    Lost a lot of weight and now "hot" all the time

    Quick background - weighed 206 (desk job) 3 years ago - had not worked out for over 4 years at that time. Epiphany occurs - got off my managerial butt and began running 4 times a week for the first year and then added road biking to the mix 2-3 times a week since then.

    Long story short - now weigh 168. (47 years old, 5'9")

    However, ever since I dropped below the mid to upper 170's - I run "hot" all of the time.

    High body temp (99.0 on average), sweat easily, feel like any food I eat is burned off inside of 3 hours. Even got tested for diabetes - negative. Weird that when I had the body fat - I was cold most times irregardless of actual ambient temps - now at my skinny self- I throw the windows open every chance I get in order to cool off.

    My wife jokes that I have caught her menopause - but I am curious if this shift in metabolic rate affects people who have lost a lot of weight and/or work out regularly?

    i have had the opposite problem, I get colder a lot easier now. Just our bodies way of reacting to such changes I guess. Oh yeah, and I cant float on my back when I swim anymore and that pisses me off.
    I'm still young, I have lots of riding and drinking left to do !

    I have lost a bit of weight (~30 lbs) and I have noticed that I feel hotter as well. I sweat like a freakin' pig when sleeping; very annoying. Last winter I wore shorts day in and day out (admittedly, "winter" here is pretty mild, but we still occasionally see mid-30s a point at which even hardy Minnesotans think I'm a little "different").

    What suppllements are you taking?
    erm . . . I take a multivitamin. And some beers + burritos . . . maybe it's all of those hot chili peppers?

    Hey Corporate, It sounds like Hyperthyroidism to me. Guys can have thyroid problems too, especially athletes...Ask your doctor for a thyroid test, it's just a simple blood test, good luck. Jaz

    Taking a tip from Siu Blue Wind, I too am typing a lengthy passage of text down here to demonstrate the enormous amount of space available should one wish to use it-- in sharp contrast to the avatar text above this part.

    do you notice one side of your body is hotter than the other, by chance?
