DO WE NEED MORE FOOD IN WINTERS
Post by Rupali Datta, RD on Thursday, November 24, 2022
Winter makes us crave for more food probably because we need more effort to warm our bodies. Technically our calorie requirements remain the same, but our hunger pangs do increase.
How should we handle this without derailing our health?
• Understand that our digestive system is more efficient in winters, so choosing food high in nutrients will help us feel satisfied.
• Add soups, grilled vegetables and nuts and seeds as snacks to prevent eating more
• Make sure you have those 2 fruits daily to satiate the sweet cravings
