    Yup, definitely. All I seem to want to eat in the summer is yogurt, fruit, and cottage cheese, lol. Although it doesn’t work as well when you’re in an air-conditioned place, since you don’t feel the heat!

    A little. But more than suppressing my appetite, I just change the foods I eat. I like to joke that I could eat a watermelon by myself. So in quantity, I am eating the same volume of food, but it tends to be lighter all around.

    just a bit. More, it makes me start wondering what can I *possibly* eat that doesn’t involve cooking!

    It TOTALLY DOES. I often will go until 2-3 in the afternoon before I realize I HAVE TO EAT. The flip side to this is that I could eat an entire bakery or candy store in the winter 🙁

    Not that I have ever noticed. My appetite is generally the same regardless of the weather.

    It does unless I have my period, in which case the equator could not stand between me and a bag of BBQ potato chips.

    I’ve never noticed that…..but then I live in California so the weather doesn’t change all that drastically.

    Only during the day.  Nighttime is dangerous…
