View Full Version : hungrier in colder weather

So since I've been raw my appetite has gone down a lot, I loved this, but lately the weather has been really stormy and my appetite has gone up and I'm really lethargic and therefore exercising less. Is this normal? Is it a weather/hibernation instinct or something. Its worrying me, because I don't want to gain back all of the weight I've already lost!

Since I don't function well in cold weather, it affects me. I tend to not be able to focus on much and will eat more to make up for lack of activity. Good thing it rarely gets cold here. When in unsavory conditions or any change in the norm, we often want food as comfort. I wouldn't worry about it much. Being conscious of it, you can make changes to improve things if you want.

I agree with Dimond. I'm the same way.
For me its because I'm not as busy in the winter. I'm not out and about as much. I have to keep myself busy to stay away from the kitchen otherwise I just eat because I'm bored. When its colder out I use to wear sweat pants and my boyfriend's sweaters all the time but this winter I've been staying away from my comfy clothes and wearing outfits that make me feel more sexy which is usually less fabric which in that case I have to keep moving, keep busy otherwise I get cold. hahaha... Its what works for me
I've taken up sewing as a hobby and trying new work out videos to stay motivated.
So is it normal to be "lethargic" and exercise less?.. Most people I know are like this in the winters.. so yes I guess so.
Just do what you gotta do, find what works for you! :)

I found myself wanting some hot popcorn tonight. I wasn't hungry so I guess I was just wanting some hot snack food. Its colder here tonight then it has been in awhile. I can't wait for summer to get here.
