Because I can. LOL

NCal. Our Irish boy has done some research. He's pretty spot on. Add that because of a reflex similar to the mammalian reflex in slowing heart rate down in cold water, swimmers naturally retain more body fat than non-swimmers. And the colder the water is you swim in, the more fat your body will attempt to retain. The stress of forcing it to not retain said fat can and will cause damage. Just because you burn more calories in a colder environment doesn't mean your body won't attempt to shield itself from said cold environment by adding superficial and deep tissue fat.

As for what you eat to lose weight, gain muscle mass, etc., some people do much better on a low call, high fiber diet while others do better on moderate cal, high protein diet and yet others do well on moderate cal, well balanced diet.

Making any general pronouncements on only self-gathered evidence about your self is flawed. You would do much better to say "This is what works for me". But, I think you rather enjoy sounding like a pompous ass.

Hey, whatever motivates you, even a little logical insanity helps sometimes if the results are the same.

I certainly don't claim to be a specialist in wetsuits, physics, or biology, but everyone who learns anything learned it from someone or something else, and no search result will return a copy/paste of my posts, nor do I intend to cite every more knowledgeable author out there, who are all smarter than both of us :P

LOL good cut and paste. but the water that is warmed by my body in a wetsuit does not just stay there it leaks out as the cold water leaks in. Its just very slow. When diving one has to pee in their wetsuit, cant take it off because when it wet you can never get it back on. The warmth from the pee only lasts a few minutes before the cold water washes it all away. All fluids are moved from the inside of the wetsuit to the outside slowly and constantly.

While I admit I haven't been diving in a while, I do still have my SCUBA license. Regardless of that, you don't 'keep' the water warm, the water keeps you warm by acting as a barrier, an additional layer of insulation within the suit against your body heat. Once it's warm the water is essentially in equilibrium, you would actually burn less calories with the wetsuit on because you don't have to produce as much heat to stay warm, if that was actually how things worked, which they don't.

The potassium is lost as a result of sweating it out, which is also a sign of dehydration, the two aren't mutually exclusive, nor is potassium used up by your muscles, it maintains cellular fluid balance, which contributes to muscle cramping when those fluids are lost.

NO no no you are not divers. I am wearing a wet suit, not a dry suit. A wetsuit lets in water that is heated up by your body keeping a layer of warm water between your body and the wetsuit. keeping this layer of water warm burns calories.

But its the intense physical exercise while i am in the cold water that really burns the body fat. Holding your breath and diving down to 35 feet for three hours hunting fish, burns massive amounts of calories. The cramps happens because the intensity of the exercise has used up all the potassium in my body. Before i dive i take a couple of potassium pills and carb up.

Afterward i take more potassium to replenish that lost while diving.

If you are wearing a diving suit, you are shedding water weight. Dehydration is not weight loss, the cramping is another sure sign. As for the cold water causing you to burn calories, probably not. You may shiver at first which would not burn many calories for such a short duration. If the water is cold enough to cause physiological changes, then you would actually burn less calories as it would decrease blood flow to surface areas to try to maintain body heat and slow down metabolic processes to conserve body fat.

You're already producing excess body heat from exercising. Your body won't start burning a ton of calories just because the water is cooler, it's a common myth, though you might feel the need to work harder to stay warm and be shivering afterwards.

A few years might be a couple decades for me, but eventually we all get older sure. Then again, I don't plan on letting it catch up to me. It's easy enough to adjust what you're doing or eating as time takes its toll.

Youth just wait, you will not be able to eat like that in a few years. As far as burning calories free diving in cold water, its the body heat being lost to the cold water along with the intense exercise that burns massive amounts of calories. I am diving in 50 degree water. going down 20 to 35 feet. Even with the wetsuit i still bleed body heat. With 5mm gloves after three hours it takes about an hour for my hands to completely warm up. great way to stay in shape. and the hunting is more challenging then hunting land animals.

Quite the opposite for me actually NCal. Salads every day just give me really bad gas, while I can eat all the fried rice, fried egg rolls, and fried crab rangoon I like just fine with other vegetables and meats thrown in, or a giant Chipotle burrito with everything and a couple bags of chips. Fried eggs and muesli in the morning, some fruit , bread, and cheese in the evening, everyone processes food differently I guess.

I'd disagree with losing even a full pound of actual body mass in a single day though, people carry several pounds of water, food, and waste around all the time, so of course weight changes after a workout, especially in the morning before breakfast, but even swimming at a sprint pace for an hour straight will only burn around 800 calories, not enough for a full pound in a day, not even counting the muscle weight gain from that much activity.
