I've been on paleo for a bit over a month now, and I'm already experiencing all of the awesome effects (weight loss, sustained energy, etc.).
I don't have a problem so much as just a random question. Sometimes after eating, or after drinking vegetable juice (made in my new juicer!) I get this really pleasant faint warm feeling in my stomach. Does anyone know what that is, or why that happens?
For further context: I make vegetable juice (celery, kale, cucumber, ginger, apple, lemon, sometimes parsley too) every few days, and usually have a warm stomach after drinking it. Also today I had some broccoli and cabbage slaw for lunch and experienced the warm feeling a bit after eating it.
What's going on?

id say its the thermogenic effect of the ginger :)
I get the same feeling after a big dinner... It's addicting!
You know how you feel warm and happy and loved when someone does something nice for you? Same thing is happening with your stomach! ;-)
Well, i believe this could be one of severa things...
The first few that come to mind are blood rushing to the stomach to aid with digestion or perhaps a type of acid reflux (See: http://www.healthboards.com/boards/acid-reflux-gerd/906790-warmth-stomach.html)
