Cold weather and hunger

Postby Angel » Wed May 10, 2006 4:01 pm

I can't win, in the hot weather I have no appetite and now its getting cold its like someone switched on my hunger button.

At the moment, inbetween meal times, I'll have a hot drink, usually a herbal tea before I eat anything but sometimes that doesn't work, only food will switch it off.

How does everyone handle increased hunger in winter?

I think a lot of people experience that during the colder months, so you're not alone that's for sure!

Why don't you make some of the WW no points soup that Dolly has mentioned before? It's yummy and warm and really good for you, so you could eat as much as it takes to turn off that nasty 'hunger button'.

If I get hungry on the TF diet, I eat some diet jelly or some no points soup (minus the carrot) and I'm ok.

Worth a shot and will definitely warm your tum :)

Angel, Hayley is right, having a pot of No Point Soup is a quick fix for the winter hungers - http://www.weightloss.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1507
other than that, I just keep drinking my decaffinated coffee.

or you could just exercise more to work it off :P
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Yes that is what I intend to do, if I feel really hungry go jump on the treadmill for a bit or take a walk. And then if I am still hungry afterwards then eat something. If I've been on the treadmill I am just totally knackered that I don't feel hungry for a while.

I find I usually get hungrier through winter. Hearty casseroles and soups with bread to dip in the gravy. Next to the heater of course.

Diet Jelly is my favourite dessert, I eat it every night, I'm also drink lots of herbal teas and chew Extra to try and stave off hunger. I had forgotten about WW no points soup so I'll give that a go again. Ooooooooooh and WW have a lovely pumpkin and leek soup that is delish too. Hope I don't get sick of soup! Extra exercise is not an option for me, I suffer from CFS and already exercise as much as my body allows.

I worked something out, I wasn't having enough at lunch time so by the time night falls I wanted to eat every thing. I have now fixed this (I hope) so should become a hoover at night time any more (fingers crossed :) ).

Thanks for your help,
Ange
