on and wore gloves as that really helped with the fingers and toes from getting too cold and uncomfortable. I am finding that even with a 10 min hot shower then wrapping myself in a blanket after, I am still cold for almost an hour after. Is this normal? I figured I would warm up more quickly than that. In just these 3 days I've dropped 4 lbs, without changing anything else, so i am going to continue but I don't like the hour of coldness after. Is that just the price I have to pay, or should I excersise? maybe some pushups and squats or something? Any tips? (other than stop doing it). Thanks

http://forum.jackkruse.com/forumdisplay.php?4-Cold-Thermogenesis. There are several threads and some of them are quite lengthy. I found all the info I needed and yes, being cold for SEVERAL hours after is some peoples experience. I just seem to be really cold for about an hour, but now that I think about it I am mildly cold for some time after. I've only done this 3 days now and apparently you will warm up faster the longer you do it. CT takes about 6 weeks to become cold adapted from what everyone on that forum says.

ok, I did go to Jack's forum and there are plenty of anecdotes regarding this. Thanks @orust for reminding me to go there.

I thought as much myself, but the after soaking is actually more uncomfortable than the soaking. Just so you know @Crowbar, getting in is the hard part for me. After about 10-20 sec of initial shock, the rest of the time is almost comfortable.

He just posted a 25 top FAQ, but they did not answer my question. But, yeah maybe I will, i just wanted to ask here for more practical advice.

From what I've read, the shivering is beneficial to weightloss, so you should just wear a towel and shiver back up to normal temp. I've tried this once, but have yet to commit to doing it regularly.
