  • Cold after eating

    I get quite cold after eating a meal (even a hot one) and I stay that way for an hour or two. Anybody heard of this?

    I don't know what the reason is, but I know there is one! Hopefully someone will answer. I get it as well, but weirdly - only after eating yogurt...
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

      For several years that happened to me every time I ate. I thought maybe it was the body pooling energy/blood to the digestive system and away from the extremities/skin (hey that's reasonable enough, right?). I also ate practically non-fat back then and was a skinny mini. I was cold a lot of the time, but the coldness after eating was a phenomenon all its own. I don't really get cold anymore though. It's weird, I actually run pretty hot now.

        Mine only seems to happen after a full meal.

          This can be a symptom of being hythyroid. Are you having any other symptoms such as hair loss, low energy, brittle nails?

            Not a thing.

              I only get that way if I am eating a cold meal (salad) on a cold temperature day. But if I eat a warm meal it normally warms me up. Have you checked your temperature and pulse? You may want to check your thyroid to rule out hypothyroid.

              People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

                No, I haven't checked anything. What am I looking for in temperature? Up or down?

                  If you are hypo your temperature would be lower than typical. Do you also have cold hands and feet? Also, are you doing low carb paleo?

                    I'll have to take my temp when I get home. My hands get cold when the rest of me gets cold, feet not too bad. I'm in the middle of a 7 day potato diet, normally it's low carb primal in that I eat dairy.

                      Richard Nikoley mentioned during one of his potato diet blog posts that the coldness he felt after a high-fat meal didn't return during his potato-based meals.

                        I wish I knew what caused it, I've been having this problem lately too, even though I've been mostly Primal for over a year. I usually have low body temperature (it's funny, those forehead stickers for kids won't even light up the N for normal, I'm usually 97 or less) and lately I've been freezing in the house even with the heat set to 74. Hands and feet like ice, and it's worse after meals. I'm suspecting either anemia (common for me) or thyroid issues, more the latter because my skin has gotten really dry and I have really low energy, and all of this started around the same time as the excessive coldness. I'm going to try to find a doctor this week and have my blood work done.

                          crap. I'm on this wagon too. Cold most of the time. Feet/hands/nose always cold. Temp is always 96.8- 97.0. Get cold after eating no matter what it is. help?
                          The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

                            That is more than reasonable, it's exactly what I've been thinking.

                              I think that's CW. Food has a thermogenic effect, so technically eating should make you feel warmer.
