Foods That You Don’t Know Are Making You Sweat More

Foods That You Don’t Know Are Making You Sweat More

Some people believe that profuse sweating is something that they have to deal with the rest of their lives. However, little did they know that there are triggers that cause them to sweat more than others.

If anyone desires to get rid of his or her excessive sweating, they have to look at their diet first.

The types of food you consume can be deciding factors that trigger excessive sweating. Taking out the specific food groups identified below from your diet is one way to reduce profuse sweating.

Spicy foods

    Is it hot or did you just eat something spicy?

    To be honest, spicy food is known to make people sweat excessively, but not for the reason you’re thinking.

    Spicy foods increase your metabolism which causes your body temperature to rise and make you sweat profusely. Generally, foods that ‘speeds up’ your metabolism do not so much speed things up as cause your metabolism to work harder to produce the end product.

    Coffee

      Drinking coffee can also cause excessive sweating. The drink contains caffeine, which is a well-known stimulant. While it is popular for powering most people to work early before day breaks, caffeine also stimulates your central nervous system. Therefore, not only does it jolt your senses, but it also jolts your sweat glands, which could cause you to break a sweat even before arriving at the office. Arriving at work drenched in your perspiration is not a good look for you in the office.

      Therefore, if you experience sweating and are a regular coffee drinker, it is best to (gasp) cut out coffee, and you may find yourself relieved with having drier clothes and body. If you cannot resist consuming freshly brewed coffee to start your mornings, then you should settle with chilled caffeinated drinks instead.

      Fruits and Vegetables

        Followers of raw food and vegetarian diets will vouch for this because they are comprised of complex carbohydrates and fiber, fruits and vegetables use a greater amount of energy to digest than processed foods. This energy is created by metabolism which works faster to cope. Eating onions and garlic and anything that is high in vitamin B can also make you sweat a lot too. B vitamins raise the body’s internal temperature thus making you sweat more than normal.

        Lean Proteins

          According to Vanderbilt University, sweating due to a high consumption of protein is the body disposing urea. The substance is formed during a protein breakdown in the body, causing your body to sweat more than usual.

          Turkey and chicken and fish are the greatest sources of lean protein as they develop naturally lower in fat than red meats. Research has shown that protein assists in boosting metabolic rate because, just like fiber, it is less easily digested and therefore burns more energy to digest which leads to sweating.

          Alcohol

            From a more practical standpoint, alcohol helps you drown your sorrows until you are in a drunken stupor. However, as you fill your body with alcoholic beverages, your blood vessels also widen. This process referred to as vasodilation causes your pores to enlarge, which gives way for sweat to come out easier from your body.

            If you are lucky enough, instead of projectile vomiting due to so much alcohol, you’d be sweating bullets instead. Unless you prefer the other way around.

            To recap, if you cut spicy foods, coffee, and alcohol out of your diet and regular daily routine, you may be surprised to notice a substantial decrease in the amount of sweat you produce.

            So be cautious of what you eat and drink and cut off these foods in your daily routine to stop sweating so much and live the life that you want.

            10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

            10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

            Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

            Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

            So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

            Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

            Video Summary

            1. It is easier.

            When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

            2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

            Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

            3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

            Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

            4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

              If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

              5. It could lead to better sleep.

              Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

              6. It can help your skin.

              For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

              7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

              Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

              8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

              Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

              9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

              For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

              10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

                Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

                Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

                Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

                Sleep well with your naked body!

                With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

                Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
