First of all these experiments were set up to determine if subjects in cold exposed conditions would experience an increase in energy expenditure and if they would activate more brown fat cells.
The problem is is that there’s a big difference if your energy expenditure increases 25 calories versus 400 or 500 calories like many proponents of cold showers want you to believe.
The truth is that the results from the studies show that the difference in energy expenditure is there but it’s not really all that significant except in certain cases.
So what I mean by that is that in one of the studies one of the subjects increase the number of calories burned per day by 400 calories.
That’s something that I’m sure we would all love to have but in the same study, the average increase across all the subjects was only around 70 calories.
So that’s obviously a pretty small effect 70 calories isn’t gonna have you tightening your belt up every week.
So it’s clearly a very small effect and on top of that if one person could burn 400 calories and another person would only burn 70 calories then it’s obvious that there’s huge variation from person to person.
Meaning you might burn even less than 70 calories you might burn 10 because of the amount of brown fat cells you may have and way they react to cold environments.
On top of that these experiments aren’t exactly applicable to a regular person taking a thirty-second cold shower.
Many of these studies were super particular about how they would keep their subjects whole body cold for hours.
One study even used a liquid conditioned tube suit which would have cold water poured into it.
