I was reading an article on Time.com with Jillian – the trainer from “The Biggest Loser”, and that lead me to a link for a photo gallery about what makes us overeat.
I ws flipping through, yeah, yeah, yeah…
But then there was an interesting tip.
We eat more when we’re cold.
I mean, I knew that – but I never really thought much about it. You know what I mean?
But, it’s a natural response. Your body needs more fuel to warm up, so you feel hungry.
Bump the temperature up a degree and you’ll eat less. Save on air conditioning costs this summer, and lose weight.
And then, you’ll be warm and maybe you’ll go swimming and lose even more weight.
This could spiral out of control!
OK, I’m tired. I think I’ll sign off while I’m ahead!
That explains why a couple of national restaurant chains that will remain nameless are always so darned cold you always need a jacket. Except that they carry it to extreme to where you are so cold you don’t want to eat.
Extremes never work. Haven’t we learned that yet?
