Is it normal for me to be cold like almost all the time?

Patient : Is it normal for me to be cold like almost all the time? I am always cold when my mom's warm. When i touch her hand, my hands are freezing and she says "oooh, your hands are cold" The only time I get warm is when I'm sick with a cold or the flu and when I hangout with my friends--A couple of my friends like to play tag. Besides the times i get warm as i mentioned above, all the other times I am really cold. I am a slim girl. Is it possible that i'm always cold because I'm a picky eater? The only meat i like is steak, chicken, ribs, and my dad's pork. My mom and dad always tell me that i need more meat on my bones.
