    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."

    Mine only seems to happen after a full meal.

    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.

    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.

    You'd think so wouldn't you?

    Yes. Which is why if you're feeling cold there could be another issue at play. For me too, although I don't get the chills after eating yogurt nearly as often as I did when I was LC.

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