Body Heat
Why is people's body tempretarure so different, I am 37 year old female and I'm never cold, only in the evenings but other then that I cant wear winter clothes I am just to hot! My friends will come and hold my hands just to get some of my body heat, I am also about 12kg overweight could this be the problem?

US, being 12 kg overweight won’t make a difference. Anyway, obesity will make you intolerant to both heat and cold.
Some people’s thermostats are just set at a slightly higher temperature and it is nothing to worry about. If it is a recent thing, you will of course have to look at things like high blood pressure, thyroid problems, etc. Good luck.
