Why we tend to eat less in the summer months?
Even if we don’t feel like it, we have to eat and drink, so what to choose? Something cold?
Ice cream, ice-cold juices, and frozen yogurt might seem like the obvious choice when we want to cool ourselves, but it’s not that simple. Cold food and drinks might give us an initial cooling effect, but it is short-lived. Consuming food leads to an increase in temperature as the process of digestion is heat-generating. If we combine this with rapid cooling caused by the ingestion of cold food and drinks, our body overcompensates by increasing the core temperature. We may actually end up feeling hotter than we did in the beginning.
Drinking something hot on a scorching hot day sounds unappealing, but it can help regulate your body temperature by making your core temperature rise, which in turn makes your body want to cool down. You start sweating and it has a cooling effect on your body.
Why should we drink at least 6 - 8 glasses of water every day?
