Hi folks. I’ve recently been feeling surges of heat in the evenings and was wondering if others have felt this too. I was wondering if it has to do with having converted some of my White Adipose Tissue (WAT) to Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT)? When I start to feel hot, I find that the heat is coming from the top of my torso, just over the breasts. Also from the slides, just above the waistline.
I find that it doesn’t matter if it was a weight lifting day or a rest day, if I was eating at a caloric surplus (I’m usually at a deficit for fat loss), if I ate OMAD or TMAD. Some nights, I get really hot.
Last night it was -3C (~28F) and I stood outside, topless, and didn’t feel cold at all. I stayed out for 3-5 minutes before heading back inside.
Not sure if this helps, but what’s changed for me is that I’ve upped my protein consumption to ~1g per pound of body weight in the last couple of months. I also started taking creatine about a month ago (7 day loading phase). These changes helped me to lift more and I noticed that my muscles are noticeably bigger than they were a month ago.
