I also urge you to have your thyroid panel checked, a lot can change in your values in a year or two. Also, have you considered drinking bone broth? Calcium, magnesium, collagen, glycine and proline, are some of the important constituents of... (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?

Feeling fine in-between sets but feeling the delayed onset muscle soreness the next morning is perfectly normal. I don't think you need to worry that you're not gaining just because you don't instantly feel sore. Not sweating is something... (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 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)

If you're sweating a lot you should be aware of what's happening to your electrolytes, in particular the sodium-potassium balance. Generally speaking, you need salt and not just water. It's possible to kill yourself (that actually happens) by... (more)

I wish I knew the answer to this. I'm a sweater and it sucks. I will eventually adapt a little to hot weather, but not completely. It doesn't seem to matter what my physical activity level is at either, as I've been anywhere from sedentary to... (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

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?
