Has anyone else noticed a change in their daily body temperatures when they've started doing consistent, daily exercise?

I've noticed that I'm constantly warmer, and I get particularly hot when I sleep. Is this maybe because of a newly increased metabolism? All other factors (bedding, clothing, room temperature) have remained relatively constantly, which is why I'm baffled.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Cool

When I first started doing Atkins my body temperature rose also. However I didn't increase my exercise. I'm pretty sure what is happening is that your 'metabolic furnace' is doing a good job in breaking down the food in your gut and distributing it to your body.

If I'm paying attention I tend to notice I feel warmer about 10-30 minutes after I eat.

Increase muscle mass produces more heat. And when you rid your body of toxins (aka bad food) your body will run better.

When you sleep, your liver is responsible for maintaining your body temperature - so that means your liver is working well Smile

Thank you. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't cheating myself. It feels weird that this is easy but it is only the beginning.
