As I stand in the shower, I feel a piercing pain in my chest as if someone just drove a knife through it.
The pain keeps repeating itself over and over again, and it doesn't let up for even a second.
Rather than give in to the pain, I decide to fight back.
I regroup, tighten up my fists and scream, "Is that all you got? Lets go!"
The next thing I hear is my wife banging on the bathroom door, screaming, "Is everything okay? Do you need help?"
I respond, "It's okay baby .... I am just taking an Ice Cold Shower."
Why the Ice Cold Shower?
I actually blame all of this on my man, Tim Ferriss, author of The Four Hour Body.
(He's not really "my man", but he is highly intelligent and I try to follow 99% of what I read in his books.)
In his book, Tim states the reason Michael Phelps was able to burn 12,000 calories a day was largely due to thermal effects he endured while training in a pool all day.
After a great deal of research, he was able to determine that things like taking a freezing cold shower and sitting in ice baths would significantly increase the rate of fat loss.
Due to my respect for Mr. Ferriss, I had to give it a shot.
Did it work?
Within two weeks, I lost 9lbs and 2% body fat.
Is it hard to do?
You need to really, really want it to do this.
|This person is burning massive fat right now|
So I ask you ....
Do you want to be fat or do you want to be cold?
Most people I asked would rather take a nice warm shower.
I guess they would rather be comfortable, as they looked down at their fat and blubber.
I am off to my cold shower...
