It’s a good time to know that recent studies confirm what we Northerners have long suspected: Being cold makes you hungry.
In one study, people consumed 30% more calories at a meal when they had recently been subjected to cold. That’s a lot of extra calories! So bundle up this winter and if you do happen to get cold, be extra mindful of what you eat afterwards. Keep hot tea and hot brothy soups on hand and feel free to use this as justification for a few more long hot bubblebaths!
