    That's a good point - Volek and Phinney say in their book The Art and Science of Low Carb Living, that you need more sodium if you are eating low carb.

      Are you feeling better bennyha? Did you feel 80 years old body wise or just mentally? I had a similar experience to a lot of your initial post when I incorporated a large soy supplement in my diet, it probably messed with my hormones so that's probably what your problem was too. I felt old, cognitive problems, couldn't sweat. I'm feeling better but not sure I'm 100% over the sides yet.

        I have a very hard time sweating on my back and scalp. Do you ever experience intense itching when you heat up to fast? (the itching is drastically reduced by regular exercise, for me.) How's your skin look. It could be: Cholinergic Urticaria. Give it a google.
