Here’s a video for some inspiration for you. The ice man takes a cold dip So last week I shared about Dr Kruse and his Cold Thermogenesis protocol.  Step one is putting your face into ice water daily to begin to get used to the cold.  I have been doing it myself for a few days and have learned a few things.  I’m also working my way through his blog posts as fast as I can (they are super dense) and have learned a bunch from that as well. First I’ll review. You need to dip your face in 50 degree water once a day.  Keep it up as long as you can stand it and until your skin starts to turn pale pink/white then quit.  It is best if you do this after a high protein meal and...
