Or, if you’re a meat-eater and using anabolic steroids, does that change your sweat production?
If we go back to the 1930s and 1940s—when scientists were studying biceps size in athletes—we find that some of these same researchers did studies on lifters who were eating nothing but steak. They found that they sweated more than other people while they slept. This was because their bodies had been starved for calories by not eating anything but steak! So it didn’t really matter whether or not the dieting athlete ate any carbs; what mattered was how many calories he or she burned during workouts. (Note: That doesn’t mean you should eat six steaks for dinner!)
Athletes at rest tend to have higher amounts of body fat compared to nonathlete controls (due to less activity). However, there is no difference between trained athletes at rest and untrained controls when it comes to sweating while sleeping. Therefore training status has little effect on resting sweat rates even though trained individuals may have greater levels of body fat at different points in time…
In another study from 2008, they measured subjects over a 15-day period either with or without medications used in treating diabetes. They divided them into two groups: one group took insulin before bedtime every night, the other group did not take medication prior to going to sleep each evening. The result?
