We can be tempted to eat fats, refined carbs and sugary foods when it is cold outside and we are feeling sluggish.

This not only creates weight gain, but reaching for these foods will only make us crash after the initial energy rush, creating a vicious cycle.

Eat more high GI foods such as complex carbohydrates to keep you feeling sated for longer. Healthy fats such as oily fish, nuts and seeds, will improve your mood and brain function.
