The night sweats only occur when I drop my carbs low. (That I know for sure.) As for waking up, I have been playing with my diet lately, and I have found that I just HAVE to eat at night. It is not uncommon, and it happens weather I take a fat-burner or not. My body is in constant repair at this point.

1 Scoop of IsoNatural Whey Protein
1 (or 1/2) Scoops of Natural Unflavored Casein Protein
1 Tbsp of Peanut Butter
Some type of smaller fast carb, and a serving of complex carbs. After this I sleep like a baby. Read More...
I am training, and have been for a few months now, for my first competitions. I have been working out all my life, but just this year started to eat clean and really take up bodybuilding.
One problem that I have run into pretty often is waking up in the middle of the night, (sometimes twice a night) and experiencing severe hot-flash like symptoms. My whole body literally feels like it is on fire. This especially happens (but hasn't been limited to) after leg days.
I was wondering: what the science is behind it? if anyone else has experienced it?
Literally, I could die today driving my car. But I am still going to drive.
Though Jay Cutler could live longer if he ate less,(reguardless of weather he is all natural or not) he never would because it would interfere with his training.
I mean that we take risks every day. It's wisest to take those risks only if they are congruent with your goals.
