    I agree that a lot of tasty farm and wild animals are cute, but I still eat them.

      I did find another suggestion elsewhere that suggested Iodine deficiency. That option seems to have some merit as well.

        Is you lack of sweating a problem for you? Because if you can do all the exercise you need to do, not dripping with sweat can only be a plus in my book. I have a friend who sweats profusely. He has to "pre-hydrate" before he goes hiking. He has to carry tons of water. He drips with sweat and has to wipe his brow constantly with a bandana. His shirt gets crusted with salt stains. Even on cold, dry days. Me? I can have a cup of coffee or two, hike all day, drink less than half a liter of water, and stay cool, dry and comfortable.

          I don't think that there is a correlation between sweating and how in shape or hydrated one is. I'm in shape and I really only ever sweat when I'm in an extremely hot environment. I like the fact that I don't sweat much because I an exercise and not need a shower afterwards or anything to cover up a fowl smell. So in short, I wouldn't sweat it.

            What kind of exercise you do for an hour with minimal sweating? I think that's very important. If I do resistance workouts, calisthenics, or even walking at brisk pace, I don't sweat much either. However, when I run as I always do at 5.8 mph. I start sweating profusely as I hit the 1mi. mark.

              It concerns me because I feel as though I am not adequately cooling my body when working out. Because of this I tend to not exert myself as much as I feel I could for fear of overheating.

                Generally run/walk and free weights. Just a couple years back I would sweat fairly regular. And now, close to nothing.

                  i'm not a sweater either. I never have been. I workout pretty hard as well. I don't use my perspiration as a guide whether I'm working out hard enough but rather how tired I get or if I'm getting out of breath.

                    Do you actually feel overheated or is this some kind of vague worry that you might overheat? What happens if you go all out? Do you actually get sick?

                    I don't know anything about you so I can't make assumptions about you, but I have led Sierra Club hikes for over a decade and witnessed some pretty odd things. I have had a lady come on a hike who freaked out because she was breathing hard. She had never felt that way before. She kept stopping to sit down thinking there was something seriously wrong with her like a heart attack or something. It turned out she just didn't know that you breathe hard when you hike up a mountain. It turned out she was actually quite a good hiker when she realized that breathing hard was normal.
