  • "Hot Flashes" since starting Primal?

    I starting eating Primal a few days ago, after about the third day, especially after eating something like a salad with olive oil, I get INTENSE hot flashes. I'm calling them that because that's what I assume they feel like (34 year old male) but I just feel internally super hot, hands sweaty, face sweaty. I'm just working at my computer in an air conditioned house so I don't think it got any hotter, but it's super weird.

    Is this "normal"? Could this be because my bodies burning fat for probably the first time in my life? (heat from the second engine being turned on?)

    Anyone else experience this?

    Incidentally I've lost 4-5lbs of scale weight in the past 4 days.

    Not sure what they are, but I have a twenty-something male friend who gets such things when he eats certain high fat or high protein meals. (He's super skinny, by the way, so maybe not a fat burning thing: metabolic fire??)
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

      I forgot to add a crucial piece of information. Both these hot flashes came after eating a salad with olive oil as dressing.

        It happens to me after eating coconut oil or other fat-containing food. Flash burn!

          I'm thinking it's the fats. Even when my friend's meal is meat, it's fatty meat.
