Moody Foods: Eating According To Season

Even though I can boast many a late night clubbing back in my college days, I was NEVER much of a night-owl. In fact, ironically enough while everyone else was winding down from our late nights out on the town, I would start to wind back up just as the sun made its reappearance, often over breakfast and coffee at a local diner.

In fact, I function best during the day, and when it’s sundown, it’s pretty much “lights out” for me. In fact I often joke that the only way I get things done past sundown, especially with it’s early advent in the winter is with the help of my good friend “Joe”, or as I like to call it: enthusiasm and personality in a cup.

And, while this is a year round occurrence for me, some suggest that the winter “blahs” are a more serious condition of winter blues known as seasonal affective disorder, in which the dank and dreary weather results in a dark and dreary mood.

But, besides slowing folks like us down, or making us feel productive, enthusiastic and energetic, it can also have another “negative” side affect; weight gain. And, experts say that its not just because we’re less inclined to move more or because our bodies are “storing fat” for the winter. It’s actually because those with seasonally initiated “moody blues” craves more carbs, and breads and pasta are tops on the list.
