I think the benefits of cold thermogenesis goes beyond just calorie burning.

Heat, increasing the core temperature, can increase energy expenditure (every degree increase in core temperature increases metabolic rate by ~10%) and tends to blunt appetite for various reasons.
This sounds more appealing than spending the day freezing.

Just how hot would it have to be outside for you to start heating up by degrees on the inside? Are we talking Southern Europe in the summer, saunas, or laying inside a furnace?

I was always under the impression that this statement was in reference to internally generated heat, like when running a fever. I'm curious now if this also covers situations like you inquire about, though I wonder why metabolic rate should be increased in those scenarios. Due the processes involved with the body's cooling mechanisms, perhaps?

I was too for quite some time but heat exposure per se seems to induce it.

Okay, I guess I'll be the one to ask.

How so?

What about drinking cold water?

Is the simple heating water up from say 6 to 36 degrees celcius, going to burn 30kcal per litre of water?

If you drink 2 litres a day it is 60 kcal. Not much, but still on a 500kcal deficit it would increase the deficit by 12%, giving an extra pound of fat loss every 8 weeks.

cold immersion for performance recovery is not as effective as cryotherapy. Cold shock proteins are triggered which releases 2 to 3 fold of norepinephrine. Also you trigger the RBM3 gene which helps the potential to regrow new synapses in the brain.
