Why do I get the cold so easily? I always seem to get the common old easily than others... I eat fruit and vegetables and I have a balanced diet.

In brief: Check thyroid

The common identifiable cause of cold intolerance is hypothyroidism, which your physician will probably screen for if you mention it to him/her. Many people develop cold intolerance without any identifiable cause, and a few people develop visible skin changes due to cold allergy or proteins and precipitate in the cold.
