These particular bodies preferentially burn the fat, rather than keep it in storage-- at least when down to a certain level of body fat.
    Hmm. My husband is a hard-gainer and has episodes of night sweats regularly, but he consumes probably 400-500g carbs a day and stays thin as a rail.

    Thanks- I got myself some magnesium supplements to help with the cramping, which I think is the only problem with losing so much water. Checking out itsthewoo's blog posts as well. I freaked out a little bit because my friends are constantly lecturing me on my horrible eating habits- too much fat, too much protein and that I would be better off eating everything in 'moderation' aaarg!!

    Night sweats can be caused by adrenaline spikes.

    This is my experience, too. A carb refeed results in waking up in a pool of sweat, practically on fire.

    I do sometimes get a flushed feeling if I eat a lot of coconut products in one day. All those MCT's burning up.
    When trying to lose weight before, I went on a 700 calorie a day diet that was VLC and I was always cold. BUT, it was also pretty low in fat too. I was basically eating really lean meat and veggies and hardly any fat OR carbs. From that experience my guess is that either my body had nothing to use for fuel to keep warm or more likely it went into energy conservation mode and turned down the thermostat.

    When I control my eating, I get more cold in general. I'm in North Carolina and I midday here in the summer I am in a sweater sometimes. I am a night heater-upper in general, but much worse when I am building exercise. As I understand it the heating is associated with my auto-immune disorders. The coldness is as well, but it really responds to my level of eating.

    Exactly. I think this is why some people try VLC and blame lots of negative symptoms such as cold extremities, hair loss etc on it but really it is the extreme low calories that are sometimes involved.

    You don't notice the heat increase, but you do experience the sweating. Does the sweating occur at your own personal residence?

    +1. I'm having more than usual at the moment (My body seems to have decided to refeed, even if I haven't!) and I'm getting very warm at night. Not enough to stop me sleeping, but enough to make me want to just sleep naked on a tiled floor instead. Oddly, when I open the window so the temperature indoors is closer to that outdoors, then I sleep better, even if the difference is marginal or nonexistent.
