Cold exposure will build brown fat... and fool your body fat scanner!

Updated: Jun 27, 2021

I was a fat kid, who grew up to be a pudgy young man, who matured into an obese, middle-aged adult Dad. By mid-40’s, I was setting a bad example for my kids, my wife was unhappy, and I was embarrassed by the shape I was in. This is my story.


When I decided to do something about it, I started skipping lunches and experimenting with different exercise classes. I tried yoga, spin, kickboxing, and weight training. My favorite was a cardio ballet class.


I stuck with the fasting and I quit alcohol and I increased my caffeine intake about 3-fold.


I dropped to 185 lb.
