Does anyone else think it is way easier to eat healthy and lose weight in the summer? I noticed it before when I was just counting calories, and I am noticing the same thing on Medifast. In the winter, I am always cold. I hate drinking anything cold. I want to eat warm, heavy, filling comfort foods and carby stuff. I crave creamy soups, potatoes, pasta, baked goods, stuff like that. But now it is getting hot and once again I am craving cool, fresh produce: lots of salads, tomatoes, cucumbers, and other cool crunchy fresh local veggies. I also LOVE eating icy cold stuff, which right now means a lot of slushy things, shakes, and smoothies made from Medifast shake mixes, puddings, and cold drinks. I drink more water and unsweetened iced tea, too. And my appetite is far less when it is hot! Add more activity due to good weather, and you have a combination of factors that helps me stay on plan.
How about you? Is it easier for you to stay on plan in the summer?
