Few of us can boast of an ideal figure in winter. Usually we all relax and gain extra pounds. After all, no one will notice under voluminous fur coats and puffs that we have extra centimeters in the waist or hips area, which means we can be pampered with what we were denied before, for example, with our favorite cake or a slice of pizza.

In a frosty winter, our body requires significantly more energy to maintain normal body temperature. All processes in our body are slower, including the digestion of food. Therefore, at this time of year the metabolism is slower than in summer.
- Incorrect food. In winter, you need to pay attention to the calorie content of food. In the cold season it should be higher, because the body needs more energy. But it should not be forgotten that all the extra calories immediately settle in our adipose tissue. In everything there should be a measure.
- Sedentary lifestyle. In bad weather, we don’t feel like walking on the street and we spend most of our free time at home on the couch near the TV. Meanwhile, everything that we ate, is deposited in our waist, as we eat more calories than we can spend.
- Lack of the hormone of happiness - serotonin. In winter, when the day becomes short, we lack the sun.
