Weird observation... Possible?

Answered on August 19, 2014

When I eat grains I seem to be pretty sensitive to temperature. When I am good about avoiding them then I swear I never get cold! Also, my boyfriend has made observations that I am never really "warm" anymore. Like my skin is always even temperature instead of feeling really warm at night.

Anyone else notice that their body regulates temperature better on paleo? Seems weird but is it possible? I can be outside in the 40-50 degree whether and feel absolutely fine without a jacket.

I'm starting to think I am sensitive to wheat. If I eat any other grains or sugar, I notice no drastic differences but if I eat wheat I immediately gain 5-10 pounds and get puffy and te weight goes away over the next few days. You may e right that my thyroi is in check now. Either way, I feel great!

I've noticed that. People who are sensitive to wheat can notice a hit to their thyroid function if they eat it, so if you drop the wheat, boom, thyroid comes back on line, and body temperature regulates better.

Yes. I used to blaze with heat most of the time. I would sleep naked under a sheet while my spouse was under a down comforter and wearing a flannel nightie.

I am not 'paleo' by any means, just 30 lbs lighter, taking in less than 75 gr carbohydrates per day.

Same here but not as impervous as you. I've always been cold whenever temp dips below 50 degrees (frozen hands and feet) and uncomfortably hot when it's more than 90 degrees but since going Paleo, my hands and feet have not been icy cold nor do I mind hot temps so much. Good benefits, IMO.

I’ve been Paleo for about six months, after about three months my night sweats went away. It would be interesting to know the mechanism behind this.

No. I avoid grains and am currently visiting my brother's family in MN. I am freezing here. Supposed to be around 50° F on Monday and I'm hoping that I will thaw out, if only temporarily. I have not noticed that it makes any difference at all what I'm eating, including coconut oil. Hoping it will be warmer when I go back to IA in a week but not counting on it. I hate winter because I'm always so cold! BTW, I've noticed that I'm also not really breaking a sweat when I work out lately. If you have any suggestions, I would gladly appreciate them.

Umm. Not really here. Though last week I walked through downtown Fort Worth barefoot in the cold (long story). I was wearing a heavy coat and while my core was still chilled, my feet felt fine. I still feel like I burn up at night, even when my BBT is low.
