Do you eat less or more when schools out in the summer?

I am just curious. I eat alot less. I dont know why. I guess I am too busy with the kids to remember to eat. How about you?

  • Less. Mix of time and hot weather slow my eating down.

  • Less, I am so hot that I will forget to eat or feel full after just a few bites so i eat what counts.

  • I eat less because I have to feed my son. He had reduced lunch/breakfast that became free lunch and breakfast at the end of the year in school but when school is out he doesn't get that.... So in order to feed everyone I skip breakfast and eat only 1/2 a lunch-sharing with my 3 year old. Hopefully my food stamps will kick in soon, or DH will find a better job or I will find a job...something!!

  • I eat less cause somedays we end up sleeping in, and then between work, housework and kids I get too busy to eat. Also in the hot weather I really don't feel like eating, and I can get buy with just a cup of yogurt, some fruit or a special K bar during the day.

  • I eat less, the kids eat more :) Just too busy with the kids and cleaning is MORE for sure when the kids are out during the summer break.

  • Less when the heat is brutal. We eat lots of fruit in the summer...and the grill gets a work out. Salads and cold sandwiches are a big fave with us too during the summer months.
