Does winter time make a person hungrier?

I have been thinking about food a lot lately and how good it tastes. I can not just have a bowl of ice cream I have to warm up a brownie, put vanilla ice cream on top, and sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs.
Why can't it just be simple?

  • Lack of sunlight and vitamin D and lack of out door activities puts us in a slow mode and wanting comfort foods and just more food in general, we are trying to keep warm and wanting to hibernate so we want more food again. Keep a clear mind.

  • I'm sure it does as we are trying to keep our bodies warm from all the cold so we eat

  • I don't know, but if you figure it out, please let all the rest of us know the answer! Maybe our bodies need more warmth in the winter, and burning off all those extra calories produces more heat????

  • i think we over eat in the winter. i hear more people claim depression in the winter from lack of fresh air and natural light. and a lot of people turn to comfort foods when they're sad. not to mention the winter holidays are the best binge time

  • Yes. Naturally speaking, your body requires more food to produce heat to help you survive the cold, harsh winter. Unfortunately for our waistlines, we have heaters, which means we need to control our impulse eating.
