5 reasons why you snack in winter

Dropping temperatures, shorter days, end-of-year holiday meals… Snacking is a common behavior in winter, because it gives a false impression of comfort. But then how to limit the damage?

I- The reasons why you snack in winter

The main reason for winter weight gain is lack of light . Indeed, the lack of sun would directly impact our mind and our body . In summer, our cells do not store fat (or at least very little).

The cold increases our body's energy expenditure , so it tends to demand more calories from us than usual. It is therefore normal and natural to have a higher appetite than usual and to snack between meals.

In addition, the days are shorter and darker, leading to winter depression in some people. Let's face it, we tend to want to stay at home watching a good movie eating chocolate rather than motivating ourselves to play sports! The food then becomes comforting .
