Is it normal to sweat a lot in the beginning?

Recommended Posts

Sweating is your body's way of preventing you from over heating. It can be a good, healthy thing during exercise, but it can also be caused by a hormonal imbalance (think menopausal hot flashes etc) which Whole30 will be working towards rebalancing.

Consider also that eating protein has a thermic effect on the body. Protein has more than twice the thermic effect of fat or carbohydrates, with 15-35% of the energy consumed in a steak for example being required to digest it, so as your body works to breakdown the meat, it begins to heat up - hence the term 'meat sweats'

Of course if you're concerned in anyway please seek medical advice.
