Hey guys. Have any of you experienced reductions in body odor and sweating getting on the paleo diet? I was going to try the vegan diet when i came across this. A few years ago i suddenly became more sweaty and I have tried all of my doctor's... (more)
Hey folks :) actually I think I already know some stuff about dry skin and paleo, also that it can be worst before it becomes better. But, my skin is realy, realy bad. When I press my finger nail in the back of my hand for just a second,... (more)
Quick search of 'sweating' on paleohacks and I see lots of complaints about excessive sweating. Well, I have the exact opposite: I never sweat. This is something that's been going on with me since I can remember. As a child I once remember... (more)
Maybe you need more salt, potassium, and other stuff you lose through sweat. Maybe your body is conserving these things and will sweat more if you have more water and electrolytes... Ever track your nutrients?
I've recently started a new style of strength training. My workouts consist of the main compound lifts, usually squats, dead lifts, rows, bench press, shoulder press, and chin ups, I do about 5-6 sets of 3-4 of those exercises about 3 or 4 times... (more)
Hello! I have been eating Artisana Coconut Butter daily for breakfast for about 2 years. I never really measure how much I use. I keep it cold and flake some off into my greek yogurt. I would estimate that it varies around 1-2 Tbsp. When I conusme... (more)
How do you "know" it has to do with the thyroid. Coconut butter and excessive sweating are not linked to thyroid disorders. Consider the possibility that your excessive sweating may be due to something else entirely and seek medical examination if... (more)
I hardly ever sweat and my skin is so dry when they say shoe leather well that is me and I am a woman about 60. I have had this most of my life my father was just like this and my 3 brothers. I have a thyroid disease I take Levothyroxin and have... (more)
I usually try to do the sauna about 15-20 mins per day, and I seem to sweat way more than the average person there, which began when I started drinking more water and eating more hydrating fruit (oranges etc). The last few days though, talking to... (more)
Did anybody have this problem? I get sweaty arms when flying (not too much, but somewhat irritating, the same about other parts of my body, but to a lesser degree). Sometimes palms are also cold. I'm trying to figure out how it relates to food I... (more)
Does anyone else sweat excessively in social situations? Most of the time, sweat levels are normal, however in new social situations (think job interviews, meetings, etc) sweating becomes profuse & embarrassing. (of course there is lots of... (more)
Do very active people deal better with heat? Or...is it easier to be active if you tolerate hot weather better? Or is it one of those cyclic things? Question related to this article/graphic: How bodies beat the heat. (more)
I understand that a question similar to this one had already been asked, but things are a tad different (age, workout level, etc). I am 24 and have been strict Paleo for about 38 days (no cheats at all). I have been CrossFitting 3/week since the... (more)
Hi, is anybody using baking soda against body odors? I simply put a little (1/4 spoon) of baking soda on my hand, mix it with little water and rub in in my armpits. It works great and never caused any irritation. It simply kills all bacteria... (more)
I spent all of Saturday at a metal show in Tampa. Lots of bands: Machine Head, Kingdom of Sorrow, The Athiarchists, and finishing up with Megadeth, Godsmack & Disturbed. Other bands there I wasn't interested in, but there were two outdoor... (more)
It's common. The heat led to the sweating which greatly increased what is called your insensible water/fluid loss. It is not a problem at all, unless you are not drinking enough to cover your increased fluid needs. And over an extended time, you'd... (more)
Its summer, and its Hot. but my ability to tolerate the heat has gone up considerably. I used to have to have the Air Conditioning set at 65, sweat constantly sitting around. Now that Ive lost all the weight, i keep my house at 80 degrees and im... (more)
i can only speculate that your heart rate has gone done on the paleo diet and with the lower heart rate comes better heat tolerance. profuse sweating during exercise is normal
Okay, I have a dilemma here that I'd like the hackers' collective thoughts on. I have fairly problematic sweaty feet, for which there are no real convenient treatments. It's severe enough that I can't do as many "natural" things as I'd like to... (more)
I am aiming to do a fast for 7 days. I don't plan to do anything overly strenuous but plan to spend most of my time outdoors, hiking, camping, etc. Unlike most of you I presume, I live in a place were its pretty much summer already (minus the... (more)
50% paleo sounds kinda like the standard american diet ;) Any particular reason you're doing this? Good luck, please post your experiences on here when you finish!
Don't get me wrong, it's a great relief to not be a sweaty mess half the time, like I was before, but now I don't seem to be producing a drop of sweat, even when exercising? Is this something to be concerned about?
Every time I walk out said when the sun is out or it is hot out side in a room or car that is to hot I brake out in hives. I'm not shout what to do can anyone helP
I am trying to figure out why I have started having spells of waking up in the night drenched in sweat. This has never occurred before outside of sickness but has happened off and on for the past few weeks. I am going to start tracking when these... (more)
