We know that usually when in wintertime our bodies naturally focus more on survival than on aesthetics in the main.
We also know that we tend by default often to change our eating habits in winter or soon before but then we get to that bit where we have to actually adjust the settings on our indoor refrigerators because the cold has passed and the weather is actually warming up and we need to make sure that our food is at lesser risk of contamination, yes we even put some food such as dairy produce etc in parts of the refrigerator where it might be cooler (depending on what type of refrigeration you have). Similarly our bodies in some cases can for a variety of reasons want to find ways of lessening the risk of gaining even more weight when it is not necessary required. Factors such as health issues or depression and not actually alerting your mind in some cases can possibly too play even a far greater and are potentially kind of quite complex.
Your natural body clock is one thing but our habits are sometimes seasonal and inherent as in that we have developed a way of telling our bodies that some things such as eating more or different things at such times as required is a basic and integral survival instinct.
To imply that at night time when weather may be cooler in some places that somehow we maybe burn off more calories or use less i think is potentially contentious and could depend on your weight, activity and the type of food you eat. Some say that the best meal of the day is breakfast, i met a chef recently who worked at a kebab shop but trained in a french restaurant who did actually suggest that this is a consideration. Certainly if you examine the french dietary structure they seem to eat more sweeter food at breakfast time than for example brits and If you look at twins where one is larger than the other you may find that the slimmer of the two eats a greater density of fibrous foods.
It’s not about throwing a spanner in the works, but it might be about cranking up your strategy a little?
We also know that it is virtully unthinkable for french people to be likely to go out on a drink session straight from work without eating beforehand or enjoying a meal with with alcohol as a complement.
Evening mealtimes in places such as France and Spain can be different by up to two hours with the French often commencing an evening meal earlier but then again the weather factor in both France and Spain can differ considerably too and in Spain they may have had a siesta during the day when the sun is at it’s hottest and for example be having tapas meal with any alcohol consumption in the evening.
A recommendation therefore could be that you weigh yourself today and obviously really attempt to incorporate more activity in to your daily routine, start off with a more fibrous meal and not necessarily huge also incorporate more fiber during day. A pear skin for example is fibrous, and they are great helping with digestion.
Eat smaller meals (a few during the day) though with your breakfast being more substantial than your evening meal, and attempt to bring your evening meal forward by a couple of hours certainly if you eat into later evenings and try to eat less then with a small substantial but light meal maybe very early evening or 4pm if at home or during that tea break. If thinking of drinking alcohol, think carefully and try eat well before or with, rather than after. Don’t just rush to the pub and consume copious amounts of alcohol which then will often turn to sugar anyway and try to compensate with binges of food you might not usually eat, or maybe you would?
If you do, don’t stress over it. Don’t become unhappy. Think, change your habits.
Think really carefully. Enjoy. Learn to enjoy enjoyment and in others responsibly.
Eat evening meal earlier/ before or if drinking alcohol
consider (where possible) with.
Try to incorporate exersize.
Try read this again and
think really carefully, because you know you can!
If you deal with it, try weighing yourself in a month too/again
but there is no hurry!
