I tend to eat a lot all the time.
I do not think I eat more in winter though not quite sure as maybe I do!

I comfort eat at night but do not eat a lot during the day - I have 3 meals a day with a coffee and something with it during the afternoon.

However, after dinner, I tend to start eating - awful habit!
by Finy
Finy that is just comfort eating....so I a while back had to just have a hot chocolate or a nice warm drink, in a bigger mug.Sip slowly....and in a few mins you won't want much else.
Totally understand, it's a habit a lot have (me too once)...and it could come back to me, if I am totally stressed.
I go to bed, if I find I want to nibble later after dinner, and get a good nights sleep...Dreaming is better than nibbling.lol.lol... :)

jonaj - yes I think I know that really.....i did at one stage go to bed instead of eating but after a while I found I took food to bed!!
If I have visitors I do not pig out like I do when on my own!
by Finy
No I don't.

I do however eat a lot more just before I am about to get sick (a cold or flu)... I will eat and eat and eat
I doubt that I would. The stomach can only fit so much whether it be summer or winter. I don't usually eat much at any time. Eating small meals and eating things that fill you up when you do eat, should stop the need to eat lots
I do not think I do. Its more what I eat than how much. Summer it's all about fruits and vegetables, lots to during and lighter meals. In the winter more hearty types of foods are in order. In winter for instance , I'll have porridge while in summer its fruit shakes.
I think one tends to want more hot meals, heavy soups in our house lots of veg...In fact! I have just made a large pot today.My son loves it, not too many calories, a good comfort food.Men esp like that stuff in winter I have found .
Best to have your big meal at Lunch time, and taper down for dinner if your a woman.

Hot drinks I find help with wanting food, and still keep me warm and fuzzy :)

Summer who cares about eating, it's mainly drinking and staying cool~~~
I don't feel as though I do because I tend to get full very quickly if it is a hot, heavy meal. Like others here, I can be prone to wanting to eat after dinner, though. Jonaj's idea of going to bed instead works for me too!

I do not eat more, so much as I tend to eat DIFFERENTLY in colder weather! I've always had a small appetite since childhood. Small servings of gorgeous stews, soups, and sometimes a yummy warm dessert tend to fill me up very quickly. Just as slightly larger-looking servings of summery meals fill me adequately!The secret with any meal, is to eat small amounts from your plate, and chew them thoroughly before swallowing! This gives the brain a chance to 'catch up' with how much more sustenance is actually required! When you feel full, it is so much easier to simply stop eating! Giving the brain this chance to 'catch up' means that you are not filling your mouth again before you are actually ready to have another mouthful! It is filling your mouth which makes you want to begin the chewing process again when it is not needed! My parents taught us to eat small mouthfuls slowly and chew thoroughly from as early an age as I can remember, They also said that if we left some food on our plates then we were definitely FULL!! So it is a matter of eating more slowly, rather than eating more.
I pretty much eat the same all year round

Not really, that's why I don't gain weight in winter. I eat like I normally eat all year long.
