    For me the answer would probably be yes because in summer I HAVE to eat ice cream whereas in winter there is no such foods I HAVE to eat lol.

    The differences would be small I think, but reading about how the body works would lead me to think that due to the fact that the weather is colder in winter (not much in this country I know!!) your body uses up more calories in keeping itself warm. As a result your calorie defecit technically will increase when it is colder as your body works harder to keep itself warm. I don't think that the differences would be enough to make a big difference ....

    Anyone volunteer for an experiment? Do SS and sit in a freezer to see if you lose weight quicker :D

    I always lose more in summer, because I am more active and likely to be outdoors alot more. I guess it depends on your lifestyle, and will differ for different people.
