I guess that could be a sign of my metabolism kicking lol i dunno... Every time I eat anything that isnt like frozen my body is just drenched in sweat. Doesnt matter on the calorie content really... could be broccoli and two scoops of whey or 16oz steak and 16 oz of potatoes..

I believe this is diet-induced thermogenesis (DIT). It is the increase in heat production by the body after eating due to the metabolic cost of digestion (the secretion of digestive enzymes, active transport of nutrients from the gut, and gut motility) and the energy requirement of making glycogen, fat and protein stores. My understanding is that it can make up 7-15% of the energy expenditure.

To answer your question, I sweat to post meals, though can't say that I'm drenched.

Hehe I am with you on that one, I ate 80g of cashews and some bizon meat earlier and was sweating like a pig 5 minutes later. The only physical activity I did was the trip upstairs to my room lol

I'm actually the opposite. As soon as I finish eating, I'm FREEZING (especially my hands) and have to put on a sweater. Is something wrong with me?:confused:

I sweat insanely after every meal that's >500 calories, I've found. That sucks too, since all my meals and snacks are around that! I sweat at night too... to the point where I'll wake up drenched and have to change my clothes. I haven't really found anything that helps to stop it either, but I'm assuming that it is metabolically related.

not always BUT I notice I get this when I eat even 100 cals over what my body is USED to eating for a day...kinda odd...cheats send me through the roof with shakes and sweat...but pre-contest I only get it when I eat a decent amount of carbs

I dunno, someone once said it's because the blood is rushing to my digestive system to assist in the breakdown of the food I just ate (thereby leaving the rest of me cold), but no one else seems to experience this but me lol.

I get it every now and then. If I'm at a buffet it's almost a certainty I'll be sweating by meal's end lol

Almost every day for dinner I get it. I love it though. I'll finish a huge vegetable dinner or some sort, next thing I know, I am on fire, somewhat sweating, and extremely vascular. I feel like ripping bricks in half.

Hehe yup. Unless it's a hot beverage (coffee, tea, etc), I'm immediately cold right after eating. It only lasts for maybe an hour or so, though; then my body temp goes back up and I feel normal again.
