One-tonne boa constrictors?
So do we want a climate suitable for one-tonne boa constrictors? Or for people?
The climate has change a lot over the lifespan of the earth, but humans have only been around over a rather narrow range of temperatures.

The body uses a lot of energy trying to stay warm, so lack of sustenance would indeed make things worse.
I was once trapped somewhere cold and exposed for a couple of hours (not sub-zero cold, but it was windy and raining hard), and it was a considerable help that I had water and plenty of high-energy food.
