What is the biological/chemical pathway to appetite suppression in the case of hot weather? I can go through a rainy cool week with an increased appetite (separate from the idea of being trapped inside/bored), but as soon as temps break 75 degrees or so my appetite seems to plummet.
I could understand appetite regulation due to weather/seasons' change over the long term, but even an unexpectedly one-off hot day in a longer stretch of cool weather can instantly affect my appetite.
ETA per developments in the thread: One thing I consistently do crave in hot weather is juicy, often high-fructose fruits. (Watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, berries of all kinds, etc.)
However, since I'm trying to lose weight and animal proteins and fats constitute the bulk of my menu, I can say that hot weather definitely kills desire for fatty or animal protein heavy meals. Anybody else experience this? How do I stay full/blood sugar steady in hot weather when I don't crave my usual high fat moderate protein foods?
