Does eating cause your body to heat up?

    Heat in the body is generated by metabolic processes that require ATP, or Adenosene TriPhosphate. This is a byproduct of the respiration process, and is driven by carbohydrates from food. So, food does make the body generate heat.

    Yes, eating does slightly increase your body temperature. When your stomach begins digesting food, it triggers many chemical reactions that consequently generate heat. Your body temperature may go up by as much as 2 degrees F.
