Sometimes we do something expecting one result and get the exact opposite. Yoga is supposed to be calming, but it frequently causes you to break a sweat. Massages might really create muscle cramping if you don’t stretch afterwards. Eating, which is often a soothing event, can also promote perspiration.

So, what’s the big deal about sweating after/while eating? After all, you’re not likely to be a competitive eater. Even without science, it makes sense that downing 40 hot dogs in five minutes would stimulate someone’s sweat glands.

Here is why we sweat after/while we eat

The condition of sweating after eating is known as gustatory hyperhidrosis. Because the ingredient that gives chilies their kick increases your body temperature, spicy foods may promote sweating after eating. Sweating after eating may also be caused by ‘Frey’s syndrome’, a rare disorder involving nerve injury near your salivary glands.

Can some foods cause you to perspire?

Without a doubt. Although scientists are divided on whether or not meat sweats exist, experts agree that specific foods can cause them. If you find yourself sweating after having eaten, there are two main culprits: hot foods and (potentially) sweet foods. Acidic foods, such as those containing vinegar, as well as dishes served hot, such as soup, may increase the probability of sweating.

How to control Sweating After Eating?

If you know your sensitivities, the simplest way is to avoid meals that make you sweat. If your sweating is interfering with your everyday life, consult a medical expert to examine your treatment options.
