Simple Tips and Tricks to Stop Excessive Sweating with Diet
Do you sweat too much? If so, your diet may be to blame. In a past blog post, we highlighted which foods cause you to sweat… Now, we’ll cover some things you can add to your diet to help stop excessive sweating:
With diet, one of the simplest ways to curb excessive sweating is by drinking plenty of water. When your body is properly hydrated, it doesn’t have to work as hard to regulate your body temperature, less work = less sweat. Simple, yet effective!
Low-fat or Skim Milk
That creamy whole milk you love for dipping Oreos or dousing your honey cheerios may be adding to your sweat problem. Swapping your tasty rich whole milk for skim milk can be quite an adjusment, but it’s worth it when your pits don’t end up as soggy as your morning cereal.
Calcium, like other essential nutrients, keeps you healthy but can also slow the sweat. By consuming a healthy portion of calcium rich foods, you give your body the ammo it needs to regulate temperature and reduce perspiration. What foods are calcium rich? Low-fat yogurt, cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, almonds, baked beans, kale and collard greens.
Fruits and Vegetables
You seeing a trend here? Eating a healthy, balanced diet can keep your sweat in check. Fruits and vegetables definitely make this list. Vitamin-rich and packed with water, fruits and veggies keep you slim (we all know how love handles, jelly rolls and beer guts contribute to extra sweat and discomfort), aid in digestion, and keep you hydrated. These of course all contribute to less sweating.
The more your body works to digest certain foods, the more you’ll probably sweat. Olive oil works with your digestive system making it almost effortless for your body to process. Like we said earlier, less work usually means less sweat. Go ahead and substitute that vegetable oil with some healthy olive oil. Other side effects include healthy blood pressure, and lower cholesterol.
Like a car, your body runs smoother when it’s been properly maintained. High quality fuel, motor oil, regular oil changes keep your car from overheating, overworking and eventually breaking. B-Vitamins have a similar effect on your body. They help your body carry out critical metabolic functions and inter-nerve communication that keeps things running smoothly. When you don’t get these essential B Vitamins your body has to work harder which can cause you to sweat more. Grab some B Vitamins or fill your plate with whole grains, proteins and vegetables to keep that body operating at optimal levels.
