    Ok, so everyday I have to walk up this hill to college. When I reach the top of said hill, I'm the only one that`s sweating and red faced. I am plumper than the people I walk up with, but I`m fitter than most of them. I run three times a week and sail, and walk often. Is it just down to me being plumper than the rest of them, therefore I heat up quicker? Any advice on cutting down the sweat and redness, except for wearing lighter clothes?

    The answer to all your queries is probably contained in "I am plumper than the people I walk up with". You are having to do more work to raise your body mass vertically up the height of he hill, which produces heat. Also, the surface area to volume ratio decreases as your weight goes up, so it is harder to radiate heat or lose it by evaporation.

    Lose weight and you'll do less work, generate less heat and lose more easily the heat you do generate.

    Sweat and red facedness is just an individual thing. I don't sweat that much but if I run around and it's warm my face will go bright red. Most people I know don't really get any pinkness to their face when playing sport, even though I am fitter than them. It's just genetics

    You should vist a doctor. Extra sweat and redness may be caused by some health problem.
