Why Do I Feel Hungrier In Winter?
“Simply put, when outdoor temperatures drop, your body temperature drops, and that’s what sets up the longing for foods that will warm you quickly. This is because eating helps to generate internal heat, subsequently leading to a rise in body temperature. During winter, the body works harder and spends more energy just trying to keep you warm, so your desire to eat more comes from your body’s natural increase in energy use.
“We get hungrier quicker, so we reach for more high-carbohydrate ‘fillers,’ and the vicious cycle is on,”
Technically, any food will boost your metabolism and help your body temperature to rise, but culturally, we’re not trained to think of salads or fruits and vegetables as winter eating isn’t it true, and also because we associate winter with richer, heavier meals, going back to when we were children…with different kinds of laddus, sheera, halwas, paks and many more to add on…
Of course, winter also means holiday, parties, and yes marriage season in full swing…. full of the very foods we’re craving. There isn’t anything wrong in enjoying all this delicacies unless we practice moderation….winter is the best season to lose weight…..if you follow this rule.
Do not use winter as an excuse to overeat!
Keep yourself warm by wearing extra layers of clothing
Or exercising, which you will probably agree is preferable to an extra layer of fat from eating too much.
