Alcohol and body temperature

Answered on August 19, 2014

I've been Paleo for a year or so. Alcohol and me used to get along just fine, except for occasional grogginess after beer.

I seem to notice the effects more heavily now. I just had a cocktail. Some gin, red vermouth and campari.

On the walk home, I felt flashes of heat. I seem to get this sometimes after a drink. Does anyone else ever get that?

I suspect I might also have diarrhea after alcohol, but I can't be certain, there are other possible factors.

If you are low carb, you won't be able to handle alcohol as well.

If you are only occasionally groggy after drinking beer, you are clearly not drinking enough.

On a more serious note, alcohol is a vasodilator. The warmth you feel is blood flow near the surface of the skin.

ive started noticing an increase in body temp too. i use to be fine all night and the next day when i drank. now its the exact opposite. my heart flutters now too, and i get light headed and sick the next day. my friends say its just from dehydration but its just started happening within the last year. alcohol isnt that good for you anyway even tho it can be fun :) take it all in moderation my friend and listen to your body
