This relates to the family of UCP (six total as of today) but specifically UCP 2 and 3 effect paleo diets and energy partioning.

Are we talking diet only or are you working in your cold bath stuff?

Hi Dr. K,
I second Kamal's response that while uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation and glycolysis theoretically makes energy metabolism horrendously inefficient, in reality the degree of uncoupling is negligible enough to be a fly on an elephant.

I talked to the local energy lab professor about uncoupling a couple days ago. She says it is not so variable depending on diet.
Thus, outside of dinitrophenol and icy dips, she made it sound like energy metabolism and/or nutrient partitioning would not be effected much by the composition of your diet.
Several participants in Lyle McDonald's forum used DNP for weight loss, and came out totally ripped within just a few weeks. Of course, they were very careful, and this method is recommended for absolutely no one!
EDIT: Two things that I've tried to quantify for heat production are drinking ice cold water and setting the thermostat low. Drinking cold water is much less onerous and produces something like a 40 kcal weight loss per day per eight glasses of cold water, if I recall correctly.
