Your body will burn calories and fat to keep your temperature up to normal. In addition to various hormonal changes that increase metabolism, fat burning, and muscle building, you can burn a massive amount of calories with cold thermogenesis.
Sensations: feeling lightly cooled off or a little “chilled out”
Mechanism: works primarily through the “autonomic” nervous system.
- increased respiration (breathing)
- increased heart rate
- increased catecholamine response
Note: this is a very relaxed, effortless level of intensity. Because it’s so easy, you can go at Casual intensity for many hours a day, 7 days a week.
Having said that, the original indirect calorimetry experiment showed that at Casual intensity you have a small increase in calorie burning that probably will not results in significant changes in body composition, and is probably better used for rest and relaxation and not weight loss. To burn fat, you should move up to higher intensity levels…
Sensations: a deeper chill, possibly goosebumps
Mechanism: Brown Fat. (also called Brown Adipose Tissue, or “BAT”)
- Skeletal Muscle Uncoupling
- Insulin Sensitivity
Brown Fat & Skeletal Muscle Uncoupling work by burning off fat and glucose to generate heat during Cool Fat Burner & Cool Gut Buster use.
The Cool Fat Burner has not only proven it can activate Brown Adipose Tissue, that it can maintain maximal BAT levels even through months of summer weather, but it can keep BAT active for hours after you take off the cooling vest!
Insulin Sensitivity allows for the nutrients you eat to be burned up by Brown Fat or taken up to enhance your muscles, instead of being stored as fat and causing systemic inflammation, obesity, and disease.
Controlled cold exposure may increase natural thyroid production, which in turn ramps up metabolism and fat burning.
THE BIGGEST SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGH YET — The Cool Fat Burner
ACTIVATES BROWN FAT — AND KEEPS IT ACTIVATED FOR LONG AFTER THE SESSION!!!
Sensations: pre-shivering through various levels of shivering
Mechanism: Shivering, Adiponectin, Irisin, Insulin Sensitivity, Nutrient Partitioning. Shivering can at least triple a person’s metabolic rate, burning a massive amount of calories.
Causes the largest release of Adiponectin.
Increases Irisin 4-5 times faster than exercise.
Forces nutrients into muscles, may cause “supercompensation” of muscle glycogen and increasing protein synthesis. This means bigger, stronger muscles and faster workout recovery.
