Yes it does especially on rainy days. I think its the metabolism in my body creating heat to warm itself up so I get hungry very fast during rainy days - is this theory valid I wonder...ahahah!!!!

That is also what I was thinking... I get hungry when it is very cold too, during summer I get hungry too. I only don't get very hungry during moderate climates....

For me its more of what I do that make me eat more or less. Usually when I am doing more of the physical things, I would crave for more food. I believe its just natural considering that food is converted into energy. Of course if you work more physically then you would need more fuel. Best to you!

Yup, the weather does affect my appetite. When it's hot, I just don't feel like eating; but when it's cold, I tend to eat more!

In my country the summers are very hot ,sticky and humid. At that time one loses ones appetite because one feels more thirsty than hungry. During the monsoon and winter months when the weather is cool and pleasant then one really gets a ravenous appetite and one tends to eat more.In my case the same thing happens to me and i tend to eat heartily in winter and less in summer. However i am careful not to over eat or eat less than my normal intake in the winter and summer resply.This discipline ensures that i am neither fat nor thin but evenly balanced.

well, i must say that i eat more when it`s raining. you might be asking why, but i`ll tell you that. I`m just eating more when it`s rainy outsite, because i can`t do so many things in the house, and so, if i don`t have nothing to do, i usually eat a lot. I`m an active guy, but when i really don`t have anything to do, i just eat. Not every 30 minutes, but i think that i eat at 90 minutes again.

I am the opposite....because it's hotter in the summer I find I drink a great deal more and the amount I eat is greatly reduced. Whereas in the winter I tend to put on more weight eating stodgy, hot foods like pies and stews etc. which help warm me up in the winter months...not only that but what with it being Christmas in winter....well the weight shoots on.

for me, i think no. it's not exactly the weather but what the weather "forces" me to do...like, for example, in rainy days i'm forced to stay indoors, and when i'm indoors i get physically inactive , i get bored, and i tend to stay around the kitchen ...either eating, or hanging out talking with people....or keep myself busy mylotting & chatting - and all these activties calls for snacks. all the unhealthy , junk food, delicious snaks i crave for.

Hello! Sometimes the weather does effect my appetite.Specially I feel awkward in summer.Because of excessive heat in the summer the stomach gets upset and the loss of appetite occur.For eating lot of good foods,winter is the best season.thanx.

I personally eat more inthe winter, for some reason. If Im out in the outdoors, hiking or something, I tend to eat more, to get the energy and warmth that I no doubt will require

We do not have different seasons where I live. So I cannot really tell if I eat more during a particular season or not. But I do eat a little more during the colder weather of the countries I visited. And depending on my activity, I will eat more when I am active.

The weather definitely affect my appetite. If I am too hot and uncomfortable I can't think about eating. What I do eat will be light like fruit or salad. Someone mentioned the affect of having more liquids and maybe that is a factor.
