Caffeine + little/no sugar = coldness?

A fair number of people who are on paleo diets have complained about coldness (cold hands and feet) and recently I've noticed a pattern in myself:

When I consume caffeine without any sugar, I seem to get colder, where caffeine with sugar seems to make me warmer.

Do any of you experience the same thing?

Sugar can be a little honey with tea, an apple with breakfast, nothing too extreme. It does seem to make a difference.

Which isn't to suggest that you are on a ketogenic diet, but that upon waking up in the morning, your blood sugar is relatively low.

This may be tied in to the concept of "adrenal fatigue", in which caffeine and ketogenic diets are both implicated. Thus, it is possible that the sugar is off-setting some effect that the caffeine is having on you.
